    I thought the Labour Unions were the buddies of CFK ??
    I guess not.

    “Oligarchs” aren't to blame this time.

    Why doesn't Kristina send in her army of La Campora unemployed??

    Very frustrating for her.

    She better do something fast...

    What's your point, Marcos?? BC has nothing to do with Argentine Labour :-)

    Is CFK a champion of Argentina's working poor , or not?

    Will she sell them out ??

    Will she give in to the “Oligarchs”? Will she 'take from the people' for US $$, to pay foreigners??

    LOL, waiting....

    You will be collecting your old age pension before you hear any sensible comment from the Argies.

    The longer this strike goes on the more damage to The Dark Country there will be.

    Didn't the same thing happen last year and the year before? It must be hard for TMBOA to accept that “her” people are so “difficult” for her to deal with.

    I think it’s still evens as to whether TMBOA and her viperous brood will make it “out of Dodge” before she is strung up from a lamp post.

    I would pay good money to see the latter though.

    Cap or Yank should have that info.

    Now seems that the Subway staff are also considering industrial action.

    Don't you just love seeing KFC's model in action?

    Silly Argentines. If they need to see thier own future, just look to the Venezuelan model;

    People are dying.
    The Government is massively corrupt.
    There is critical insecurity and constant danger in the streets.
    A critical lack of medicine.
    The World’s highest Inflation Rate.

    A critical lack of basic goods and services.
    An ideological take-over leading to a Vene-Cuban form of enforced indentured state-dependency.
    Widespread media censorship.
    Constant repression of political opposition.
    THOUSANDS illegally jailed without trial.
    Daily torture and abuse of the Human Rights of the population.
    Why does Latin America remain silent?
    Why is Mercopress NOT reporting on the chaos in Venezuela?

    “Why does Latin America remain silent?

    Good questions for everyone !

    Why wouldn't a news group report something like this?

    Surely the this story of human ought is not acceptable !??

    Not only are Argentina banning Falkland flagged vessels, they've now got a ban on their own ships-you couldn't make this up.

    Come on Quickfit! Export those tyres now!

    Hang on! I've got 5 tyres growing potatoes and an old tractor tyre-how can I export these to Argentina and make a mint?

    The spuds can go in the ground!
