    Exactly as I predicted, I said it here yesterday, this was not the time or forum to discuss the Falklands.

    Well played Timmerman. Almost “British” in its calculation.

    Argentine PM bottles it, Timerman tries to recover, but fumbles badly.

    I found it amusing to note the Argentine PMs response was called “rambling”, she clearly hadnt got a clue how to act or what to say.

    Clearly the Argentine letter was prepared in advance with the aim of embarrassing the British. However the British PM Cameron got wind of this and turned the tables and it became the Argentine delegation and President that was left with egg on its face.

    Argentine hypocrisy seems to know no bounds.

    Where to begin?

    1) Timerman insists that the G20 summit is an inappropriate place to discuss the Falklands, despite the fact that Kirchner had that nice little folder of non-binding UN resolutions. Given that He had that nice little photo op where he explained how Cameron refused to accept it, if Cameron had accepted it, Argentina would have trumpeted it as a major success.
    2) Timerman highlights how wonderful it was that Kirchner attended a ceremony designed to be attended by lower level diplomats, whilst criticising Cameron for having better things to do, such as celebrating Liberation day and the end of hostilities in 1982 (Unlike Argentina who celebrated the COMMENCEMENT of hostilities).
    3) The letter itself. It is inappropriate that Britain refuses to accept a pointless list reminding them of the non-binding UN resolutions, but perfectly appropriate to refuse to accept the Falkland Islanders letter.
    4) Timerman criticises Cameron for bringing up the Falklands Islands 'off the agenda', despite the fact that Argentina was clearly prepared to do so, and probably hoping to beat Britain to it. And while the 'ideal' place to discuss the Falklands may have been at the C24;
    a] The Argentine delegation snubbed the Falkland Island representatives, refusing to accept their letter, and probably not even paying the attention and respect the Island representatives deserved.
    b] Argentina bangs on about their claim everywhere they go, and to whoever they think is listening. It's perfectly fine for them to bring it up wherever and whenever they please, but unacceptable for Britain to do the same.

    I will admit to not knowing much about the Chagos Islands, so I won't make comment on that issue.
    Having said that, it's in the past. How about we bring up other issues, like Australian Aborigines, Native American Indians, the genocide of the native populations of South America to name a few.
    History mate is filled with 'dick' moves made for one reason or another. The one thing they all have in common is that they are in the past. Nothing can be done about them, no matter how regrettable they are.
    What can be done is to safeguard the future of the Falkland Islanders in the face of an aggressive 'would like to be colonialist' Argentina, in the here and now.

    It wasn't done by Argentines; just as no Argentines were responsible for invading the Falklands in 82... in any case, history stars in 1833 as you should well know, thus there was no genocide of indigenous south american peoples by antecedents of Argentine citizens. it was those pesky Europeans, to whom they have no genetic relationship whatsoever.

    Argentines are a mixture of Italians, Spaniards and Indigenous Argentinians. How can they be guilty of a genocide againt natives? Have they genocided themselves? This is like saying African-Americans are guilty of raping African slaves, since many of them also descend from white slave-owners.

    Argentine hypocrisy seems to know no bounds.

    1-It expelled the native indians in Argentina from their ancestral lands using mass genocide, implanting a foreign Spanish population in the Argentine. It then calls the population of the Falkland Islands implanted when it knows that the said population was not made up entirely of British people and in fact the majority of the civilian population on the Falklands allowed to stay after January 1833 (accepting British authority) was not of British origin, it was multi-national, (ie 2 British settlers out of 20, =10%).
    2- I think the above is pretty damning by itself.

    There are genetic studies detailing the impact of Indigenous admixture on the Argentine genome. Argentines are about 20% native, which shows that they didn't eliminate all natives living in what would become Argentina, like the racial-purity obessed Brits who settled in the US, Australia and Canada. Instead, Indigenous peoples assimilated and were absorbed into the European settler communities, like elsewhere in Latin America. Argentines can't be blamed for what happened to the natives in the past just like African-Americans aren't guilty of the fact that their white ancestors raped Black slaves. Britain, on the other hand, can very well be held accountable for what happened to the Chagossians, the Iraqis, the Kenyans, the Malaysians, the Irish, etc.

    “The Ulster population was an implanted people who established in the area by expelling Irish Catholics. Violence, in this context, isn't unprovoked, thus it can't be considered lunatic or unreasonable.”

