Ironically, today is the aniversery of the Argentine surrender in 1982.

649 Argentian dead. 245 British dead. 3 Falkland Islanders Dead.

And still the Queen of Botox can't get it through her skull.

I've always liked the similar phrase "Suck it up, spongeface" ...It doesn't rhyme but what the heck...

It must also be pointed out that there are large areas of the UK where to stick a bust up of 'St.Margaret of Grantham' would also be deemed 'provocative' - she was to say the least a bit controversial.

I personally find her to have been a bit like the 'Curate's Egg' - good in parts.

ps. I drove past the site of Orgreave colliery on Monday, now festooned with new houses, and was reminded of her tussle with Arthur Scargill and the National Union of Miners.

I think my next trip may be to England hit up some pubs and listen to thier veiws.

Happy New Year to all ranks of the ACG community.
Back in the eighties they had a kids tv show in which each episode ended with the teacher showing a map and telling her class something along:

"And remember kids, the Malvinas are Argentine."

It was subject of mockery on the other southamerican countries.

Argentina became a populist country since the early 20th century, so a cause to focus popular attention is a good thing to have when you have an unstable and excitable population.

And remember, these were the times of a crazy military dictatorship that killed 30.000 people and resorted to foreign wars to distract the rest, so the Falklands War was a very mild and fortunate end for what it could have been.

Nevermind the screams, Argentina has more urgent issues to deal with... so expect a lot more of these complains from Argentina!

Ob, btw, couple weeks ago the Argentinian minister of economy declared that Germany and Denmark had more poor people than Argentina, it would be nice to compare numbers but Argentina ceased to publish data on the economy...
