    First the Argentinian Navy adopts a self-sinking plan, then Chavez snuffs it, and now this. Ah well, Kirchner will just have to stick to ruining the economy.

  4. I don't reckon they were handing out campaign leaflets before the vote but you never know
  5. I'd hate to be the lacky that takes Frau Kirchner her morning cuppa.

  8. Retained Argie Servicemen, or people who've decided they'd really rather their politicians in the "crazed, self-important, deluded maniac" model, and lets face it, CMD just doesn't square up!
  9. The 3 against were the three islanders that can't read, they actually put an "x" in the box next to Argentina and really thought the x meant "Go **** yourselves you Argie Bastards, you bombed my sheep pen, and Diego Imagonna is still a **** too"

  10. only 3 !?!?! I thought there would have been more drunken facetious smartarsers voting than that.
  11. The 3 have been named and shamed...........

    A Senor Leopoldi Bob Galterie who left the polling booth thinking the Argies won in '82 anyway

    A General Franco De mayo Belgrano who runs a failed Sailing School on the Western Island,

    and a Senor Diego Imagonna who said the hand of god made him do it.

    The three have already admitted guilt and have been sentenced to a further 30 years of living on the Island.

  13. Low turnout though. Only 90%. Apathy has set in.
  14. Must have been a spoiled ballot paper as well. Do we take that as a protest at the political process or just too pissed to write properly?
