    Sometimes former leaders should just retire quietly.

    Hear hear!

    Mujica says,
    “From the bottom of my heart I wish him well... ”

    And then in the same breath, he questions the legitimacy of Macri's Presidency!!
    ”Mujica then said that the final vote count was very close and tight, and “I believe media have been too quick in jumping into conclusions about Macri's victory”.

    ”The fellow (Macri) is not in office yet, he still has to name his ministers, let's wait a little before announcing conclusions”

    and then goes on to say, in the same speech, that Maduro is committing no oppression by locking up the opposition candidates...

    Yeah, we know what Pepe is all about!!

    'No Money Pepe' and his harridan of a wife La Tronca (the trunk / log), a marriage made in hell (if it ever existed) and meant for one another.

    Yeah, like anybody with half-a-brain is going to take notice of this pair of twats.

    Whether they like it or not Macri won and he alone is now responsible for the fate of Argentina. Perhaps these two losers didn't like the fact despite them both canvassing for TMBOA in Argentina.

    I really hope that before I croak (11 years with a bit of luck) I see somebody with a brain as the President of Uruguay. Vasquez has one but is stymied by this malevolent pair in the senate. And they are supposed to be on the same side! So much for them looking after the people.

    ”if things work out for Argentina, this favors Uruguay, but when things go wrong, they end up bashing us on this side of the River”.

    No Money Pepe thinks that Argentina taking Uruguay to the ICJ over the Finnish Mill (under CFK) is a great act of friendship, yet despite the Falkland Islanders being CFK's sworn enemy, no ICJ for the UK?

    Still, he does smoke weed, does he not?

    “Mujica also admitted having several clashes with president Cristina Fernandez, but emphatically denied ”she is an enemy”

    So she's a friend then?

    According to South American logic, if Macri is as cooperative as he says he will be, and chooses to build bridges rather than employ CFK's policy of dynamiting them, then he's an enemy of Uruguay?

    Do these people live in an alternative and opposite universe?

    CFK hasn't even stepped down yet, and Pepe is slagging Macri, and Maduro is lining up to take his turn.

    What's going on at the Bank of Santa Cruz?

    Are the K's getting a little nervous?

    Are they going overseas to celebrate Thanksgiving? Permanently?

    Cannoli getting a little antsy?

    Elvis thinking about disappearing?

    @6 chronic

    I expect that Venzla is out now ... went too far on that one and plunged it into chaos and instability.

    To borrow a phrase from Malvinistas, “it's a doomed enclave”

    Havana ?

    How long can the Castros last?

    The Americans are there already, and the opportunity for Cubans in power to make some really big money, will push CFK to the sidelines - as an unwanted liability.

    I see it now - The Queen of Bolivia!!
