A group of British and American banks have been threatened with legal action by the Argentine government for advising and writing research reports about companies involved in the Falkland Islands’ £1.6bn oil industry.
The essence of their claim is that a company which writes a research note on a company exploring for oil in the disputed territories could be subject to penalties under Argentine law.
That is, free speech in London, it is claimed, is ruled by the opinions of the Buenos Aires courts.
The correct answer to this is of course: \”Fuck off matey\”.
Then again, Argentina is the country where they prosecute economists for independently calculating the inflation rate. So we probably shouldn\’t expect any better from them the ignorant Fascist Dagoes.
