    I've just dropped BA a line to point out that Argentines hate the British and want to steal British territory.

    Naturally, I will do the same in any newspaper in which I comment.

    BA will bring people to a new Southamerican country, not to a funny wannabe project of a country in tha South Atlantic. :-)

    Aside from cheap leather goods, there is little of interest in this city as it is an impoverished graffiti filled shabby imitation of a European city. If Buenos Aires were a woman then she would be one of those typical middle aged Argentines with the cheap peroxide blonde hair, she is desperately trying to look young and European while fooling no one. Buenos Aires offers nothing you can’t find elsewhere. If observing and studying street crime is your hobby then is is a great destination.

    Buenos Aires has around 100,000 people picking through garbage to survive everyday, it makes your vacation so special...

    Mr#9, After reading this article and visited your city in the past I see why they like to visit Buenos Aires and Argentina.

    ”In an interview with a German magazine this week, the cardinal said that “When you arrive at Heathrow you think at times that you’ve landed in a Third World country.”

    I agree about Heathrow, can't stand the place! I much prefer flying with Emirates or Qatar (as will be doing in 4 weeks) from Manchester. But a Club World seat to BA on BA would tempt me. I can see the sights before taking a trip to the FI to shake the oiled hands of the OG crew.

    Tempting?

    “Pope Benedict XVI has praised the UK as a ”force for good“ as thousands of people turned out to greet him on the first day of his historic visit.”

    “After he was officially welcomed by the Queen at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, the Pope spoke of the UK's important place in history, saying: ”Your forefathers' respect for truth and justice, for mercy and charity, come to you from a faith that remains a mighty force for good in your kingdom, to the great benefit of Christians and non-Christians alike.”

    11 Ale. He said that because heathrow has such a mix of different people from all over the world, it's the busiest airport in the world.

    It would do well to note that Argentina is a third world country.

    What aload of hate filled anti Argentine Rubbish is written above.
    I am from the uk and have lived in Buenos Aires for the last seven years and love it to bits. Everyone i know that comes here loves it. But if you are a bigot before you travel you will probably still be one upon your return.
