Read somewhere 70% or so of the massive increase in migrants trying to cross the US border by jumping the fence and risking the desert (will be a big issue next November in the US election) are Venezuelans, hardly any Mexicans cross this way these days; I think they’ve been able to enter visa free for a while now.

In the 1950s it was the 5th richest country in the world.

Maybe he and his party can be persuaded with the offer of a post brexit trade deal with Argentina that will add 0.0001% to UK GDP over 10 years.

Oh and at least 4 of the paragraphs at the start of report repeat the same thing. 'Non-negotiable' features 12 times by my count, and you can double that if you add in synonyms.

I suppose this is not known as globally but more locally the land disputes in South America

Well this has been a learning day for me
There's quite a few IIRC.
Chile grabbed a lump of desert in the north from Bolivia and Peru following the War of the Pacific in the 1880s which is still contested by Bolivia (they no longer have a land bridge to the Pacific).
There's a border dispute between Ecuador and Peru that flared up to a short-lived armed conflict in the 1990s.
Chile and Argentina have almost came to blows over where to draw the line in the deep south - Patagonia, during Pinochet's time (one of the reasons the Argies sent so many conscripts to the Falklands was because their best troops were guarding the borders with Chile).
There could be others but I'm not totally versed - eg I seem to remember something involving Paraguay that's still smoldering.

From the above article:

"He has also proposed cutting welfare payments and slashing bureaucracy by closing the ministries of culture, women, health and education, among others."

"Half of Argentines are poor and the other 10% are destitute."

We should say that anyone taking the Falklands also has to take Shapps; that should keep them at bay.
