These Argies need the crap kicked out of them again

The Telegraph

Thirty years and they seem to have forgotten the hiding they got. And that the British public will vote out any government that even gives a hint of going wobbly on holding the Falklands.

The government of Argentina aired an advert last night showing one of its country’s athletes training for the upcoming Olympic Games on “Argentine soil” in the Falkland Islands.

The advert, broadcast on various channels at 10pm, prime time in Argentina, shows Fernando Zylberberg, a member of the men’s Argentine hockey team, running through the streets of Stanley in preparation for July’s games in London.

After watching Zylberberg train outside the Globe Tavern, the Falklands’ most popular pub, and sprint past the Penguin News, the islands’ only newspaper – which recently published a picture of Cristina Kirchner, the Argentine president, on its website under the visible filename ‘b—-’ – viewers read the slogan: ‘To compete on English soil, we train on Argentine soil’.

The 90-second advert was broadcast on the 30th anniversary of the sinking of the General Belgrano warship, which killed 323 troops, nearly half of Argentina’s 649 losses during the Falklands War. It was dedicated to those who fought in the 74-day conflict, which also claimed 258 British lives.

Mrs Kirchner intensified Argentina’s sovereignty claim to the Malvinas, the name for the islands in Spanish, during the build-up to the 30th anniversary of the Argentine invasion of the archipelago on April 2

    If the Argie team unfolds banners or signs about the Falklands as they march into the arean in London they will be inundated by the boos etc and they will be person non grata in tghe UK.

    That woman is dangerous.  Her UK ambassador’s last posting was Venezuela and she is as strident as her boss.

    It’s all about the oil guys – nothing else. Geez why would England be interested in holding on to some little shit hole of an island in the South Atlantic otherwise…..

      Because the Falkland islanders asked them to!!! They want to be british, just like the Gibraltese. That is why they went there the first time, whennobody knew anything about the oil.

    Argentina has significant economic problems – they have significant inflation and thus are cooking the books to hide this.

    The economist magazine recently dumped their inflation figures. And Mc Donalds has been forced to sell the Big mac at a cheap price to keep their good rating in the big mac index.
