    You are absolutely right..., honourable Summers...
    Such practices are illegal nowadays..., and must be reacted upon...

    Now that we agreed about one of the many problems affectting Argentina..., what about doing some local work in Malvinas...?

    - You could start by answering the very logical request of Mr. Tim Miller...

    After all..., most of you in them windblown Isles eat his fresh veggies...

    The affairs of the peoples of the British S. Atlantic/Antarctic territories, are of no concern to a Kurepi Planter in Argy occupied S. America.

    You should be worrying about a Mapuche uprising, one planter one bullet.

    Thankyou for ongoing support Think! But Im not expecting a reply anytime soon though.
    Hope your Fisheries Dept does jump hard and fast on the discards issue though.

    Mr. Timlander1...

    Taking into account the huge amount of monies involved in the new Estanley port project...

    Considering some of the local squidllonaires “authorities.” complete disregard of the reasonable request of one of their not all to unimportant senior citizens...

    I am tempted to Think that the honourable MLA Summers could be involved in some...: “Standard Engrish corruption...”
