    We've come along way since -

    Regarding Falklands oil exploration, Argentine Foreign Minister Jorge Taiana stated in February 2010, that his Government would take 'all measures necessary to preserve our rights' and also reiterated that Argentina had a permanent claim' on the islands, saying 'Buenos Aires would complain to the UN over the oil project and might take the case to the International Courts of Justice in the Hague.' (British Drilling For Falklands Oil Threatens Argentine Relations, Pope, F. , 13 Feb 2010 and Potential Drilling off Falkland, Provokes Tension Between Argentina & UK, IRRU News, 17 Feb 2010).

    Nobody will know for sure until the decision is made but it’s looking increasingly promising. We’ll be ready to respond quickly when we know but if it doesn’t happen now, or ever, so be it. We have a very sound economy either way.

    So what do the Malvinista deadbeats fancy at present?
    There is oil? or
    It’s Argentine oil so get you hands off it?
    ...or are you just going to continue sitting up on that safe old fence?

    I say there IS oil and that it is Falklands oil.

    I thought Rockhopper shares must have been on the rise because we haven’t had Mike Bingham giving us updates for a while.

    Firstly, it's the U.K Juana, and you cannot return something that was never Argentine.