    The modern day Ulster population represents a admixture of ethnic Irish and medieval English immigrants (incidentally, those English immigrants arrived long before you nation was a even a faint dream). Whilst the original intentions (demographic shifts, control of Ireland, etc...) of these English immigrants were colonialist for sure, it is pure falacy to proclaim all protestant Irish (in Ulster or Eire) an implanted population. They are undoubtably the decendents of both ethnic Irish and medieval English immigrants (and other groups no doubt) who have thouroughly assymilated to form a protestant Irish culture. For someone who above proclaimed that Argentines ARE the decentents of the aboriginal patagonian natives, your attempts to portray the Irish protestants as tea sipping English interloapers is a little hypocritical, no?

    Also, I'd like to see your evidence that medieval English colonialism in Ireland entailed 'turfing out' the indigenous population. As far as I'm aware, the whole point of said colonialism was to assert control of the land AND the population. I confess, I am not intimately aquainted with the subject of late medieval Anglo-Irish relations (yet), but given your attrocious attitude and utter hypocrisy, I'm willing to take a punt and say that you're spouting nought but hyperbole.

    Anyone who equates a healthy disdain for those wishing terror onto innocent civilians, with 'bleeding heart grannies' ought to think long and hard about whether or not they should get out of bed in the morning (hint: you probably shouldn't have).

    “...people the world over know you all too well.”

    Interesting that you should say that. As much as Britain's colonial PAST has created bad blood, Britain does have relatively good relations with the vast majority of her former colonial possessions. Ever heard of the Commonwealth of Nations? It's members (54 nation states last time I counted) exchange high commissioners (rather than ambassadors) because commonwealth nations, in a gesture of friendship, do not regard one another as foreign (which is also why the full title of the UK foreign office is the foreign and commonwealth office).

    I doubt very much that Argentina has such good relations with so many nations.

    ”Colonist populations, whether they're an armed population or not, they partake in national aggression. They're fair game. :)”

    If the term 'colonist population' applies to the protestants of Ulster, then by definition it also applies to the catholics of Argentina. Remember Forgetit87, the plantations began before large scale Spanish colonisation of South America. I suppose then you'll gleefully accept a campaign of terror aimed at forcing all you evil, colonial Europeans from Argentine soil.

    Geesh, you do have a blind spot for your own hypocrisy don't you. I suppose you'll be back with a not so witty retort, declaring that Argentines are a special case. That unique in all the world, the Irish protestant population can never be absolved of the crimes (immigration?

    My god theres two of you? the world is doomed I don't have any sympathy for Iraq's after all the were “fair game.” Thats what I could have said but I along with the majority of my fellow Brits were against the war right from the start, however we did at least get rid of Saddam which wasn't all bad. Anyway when Argentine was slapped with a binding resolution to leave the Falklands they refused and a 74 day war ensued that took a thousand lives for no real reason.

    Oh and 'forget' what do you mean “colonialist populations”? The whole world is colonised we all came from Africa originally and we expanded out. “national aggression”? Prots and Caths have been squabbling with each other all around the world for centuries so 50 years of Northern Irish troubles and any one living here is an armed aggressor?

Uk requires to other countries, the compliance with UN resolutions, however it is the first country which invent false arguments and lies to avoid complying these resolutions. The pirate behavior of the United Kingdom is known throughout the world community. As a consequence of that, It is impossible for UK to fool anyone with its lies.

    Uk is an old imperialist country which is loosing power and credibility very fast because all the world know that is country only wants to impose its interests to continue managing these stolen territories and resources obtained from this colonies. The self determination is a huge lie. Everybody knows that it doesn´t apply in this case beacuse the population of the Islands was implanted by the same country which stole them before. In addition, UK apply a very restrictive inmigration policy to mantain the few people implanted there (around three thousands). Uk only pays attention to the opinion of these few people, because they help to this country to continue stealing these territories and their resources. If these Islanders had defended the Argentinian position, Uk wouldn´t have tried to apply this false argument of “self determination” because in this case it would be against the interest of this country.

And as your country is the very product of colonialism and your european ancestors who you are directly descended from did all these ‘evil’ things to the natives you are in no position to complain. Im not saying that I support colonialism as comparison to rape, because you cant compare the two, rape will go on for eternity but colonialism/imperialism has pretty much died out, and no I don’t want a lecture on Iraq thank you!!!!

We do not intend to become Argentine citizens, or to change the mate tea, nor its original by the Spanish league, etc.. Because that would be a colonial attitude!

    Ah Marcos, nice copy and paste being passed off as your own work and it would be interesting if it were true but as ever from our Argentine posters its a massive distortion of the truth.

