    Default North South Administration ...well goes as South as it possible can go.

    Apparently an administrative mix up in the Foreign office means that the power to regulate expeditions and environmental matters in Antarctica - now belongs to the Northern Irish Assembly and Scottish Parliament

    Well, well, well. Time to lobby for Alex Atwood for a cool research job.

    I propose not going back before legally renaming part of it Shackleton-Rowett land/ Tír Shackleton-Rowett land and whatever the Scots for it is.

    Awesome, can we do a person for penguin exchange... ship out all the ones in jail, involved it drugs, sectarianism etc and get cute penguins in exchange?

    After watching the BBC Documentary on Penguins, I now want one.

    Seems now it's now back in Ministry of Defence control, so much for not an inch.

    "The surrendering of the powers is needed to enable amendments to the Antarctic Act of 1994 to enhance marine protection in the area."

    Somehow I don't think inter species exchange is going to make any environmental improvement.

    I agree with the penguin exchange. Especially if they look like Happy Feet.
