    Who actually cares....more conspiracy theories. You have peddled this one before.

    Has the title anything to do with Argentina ?

    @1 I don't click links but I assume it refers to who Shakespeare really was? This is a well discussed topic because the truth is no one really knows. There is considerable evidence to confirm his existence but records in Elizabethan England were questionable, unreliable and acceptable spelling loose - even Shakespeare wrote his name five different ways. So, we don't know everything about the Englishman (or was it a woman?) who penned this extraordinary collection of outstanding classics revered throughout the cultured world. But we do know they endure and are much loved and admired.

    Are you jealous?

    Another puff piece on Mercopeguin, a British government run propaganda site. Is this what the British government considers news about Mercosul?

    @6 There is no doubt that Shakespeare was an unashamed propagandist for the Tudor dynasty but I doubt that has much relevance in modern day Chile.

    If it WAS run by the British government then we could expect non-stop articles about corruption and down -right lying by the Kirchner government. The site is in ENGLISH so it is not aimed at Spanish speakers. Why do you and the rest of your bigoted Trolls bother with the site. It would probably collapse if your bunch ignored it.

    If it was presented at the Globe theatre by this cast, then it must have merit.
    Fame is not synonymous with great acting.
    Using your standards then every actor in Argentina must be crap because I have never heard of them.
    What would YOU know about culture considering your limited understanding of the English language except for the use of adolescent profanities.
    I notice you have been kicked into touch 3 times by the administrator---that has been the height of your contributions to the forum thus far.

    In South America no one knows who are that citizen. Your language is prolific and difficult to understand for English, let alone us who barely know English.

    “Using your standards then every actor in Argentina must be crap because I have never heard of them.”

    the problem, grandpa, is that you have never heard of them or of anybody because you have senile deafness.
