Argentine vice president Amado Boudou criticised the involvement of British "territorial pirates" after a poll date of March 10-11 was announced by the Falkland Islands Government.
"A referendum in which the colonists will take part, the descendants of those who evicted the true inhabitants of those islands, means a disrespect to intelligence and to national and international law," Mr Boudou said on Sunday.
"No brand of pirates will get hold of the sovereignty and dignity of the Argentine Republic," added Mr Boudou, who ha been in charge of the executive during President Cristina Kirchner's trip to Asia.
Falkland Islanders go to the polls on March 10-11 when they are widely expected to affirm their desire to remain with Britain.
"Fernández was born in Ringuelet, a suburb west of La Plata, Province of Buenos Aires, daughter of Eduardo Fernández (of Spanish heritage) and Ofelia Esther Wilhelm (of German descent)."
So, in other words, the Falklanders have been in the Falklands longer than her relatives have been in Argentina. Perhaps she should give up her land (and her 20-something million dollar fortune that nobody knows where it came from).
