  5. I am sure their fiscal problems would be solved overnight if we gave them the Malvinas back.

  7. "Currency controls aimed at reducing rampant tax evasion have fueled anxiety about the economy, accelerating capital flight and discouraging investment."

    So just like Greece then, entirely self-inflicted. Pay yer taxes yer fuckwits. It's how civilised countries work.

    On the plus side, they are so far away we won't get hordes of the fuckers looking for asylum. Hopefully.
