    Open courts. A non-political judiciary. Zero corruption. A free and fair system of justice, by the people, for the people. Transparency and accountability.

    Just think, it could have all been so different.....

    (2) You silly, romantic city Bint...

    Have you ever lived in a closely knitted isolated, almost inbred little community as Malvinas?

    Everything is so transparent, accountable, non political, uncorrupt, free and fair...
    UNTIL you, eventually, cross the invisible line and break the unwritten rules...

    The level of aggression and ostracism such a community do apply to deviants, digressors or dissidents would make ISIS very..., very... envious.

    Really interesting insight to the FI courts and legal system. The neighbours can only look on with envy. The constant stories of bribery, corruption and politicking must be very disheartening for the average Argentine. No wonder so many of them are Anglophiles.

    Funnily enough the Argentine Gov. is always 'demanding' things too.
    Demanding that Obama interfers in the judiciary of the USA.
    Demanding 'negotiations' with the UK but excluding the F.I.G.
    Demanding apologies from the BBC re: Top Gear.

    How's that working out so far?

    Ok, I'll throw the old dog a bone before the Alzhiemers finally kicks in...

    Just for contrast;
    Here is how it works in Venezuela:
    ”After so many years, few things chavistas throw our way make us do a double take. This one did: Delcy Rodríguez, Nicolás Maduro’s former minister of Communications, the über-chavista, radical sister of equally über-chavista mayor of Libertador (Caracas) Jorge Rodríguez, wants to be … a justice in the nation’s highest court!

    Never mind the fact that she is a blatantly partisan choice (surprisingly, our Constitution doesn’t say that justices have to be non-partisan). As far as I know, she is not qualified to be a justice. She’s a lawyer, and she got some graduate degree in France, but has she ever judged anything in her life? All her work has been in the public sector, defending the revolution from enemies near and wide.

    Here she is, calling people who protest in the streets “terrorists.” There she was, calling striking SIDOR workers “guarimberos.” People who disagree with the government are at the service “of the empire.” And with regards to free speech? Here she is, justifying the government’s censorship of news organization NTN24.

    All of Delcy Rodríguez’s public life has been one long justification for the wretched excesses of the Revolution. Very little of it has to do with the law, and all of it has to do with politics.”

    taken from: http://caracaschronicles.com/2014/11/13/judge-delcy/

    Is that how it works in Argentina too?

    I 'think' it will soon. Dear Leader KFC only likes friendly, malleable judges and sets her dogs on the others. Arg & Ven, in a race to the bottom.

    Meanwhile, I hear that certain judges in Argentina are too busy investigating each other, mud-slinging and politicking to concern themselves with their actual jobs...

    That's if the transport strikes and blackouts don't keep them at home.

    Very poor show.

    Anyhow.... with the high wages and tax exemptions the Argentinean federal judges enjoy..., I would be very surprised if any of them didn't live in a building with own generator and didn't have an official car with a private driver...

    Well I'm glad that makes it all ok in your eyes. Such low expectations you have there. A little different than the high standards the Falkland Islanders have come to expect, I think you will find.
    Great to see them going from strength to strength whilst you struggle on the sidelines.

    Here's how it works in Argentina:

    “No serious country would search a company that belongs to the president,” Senator Aníbal Fernández warned. “It shows a lack of decorum, an absolute lack of decorum.”

    Very good link HansN.
    proves my point exactly. El Stinko is on such a losing streak, I bet he wishes he had not opened that can of worms.
    Cristina even resorts to twitter to attack a member of the Argentine judiciary. Unthinkable in a 'normal' country. Who would wish to live in this crazy messed up place?

    How long before Argentina starts imprisoning opposition Senators and 'inconvenient' Judges?
    I give it 6 months.
    Cristina is running scared.

    “UNTIL you, eventually, cross the invisible line and break the unwritten rules...

    The level of aggression and ostracism such a community do apply to deviants, digressors or dissidents would make ISIS very..., very... envious.”

    Think just described Argentina. Where deviation from the dead weight of Peronism and its newest incarnation Kirchnerism is so unacceptable that they even have their own version of the Brown Shirts in La Campora.

    Unfortunately I couldn't include “transparent, accountable, non political, uncorrupt, free and fair...” in the quote because that isn't used to describe Argentina any longer.

    Here is a nice little story about an Argentine Judge, favoured by the ruling party, 'investigating' another Judge who is investigating corruption within the ruling party.

    I'm surprised they find the time to do any real 'judging' at all.

    “Judge not lest ye be judged” is a rather original basis for any legal system. Amazing innovators, these Peronists.

    About that investigation, the police went to Hotesur headquarters and found an empty flat. Now why would the address on a tax document for a company owned by the president of Argentina be an empty apartment? ;)

    “On November 20, Bonadío ordered a raid on Hotesur’s headquarters, where police officers only found an empty flat.”

    3. Sistah, it sounds like you are speaking from experience. Did that happen in Chubut or Dunoon?
    Did everyone ostracize you and that's why you're so miserable, bitter and alone.

    Yeah it is.

    Yes a very poignant story from Turnip Sistah @3.

    He seems quite impassioned in his speech - yeah, he fell short of someone's standards - they probably realised he is just an arrogant sh!t.
