    El Think, spare a thought for it being spring time in these latitudes and spring is flush with lambs - or are you on a pre-Brexit trip to the 'ole homeland (while it still exists). Unlike turkey's not every lamb volunteers for Xmas lunch...

    “we the Falkland Islands government kept our side of the bargain that everything would be released on the same day – it was the Argentine government that leaked it not us.”

    So, having got an answer as to why this announcement was made before the open meeting/consultation (presentation really - as this appears (?) to have been signed off for 4 years before the Islanders were finally to be consulted re. the details) - the next question, is why did Argentina leak the information before the Macri/May meeting?

    My best guess would be that Macri didn't wish to be associated with it.
