    @1 Bongo

    Rabies? No, that was on the 'Job-Spec.' without the diagnosis she wouldn't have attained such 'heights'!
    Her 'lumbago/back-pain' is a direct result of bending over backwards to 'receive' Castro's 'lunch'...
    In reality, she is just hiding, counting her dollars, packing suitcases, topping-up on botox and planning her exit.
    Tango 1 Tango 1! Damn It! Tango 1 Where are you? The people are at the gates! Tango 1! pleaaaasssseeee.......

    Are you suggesting she acquired lumbago from doing the Limbo?

    Let's hope it doesn't result in another well qualified Doctor with an outstanding practical record being fired by TMBOA for the “negative” result, the only misdiagnosed result in 36,000.

    She really does need the to be topped to put her and all of us out of our misery.

    It is probably because of the amount of US$ stuffed into her suitcases, I know how she feels and I sympasise with her as I had the same problem when I went to the bank to collect my money ( I made a lot of money betting that Rockhopper would find OIL in the FALKLANDS ) I am betting that the Oil Companies will find a lot more OIL and GAS in the FALKLANDS in 2015

    Mmmmmmm Lumbago, now there's a word straight out of history. It was coined and covered a broad spectrum of low back pain. However now in the world of modern medicine they have narrowed low backup pain to Spinal stenosis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Herniation, Osteoarthritis and the list goes on. Perhaps she needs a medically trained physician familiar with 21 century technology. But then again....the brain surgery was a gem. Does anyone know is the transplant took?

    What amazes me is that she is the only woman probably in the history of neuro-surgery that a month later on has a full head of hair. But what is more amazing is that no-one, including all of the international press, realized it was a complete lie to get some time for some more plastic and botox injections. I notice too her “scar” from the fake thyroid operation has disappeared too. You cant make this stuff up really. Argentina is like a soap opera that you couldnt make up if you tried.

    The chances are Kicillof is removed and CFK appoints Blejer into the Ministery of Economy than herself leaving office...One doesn’t walk out of power that easily in Argentina with so many crimes and corruption to cover, she has to settle her exit strategy and protection from whom ever is coming in next to power, someone that has to hide under carpet all the dirt. I don’t buy the abdication for health reasons unless they want to place Rojkes or Boudou which is very unlikely... She is too proud for early exit and besides it is a great peronist asset they sell to the electorate that they are the only ones able to finish their full government term, not the case of the UCR who has never completed a full democratic term since Peronist party exists.

    Wow Vestige. Ya think?

    A woman born in 1953 “will most likely outlive” one born in 1926?

    No sh!t Sherlock.

    Poor Cristina is falling apart after 5 years and two months in the job. Not very long. She's in and out of hospital more than 87 year old Elizabeth II.

    The Queen has reigned LONGER than Cristina has been alive! Born almost a fortnight into Queen Elizabeth's reign. Soon to be record breaking reign too. In 587 days.

    Poor Cristina. Her reign will be short. And will be remembered for economic incompetency and failing to gain the Falkland Islands.

    And let's face it, Cristina's chances of making it to 87 aren't looking crash hot at the moment, let alone 73.

    27 -

    You start with...
    “A woman born in 1953 “will most likely outlive” one born in 1926?

    No sh!t Sherlock. ”

    I like that you take my estimate which is based only on the age factor and health reports as though its an obvious certainty....

    ... and then say...
    “And let's face it, Cristina's chances of making it to 87 aren't looking crash hot at the moment, let alone 73”.
    “Poor Cristina is falling apart after 5 years ”.
    “She's in and out of hospital more than 87 year old Elizabeth II. ”

    Guess its not so certain given those factors.
    That kind of makes it an uncertainty....or you might say...a “likely”-hood.

    And as for.
    “The Queen has reigned LONGER than Cristina has been alive”.

    LOL what this is a competition between who's been a head of state/alive longer now.

    Hey guess what - Obama has been a head of state LONGER than that loser 5 year olds been alive! Lets see him get born in the 60's ... ha ... he couldnt even manage to get born in the noughties.

    “Soon to be record breaking reign too”
    - what you mean she actually managed to be born, get given a title for nothing, and live a long life in luxury. Not really so difficult is it. Kind of hard to get fired too.

    I guess if I outlive my first schoolmates that will make me an achiever somehow too. Ill be the longest living person with my name in history in 587 days.

    I'd advise to try for just 1 day dropping the culturally programmed sycophantic thinking for someone a world away who doesn't know of or care about you. Its not your fault you were given an un-elected idol.

    37) Because to do so your PMs must understand politics, they dont have any blood in them they are collage boys...You want some advice?? It's easy, Cameron has to trash her in the G-20 summit, in front of all the world's leaders and all the international media cameras simply say to her something like “look beaach... if your claim is worth anything there is the ICJ in the Hague... We are waiting for you. I dont care about non biding resolutions of the 1960s. till I get an ICJ court ruling, thats my word” …. Or simply say to her “I will gladly sign the papers of the transfer of sovereignty to the Republic of Argentina when you and the next peronist governments stop stealing from your country to virtual bankruptcy each 10 years”.....She will shut up then...