    Anyway anyone noticed when things don't go to plan for the Argentinians they immediately veer off course with some crude insults?

    You know Britain has clearly won once they resort to the same old worn out nonsense about something in the UK's past, its all rather pathetic. Argentina has committed some of the most barbaric crimes against its OWN population both indigenous and implanted so is hardly in a place to lecture others on human rights. Not to mention it continually tries to deny the people of the Falkland's their human rights.

    Anyway back to the subject in hand.

    This is quite clearly a diplomatic victory (for the millionth time) for the UK and people of the Falkland's islands. PM Cameron is a world class politician and CFK has proven many times over the past few years to not be and has yet again been embarrassed on the world stage. Tinman is also a terrible politician and diplomat, anyone remember that cringeworthy and comical speech at the UN where he blatantly lied to the point everyone was mocking him?

    My favourite parts where the top secret radar which actually was a weather radar that collects data and is used by several universities around the world for that purpose.

    And the excellent Argentine intelligence and picture of a nuclear weapon armed submarine off the Falkland Islands which actually was a picture from a British newspaper of a submarine that is a different class off the coast of Scotland that isn't even capable of carry nuclear weapons.....

    And from all of this you can see why the Argentine government are one of the joke countries of international politics and diplomacy.

    It's quite funny reading all the RG trolls desperately try to divert attention from the fact that your President can't handle even the most benign confrontation.

    That's the problem with populist politicians. They have to be surrounded by a crowd of loyal, simpering sicophants (like the C24 when she had 95 of them with her), and reading from a pre-prepared speech, or they end up making a fool of themselves.

    At the G20, poor CFK didn't have her adoring sicophants with her, and had no pre-prepared speech, she had to act and think immediately. Pity, because she has no ability to do that.

    British politicians have a huge wealth of experience of having to think on their feet. Every Wednesday is Prime Ministers question time where the Prime Minister gets questions flung at him, not only by the opposition, but by his own party too.

    And British politicians are always being grilled by the press, too.

    A pity Argentina's press don't feel they have the freedom to do this, especially with the President, who I understand refuses to answer questions from them, and will only read out pre-prepared statements.

    She's a pretty poor excuse for a politician isn't she?

    Dear Forgetit87, like your fellow Malvinistas,

    You are a fool, and a dishonest one at that. The Argentinians have prided themselves as being the Europeans of South America and have historically looked down upon their native or mixed raced neighbours.

    Yes, mixed-race or mestizos do exist in Argentina, many of them migrants or persons living in the far north or north west of the Argentina, but they are largely treated as second class citizens by the general Argentine populace.

    Ask any Chilean or many other South Americans how they find the Argentinians, and the word arrogant is soon mentioned. For example, despite Argentina's second or third rate economy, its people find it too hard to accept that those damn Chileans mestizos are outshining them economically. It really hurts their inflated ego!!!

    On another issue, its been mentioned that some Argentinians fought in World War I....yes, the Anglo-Argentinians, who helped your nation progress during the 19th and early 20th centuries. But, unfortunately, thanks to Juan Peron and his other dictatorial sidekicks, many British-Argentinians were forced to leave their former homeland in the 1930's and 1940's by the rising fascistas of that nation. It's a pity.....although some remain, obviously not nearly enough to counterbalance the mafiosa types that now run Argentina.

    I'm convinced that Hector Timmerman is actually a British security services operative. Every time the man opens his mouth he embarrasses himself, Kirchner and the entire Argentine nation. Either that or it’s ‘bring your moron to work day’. I suppose it stops him from sitting around all day eating crayons and drooling.

    Well done Mr C. Those 40 UN non-binding resolutions do not mean 'you must talk with argentina', they mean 'talk with argentina if you want to'. CKF has received a dose of her own medicine and Timerman is Mr Contradictory. Any country respecting self determination will respect the results of the referendum and Argentina must do the same if it is to gain respect in the world beyond the tinpot heads in of the C24.

    I'm not expecting an answer. But if I do get one, what I'll suggest is that, curiously enough, it's only Argentines I have ever heard espousing this notion of the unique wickedness of Brits. Everybody else seems to have cottoned on to the fact that the age of imperialism was a particular stage of economic development, everybody who was anybody was at it at the time, and that it all ended about 60-70 years ago. I suspect an indoctrination process at work.

    What's more, while the Brits were certainly far from angels, it is interesting to compare the current situation of former British colonies, with the current status of former Spanish ones, particularly as regards the status and numbers of the original indigenous population.

