Argentine elected members to the Mercosur parliament, Parlasur will not have immunity from imprisonment, according to a ruling from the country's Electoral Chamber. This means those Argentine candidates elected to the regional parliament on 25 October will only have immunity for their opinions while exercising their posts. Read full article

    Wasn't TMBOA going to take a Parlasur position to continue her immunity from prosecution for all the robbing, lying, court rigging and muddlers she was responsible for during her laughingly called “presidency”?

    Oh dear! Whatever will she do now?

    Move to Ecuador, before she has to take refuge in an Ecuadorian embassy somewhere.

    “Wasn't TMBOA going to take a Parlasur position to continue her immunity from prosecution for all the robbing, lying, court rigging and muddlers”...and blah, blah?
    Cristina has long announced she is not up for any position in the upcoming election.
    Chris and the rest coming down the list but Elaine: Do some research before showing so much ignorance and bad faith.

    Oh dear, do you not remember when TMBOA stated she would never take a third presidency term: and then we had the rush from the K's arsehole creepers clamouring for her to do exactly that?

    And her response? Of course she would if the “public” demanded it, only to have her hopes dashed by the squabbling of the political elite.

    Do some thinking before you make yourself look an even more pathetic creature than you already are. Or better still go back to The Dark Country and learn a thing or two first hand: oh, you can't go back, can you?

    Now Chris you are a sad character, barking from afar at somebody who has put mind and body to the service of an entire country.
    What's next? Tell us Cristina once beat some classmate when in grade 3?
    Come on. Acknowledge you were wrong and then move on instead of trying to make an impossible case.

    Ohhh! I see I touched a nerve then?

    “ barking from afar”, how do you make that out given that I am 150Km from the pink whorehouse and you live where? Canada, yes, that's it!

    The stupid, stupid decisions on the economy by TMBOA has, and is still, effecting Uruguay. Not only that but the Bitch hasn't paid a U$D towards the electricity facturas that No Money Pepe arranged whgen TDC and BsAs especially was flooded out and some prat managed to blow up a primary transformer in one of the biggest power stations (something I have never seen before in decades of experience in the UK).

    As for being a sad character, I'm the one laughing at your idiocy and cowardice, hiding in Canada when your 'country' needs another idiot so badly.

    “a bill approved last December with Kirchner and allies votes”

    Now why would legislators pursue immunity for themselves?

    How, in a democracy, can people be above the law?

    What does seeking “yet further” immunity tell an intelligent person about those legislators?

    @8. How about a new “proposal”? Kirchner publicly cuts her throat or is garrotted. Maximo loses the top of his skull to prove there was nothing in there anyway.

    Twinky get shot through the eye.

    “and the Bitch...hasn't paid the electricity.”
    So you berate Cristina because she was looking to get elected to the Parlasur so she could be protected from lawsuits.
    Next I mention that Cristina has long stated she will be not be looking at ANY elected position, you depart in all directions and end up with grabbing the supreme argument, which is...(Stop the presses!!)...CFK hasn't paid a power bill to Uruguay!
    OMG! How Macri not did not think of this?
    If he loses the election, he'll have no one to blame but himself for not consulting with ChrisR.
    Chris would have taught Macri to use strong political arguments peppered with a few filthy words, in hopes they stick.
    You have a future there, Chris!

    What do you think of the ruling in this article? Do you support legislative immunity?

    What kinds of immunity protections was the legislature in Argentina seeking?

    I cannot understand why you never say anything about the country you live in, Canada, isn't it?

    Doesn't Canada have a real Head of State in the form of HM Queen Elizabeth II and all the protection that that entails?

    Feel nice and safe there? People pay their debts there? I bet they do.

    Now you numbnut, contrast that with Uruguay (pop 3.3M) and Argentina (The Dark Country TDC) (pop 40M+); why should UYU support BsAs with free electricity when Uruguayos pay the highest rate for their electricity in SA?

    Or are you proud to be the offspring of crooks, thieves and murderers whilst hiding in fear of your life that somebody is going to 'come and get you'?

    Pathetic creature.

    Chris boy:
    I have plenty of things to say. When MP publishes a story about Canada it will be my pleasure to comment--if I feel like it of course.

    Chris why would he bite the hand that feeds him? Canada is the best thing that ever happened to his old and meaningless life. I only hope Canada does not allow him to be buried there. But then again, someone will need to piss on his grave for being such a pussy to return to the country of which he incorrectly thinks is doing so well.
    He should at least be like Stink and pretend he lives in Argentina. But that would catch up with him as well.
