    3 Self Determination

    Why would anyone in their right mind want to talk to an Argentine government, current or future? It is not like they can be trusted and they habitually renege on every treaty and international agreement they ever sign.

    It would take stupidity on a monumental scale to trust that any Argentinian government could change what is a national attribute that is set in stone.

    They had a big money crunch. They even thought of selling the property of the embassy in Buenos Aires.

    @4 and 5

    As you all say, a leopard neaver changes its spots.

    Britain and any European nation are the most treacherous races on Earth. Fact.

    Check the history of treaties between Europe and the people of the Americas. 90% renege or perfidy rate. An atrocious record.

    As for this news, the UK has a great sense of timing, announcing the embassy in the middle of what many consider a coup LOL! (not saying I do, just seems awful timing in terms of how it looks)

    Oh your back Mr TTT?
    First of all please provide some evidence for you accusation as regards treaties.
    Bad timing? This was planned when the tories came into power, as part of a more open foreign policy the idea was to have an embassy for all countries in SA, if i remember correctly the UK embassy in BA acted for Paraguay you see.

    Oh and about the coup, Mr Malvinero1 said that South America was brilliant in every way. And that it was the UK that was:
    Finished!!!!
    Corrupt, decadent!!!!
    Finished economically!!!!
    Get out of UK!!!!
    Ja ja ja ja ja!!!!

    Surely even you find him irritating?
