    What no public holiday on the glorious 14th June? Fancy having a holiday to celebrate the sending of some 655 armed forces personnel to their deaths, Weird don't you think?

    They can't figure out whether to call the 14th of June “Argentine Leadership Day” or “The Final Loss of All Hope Forever in Stealing the Neighbours' Islands.” There are also proposals to call it “Theft of the Islands Will Always be 25 Years in the Future Day,” “Glorious National Serial Default Day,” and “Let's All Learn to Speak the Language of Our Chinese Masters Day.”

    How about “Bigga Mistaka Day”?… perhaps “Michael Fish Day”?

    Marti again doing what he does best: sucking to the British.
    Typical of those afflicted of acute inferiority complex that leads them to side with whoever they perceive as stronger or wealthier.
    As the Beatles sang: Nowhere man.

    Thanks so much for providing this, Kamerad/Komrade Rique. Next time you try to run for office in Canada, this will of course be provided to the appropriate publications, Gusano. Bummer, eh?
