Falklands

Oh How I laughed. It seems that Cruise Ship Companies are now swerving Argentina after Unions took over the ships whilst the local Plod stood around like Potted Palms. The Chileans are the main beneficiaries of the Argentine Stupidity.

They wanted the ships to change the route they take they have Glorious victory for argentina!

Oh wait :) bwhahahaahahhahaha.
We should open negociations just to watch argentina **** it up with no help from us.

Would appear they have got their way as regards changing their itineraries.........now bypassing Argentinian ports, leading to loss of revenue. Unions the world over I fear!
 
#5
Do the cruise lines lose anything from not going to Tierra del Fuego?

Do they gain anything from going to the Falklands?

Or is it just a case of not wishing to be pushed about?

If only the Argies had Harrier in service - then they'd show those evil cruise companies what for...

considering the way chile bent over backwards to help us in 82 I allways wondered why (besides the longer flight time) there wasn't a stronger link between them and the FI. south chile like argentina is full of UK descendants as well.

is there not a way the FI can sign a mutual treaty type of thing as its not worth being nice to Buenos aires with Nigella in power.

I pay a great deal of money to spend my leisure time in places cruise ships do not visit. It would appear I now have a couple of new options.

This is a good thing. All citizens will rejoice.

Is this because of the number of cruise ship have you down as a deserter? The books showing TID(R).

All those cruise ships stranded because they could not leave port without their dance instructor cum bingo caller. :geek:

Magellan statue, Punta Arenas (Seaweed wuz there):



They say that if you rub the foot of the figure with his leg dangling down you will surely return.

Absolutely ace crabs called centollas sold at the side of the road.

So the Argies are whining because they themselves are trying to ban ships from visiting land they view as Argentinian?

cnuts. Nuke 'em now.

so does this mean they wont accept any of our trident subs on a port call during a southern cruise then? that's a bit tight we were going to do fireworks and everything.

Classic , imbecilic and outstanding demonstration of ... the law of unintended cosequences .

Readily foreseeable and rather obvious consequence .. but nice to see the Args kick themselves like this. The total and utter collapse of the Arg economy will be richly satiusfying to watch.

I hope someone's keeping a close eye on who boards these cruises that dock at the Falklands. I'd hate to see an invasion by Argentina's 1st and 2nd Marine Infantry regiments from a cruise vessel cunningly disguised as a gay cruise.
