    Personally, chronic hopes Cretina a long and healthly life so that so can possibly enjoy the fruits of her efforts - among them discreditation, incarceration, poverty, shame, humiliation, privation, etc., etc.

    @3 I agree, as Isolde (I think) once said. CFK is the best General the Falklands never had.
    Her ineptitude and constant caterwauling actually keeps the Islands safe as the world looks on a sniggers quietly.

    “The General Secretariat to the Presidency will indicate next week when she (CFK) will have a rally,”

    WTF! Is she going to use one of the Top Gear cars to do the rally in. If so she will have to pull rank on the governer who has already given his son the Porsche.

    I bet she wants another 'shunt up the rear', nod, nod; wink, wink.

    Well the G20 is over, and no one missed her, and Argentina was not even mentioned,

    she should thus just stay in hiding, no one will even notice she has gone...

    jeez... normal politicitians, in normal countries don't have 'rallies' every five minutes!
    They are too busy working, doing what they have been paid, and elected to do.
    Who is paying for these rallies?

    Where did she get the idea or these rallies, has she been enviously watching archive footage of a certain swaggering politician with a pencil moustache from the 1940s? Why does she need a political rally, she can't stand for president at the next election.......or can she???

    as always RICO, you hit the nail on the head. I think we will see some rallies next year, in order to extend her term in office.. 'that she has “so much work to do etc”.
    ref: the 'Eternal Commander Chavez* the Dear Hugo“
    This seems a quite frequent occurance in Lat Am ”democracies” ...

    Make no mistake all the jokers. The Cristina government has done a lot and continues to do it, changing things for the better in spite of the attacks and little conspirators' practices. It will be difficult to turn back the country after her.
    I guess this' too much for black-or-white, 19th Century-style analysts.
