    Haha, Camoron is looking more desperate by the hour.
    First the scandal over the resignation of Defence Secretary Liam Fox, second “Horsegate” and now this new scandal. It's a sad day for Camoron when Rupert Murdoch is lecturing them on propriety in their behaviour.

    This is not meant as a joke on my part, just an honest obervation, but is it me or does it seems that the UK institutions have been in scandal after scandal of late? From the BBC bias, to the Iraq War and Tony Blair cover-ups, to News of the World, to the banks and rating agencies in the financial crisis (obviously not just a UK thing), to at least three or four government scandals under Brown and Cameron just in the last couple of years. What's going on? There's been no massive argie immigration to Britain so don't blame us! This corruption trend seems to cut across from government to media to business.

    Snout, as in a pig's nose.

    I am no fan of Cameron's but we are talking about three old friends having dinner with him in his private apartment. The three friends also donate to the party funds. Hardly a scandal. I wonder how many of CFKC's croney friends have donated to her party (leaving out Chavez) and now have key jobs in government? The list must be endless.

    As for 'scandal after scandal', um, I think it has more to do with a free press here than anything else. The role of the press is to investigate and report; especially the government. Some of it is good reporting and some just filling pages, but at least they report freely.

    the truth is more harder to exept is it not,
    the real reason their is publisised scandles in great britian,
    is called freedom of the press and honesty,

    the real difference is that in arghentina, your corrupt goverment hides it all.

    you laugh at us for uncovering the truth,
    just think of the world laughing at you , if the truth ever comes out.

    so be fair, we are 95% honest
    and argentina is 20% honest.
    be gratfull
