    Oh no! The British are militarising the South Atlantic by sending a 65 year old woman to have a look around!!!! Whatever will Argentina do?

    Oh, Mercopress editor, hate to be picky, especially after you took so many pains to remove the 'Prince' Anne story, but you got the year of her birth wrong.

    Princess Anne was born on the 15 August 1950, not 1959.

    Now THERES someone with a sweet deal.

    A mere fraction of the responsibilities and public attention, and all you can eat at the workers expense.

    All the pro's and minimal cons.

    Return to your work station immediately.
