Did you contribute the other peso Ricky?

The whole country would be up in arms, believe me. I am not sure there are any skinheads in the UK anymore. They were around in the sixties and are all collecting their pensions now (no true skinheads, you are right, well partly balding). I think the veterans believed they were all fighting for democracy. Bet you wouldn't call any of them to their face that they are fascist irregardless of how old they now are.

You are somewhat confused again Ricky. It is all academic though, don't you think?

LMAO The intellectual juggernaut keeps on Rolling!

If you visit some war zones, areas of civil war or national disaster you will find most of the people working for the NGO's (Non Govenment Organisation) such as the Red Cross etc are from the top section of countries on that list. Docters, Nurses, Engineers etc. Many countries give much more than just money!

So MALVINAS ARGENTINAS show us some more of your ignorance of the world.

The point you were making was that the UK was skint was it not?

Your ramblings about currency shows what a tiny little pea sized brain you possess.

Probably the highest, per capita, in the world.

Silly little refugee.
