Complicated challenges ahead for the Falkland Islands as the Brexit deadline inexorably approaches. While the Falklands Government has made public assurances that it has worked hard to ensure the impact of Brexit on the Falklands... Read full article

    I thought it was the EU that was not prepared to talk about the Overseas Territories (all of them)? So, surely it is the EU's attitude that needs changing?
    Shouldn't those Spanish companies that actually do the importing into the EU be making a case?

    What is the problem? the EU market will still be available for the products of the FI fisheries. The tariff and quota will only make the access conditions more realistic (in terms of competition with other producers)

    They need fiish in the EU they will come for fish to the Falklands, if there isn't a deal this month it will not pass next month. We needed to get out and we did so just in time.

    Güeón — please pay attention: It would be wise to be respectful in your posts.

    Otherwise, your repeated falsely accusing innocent persons of heinous war crimes —solely because of their loyal service to their nation, may result in some unpleasant consequences.

    Yes — I know that the wooden yoke of matrimony weighs heavy on one's shoulders — but I becomed too docile and tamed to bravely shed the domination — I've grown accustomed to... ...perhaps afraid also...

    Enjoy your Champagne celebration — even some of the Republicans are cheering!

    I've already conceded that the Democrat Party has successfully stole the USA presidency through Dominion software manipulation. (The Maduro government of Venezuela accomplished the same crime with the same culprits.)

    This one particular woman you share — reflects a wide sentiment of a number of poll workers who have submitted sworn testimony that they witnessed fraud. (Some voting districts had more voters than the actual voter population.)

    (If indeed she is like your former trouble & strife — I completely sympathize with you.)

    In any case, Trump will fight this to the bitter end — but Biden will assume the Whitehouse in January. The election was a complete fraud.

    The “leader of the free world” will be a senile president with a very treacherous vice-presidential crafty Indian-Jamacan-Canadian educated woman that will probably will assume the Presidency when Biden resigns perhaps due to illness...

    Thankfully, those rich norteamericanos will continue to improve their diet by consuming increased quantities of avocados which is a versatile delicious superfood!

    2021 it seems to have a dark outlook — which I hope to be mistaken about.

    Memento Mori..., Shicuréo..., Memento Mori...

    You sound about your Avocados as many farmers up here in la bella Italia sounded about that damn Kiwis in the 80's...

    Everything is a “Vouge de la Mode” in the food business these days..., if you catch me drift...

    I remember that me Mom wouldn't feed us avocados because..., in those days..., they were considered veritable fat bombs (as they still are... ;-)

    Poly - Mono - Unsaturated..., doesn't matter..
    - Soon some smart-ass Internet Influencer will find something baaad to say 'bout avocados and we'll all be back to Brussel Sprouts...

    Oh yes, memento mori indeed! We exist in a highly perilous business — frequented with petulant politics, labor unrest, port strikes, droughts and the wrath of Mother Nature herself.

    (Then again it could perhaps be a smart-ass internet-influencer that declares the glories of pork bacon being far superior to avocados on hamburgers — but I think both compliments your general health as well as melted cheese.)

    I'm also painfully aware of all the risks of a changing market for agricultural crops. There were actual news reports of New Zealand kiwi growers committing suicide just a few years ago.

    In 1987 our norteamericano friends miraculously somehow found TWO grapes injected with cyanide at the port of Philadelphia.

    If it was not for our government — our family farm would have be ruined.

    Other than the two berries found in a single box of an entire shipload arrival — the FDA-USDA authorities could not find another “cyanide injected berry”.

    Regarding the evil debate about FATS — frankly I see it all as another scare tactic. One of the valuable advantages of being married to a great cook (that enthusiastically prepares an exceptionally varied menu) — and she strives to keep us away from junk processed food.

    Anyway — I'm cheered that vegetarians, vegans and fast food restaurants are all advocating the marvelous avocado superfood — but if that wanes we can borrow money to replace with vineyards to complement our grape production. (Table or perhaps to wine.)

    Speaking of evil FATS — I've arrived back to Chicureo, and Madame has prepared a charcuterie board of jamón Ibérico, goat cheese, olives, cherry tomatoes, cornichons, honey roasted pecans and garlic buttered toasted sourdough.

    This accompanied with a magnificent Carménère that I've just pulled a cork.

    I Think I remember that operation...

    Organized by some veteran DINA/CNI operatives to cheaply “diversify” into farming prior to their imminent cease of activities..., if me memory doesn't fail....

    It was not organized by veteran DINA/CNI operatives and you know that.

    Hundreds of growers were affected and thousands of people involved in the fruit export industry was punished by a ridiculous scenario.

    Now of course, legitimate avocado growers today are being linked to unscrupulous farmers that illegally steal water from drought affected aquifers — and try to blame the entire industry.

    Esqiusmi..., hermanito...

    You have now..., for more than three weeks..., without even blushing once..., without any shadow of proof..., ranted and accused hundreds of thousands of Yank election volunteers..., the whole Yank judiciary system... and more than half of the Yank population of being involved in a giant antidemocratic conspiracy against that “great man of the people” Trump...

    But..., when I mention a very plausible scenario..., one that has been used and abused several times in a Country you live very close to..., you immediately stall and deny...

    Ever heard about the concept of “Follow the Money”..., hermanito...?

    - Try..., if you dare..., to look how many “Familar Milico Names” are in the list of buyers of the many farms that couldn't survive that “Communist” plot of 1989...

    It's best you did change subjects, but there were many supporters of September 11, that embraced the export opportunities in agriculture.

    There was a brief decade where fruit exporters made fortunes... ...and then — many went into bankruptcy...

    Some exporters wisely reinvested into their operations and others were unable to pay their debt service.

    Changing subjects — reports from 'The Young Turks' are sincerely beneath your intellect — but I would have never married a woman like protrayed in your shared video.

    I do not pretend to have a perfect match, but Melissa reminds me of why men wisely seek solace from marital Hell.

    Regardless the one who calls Eisenhower evil has shown how fascist you are, against the one who destroyed Hitler. Neither were charged, let alone convicted. But, thanks for reconfirming you are both a liar, and criminal libeller.
    “Sufficient incriminating evidence” absolute rubbish all that claim sans proof does, is convict you out of your own mouth.

    In reference to all my prestigious varied multiple allegations — I can only mention that TERENCE HILL leads an exciting and dynamic entertaining lifestyle:

    Besides having over 300 TV channel access in his mother's basement — Terence boasts that his microwave preparation of commercial frozen fast food is sublime.

    Relying on your unsupported opinion to justify your libelling doesn't get you off the hook. Failure to meet your of proof means that your claim must be false according to:
