    Come'on people. He deserved the appointment just based on his hair. Spectacular!!
    (Plus a cantaloupe had more brains than Cecilia Nahón).

    Cecilia 'resigned' did she? More likely she was fired for being completely useless.

    “Montenegro was born in Mar del Plata in 1862 and is an attorney from Buenos Aires University Law School.”

    Most experienced ambassador ever appointed.

    A wealth of knowledge, over 153 years old and still going strong, but a bit long in the tooth even by Argentine standards

    Yep, proffreading is non existant onMercopress. Gives us a laugh though.

    Glad Macri is choosing a great team and many Argentines are already proud of our future leader. What a breath of fresh air after the nasty old hag.

    CFK must be blowing steam out of her ears...probably wishes she had suicided Macri instead of Nisman.

    @6 Argentina is in danger of having a government that appoints people we can't ridicule because they may know what they are talking about!

    Montenegro is an attorney as opposed to CFK who 'claimed she was a lawyer.

    Even if the Brits can't always agree with Argentina, it is a positive sign that Macri appears to appoint people in political/ambassadorial posts that can be respected.
    And Argentina now realise that there have been problems with Uruguay as opposed to CFK who maintained everyone was the best of mates/ we exhibit South American unity etc etc.

    When the two countries have to go to the ICJ, it was blindingly obvious there were problems.

    If you accept a problem exists then it is more likely to be fixed.

    He is very well respected in the Int'l banks in DC. Young, smart and good looking he'll fit right in DC.

    He should immediately fumigate the embassy. At least he knows the showers have never been used. So glad that gross filthy commie Cecelia is gone. She barely spoke English and looked as dirty as a street dog. Just like the rest of the kthugs.

    Yes perhaps Argentina will stop bullying Uruguay as if we were a rebel province.
    What I would like to see:
    1. Publication of the pollution figures of the Rio Uruguay which Argentina has consistently blocked.
    2.The deepening of the Martin Garcia channel
    3. Reinstate the free transfer of shipments through Uruguayan ports
    4.remove the restrictions on barge traffic from Paraguay to our ports
    5. permit the reestablistablishment of the traditional links between Uruguay and the Falklands as typified by the old Link of the Darwin though this time with a weekly direct flight.
    well it would be a start anyway.

    Re Lousteau - He is NOT a graduate of THE SCOTTISH UNIVERSITY OF ST ANDREWS but IS a graduate of the Argentine Universidad de San Andrés.

    Does this mean that Alicia Castro will be kicked out ? how terrible, she'll have to abandon the good life in London and return to Buenos Aires.....but that's OK, she'll be closer to her mentor, CFK.

    @4 ...ASS the size of a planet

    Your ASS is obscuring some of the Buenos Aires University Law School. I guess this is an improvement over a previous thread where it obscured half of Argentina.

    Been on a diet?

    Doesn't CFK realize all of these shannigans she's doing now can easily be undone by Macri?
    She really is a terrible person.

    I hope she rots in jail.

    “I see Enrique is conspicuous by his absence...”
    So cute of you to be missing me.
    I'm just amusing myself reading the overjoyed--some revengeful--postings here.
    No use to argue about what might happen in the future. It will come soon enough.

    Almost 1/2 Billion U$ over the last few days has been spent trying to keep the peso under 15.

    These people aren't just stupid
    They're criminal.

    I can't wait for the indictments to start....

    18 Enrique,

    While you are at it, please give us your ringing endorsement of CFK clearing out the treasury and appointing all her party faithful and pals to lucrative sinecures.

    Saw Derke 30 minutes ago. He gave me some smoked salmon for Christmas, and a Falklands Islands Team hockey jersey - very nice of him.

    I hope winter is not too severe for you in Alberta.

    Hairball is a lefty. He's a pariah as soon as he arrives just like the rest of the banana republic mouthpieces. He won't be any more welcomed by obamy than he will be by Cruz.
