    I bet those Ilex squid are just sat in the river thinking 'This argentina place is a right sh!t hole, I'd rather be on someone's plate than here'.

    They must prefer to deal with the Falklands and feel safe and well treated than try and deal with an awkward ,corrupt Argentina !

    In the past, Mercopress tried to avoid being viewed as a British press agency. No, it is no longer the case. Comments speak from themselves.

    @ 5 Marcelo Kohen

    I saw a photograph of you the other day and you seem quite young. The question I have to ask is with a surname like yours what are you doing being an apologist for one of the most neo fascist regimes on the planet ?

    Peronism is a watered down version of Nazism as was admitted by Peron himself.

    Kohen, as one Islander called him, is a bit simple and just repeats the standard Argentine rhetoric. He does not generate independent thought and believes everything that was “taught” to him in school. He has been to the Islands and experienced how the islanders live and clearly knows their wishes. He has seen the people he wants his Government to colonise and he holds no compassion. The man's opinion is really not worth anything. The man's reaction over a drinks mug was laughable and overblown. He is also completely ignorant to why the Islanders would dislike Argentina so much because he believes that Argentina has done nothing wrong. I bet he is one of those Argentines who believes that the Falklands War wasnt Argentina's fault!
