If no presidential candidate makes 50% of valid ballots plus one, the most probable result a run off takes place at the end of November between the two most voted candidates. Read full article

    What I have always thought would happen when you get a ”political movement, a catch all coalition which extends from former guerrillas (such as President Mujica) and Trotskyites to Socialists and Christian Democrats” and a falling out: blood on the streets if the harridan La Tronca is to be believed.

    Now the unions can see that the strangle hold they have over the country may just be under threat! GOOD.

    GO, GO, POU!

    Piss off back to The Cesspit POLLY!

    Sounds like ARGENTINA is holding them back economically - failed investment - no dredging, bullying pulp mill expansion etc.

    Argentina has a long history of trying to bully its neighbours. Just ask Chile!

    I have been to Chile several times in the past.
    Have you polly?

    I know several Chileans in London.
    I have Chilean friends in Norwich.
    I used to know some Chileans in Venezuela but they have left now.

    Have you been to any of these places polly? Have you spoken to people about history and politics, about life?
    Have you polly?

    All these people say they don't like Argentine people as they are arrogant bullies, or try to be bullies until told otherwise.

    The fact that you arrive here @5 and call me a nabo and a dimwit and start swearing at me with no reason... well, doesn't that prove me to be correct?

    Heh guys, they've seemingly let Stevie out of the asylum!

    Oh dear, how sad, never mind.

    Oh yes, the FA are impressive on how a bunch of misfits, dimwits and crooks can blind-side a significant part of the population for so long; but it looks like it’s all over now.

    “And what happens if the coalition does not manage a majority in congress? Well First Lady and Senator Lucia Topolansky was very direct: “it does not matter we can manage because we'll get the people out in the streets”.”

    Is that some sort of veiled threat? Surely if the people have voted, then the people have spoken, and she should have to live with it?

    Or am I missing the point?

    You asked, I answered.

    Be more specific, like on your last post.

    @10 Wow, our Sage and onions from Chubut conversing with Stevie in dog ((or is it bitch?) Latin. ¡Qué maravilla!
    It's a long time since I did Latin composition so this will have to do.
    O piscator, o equum domitor! Ego suadeant ut mundatis vesta flumina turbidae et corruptae et mundo primum Augiae stabulo ante vos polluimini flumininus septentionalem ripam Plata!
    Latin purists please correct.
    Oh fisherman , oh horse tamer. I suggest that you clean up your own turbid and corrupt waters and first muck out your own Augean stables before polluting waters on the northern shore of the Rio de la Plata.
    Or to put in Russian -- buggerovski tovarich!

    @ 18 ilsen

    Forget what Lunatic and his equally infantile mate Stevie are warbling on about: neither live in Uruguay and are just troublemaking due to the fact they have nothing positive to post.

    La Tronca, the harridan wife of “No Money Pepe” is supposed to be a hard case or ‘stern woman’; it also means ‘tree-trunk’ which I think is far more apt given her arboreal looks.

    Given she was actively hands on as a Tupa and she has never respected the electoral process if the elected party doesn’t suit her views, then yes she would TRY to get the people out on the street.

    Even the son of the Tupa Leader (of the same name, a failed lawyer in the same manner as TMBOA) educated in CUBA, now trying for VP with Vasquez and of U$D300M ‘misplaced’ money fame, had to come out and distance The Broad Fraud from the old hag. Like father, like son it seems.

    Will it work, will the Broad Fraud succeed, will Tupa pigs fly, let’s hope not: for the good of the country if nothing else.

    @19 As a matter of curiosity, do the topsy turvey turnips in Chubut all have pointy heads?. Do they get infested with earwigs? Severe infestation of hochigollochs can affect the brain you know

    Stevie, the Supa Dupa Tupa is back!!

    Or was he ever away??

    “USAF” and who else, Stevie?

    Uruguayan, “Stevie” the Tupa contemporary of Pepe - noble Freedom Fighters of the early 70's.
    Uruguayan, “Stevie”, the Avant-Garde Socialist ideologue of today, ridiculing Captain Poppy for “being old”.
    Argentine “Stevie” - Anti-Brit, anti-Falklander/pro-Malvinista.

    Stevie-the-fraud, here to spread your lies again

    46% in the polls, Chris. That's like Sweden in the early 80's.... Nice!

    Troy, I know you missed me, please stand in line.

    Think, you always make me chuckle. Nice to see you as good as ever.

    Wasn't me conqui. I wasn't there. I understand your anger, but I don't even like men that way.
    I promise, it wasn't me and even if your anger is understandable, you should direct it to the one that commited such atrocity.
