    And where will the 'Falklands Islands Government' get the money for this silly jolly - from the British taxpayer. What a waste of our money.

    Not so simple..., Mr. Pytangua...

    - The money for this silly jolly comes from the Pirate Fishing Licenses on the Argentinean Sea sold by the Global British Local Colonial Goverment..., enabled by the British Armed Farces..., paid by the British taxpayers...

    Tænking about it..., you are right... Mr. Pytangua... ;-)))

    It was only 40 years ago that Argentina sent boys not much older than schoolchildren on an all expenses paid trip to the islands. They were told to expect grateful Hispanic population cheering their liberation.

    What they found was an English speaking population who didn't want them there, and ultimately many found that the lies told by their government would ultimately lead to their deaths.

    Of course today, Argentina don't send children to die for them, they send pathetic keyboard warriors, with their imbecilic lies and childish rhetoric.

    It amounts to the same....

    Amazing, you would ‘Think’ the ‘local Argy community’, would be far more concerned about the crushing terms the IMF are about to impose on them???

    But no, still fretting about incomes and expenditures in someone else’s territory, which, let’s face it, is no concern of theirs.

    The only benefit for them doing this, that I can see, is it may show them how it’s done properly, so government actually works and has money to spend in country, not just for stashing overseas or in holdalls in convents.

    And as for the ‘English Sleeve’.

    Well, the people who we call Germans, the Frogs and Spics call Allemands/Alemanes, the Eyties call Tedeschi, the Poles/Russians/other assorted Slavs call Niemcy (means ‘no speaks’), the inbred Scandinavian MF*ckers call Tyskar/e and where the Jerrys themselves, call themselves Deutsche.

    But hey, what in a name, it’s who controls it that counts.
