    'Requesting' that the unions support the government,
    with the implied threat that if they don't, the weight of the state will be applied
    - probably by 'divide and rule'/denouncing/etc,
    but not rejecting military options.

    It may be the start of the rot for CFK's 'models'.

    The govt cannot expect the workers to stand by whilst the inflation rate is as it is, even though the govt says fantastical things in denial.

    It seems the 'Ides of March' might lead to a bit of back-stabbing in Argentina. Just lets' hope it is the govt that get stabbed, not the workers.

    As I said a few months ago, the only place left with any $ are the union dues CFK needs them to make it through next year.

    The pact was, I give you $ you keep me in power, now there is no $ to give the pact is broken.

    When you rule with the power of the mob you have to be very careful it doesn't turn on you. CFK needs to keep the helicopter ready. After she resigns I wonder how many Presidents they will have within the next week? The last time this happened was 5 ( I think) I wonder if they can match it?

    This should be really fun to watch!

    “best way to defend workers is to look after government”
    Give them all your money and your possessions,
    So these poor greedy bastards can go live it up in paradise,
    While the poor bloody workers work to death,
    Look after your government
    As you government
    Wont look after you .

    How pathetic“Not ruling out military means ”
    It may be the start of the rot says Christy for the fiftieth time
    Yankee says Cristina needs the helicopter
    When the poor workers work to death says the nutjob

    all while Argentina grows at 9,3% and the DUK hits another recession is isolated from its own continent, riven by riots,and parts of the so called kingdom trying everything to escape
    The desperation smells worse from these bitter little men every day

    “Not ruling out military means ”
    *It's a warning* of the way things go when street protests at government actions/inactions get 'out of hand'.
    We see it on the TV daily in Egypt and Syria; it would be better were it not to happen in B.A.,
    and thinking Argentinians - perhaps like you - would be best advised to counsel sticking to 'jaw, jaw, rather than war, war' (Churchill, 1954, White House)

    When the poor workers work to death says the nutjob
    when again he who supports the rich over the poor, ends up in the same gutter, he has no complaint then, does he,
    another great job by the N.U.T.
