    Love to visit Chile and the Falklands, no interest in spending my hard earned Sterling anywhere else down there.

    Your sterling is worthless, so keep dreaming.

    I suppose with the RG peso falling through the floor, some might find Argentina an attractive winter destination. I think I'll avoid the place until they stop brainwashing their children and spouting aggressive idiocy. Lots of other places to go where there are happy friendly people without chips on their shoulders :)

    Fido's 'worthless' is baseless,
    and, #1, I can strongly recommend Brasil's coast for some great holidays ... sufficiently different from 'western' beach-recliner resorts to make a holiday interesting. And Iguacu Falls, the Chapada Diamantina, Amazonia, etc offer tourism that the cogniscenti travel the world to experience.

    If I met a British national in my city, I'd personally enforce our policy of reciprocity with Europe and Jean-Charles-Menezes the bastard. Volunteer, Geoff?

    #5 judging by the quality of your postings you are what, 12 years old maybe?

    Shouldn't be too much of a fight really.

    @1 I wouldn't be put off visiting Argentina. You can get more than 7 pesos for one of your pounds. If you take dollars you will be offered large discounts to pay in cash, so you can get a good value holiday. And you will receive a warm welcome from the Argentines. There really is not the animosity that you read on these blogs. You will be pestered a little by people wanting to work in the UK and asking if you could help them get a job but it won't spoil your holiday.

    If you really don't want to give too much money to Argentina it is easily avoided as many hotels will ask you to pay into foreign bank accounts if you don't have dollars cash.

    Argentina has many lovely places to visit, especially away from BsAs but no great beaches. If you want that then I would recommend Chile. In fact, I would recommend Chile over Argentina for any holiday. JMO

    if you ever met a bloody real man,
    all you would do, is make a puddle on the pavement, alone side
    the rest of your fellow anti british wierdos.

    I'm pretty sure that the real Forgetit's son is using his father's ID to make his own comments here.
    The real Forgetit is educated and erudite, particularly over matters financial. He would never make the sort of comments we have been seeing over the last few weeks.

    The comment in #5 Forgetit87 just proves that these IDs are interchangable for the malvinista mob.

    As Geoff says Forgetit was an extremely well educated poster who, for all his/her mistaken theories never lowered him/herself to the sort of claptrap posted in #5.

    all he has to do, is come on here and tell us, its not him,

    we see no sign of this,

    if indeed his son is using his name, then his son, should say sorry, for abusing his fathers good name,
    [ should he not ]
