On Sunday Uruguayan voters will confirm in a runoff the country's next president, which according to all forecasts will be Tabare Vazquez. An oncologist by training, former president (2005/2009) and former mayor of the City of Montevideo, Vazquez and the Broad Front coalition was just less than three percentage points short of the needed 50% in the first round on October 26.

    So Mujica still wants to run it all TGW the old cow he eventually married.

    No surprise there then.

    This uneducated idiot, bereft of any positive foresight, accurately reflects the majority of people in Uruguay to the detriment of ALL, including themselves.

    Having an uneducated murdering commie bastard as the president might sound attractive to the unions who are of the same ilk, but great long term damage is being done to the country.

    It's about time this pot smoking advocate STFU and stayed on his farm.

    This is exactly what you get when you have “parties” like the Broad Fraud who are nothing but a bed of turmoil and in-fighting just to get some of them from each little party “in power”.

    Well, the voters have voted, so fuck them.

    No surprise there then.

    This semi-educated idiot, bereft of any positive foresight, accurately reflects a vast minority of people in England to the detriment of ALL, including themselves.

    It's about time this anti-pot smoking advocate STFU and returns to England.

    Well, the voters have voted, so fuck him...

    @ 2 Lunatic

    Is that all you could come up with, really?

    Oh dear, no ChrisR will be going back England? YOU have been predicting this for almost FOUR years and you are still WRONG! What must it feel like to ALWAYS be wrong: ah, like a LUNATIC!

    Bit pissed off with me criticising the Broad Fraud?

    Well, I have some news for you sunshinee:

    YOU don't live in Uruguay, I do;

    YOU don't pay taxes in Uruguay, I do;

    YOU do not hold a legal residency in Uruguay, I do;

    YOU can fuck off.

    Anglo Ex Pat Turnip at (3)
    I have met dozens of turnipy Anglo Ex Pats like you...

    I had a Costa Rican wife once that made herself a considerable fortune giving legal counsel to the likes of you, to first Expatriate to tropical Pura Vida paradise and later Repatriate back to their missed Northern Anglo Homelands...
    Geeeee...... She was a smart little Tica, she was. :-)))

    As a matter of fact, each an every negative comment you utter about the County you voluntarily choose for Expatriation brings you closer to that inevitable day of your Repatriation...

    And, just for your info..., ALL MercoSur citizens hold, since 2014, an Automatic Permanent Residence in Uruguay...

    Inform yourself, Anglo Turnip...

    @ 4 Lunatic

    Oh dear, so WRONG on so many points. Where to start, let’s try the FIRST sentence.

    YOU have never met me and I will tell you this with complete confidence you have NEVER met anyone quite like me. For your sake make sure you NEVER do meet me.

    Now this poor little wife. I bet she left you, didn’t she? Come on, tell the truth once in your horrible life of lying and destroying what character you once may have had by the constant spewing of vitriol and drinking yourself silly on alcohol and perhaps, drugs.

    Now this FACT you are twittering on about. I made the mistake of thinking the average Uruguayo is intelligent and educated. I have met many of them now and have to admit that they are not so endowed: much like you they cannot really think ahead and constantly lie in an attempt to cover up their mistakes. So I have decided why should I care about them and they have the same consideration that I place on you. You DO know what I think of you: YES, I think you do.

    Now the crowning glory, the so called Automatic Permanent Residency for the likes of scum like you. NOT SO.

    Have you read this item, do you understand it, do you understand the Uruguayo mentality when it comes to the Ley? Clearly you do not. I can only relate what happened in January this year when an argie family: dad with a nose like a bullnose dolphin but of course without the other attractive features, little wife, three daughters and at last a son, ALL waiting in line for their papers to be checked at immigration.

    The lady dealing with me, who spoke excellent English told my Escribana and me that they will have to go through the process more or less as we did, especially the criminal record check, oh dear, fell at the first hurdle.

    Also, the Cedula, if and when they ever get one, will be valid for THREE YEARS, just like ALL other immigrants.

    Yes, yankkeboy is correct about you: ALWAYS WRONG.

    I can see that you have as much respect for the native population of Uruguay, the Country you are guesting, as the Islamists overtaking Dear Ol' Blighty have for them Engrish folks...

    They use a “Holy Book” as an excuse for their Turnipidity...
    What's YOUR excuse?

    One more election...once more the good side wins in Latin America...and the dark 1970s become a distant memory. We did have good people able to govern...only in the past they were imprisoned, kidnapped, tortured and disappeared.
    But as soon as the grip was a bit released, the real potential of the sub-continent began to can't be stopped it now, despite all the doom and gloom prophesies of those locked in the past.

    “It can't be stopped now”, you say...
    I tend to concord with you, but...
    Some paranoid elements of the Anglosphere power Elite are brainwashing the normal Anglo population to a point where they would quitely accept the USAF lodging a couple of Hellfire missiles on their own sleeping grandmother's farm in Smallville, Lowell Country, Kansas...
    Just by mentioning the word...:“Terrorism”, that is...

    I remember a rumour at Planalto some years ago....
    Lula, just returned from his visit to GWB, revitalized the whole Brasilian Nuclear Programme by saying textually..: “That man is messianic..., we need the bomb to defend ourself...”

    Who knows...
    History will show...

    Have a nice Sunday...

    @ 8 Lunatic
    “I can see that you have as much respect for the native population of Uruguay, the Country you are guesting,(sic)”

    WRONG AGAIN! How do you do it? Even the most stupid people get it right at some time. WHAT native people? They were all murdered by the Spaniards and the decedents of Spaniards just like the argies did in “The Conquest of the Desert”, what an edifying spectacle that must have been.

    AND now you are comparing my realistic portrayal of the Broad Fraud idiots and their Muppet followers with Islamist Extremism: are you MENTALLY ILL? You are certainly living up to the Lunatic tag I gave you.

    Anyway, WHO gives you the right to behave as if you are a genuine argie lunatic? You were not born in Argentina according to your posts, but why should we believe them as you perpetually lie through what is left of your teeth?

    So you have no more status in TDC than I do in Uruguay apart from I invest a lot of money in the country and also help young people overcome the limitations of the education system, whereas you are just a lunatic.

    you dont know a shite about the conquista del desierto, about the amerindians in argentina or in uruguay, about argentina or about uruguay.
    again, all you can do is thank the uruguayans for giving you refuge, period.
    as for the rest, do yourself a favour and keep it shut.

    If anybody doubted that the Lunatic had lost the argument, YOU have just proved conclusively that he has.

    Thank you.
