    When will we see Annibal on trial for the allegations that he is a mafia kingpin in the illegal ephedrine trade?
    It's already been on tv in Argentina. How is it that Argentine politicians exist with such impunity?
    What is happening about the VP? That's gone quiet.
    Why do Argentines allow themselves to be governed by such an obvious bunch of crooks?

    Excellent translation from the low level jibber jabber used in TDC!

    Or does Anibal The Cannibal, alias Bogbrush, talk like this: it wouldn't surprise me.

    I loved the cartoon in Clarin of TMBOA with a bogbrush under her nose complete with the hooded eyes. The article claimed she was covering his arse over the ephedrine claims.

    TMBOA should consider this a trial run for her trial for treason and theft.

    Ilsen's question: ”When will we see Annibal (sic) on trial for the allegations that he is a mafia kingpin in the illegal ephedrine trade?“
    Answer: Few people in Argentina--not even the opposition--take seriously the latest ”denunciation“ of the Clarín group just a week before the PASO election.
    Also: come on people. Have you ever read the qualifier: ”allegations not proven in a court of law?”
    It´s a show of crass ignorance to rush to convict people before due trial.

    It's fair game to comment on investigations, allegations against, politicians who are implicated in government cover ups of corruption and possibly corrupt themselves.

    It's in the Public interest and a duty of the government to ensure their politicians are above reproach and above suspicion.

    Perhaps Anibal should be suspended until he is absolved of any criminal involvement.

    Let me guess......you queried this via emails and skype to those IN Argentina.......because you are not. This is where you post like a man with a paper asshole. Keep pissing in the wind.......you're starting to smell.

    How would YOU know, Enrique?

    do you talk to people on the street, in argentina?

    I see no defamation or libel charges against Clarin - I guess it would bring unwanted publicity to confront them...!

    I believe that an Argie on here told us that there is no law governing “ libel or slander ” in Argentina, so you can say what you like. Here in the UK if there is a whiff of a scandal that could embarrass the government it is usual for the minister to resign, that is pretty standard stuff.
