    How things have change when reality bites...

    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.'

    Why's it taking so long Jorge?

    More steady progress towards the inevitable development of the Falkland Islands energy sector. Some people will be slobbering in their gin wondering what to do with all the spare coffin nails, but we will march steadily on. Let's hope that in the better current geo-political environment the Chilean/Magellanes oil industry will get themselves a slice of work, as well as Uruguayan and Brazilian companies.

    Now where have I heard that before “England will return the Malvinas in 25 years” . Oh yes that was back in the early 1970's and immediately after the 1982 conflict . Guess we will be seeing the same statement twenty five years down the road “The Barron”. Actually I believe that Argentina will still be saying that 200 years down the road.
