    dearie me, when will Rosana wake up and realise that the policies of her party over the last 15 years have embedded a very strong and influential Falkland Islands fishing industry which delivers the pillar of the Falklands Government revenues.

Argentina has contributed little, and very probably nothing, towards the sustainable management of fishery resources within the wider SW Atlantic, and attitudes persisting within Rosana's province have merely perpetuated overfishing within the boundaries of her alleged fishing resources.

    If Argentine fantasy logic is followed to its obvious conclusion, then the South West Atlantic Fisheries Scientific Sub Committee meetings already have Tierra del Fuego representatives ;-)

    Surely Tierra del Fuego as a political entity didn't exist until fairly recently compared with the UK sovereignty over the Falklands archipelago. So how can they justify their assertions? They can't!
