    Don't you just love these two pictures?

    Ninny Novoa in the first looks utterly pissed off, the body language is a hoot.

    And as for the Brazil Nut in the second he looks ready to chuck Ninny into the foul Olympics bay and be done with him.

    Diplomacy in LatAm is like a Shakespearian comedy without the intellectual bits!

    (El Pais) The latest news from the children who rule us summarises their will to be a first world country whilst being run by murdering commies: they are going to buy a PRESIDENTIAL AIRPLANE!

    Including my wife and I who were counted in the 2011 census there are 3,286,314 men, women and children in the country, less than a third of the number in Greater London.

    We also have 600,000 public workers (counting government 'businesses') and 1.4M stinking poor who pocket the money for doing nothing that 'No Money Pepe' set up when he was the president.

    So we have 1,286,314 maximum workers (less their children) who actually fund the country with their taxes, licence fees and all the other fiscal drag the 'children' have thought up since being 'in power'.

    It's like something from Monty Python.
