The first day of the G20 summit is nearly over, and on Friday afternoon in Hamburg, British Prime Minister Theresa May canceled her solo meeting with Argentine President Mauricio Macri due to “scheduling problems.”

 According to Argentine sources they are trying to reschedule, but as the delegations of both parties must agree to the meeting, logistics are still uncertain.

Before the summit, May had extended the offer to meet privately with Macri at 10 am on Saturday, July 8 in the Hotel Meridien, where they are both staying for the summit. If they reschedule successfully, the meeting would move to breakfast at 8:30 am.

    Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggie' until you can find a rock.

    At least Macri won't be insisting that Argentina has less poverty than Germany, as would be the case with a certain perpetually mendacious former presidenta.

    Macri is guilty of being foolish only by following the obligatory position that Argentina is actively seeking “dialogue” with the UK, in order to please the masses.

    It's a hold over from Peron, and a holdover from the K regime's agenda to confront and badger the UK over the Falklands.

    It proved embarrassing for Malcorra - she realised how stupid and economically anti-productive it is.

    The reality is, Argentina doesn't expect or want “dialogue”.

    Hector Timmerman ran away in London when he was granted his request.

    Doesn't Argentistan realise that all this “che, we wanna meeting to monologue with xxx” is just another way of saying to the world, “see what a failure we are? ¿viste? ”

    It's 2017 and because of Argentina the Falklands are inalterably British.

    Wake up and smell the yerba.
