    Pure Narnia - ”Unfortunately in the previous four years there was a certain backtracking because government did not apply the necessary emphasis that the issue demands when claiming Argentine sovereignty over those territories and adjacent sea“

    The Gulf of Maine case, the ICJ has also stated that, ‘The thrust of this principle is to establish by implication that any delimitation of the continental shelf effected unilaterally by one state regardless of the views of the other state or states concerned is in international law not opposable to those states,’ and ‘No delimitation between states with opposite or adjacent coasts may be effected unilaterally by one of those states.’ And ‘the delimitation of the exclusive economic zone between states with opposite or adjacent coasts shall be affected by agreement on the basis of international law...’ (ICJ Case Concerning Delimitation of Maritime Boundary, Gulf of Maine area, Canada/USA, 12 Oct 1984, P50, para 87 p52, para 95 & p57, para 112(i). The UK has ratified UNCLOS in respect of the Falkland Islands.

    “or have good manners for that matter” - no surprise there - the last thing you would expect from this Argentine government is ”good manners“ -

    In fact if I were the UK Government I would be extremely suspicious if the Argentine Government ever displayed ”good manners” as its not in their nature.

    Lying, obfuscation, corruption - they are far more likely.

    Thank you for your (sort of) civility. (See how civil we are here?)

    I come from a multi-general family that grew basically food crops until la Unidad Popular government of Allende stole (expropriated) most of our farmland — using the Marxist altruistic philosophy — the needs of the many outweigh the property of the few.

    I actually loved your great country, and was thrilled to visit Mendoza in the early '70s where everything was bigger and better — you could buy all the food you wanted without waiting in line or having to use government issued ration coupons.

    In 1978 your kleptomaniac country came very close to invading ours. During that time, I was a student here at a prestigious English school and although my family could not afford paying for my university studies, my nation generously provided me with a full scholarship to our naval academy.

    I have stated on numerous occasions that it was regrettable that the lives of 3 to 4 thousand people lost their lives during our civil war. It's also regrettable that approximately 30,000 of your countrymen suffered the same fate during yours (although the evil harvesting of babies by your government was completely unforgivable.)

    I did NOT participate in ANY “crimes against humanity” atrocities during my military service and enjoyed an unblemished career, including under the freely Democratically elected presidents of my wonderful country. (I was even fortunate to receive extensive training in the UK on several occasions.)

    Today, I produce healthy sustainable food and provide employment as well as tax revenues for my country.

    What exactly do you do Guillote in contributing to your society?

    I wrote “Tá mé i mo chónaí gar Baile an Fheirtéaraigh agus Daingean Uí Chúis sa Gaeltacht in Contae Chiarraí, poblacht na hÉireann”

    There are four clues in this statement as to where I live:-

    1. It’s written in Irish

    2. Gaeltacht – which means ‘Irish speaking area’

    3. Baile an Fheirtéaraigh agus and Daingean Uí Chúis – are both place names

    4. Contae Chiarraí – means ‘County Kerry’

    5. poblacht na hÉireann – means ‘Republic of Ireland’

    I’m well aware that the Argentine education system places a very low importance on geography and sovereignty but I feel that from those clues you should be able to work out where I come from.

    I was born in W. Africa, I now live in Gloucestershire, England.

    I’m not sure what you mean by “real britsh”, I’m what’s now called, “a white privileged male”, with as common English names as it is possible to have.

    Whilst English was not my “first language” it is my “mother tongue”. I generally speak English with a London accent, however I’m perfectly capable of speaking Queens English when I choose.

    Not sure how you would distinguish me from the “real britsh”, as no one ever suspects I was not born here, only know if I choose to tell them.

    Since we are all exchanging information civilly, here are some thoughts for you to consider...

    As many of us are obviously polyglots, you can't hide ignorance in Castellano.

    It would be helpful for you to consult a dictionary and/or an encyclopedia before making asinine statements. For example, CIVIL WAR is defined: “a war between citizens of the same country.” Despite your opinion, we experienced a civil war.

    Alłende became our president with only a 36.2% plurality in 1970. (That means 63.8% did not vote for Allende.)

    I vividly remember when Fidel Castro spent an entire month in my country. Private property was expropriated (stolen) and we experienced something similar to what's happening today in Venezuela today.

    People died. It was very sad. (The most respected international report states 2,279 people were executed, others claim over 3,000 disappeared.)

    That's what happens in a civil war — people die...

    Chile today is a democracy with an independent central bank. (That alone, pisses people off.)

    I have always loved and admired your country. It is far superior to my mine in ALMOST every aspect. Exactly a century ago, your country was the 5th wealthiest country in the world! However living next door to you, has caused us to suspect that you cannot be trusted — especially regarding territory and money. (Again, your country has a far superior national dance and your financial analistas are smoking hot.)

    Since we are your inferior cousins, we work harder. We demand accountability from our government and we do not tolerate corruption. We respect private property and honor our financial obligations.

    Regarding BREXIT: Chris McGlade recites his 2018 poem “The Right To Hate”, from his hometown in the north of England.  A working man’s view of left-wing intolerance and globalists. https://youtu.be/ZcWB6nfB0tw

    Finally, I politely ask you again — what are you doing personally to contribute to your own society Guilotte?

    They don't translate very easily.

