    No disrespect to these fools,
    but do they not understand, that the more you offers greedy corrupt territory grabbing thugs, the more they will want,

    two these businesses its just business
    but to argies, its just another reason to claim sovereignty.,

    No trade until the give up this false claim.

    Going to the U.K. will provide temporary relief to some Macri government officials by stepping out of a stressful climate in their home country, where the main labour union confederation (CGT) has announced for April 6 its first general strike since the government assumed 15 months ago.

    Other union confederations, the CTA and CTAA, will join the general strike and have also declared their own strike and march to Plaza de Mayo on March 30.

    Meanwhile, a serious conflict between teachers and government across the country continues while negotiations fail to find resolution.

    Need to take a look at the beginning of the last century and ask “Why?”

    @RL Why? Because the majority voted for Brexit and we need trade agreements in places like Argentina as a priority. We don't know how punitive the EU countries will be (hopefully they will take the emotion out of it and trade) so we have to look to countries outside the EU. Also, that Macri is trying to transform the Argentine economy to be trade friendly will be an incentive. The UK government is prepared to underwrite the risk because we are foolishly abandoning our huge trading partner.

    EB Why do you think the EU will be punitive, it is also in their interests to have a good trade agreement with the UK,you obviously voted to remain. Agreed that the “ COMMON MARKET ” was something to be in but over the years we have SOLD our soul to the EU. Why on earth would we want to be part of a group that in all the years they have not audited their accounts.

    @ golfcronie

    You are right in that they SHOULD enter into new trade agreements with the UK. However, Juncker this week said something along the lines that they will punish the UK for leaving so no other country will follow suit. You cannot assume good sense.

    Again, I totally agree the EU needed reform. That does not mean we will be better off not being part of the large trading block and all the benefits that afforded us, not to mention the longest period of peace. All this 'sold out souls' is Daily Mail scaremongering. IMO There is no way we are going to be able to be out of the EU and have the same, or better, trade agreements. If we don't make trade agreements elsewhere we are still putting all our eggs in the EU's basket.

    A madman in the White House and a broken Europe. Putin must be laughing his socks off.

    The Mayor of Luxembourg City has proved to be a bit of a madman too. How on earth this fool was appointed is a mystery only exceeded by the appointment of Boris?

    We will punish the UK by forbidding the sales of BMW and Mercs., all Spanish fruit and veg.
    French wines, Italian wines and food, refusing to allow Spanish trawlers to fish in UK waters.
    Seems like a good deal for them.

    The last time any Junckers tangled with the UK they were wiped out of the sky.

    The man can see himself as the president of the United States of Europe with Germany in the lead role. No thanks !

    I think you believe our power to be far beyond the reality. Alone in this unsettled world leaves us vulnerable.

    Roll over? What are you talking about. We are entering negotiations and will get the best deal we can but we don't hold the aces. 1 vs. 28.

    “The last time any Junckers tangled with the UK they were wiped out of the sky.”

    Can you explain this because I don't recall us wiping anyone out of the sky.

    They can moan , cry , threaten , insult , abuse , or jusr run away,
    but make no mistake,

    a deal will be done,
    why ?
    because its in all our interest to do so,
    this is nothing but political clap trap.

    Read your history of the Air War in WW2

    It's one of the few subjects on which I have more than a general knowledge.

    Two of the Luftwaffe's main attack aircraft were the Junkers 87 Sturzkampfflugzeug aka STUKA and the Junkers 88.

    The Stukas were so badly mauled by the RAF that they were withdrawn from “Adler Angriff”..

    The Ju 88' s although much better machines still fared badly against the RAF's fighters.

    I specifically said JUNKERS. The bf 109 and later the Focke Wulf 190 were a different proposition. By the latter stages of the war, the Luftwaffe was a spent force.
