    Oh Patiño, Paraguay regrets that Maduro called for the Paraguayan army to attempt a coup.

    Not sure if that would fit in a twitter message!

    Exactly. Why do these guys have such short term memory loss?

    Perhaps Cartes assumed that Maduro was picking everyone up in the big yellow bus and driving them to the inauguration, thus de facto attending!

    A mistake by Paraguay. Here is a list of people that should not have been invited to President-elect Cartes' inauguration. Rafael Correa. Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. Evo Morales. Jose Mujica. Question mark over Ollanta Humala. Although he might have squeezed in because Peru is a member of the Pacific Alliance. Perhaps we can hope that someone is in a position to have Correa arrested for the theft of US$3 billion. We can hope that CFK will fall over and bend her plastic face. Perhaps Evo will throw a paddy. Meanwhile, Papa “Pepe” can dribble his mate down the front of his shirt. Potential laughs all around!

    There is always an opportunity for the underdog hosting the event (as I am sure the Presidential twats who are going think of Paraguay) to get rid of their problem in one blinding flash.

    Mmmm. Any takers?

    Well, Chris, they could always have a quiet word with the Iranians.
    I hear they're pretty good at the 'blinding flashes' in the Southern Cone.

    Patiño and his boss, Rafael Correa, love to intervene in the affairs of other nations.

    It is a hobby they jointly enjoy - ignore them!

    At least the British government fully investigated our terrorist bombings.
    The government still keeps much secret with the Argentinian bombing.

    The British government has also passed more than a dozen laws making it illegal to encourage and/or call for terrorist acts on the Internet, as poster ChrisR has done repeatedly in here, latest at his above comment No. (5)...

    Bad, bad taste of you to play his psychopath game…..

    You know I ONLY play my own game.
    Sometimes this allows you to agree with me, sometimes not;
    but I don't do the troll-thing.

    Chris is much more sound than most ... yeah, ocassionally he does a Conq.

    PS Roadmasters are a defunct type of US ute/Buick saloon/bicycle; I think you mean Routemasters.

    @11 The Bitter And Twisted Old Twat Of Chew Butt

    How is post 5 CALLING for an act of terrorism? Do you not understand English?

    If you want me to “threaten” you it seems all I need to do is remind you of my razor sharp flick-knive(s) and don’t forget my hand-made 2/3 scale Bowie knife in carbon steel with mirror finish to the blade and brass guard, square section “battle” handle. Ohh, are you frightened now?

    FFS grow up before you croak it, how old are you now? 80?, 82? Have you spent all your life quaking in your shoes and calling people psychopaths?

    Don’t forget if you want to meet a psychopath you have only to go to Casa Rosada: they have quite a number of them there.

    LOLs, you stupid, stupid old man.
