P&O Shuns Argentina

I'm glad to see that Southampton-based British cruise company P&O has decided to boycott Argentina for the duration of 2013. It will no longer dock in Buenos Aires, Puerto Madryn and Ushuaia (CLICK). This decision follows Argentinian threats that P&O would be denied access to these ports if it visits the Falkland Islands. Sour-faced propagandist El Presidente Cristina Fernández de Kirchner has been ramping up the pressure to claim the Falklands for her own, ahead of the Islanders' referendum on 11 March. Stuff democracy, says, Kirchner. Gimme the oil. Try as she might, she'll never be as popular as Eva Perón.
