    Rodriguez Larreta
    could well be the future president of a future independent Buenos Aires City
    and why not, Argentina will break into abt 4 or 5 independent states,

    and he has a good chance of getting UDI and a future independent state

    just like Cordoba

    anything's poss., nowadays in Argentina.

    Where do you get that from? Having more wet dreams as of late?
    BA would be nothing without the riches coming from the provinces.

    Yes!! Macri is just another junkie. I certainly envision “Lousteau 2019”

    This is really funny, Briton supports Larreta. Paul calls the rest “stooges”. Then Briton comes back and calls everybody else “stooges”. Not a single clever argument from the both of you.

    Briton supports no one,

    one if one feel the UK should break up,
    then one must understand that eye think Argentina should break up,

    seems fair to me.

    the rest is history lol.

    But not by living next to them, that's toooo close.
