Looks like the Falklands are safe for a while

The Argies are pissed off with Madame President who has led them up the garden path by rejecting sensible things like the free market, honesty and low inflation. She has tried to take her peoples’ eye off the ball by rabbiting on about the Falklands.

Tens of thousands of Argentines rallied in the streets of the country’s biggest cities to protest President Cristina Fernandez’s policies, including a virtual ban on foreign currency purchases.

The rallies were organised on Thursday (local time), through social media and not by any one political party. Demonstrators’ mainly criticized the currency controls, crime rates and a potential bid by Fernandez to reform the constitution so she can run for a third term.

“There’s inflation, crime and an abuse of power. It’s time Cristina listened to us,” said Roberto Madrid, an office worker who joined the protests in Buenos Aires.

The average Argie is smart enough to realise that they will have the hell hammered out of them if they try anything dodgy in the Falklands, and are more interested in having a government that doesn’t lie and cheat.
