    Could we maybe start to see the breakup of Argentina. Just as they did from spain all those years ago today internal unrest has started a similar idea to that of how Argentina started.

    It’s a delightful proposition, but 98% of the Argentine population still think they are the center of the universe. This is a political stunt...

    All the best!
