    Is there a mistake in this article? It says “The central government wants to transfer the management of the subway system to the city of Buenos Aires but Macri will only accept them if they do not include the subsidies. Otherwise, among other things he would be forced to double the current fare.” Surely the Federal “government” wants to transfer the subway system but WITHOUT the subsidies? That's so that the subsidies can be “diverted” into various capacious handbags and pockets and Buenos Aires has to pick up the bill for the difference. Now that CFK has spent US$6 million in the last 2-3 years, or conveniently “lost” it in the accounting, as well as the US$1 billion dead hubby “re-directed”, she must be really short of cash. I hope that everybody realises that, the way her money is disappearing, by the time she gets to the end of her current presidential term, this “poor” woman will actually be broke!

    I hope they all go to jail. Glad i live far away from all that mess.
    One has to admire the patience of almost 1 million of people using that service every day.
    I don't understand why people are not reacting to this. I mean, did everyone become that lazy that it doesn't even complain anymore?

    Back in the day stuff like this would mean madness, riots, etc. Now everyone is like they don't care anymore.

    This country has definitely lost the will to fight for a better future.
    We are doomed with the cancerous peronists president and all the thugs that support all this people,
    Of course, Macri is not an example neither.

    The reality is NOBODY wants anything manufactured in Argentina. The quality of Argentine produced products is laughable. The appliances both small and large last about 3 months until they break down. Cheap, shoddy materials, and the designs look like things that I found in my grandmothers basement in 1960. So if you like cheap, retro imitations that don't funcion and need to be constantly fixed, then go for the Argie junk. The factory workers work about 5 hours per day, for inflated salaries, and if their boss asks them to do anything they complain to the union shop steward, who files a lawsuit or calls a strike against the factory owner. This is how Argentina works! It's the biggest failed experiment ever, called the “República Argentina” that is ruled by the criminal Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner (a/k/a scrotum neck) that has stolen BILLIONS of dollars from the Argentine people, tries everything in her power to squash her detractors, silence the press, opress the citizens, steal their money with extorsive and invented taxes, it's well known that she never even finished her law degree but says she is a a lawyer, her children the horribly ugly Florencia and pudgy fat Maximo have high ranking government positions but have never set foot in a university, a vice-president Amado Boudou who is a small time criminal mafioso who owns companies that he awards government contracts to for millions - Argentina is a bastion of modern day CORRUPTION - all countries should avoid doing business with Argentina like it was a PLAGUE - this Kirchner disaster cancer must be taken down and thrown to rot in jail forever along with her cronies - down with this PERONIST garbage who talk about “social justice” and are only interested in their own power and wealth and do NOTHING for the citizens of the country but steal their hard earned money and possessions and talk about how awesome they are. Cristina Kirchner even once said that “god wanted her to be president and rule Argentina”!

    The reality is macri is incompetent and corrupt. The situation in Bs. As. Is an attempt by macri to extort money from the president, macri works for EU and USA. This is no news to me.

    I blame Macri for this mess. I don't know if he's right about “the Kirchnerites” being behind the strike, but I wouldn't see it as a bad thing if they were! These tube strikers are real working class heros who put Moyano to shame

    Its obviously a power play by cristina trying to bend the city to her crazy ways but it wont work.

    macri is as corrupt as the rest of them but he may be slightly better than cristina and her cronies.

    its important to note macri is also a peronist!

    @9 Is he? I've been trying to make sense of argie political parties. Didn't Macri lead the Commitment to Change party? And didn't that merge with Recrear to form Propuesta Republicana. Recrear and PRO don't seem to particularly come over as peronist. Although I suppose it might be that all argie political parties are peronist to a greater or lesser extent. So, is it just peronist in-fighting? How about a list of all political parties showing which aren't peronist?

    I hope they stay on strike forever:

    1) none of the population will be killed on the metro system due to the poor state of the rolling stock;
    2) eventually, the travelling masses will relise this is all down to The Mad Bitch Of Argentina trying to crush her opposition by 'giving' the system to BA City without financial subsidies and then blaming BA City for the inevitable fare rises.

    BK (BSK) Just like you supported the Labour commies in Scotland that wrecked the industry there. I hope you have your way again. Argentina really deserves you.

    CFK was busy getting Venezuela into mercosur while macri was watching the metro fall apart from under his feet on his watch.
    #8 the only metal for macri should be led about an ounce of it in his brains good call.
    #9 macri is a leach who should go back to europe. ASAP.

    ¨Mayor Macri, who is the main leader of the opposition and the candidate with greatest chances for the 2015 presidential election.¨
    lol, who could possibly want to be president of Argentina in 2015? Cristina´s gonna leave the country a complete and total wreck. Whoever takes over will be walking straight into a minefield. I wouldn´t want to be pres of Argentina even if they offered it to me right now free of charge.

    Anal lips will rewrite the constitution after she after she deploys the military against her own people for their own safety and will re-run and be re-elected. With what she has done to the military, thats all they are capable of fighting.
