‘Why does Argentina think Cameron reads the Guardian?’ asks everyone

The economic crisis in Argentina has taken a turn for the worse, after their entire military budget was wasted on an advert in a national newspaper.

But instead of placing the ad in the Telegraph, Times or the Beano, the campaign was accidentally printed in the Guardian.

“Argentina really fancies having some wind-swept, oil-drenched islands in the middle of the Atlantic”, complained president Cristina de Kirchner.

“So we thought we’d spend a modest amount on an ad in the ‘wanted’ section of the classifieds.”

Unfortunately, my diplomats were no match for their 17 year-old salesman, who promised David Cameron ‘would definitely see it’, and ‘be on the blower, quick as winking.”

1. I think

She doesn't know her left or right. Well, if she posted it to the Telegraph, the letter would have been edited to embarrassed her.

3. Falklands row: Sun places advert in Argentina newspaper

The Sun newspaper has taken out an advert in an English-language paper in Argentina defending Britain's sovereignty of the Falkland Islands.

The advert is a response to an open letter from the Argentine president, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, which was printed in two British papers.

4. Argentinians Burn Sun In Row Over Falklands

Argentinian protesters have burned The Sun and Union Jack in Buenos Aires as Falkland Islanders wrote an open letter to the country's president.

Copies of the newspaper advert and the flag were torched at a cruise terminal in the capital after British Prime Minister David Cameron rejected calls for talks on the disputed territory.

A group of the islanders, called Falklands United, responded on Friday to a letter by Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner published in The Guardian and Independent in which she called for the UK to give up the Falklands.

They wrote: "Our home is a British Overseas Territory, not a colony as you seemingly wish to convince people.

Keep this lark up and maybe Private Eye will post the one they suggested all those years ago.
