    Well, may I send congratulations Ms Perez Colman on getting the post.

    You do however have that simpleton as an ambassador to the Court of St James. Is you strategy too have her removed or is it best to keep the fool institue where you can a least try and half control her impromptu and comical outbursts. A true dilemma.

    For my part please keep ambassador Castro where she is. She is such a plain source of hilarity and fun with a face to match a corgis bum.

    Hope she identifies that the British will talk with Argentina if there are islanders present.

    Such a simple measure-that's if Argentina can get over their intense fear of a Falkland Islander.

    The mere thought of facing up to an Islander ruined a pair of Gollum's shoes last year.

    I'll lend him a pair of wellies next time as long as he doesn't tuck his trousers inside them.
