  • People are reading this the wrong way; it is not a boycott!

    It is exactly what the minister says: “seek alternative suppliers.” The Argentinians are cutting the ties that bind them to the UK, so they can move freely. Remember that Argentina suffered from an embargo during and after the war. The UK has used and still using boycott as a political weapon, but cry foul when others seek alternative suppliers.

  • Hi. Your comments are welcome – thank you. I have approved them but they don’t show up well on the software, so I’ve decided that for these and other comments, I’ll actually add them to the end of the main text so they’re more visible.

    Thank you for the blogroll link. The blog is an experiment – part of my university studies – so whilst I’m really enjoying writing it, I can’t promise to keep it going.
