Spain's official population fell last year for the first time since the 1940s as immigrants fled a five-year on-and-off recession that has sent unemployment soaring. The number of residents fell by 206,000 to 47.1 million, the National Statistics Institute said on Monday. Read full article

    You should never laugh at other peoples misfortunes, unless it is the argies because they work so hard to screw everything up.

    And Brasil has its own problems with no-one actually setting the finance strategy of the country. Or if they are it is the wrong strategy, perhaps that's why they keep it under wraps.

    The only other comparable situation is the mythical “model” operated by TMBOA, but no-one has the balls to tell her the rubber band has broken and the model is crashing.

    I know you don't believe me, but I bet I am nearer reality than you and you LIVE THERE”

    Now, I wonder what you are? A failed argie (as they all are who write English like you) living in the UK or some other genetic throwback.

    And, little boy, if you ever said that to my face: well, lets say the dogs would make a meal of you, crap as it would be.

    Enjoy insulting my mother (at least I had one) while you can. Remember the saying: play with the big boys at your peril, I have some VERY nice big boys with me and at least two in Peterborough.

    So, not to be dismissive or insensitive of Spain's problems, does this mean I will have more room on the beach next week?

    Ok Chrissy, whaterver you said, but that will not change the fact that your mummy wears a wig and work in a corner at night on Lincoln rd.

    And I give you a tip: Do not moan about people insulting you when you are the first pathetic looser who wish Argentina bad, just for the fun of it. ;)

    Ah! So you ARE a dumb fcuk argie, I thought so.

    Anything to do with this perchance:

    Cordoba, eh? You are not the stupid bastard in the sock for a hat by any chance are you?

    Or are you that unintelligent that you had to pick your tag off a cats piss lager tin?

    BTW, the day I need ANY 'tips' from the likes of you will be the day I stop posting on MP.

    Now fcuk off and play with the autos on the caminera.

    # 2 - Yeah, laughing at other people's mistfortune truly isn't the right things to do. But since Europeans love laughing at the mistfortune in other places, I thought it would be good to give a taste of their own medicine. Brazil has it's problems, that is true. We are still a developing nation. But for a developed nation like Spain to go through what it is going, is just sheer incompetence. Funny how a few years ago Spain didn't want to let anymore Brazilians in, and now they're begging for more Brazilian tourists and asking Brazil to ease work visa requirements so that Spanish citizens can find jobs in Brazil. That's life for ya.

    # 4 - Wow what a Macho Macho Man! Just because your mom's a ho doesn't mean you have the courage to hit anyone. Threatening someone online has as much credibility as Tony Blair talking about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq!

    @8 Brazilian

    When you find your mother perhaps you can ask her who your father is: I bet it was the German Shepherd. And being of German descent he will know more about economics than you. Ha, ha, ha.

    Haven't answered the question have you? So I take it I am correct about you and Cordoba. Are you the one in the sock or the one with the little tits?

    BTW I don't bad mouth Argentines. I DO badmouth the dumb fcuk argies, Campora thugs, malvanistas and of course the Peronistas. All fair game as far as I am concerned with how they disrespect the Falklanders and the Brits.

    So that still leaves 20 / 30 million of Argentines who suffer under the hand of TMBOA and her gang of wanabe thugs. These people have my sincere sympathy.

    # 10 - Wow what an angry crocodile dundee! The Olympic games are in 2016, and the World Cup is next year. I guess what your two neurons were trying to think up was of the Confederations Cup, which is in a few months. And to tell you the truth, I could care less about any of those events, as far as I'm concerned they could all be transfered to Australia so you people down under pay the bill. Now, shit face is the best you can do? What, are you in 3rd grade? What do I think is so funny? The irony of history that always slaps arrogant nations in the face!

    Argentina will never be in a position to host the Olympics.
