    Poor old Think, we don't need a lame excuse, or indeed any excuse at all. We are simply going about our normal, legal business withe the cooperation of a friendly, helpful neighbour of yours. You could learn a lot from your neighbour. Do you never ask yourself why so few countries have so little interest in your endless whining about islands that were never yours anyway ?

    If only you could get your hands on those islands your future would be so much brighter, no more worries about a faltering economy, no more worries about what the next excuse to the IMF will be, no more inflation, no more ------------------ etc etc.

    Dream on !

    56,634 deaths in Argentina from the virus out of 44.94 million people Mr. Think. That's is God's judgment on a people who covert what is not theirs.

    The Anglo Turnip above says...:
    - ***“ 56,634 deaths in Argentina from the virus out of 44.94 million people Mr. Think. That's is God's judgment on a people who covert what is not theirs.”***
    (That gives a regreatable toll of 1,244 death human beingd x 1 Mill Pop.)

    I say...:
    126,927 deaths in the United Kingdom from the virus out of 68.16 million people Mr. Turnip. (That gives a regreatable toll of some 1,862 death human beings x 1 Mill Pop.

    What was that Anglo Turnip above saying 'bout God...?

    I am not British Mr.Think where I come from only 909 have died. You die in great numbers because you covert another man's land, that is God's will and so it will come to pass that more will die from it. Mend your ways.

    @Think: What “lame excuse”? And why doesn't it work any more? At the moment, there is no other reason to travel to South America.

    Troll FitzRoy...

    As you would be aware..., if you had some awareness..., I do tend to keep my interacting with Anglo Turnips & Trolls down to minimum...
    It could be contagious...:-(

    If you want to know..., inform yourself...
    If not..., keep trolling on the empty seas as usual...
    Paraphrasing some of your meaningless trolling from another thread...:
    ***“What a funny little troll Fitz Roy is.”***

    And it came to pass, that in the land of the fools Silver a Mr. Think mocked the word of the righteous living in the great and glorious land of the righteous Falkanders.

    God looked down on this Mr. Think and sadly shook his head that Mr. Think could be so,cruel and thus God decreed that many in the land of Fools Silver should thus be struck down with a cruel disease.

    So it came to pass in the year of our lord 2020? 21 that fire and brimstone rained down in the form of COVID 19 on all people living in the land of Fools Silver and a loud voice boomed from the darkened sky over the land of Fools Silver saying, This is the voice of Marcelo The Goat, heed the word of God you heathens. I HAVE GIVEN THE LAND OF THE FALKLANDS TO THE RIGHTEOUS, THE ONES YOU KNOW AS KELPERS. BEGONE YOU HEATHENS BEFORE I SEND a plague of Frogs to torment you. And it came to pass on this day of our Lord 4/8/2021 that the foolish MrThink mocked Marcelo The Goat and his people took no notice of Marcelo The Goat and a further 600 died from the virus.

    Hardly a troll Think, and if I were I am hardly on the same level of “trollness” as you. So what you are actually saying, if I interpret your last, directed at me, is that you don't actually have anything to say? I am informed and am completely unaware of anything substantial that your debt-ridden government can do, or are willing to do. You purport to be some kind of all-seeing, all-knowing oracle and when we, the masses, hungry for the pearls of wisdom that drip from your keyboard, ask for guidance, we find you empty. Oh well.

    Think- It was a Humanitarian medevac Flight. They happen. Usually they are with Santiago, Chile- and always approved by Argentina- but that means aircraft spends over an hour overflying Argentina- current Covid situation means borders basically closed so last thing- Chile-Falklands and Argentina want is a Chilean plane and crew and Falklands patient having to land in Argentina somewhere due to a mechanical problem.
    So basic commonsense says direct flight over the sea to Montevideo on the Ur coast- offload patient to Hospital there with no direct physical contact between onboard Falklands medical staff and Ur staff on tarmac- = no Covid spread risk rules broken and patient can move to where the care IS that the patient needs.

    Argentina regularly complains about UK military ships and planes going to Uruguay and Brazil.

    Nothing ever happens, it’s almost as if they don’t take Argentina too seriously.

    However I wouldn’t worry too much about a plague of frogs, it seems the Midionites took care of the Goat for you.
