    Dilma Rousseff
    Yes she may well make history,
    But she will not mention the Falklands, because this is a childish sideshow,
    And this time she will have more important things to talk about,
    The Arab spring, and the Palestinian item,
    Her meeting with the French, is expected to be casual, but her meeting with David Cameron will be of interest, [private] at the very least,
    And a message to take back to her bests friend, not very good news
    [just my thoughts ]

    She will talk to the UN about South-South perspectives.

    Sensibly, she should remind the UN that China is not part of South, or South;
    China is very definitely - North.

    She can tell the UN about the reconstruction and protection of Haiti, and why the UN (South American Division) feels that its a case of 'Job done; going home'.
