    If you paid your debts Axel none of this would be necessary.

    Why is he whining like a baby again? Is it because he didn't want to have to pay and now the excuse that he wanted to but couldn't has gone?

    Ohh, he still wants to pay, of course he does, it just that he fears he might break some local law if he did.
    It is quite a new thing to him, this 'respecting laws', he hasn't quite grasped it yet.
    He needs to take it really slow. He is really unsure how to proceed. He is trying to remember which laws are to be respected, and which ones aren't. Also what is lies and what is truth. And what he said to whom. And when.

    Oh bless! Baby has got all confused. ...!

    Just grow up Axel and Pay Up.

    Tough. Citigroup is an American company. Griesa is an American judge. Plaintiffs are American. “Boo hoo” says Lickitoff. “Didn't work out the way I wanted. Hang on while I work up a 'law'. Not fair. We're being victimised” What's an argie 'law'? No relevance and no meaning. An argie 'law' is what the argie mafia says it is. Except for the argie 'judges' appointed by the argie 'government'.

    That's right Chris. The sad thing is if Argentina can't turn itself around and the usual suspects maintain control, then Argentina's neighbors can rest easy, although they may have to tighten up the border to stem the flow of economic refugees.

    “they may have to tighten up the border to stem the flow of economic refugees.”

    Too late, we already have more than 50,000 argie individuals seeking a cedula over the last two years.

    The so called government under “No Money Pepe” have been moaning about the pressure on the schools and other services because of this bunch of misfits.

    Don't know if Vasquez will slow them down: he already has too much on his plate with the disaster that is the economy.

    This story has nothing to do with Brazil. So why is it in the Brazilian section? Come on Mercopenguin. We all know that you are a British government run propaganda operation but, in order to have any credibility, you need to not act like a government operation. Lift your game!
