    I see no legitimate claim.

    Argentina’s Falklands claim is based on lies and misinformation .

    Abusing the pro tempore rotating chair of Mercosur to advance one country's loony ideas - why aren't I suprised.

    I feel certain that the other Mercosur members will be overly happy about the abuse, instead of doing the utmost to clinch the deal with EU.

    “ the so called “progressive flock”, now led by Alberto Fernandez and Cristina Kirchner, and which includes Venezuela and Nicaragua, and overseas Iran, Russia and Turkey.” “PROGRESSIVE”?? Are Venezuela and Iran really progressive countries? And what is a “progressive flock” really? When “googling” I found articles about sheep breeding. Could anyone explain?

    And why do the people care about these claims, or about how much money and energy Argentina spends on the matter?

    From what I see, Argentines simply ignore the wishes of the islanders and therefore avoid ranting about why “Falklanders don't want to be Argies.”

    So why don't the people of the Falkland Islands do the same? Just avoid ranting about any of such argie campaigning effort. Would Mercosur change anything?

    Publicly complaining  about what Argies do on a political level doesn't make any sense.

    Kelpers and Falklanders are the same thing, the former is just an Argie nickname for the latter.

    - Bennies and Kelpers are the same thing..., the former is just an Argie? nickname for the latter, based on the “Benny” simpleton from the popular “Crossroads” Argie? soap opera...

    - Stills and Kelpers are the same thing..., the former is just an Argie? nickname for the latter, derived from the prohibition to the Argie? troops of the use of the offensive “B” word... Therefore...: “Still” a Benny...

    - Falklanders and Kelpers..., on the other hand..., can indeed be to very diverse entities...
    Just ask ya friendly Kelper nextdoor...

    Argy speak for Falkland Islanders/Kelpers is “implanted population”.

    Which coming from the Indian murdering (Kurepi), Creole Conquistador, Danish Planter Bastard, squatting on Mapuche land in Patagonia, El Stink (AKA (in the Sagas) Nog Twat the Twat, idiot younger brother of Nogbad the Bad ) is laughable.
