    The signing adds a new gesture of rapprochement between the two countries and was attended by representatives of the government of the Malvinas Islands, which make up the British delegation participating this week of the meeting of the Antarctic Treaty.(Perfil 18 May).

    As for Argentina's Antarctic claims....

    To believe that the territory claimed by Argentina in the Antarctic belongs to Argentina because of the inheritance is dubious.

    Macri: Hello, who is this?
    Betone: I am HRH Rosana Bertone, the Supreme Governor of Tierra Del Fuego, Staten Island, the Falklands, South Georgia, South Sandwich Islands and Antarctica.
    Macri: And?
    Bertone: Why was I not at this meeting with the English Antarctic Survey? I am in charge of all these areas.
    Macri: You don't represent the British.
    Bertone: I rule all the English colonial enclaves.
    Macri: Our country was adequately represented at the talks.
    Bertone: I did not give permission for the Falklanders to attend.
    Macri: Looks like they have taken no notice of you. By the way, I've heard that there are a couple of sheep wandering about in Port Jackson, so could you get on the next flight and sort it out? And I hear there is a street light not working, and some kerbstones need painting. And, as you are 'governor' could you please attend Liberation Day, and praise the British for ending that dreadful dictatorship?
    Bertone.P&%* ! P%£” ! P*^%!
    Macri: Hmmm, she's put the phone down.

    The question is why is this piece appearing in Mercopenguin, a British government propaganda organ supposedly devoted to America, South America and the “South Atlantic”?