    This tends to show quite clearly just who was running a genocidal operation controlled by a plundering oligarchy, and doesn't seem to have learned anything much since.

    Anyway, that's what I'd suggest if I didn't want to get BritishLion all worked up in a lather.

    No need for that, CaMoron has the ability to embarrass himself with any help.

    Forgetting his daughter in a pub is not enough embarrassment?

    Just wonder embarrass comes from Argie’s word Embarras?

    I Embarro
    You Embarras
    He/she Embarra

    We Embarramos

    I just “Embarre” all like a Gil when I forgot my daughter at the pub.

    More “Embarrado” I feel now when Cristina appeared with that big envelope that I didn’t expect at all.

    Poor deluded Dany. Your president is making your country the laughing stock of the world.

    Lets see in the past few months:

    1. Stole er Nationalised YPF against Argentine law, then in a show of complete contempt for the Argentine constitution, changes it to suit her whim.
    2. Swore that China was going to they didn't.
    3. Went to Angola hoping to exchange food for she can't as your farmers are on strike and barely producing enough food to feed Argentina, let alone anyone else.
    4. Swore she'd get a unanimous statement from the OAS summit regarding the Falklands, but was basically told to feck off.
    5. Attended an impotent and powerless committee at the UN which no decent Head Of State would be caught dead doing, and even then she was shown up for the inept politician that she is. One minute asking for talks, then the next refusing an invitation from the Falkland Islands Government to do just that.
    6. Got caught out at the G20 by an experienced politician who basically told her to feck off and stop bullying the Falkland Islanders.
    7. Was seen begging the Russians to invest in YPF at the G20.

    You see, Dany, a decent Head of State or politician wouldn't do these things. In the meantime, your beloved CFK is stuffing her pockets as much as she can before the inevitable crash of the Argentine economy, at which point she'll blame the evil Brit Pirates and skedaddle overseas with all of YOUR money.

    Haven't read the comments - which I enjoy doing by the way - so maybe someone has already mentioned this. But....

    ”The one that came forward trying to talk about an issue that wasn't on the agenda was Prime Minister David Cameron,“ he said.
    Timerman said “Cameron refused to accept an envelope from Cristina Fernandez with the 40 UN resolutions calling for a resumption of sovereignty discussions on the Malvinas issue”.

    Typical psycho-lying Argies. The Tin Man says Cameron approached Critstina.
    He's implying that Cameron went over there to pick a fight that had nothing to do with why they were there.

    Then in the same breath he mentions that she had an envelope at the ready to give to Cameron, the contents of which also had nothing to do with why they were there.

    Good morning to all my supporter's in the UK and in the Falkland islands. May I take this opportunity to say to all of you that in the last few months I have been following with interest the many comments from all party's British, the Falkland islanders and the many Argentine Nationals living in Argentina and the rest of the World.

    As you are all now aware myself and the Argentine President Cristina Fernandez met where we had a short but frank encounter, in the process of this encounter President Cristina Fernandez tried but failed to hand me an envelope.

    I have to say that I am disappointed in the action of the Argentine President, to try to hand an envelope pertaining to the Falkland Islands to her Majesty's Prime Minister is both un diplomatic and fully the wrong way to go about world affairs.

    May I take this opportunity through MercoPress to say to her that there is nothing to discuss until the people that live on the Falkland's decide that they no longer want to remain British. May I also remind her that next year the people on those islands are holding a referendum on just this same subject, I tried to say to her last night that they were going to do this but I do not think she fully grasped that it is only the people who live on those islands who can decide their own fate.

    I say this to all the people that live on the Falkland islands, you can rest assured that we British will never let the Argentines take over and ruin your much respected economy like they have done in their own country you are much valued and respected.

    Finally, I would like to quote something that a great man once said a hero to many a British person including myself.
    If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.

    Seriously though, Argentina wanted a chat even about non sovereignty issues as she boldly stated at the UN C24 and the hypocrite fluffed the opportunity to talk on mutually beneficial matters with the islanders who gave her every opportunity, Tamborineman doing the same. They snubbed the offer whilst rolling around congratulating each other with their 90 devout followers. Now DC told her exactly the situation and she seeks to pass him a job lot on NON-BINDING resolutions whilst simultaneousily castigating the islanders and Britain for being thoroughly British, and threatening island economies and business partners and continually slandering us.
    Britain will always play the game by the book. Argentina is still learning to read from a book with heavy lead content ink.

    Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner attempted to hand Mr. Cameron a package marked ‘UN – Malvinas’ but the Prime Minister refused to accept it

    The “Close encounter of a second kind” was extraordinary to say the least when the British media said it took place in a corridor which clearly is not what the photograph portrays………I found this comment sums up their brief exchange:

    At the G20 in sunny Mexico the Argentinean President approached Cameron to attempt a dialogue with him about the answer to the Falklands issue, and in a glowing demonstration of leadership statesmanship and negotiation, what does he do? – A Runner

    One can clearly see the distortion of facts when it comes to which newspaper you read. The Zionist controlled UK media clearly state that it was Cameron who approached the Argentinean President but I can assure you it was the other way round.

    In the above photograph one can see President Cristina Fernandez intentionally intercepted the British Prime Minister who was caught totally off guard as you can see in Cameron´s blushing facial expression. Christina was fully armed with a standard A4 sized envelope ready to hand it over to the PM but he not only became rather flustered but also refused to accept the envelope that was handed to him.

    I find it rather absurd that political leaders never appear to be able to accept an unprepared interview which often takes away their ability to deal with live unknown questions and you can clearly see the two faces, one showing determination and the other in full retreat and totally flustered.

    After this initial clash David Cameron again regained his lost composure and put on his usual spin of “Bravado” ( in true Churchill style) before the media in order to show his leadership qualities when he stated:

I am the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom for God’s sake one does not accept any old envelope from any old person you know one has to carful in this day and age. And as I pointed out to her walking up to the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and trying to shove something in his hand is not the right way to go about things, there are ways of doing things in the civilised world that we live in that's why we have diplomats.

    If a British foreign secretary acted like Timmerman, he would'nt last very long.

    Reading through this thread - I have to say that the Argentinian bloggers still really can't say anything other than “you stole the isalnds from us” which is an outright lie, or “Britain has always been evil so must be punished” which is actually a non-argument in their favour as it does'nt advance their cause (I won't even bother going into Argentinas own blood stained past- we've done that to death).

    Nothing any Argentine blogger has said here has really addressed the poor performance by CFK and co in regards to this dispute.

    If thats the best you lot can do, you've lost.

    I would also say you are correct in your assumption of your President coming up to me, however the reason for me doing a runner as you eloquently put it was because she made me late for a very important meeting a meeting a meeting far more important than having some sort of dialogue over an issue that is already done and dusted and has been for many a long year.

    I find it rather strange that you seem to think that it was I that was flustered, I can state quite categorically that it was your President that was a little bit flustered, I commented on it to Susan one of my assistants, you can just make her out in the photograph if you look closely as I walked away that she seemed to be a little bit flustered and hot. And Susan whispered to me that I should not be too worried about it but it might be that the President is going through what all women go through at that time in their lives, the menopause. I must say that when Susan told me that I breathed a sigh of relief I had thought up to that point that it was I walking off in such a way that caused her to be a little flustered I have that affect on the lady's , Hoever I can assure everyone that I was late for that meeting.

    Always your servant David

    You still haven't answered my question Mr Cameron. Why won't you give this country that has been in existence for over 300 years with its internal entities going back over 1500 years and even further. This country is old and your subsuming it into an EU state. Why can't we, its people decide our fate?

    Argentine President is scum. How many times do we have to say, we won't give back the islands under any circumstances. We write the resolutions, not Argentina. We make the decisions, not Argentina. Argentina are useless at politics and the el politicos are scum.

    Still nothing of substance to say then?

    How long before you start going on about how we should'nt have bombed the peace loving germans in ww2? Or mention Chagos?

    I did'nt even bother with the links.

    You basically have nothing constructive to say. You certainly can't elucidate a valid reason why your country should be allowed to uproot or dominate a peaceful community that has existed for over 180 years.

    Going on about real or imagined injustices done to other people does'nt wash.

    what a shame you are blinkered and brainwashed. Is Argentina a democracy?
    why do you feel the way that you do. You have no real evidence of your comments regarding Mr Cameron and the Falklands. It appears that all you want to do is be abusive and not put reasonably logical arguments forward. No doubt you will be rude about this!

