    Whether they were sublime or not is irrelevant. Lots of things are sublime, but not really worthy of inclusion.

    Perhaps I can root around for the Argentinian zeitgeist and provide you with a few amusing examples, from "popular" opinion in Argentina, of how stupid your lot are?

    This is why I try to keep well away Reading those things may induce temporay euphoria, and a feeling of manifest superiority and confidence in your own abilities, but it quickly becomes addictive and you need a bigger and bigger dose to get the same effect, or any effect at all, while the side effects gnaw away at you, rotting your health and psyche. Much like Crystal Meth in fact. The comparison is not lightly chosen

    I would find it funny. I do the same thing with the argentinean moral outrages.

    Not much point doing it here though, because few people speak Spanish or know the issues involved.

    I'll translate some argentinean ones for you sometime and then we can submit them to a poll.

    Thanks for helping me out with Spanish. Quite obviously I don't speak the lingo.

    ^^^It's a shame. there is a great parody of right-wing radio news programmes by an argentinean comedian.

    He introduces one show (in standard cheerful newsreader voice) with "here we are with all the news about all those things which you cannot solve and which it is beyond you to change, but which will rot your brain like an informative gangrene, which will wear out your mind and bring you down, unnerve you, and plunge you into the deepest depression, which will murder you slowly, all because you were born in this shitty country. So it's 7.27 am" </cuts to jingle>.

    Well you get the idea.

    anyway I don't "mock Britain" as an outsider. I grew up here, went to school, uni, work here. I have a London culture and speak in a Landan accent (maybe that explains a lot!). I just try to deal with this nightamrish "ConDem" reality through a bit of humour now and again.

    Saddest thing is of course that 99% of the Express readers are on the recieving end of the attacks anyway and are the ones losing their jobs, pensions, homes and wages.

    I think that sounds like all newscasters.

    Somehow I'm reminded of the Weekly World News... which is my favorite tabloid to stare at in horror while standing in the supermarket checkout line