    The anglicised versions are 'Ballyferriter' and 'Dingle'.

    'agus' just means 'and' (sort of)

    Ferriter is a local family name and so sort of means Ferriter's place'

    The 'Chuis' part of 'Daingean Uí Chúis' seems to be (but may not be) an ancient Irish family/tribe so could mean 'Chuis's rath'. Rath is a late Iron Age fortified farmstead of which there are many remnants of on the Dingle Peninsula including one half way up a hill in one of our fields

    The brutal '73 coup d'état was necessary to save my nation from complete Marxist destruction. (I did not take part nor cheer the human rights violations that took place in the aftermath, and admit it was regrettable that some of the people had to die.)

    Absolute power does corrupt, but fortunately Pinochet was relatively honest and was able to allow us to restructure our country into a successful democracy we have today. The Chicago Boys provided us with a roadmap to economic success and the progress we have today.

    One thing we have learned is the intoxicating elixir of Marxism and Peronism are not philosophies of social progress, but instead are corrosive acids that burns through everything they touch.

    Socialists defame my nation by quoting the highly misleading Gini coefficient showing the gap in income inequality, and yet it is directly the fault of the freely elected socialist politicians — that have been directly responsible in encouraging a large unskilled mass immigration. (Chile has enjoyed a freely elected democracy for 3 decades.)

    One of the major reasons for social unrest in my country can be directly attributed to the post-dictatorship democracy of our socialist presidential administrations — and yet the blame is unfairly placed upon Piñera.

    Your mythical las islas Malvinas you've been brainwashed that somehow rightfully belongs to you — are located somewhere in the mythical el Mar Argentino, that can be found somewhere betwixt Atlantis and Tír na nÓg.

    The brutal truth is that your corrupt government is distracting your attention away from the truth — that they have been systematically looting your great national wealth leaving your country almost a beggar in seeking capital to repay your outrageous national debt. Your country's finances are one enormous Ponzi scheme.

    My advice to you is to continue working in what is transforming our societies positively, but do find a way to finish your studies. I wish you sincerely good luck!

    Definitely think you should take a remedial course in Castellano composition. (Wrong language, poor grammar and terrible punctuation are not helping your pathetic and weak arguments.)

    To your questions:

    Actually, Pinochet received a higher percentage of voters supporting him in the 1988 plebiscite (44.01% wanted him to continue as president vs compared to Allende ironically winning the presidency with only 36.2% of the popular vote in 1974.)

    On a scale of 1 to 10 — Pinochet was a 1 or 2 on the corruption scale. The past presidents of Argentina rank so corruptly, that going over the maximum scale is a practiced and expected Argentine normality. (Not paying taxes is your national sport.)

    We've already covered the “civil war” debate, that you speculate about, but I actually lived through it. It interesting your silence about the 30,000 Argentine disappeared.)

    Economically my family was nearly bankrupt and had lost most of our land in 1973. It was only because of us taking extraordinary risks and by going even more deeply in debt as well as adapting to alternative crops on what was considered worthless rocky hillsides, did we see eventual profitability 4 decades later.

    So yes, we do understand why we earn more income that medical doctors — the just as a soya or corn farmer in your country does as well. (The factors of RISK-REWARD-COST-BENEFIT play a big part in capitalistic societies.)

    In any case, I've finished debating with you as I'm spending time with my family in the Andes snow for a couple of weeks to enjoy.

    We have told you where we are, it is about the same distance from the Falklands as Spain and Italy (where your forbears came from) are from Buenos Aires.

    As for “the Empire”, it is strange that we only ever hear this from foreigners like you. Nobody here thinks like that and hasn’t really done so for at least the last 50 years or more.

    Whilst I wouldn’t presume to speak for darragh, I somehow doubt they miss the Empire where he lives. In fact I would go as far as to say it is probably as “crass” a statement as it is possible to make, to someone from that part of the world.

    Argentine diplomacy in action eh.

    But then intellect obviously isn’t your strong point, I’m beginning to wonder if you have relatives in Canada.

    Over their capacity to comprehend...

    Tomorrow, Madame and I will we'll be at the farmhouse for the bathroom installations and Friday — at Valle Nevado enjoying our new apartment with our nomadic clan. Although the resort is officially closed, weather permitting, we'll have some of the grandchildren on a gentile slope teaching them how to snowplow. (Children do not spread the Covid19 virus and should be allowed to attend school.)

    Hundreds of millions of people's lives worldwide are being completely destroyed by this idiotic economic shutdown. There are currently people literally starving.

    For ourselves, life is good and despite the pandemic we are thriving and thankful for all the blessings we have.

    By the way, if you want a healthy, satisfying and delicious menu idea, try avocados.

    Also, despite no evidence that enjoying a good Chilean wine will save you from death, you'll at least greatly enjoy the remainder of your precious time alive.

    ¡Saludos!

    Yes, Guillote does not understand what he is being told, I wonder if it is a case of deliberately not understanding because it’s not the answer he is looking for, or is he really that thick?

    I’m erring on the side of, he really is that thick.

    “Thankful for all the blessings we have.” Amen to that.

    Some one once said, if you don’t drink, smoke or do drugs, you won’t live forever, it will just feel like it.

    Tea totallers, when they get up in the morning, that is the best they are going to feel all day.