    If cameron wanted to deffend the referendum and the right to self determination for the islanders, why didn't he go to the decolonization committee last june 14th?, that was the right place to debate about those issues, what he did at the g. 20 meeting, was just a rediculous mediatic circus, which helps him, in order to be on the cover of the mediatic agenda of some countries. On the other hand, i will always say that our government must dialogue with the governmemt from the islands, if we have a claim for the malvinas-falklands, it means that the islanders are our compatriots too, and if they are our compatriots, they MUST join the negotiations. I deffend some of the decisions that c. f. k took regarding this dispute, but she commits a big mistake when she rejects to talk to the government from the islands about the sovereignty. I hope that the islanders send their letter to our embassy, but c. f. k should have received it. Unless timerman offered that posibility, but cameron didn't even accepted to receive c. f. k's envelope with all the resolutions that call the two nations to resume the negotiations. However he will continue accusing argentina of colonialism, and surelly planty of people around the world will continue laughing with his rediculous assertions.

    @181 - axel arg

    The decolonisation committee is a non-entity corrupt committee with no power that no self-respecting leader or even senior government official would attend, hence why your leader went - no self-respect.

    There are only 2 parties involved in the sovereignty dispute, Argentina and the Falkland Islanders. The British are only involved to ensure fair play.

    So if Argentina truly wants movement on the Falklands issue it will have to grow up and speak to the people who matter most in all of this, the Falkland Islanders.

    The Falkland Islanders will hold a referendum next year, under international supervision. Once this is done, Argentina should accept that the people of the Falklands have spoken, whatever the outcome. That's what grown up, progressive countries do.

    If your government refuses to accept the result, then you will truly lose what little respect you still have in the world.

    By the way, axel arg. Argentinians are colonials. You are the product of Spains colonial ambitions, but even after independence from Spain, you continued to colonise the surrounding areas, by committing acts of genocide and ethnic cleansing against the native population and stealing their lands.

    Your entire culture is based on Europe, your buildings, your military's dress uniforms, and your language. Where are the native, axel? Less than 2% of the whole Argentine population.

    In the 19c, the United Provinces also did land grabs from their neighbours, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay and Brazil. You even tried to grab land from the British, until we turned up and turfed your military off our territory.

    In 1850 Argentina signed a treaty and maps produced by Argentina after this date shows that they didn't consider the Falklands Argentinian territory.

    Face it, you were created by colonialism, you expanded your territory by colonialism, and you still try to increase your territory by colonialism, and in 1982 the British had to slap you back down from your colonialism.

    175 Furry-Fat-Feck ===== How dare you, you Furry-fatFeck how dare you say I am not the real David Cameron. Am I not allowed to have a little fun in my spare time? God knows I don't get very much spare time in my life, its a hard job I tell you trying to run a country like the United Kingdom and it does not help when people like that woman stirs up trouble and I am not talking about Mrs Thatcher bless her soul.

    Now Mr Conor, to answer your question about we British holding a referendum. I have in the last few days been talking to my Cabinet about this very same subject and I can inform you that it has had a reasonable response from my Cabinet, I have to say though that while I will try to get it passed into our law in the next year those dastardly socialists will try to scupper those plans by getting elected and throwing me out in the street.

    Now to you Mr Berger, I still see you have not changed you name yet. How you can go around with a name like that really astounds me, and I can tell you it takes some doing for me to be astounded.

    I guess you get astonished quiet easy mate.

    Cameron = Crooked (dishonest, twisted, etc) Scot meaning.

    So much better “Berger” than a “Crooked” and you want to make fun from my surname mate?

    Are you joking?
    Or you just started to get high like in the past?

    Mr Berger, I seem to have hit a nerve with your name. However just like your countrymen and women who have a penchant at distorting known facts you have once more distorted the the meaning of Cameron. The word Cameron like you very well know actually means crooked nose.

    Now getting back to your name Mr Berger, Berger is actually spelled Burger as in a McDonald's Burger, not only did your parents name you after a minced piece of flat meat but they actually spelled the name wrong.

    I would seriously try to get that name changed who wants to be known as a piece of flat minced meat, its quite easy to get it changed, well it is in my country anyway you just change it by deed poll.

    If your going to call yourself after a piece of meat why not have the name Rump, or Brisket far better names than Berger dont you think?

    My Sname ok mate.

    Berger comes from Berg “Der Berg” like in Dutch “Van Der Berg”.

    You are making the typical English speaker mistake. Nothing to do with Burger.

    And for your record Burger in American English slang means “cool” & “awesome” ask YankeeBoy.

    So I’m not tasty lookin' burger?

    And this is for you “Yo got that burger?” Ha ha

    I guess you have got a lot of bad burger and for that reason you make us laugh every time you post.

    So don’t be greed and change you supplier of your cheap burger.
    Is not doing any good on you.
    Trust me
