Sport and Politics, Argentina Pokes at the UK

What was that I was just saying about sport and politics being inseparable?

Check out the video above from the Argentinean government. See also CNN.


  1. Difference between Argentina and the UK is he can film that jingoistic nonsense on British soil. If a Brit tried the equivalent in Argentina, he'd be beaten senseless.

    Given the Argie history with England, between their thuggish behavior in the 1966 World Cup, and the 'hand of God' cheat, it's a testimony to the tolerance of the British that they're unlikely even to be booed.

  2. Wow! That is pretty blatant! But somehow I'm not at all surprised Argentina would do that...
