  2. So they're skint andd are turning away tourist Money? Idiots.
  3. It`s called " cutting your nose off to spite your face" in the UK. In Argentina I suspect it`s called taking the moral high ground by refusing to bow down to the imperialist oppressor. We buy quite a lot of tea from the Argentine, not many people know that.

  4. Christina Kirchner is, I'm guessing, an emotional nightmare - Christ, a menopausal, Hispanic Doris - what a combination. She couldn't make a rational decison if she tried ;-)

  5. Chilean shopkeepers will be well chuffed.
  6. It's also interesting that the Argies are prepared to turn away American owned ships (I know that they are Bahamian flagged and that Carnival is a US and British company), but it could naff off the Americans so that they try to wade into the game. Make no mistake, the US is watching and they aren't necessarily on our side, as witnessed by the US government continually calling them the Malvinas. Hit the Yank in the pocket, it's the only language they understand.
