    Mr Think, seems like you should be an ideal candidate.
    Nowt too onerous in meeting these conditions
    “Winners will be staying with a local family, to experience first-hand the life in the Falkland Islands.”
    “The ideal winner should be active in social media and willing to share his/her experience about the Falkland Islands through these channels.”
    “The contest is meant to promote the cultural exchange between the Falklands and the region, and to spread the knowledge about the Falkland Island and its people.”

    Seems like the application profile is specifically tailored to receive your bid! Should be an easy walkover for you.

    Indeed it would Mr. Falklandad...

    The catch is..., that my “Student” days are looong past...

    Anyhow..., did you notice that my link to last fortnight Torygraph article about the financial failures of Egrish Premier Oil and Rockflopper Exploration in the Malvinas Pirate Oil adveture misteriously dissapeared...?

    We don't want to scare no auld Kelper ladies..., do we...?

    Never too late for an old dog to turn new tricks; you should get your scholarship application in. The Falklands might soon be well positioned to offer exile status to Mr Macri if his woes escalate much further. He could subscribe... how do you say it, an Honorary Fellow, for trying his best...
    As for The Telegraph, normally a great read and much favoured over that leftist, liberalist clap trap Guardian/Observer, but the article you quote was a missile or two short of its mark; a disappointment for you.

    Mr. Falklanlad...

    Are you trying to tell me that an article about Pobjyoy's blue titanium 1 Crown crab coin with Qiueen Lizzy on the reverse is more important than the future ov the Oil business in Malvinas...?

    Anyhow..., if somebody is wondering what I'm talking about...:

    **“TIME IS RUNNING OUT for Premier Oil’s plan to find the funds it needs to drill for oil in the DISPUTEDWAERS around the Falkland Islands...
    THE DEBT-WRACKED oil company has hired Standard Chartered to pull together a syndicate of banks to fund its hunt for more than 500m barrels of oil by the end of the year...
    But City sources have warned that Premier’s slow progress means the beleaguered project is UNLIKELY TO MEET A PRESSIG FINANCIAL DEADLINE.***”-

    Sounds like a MALVINEXIT to me...
    Chuckle..., chuckle...

    Rodge..., Rodge...
    I really like your quasi-perfect denigrative Engrish bobby style...
    Ya 'ave spent years in here praising that ENGRISH PIRATE OIL MISSISSIPPI BUBBLE IN MALVINAS..., only to call it “irrelevant” the minute it bursts...
    But you blinked..., laddie...;-)))
