This cartoon by Blower from The Daily Telegraph relates to the open letter sent by Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, the Argentine president, to UK Prime Minister David Cameron this week inviting him to “abide by the resolutions of the United Nations”, and to negotiate a settlement over the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands (or Las Malvinas, as they are known in Argentina).
The cartoon shows President Kirchner writing her letter in green ink (is that significant?). Meanwhile, outside the presidential palace, a demonstration is taking place with people waving placards to protest about corruption and economic problems.
The message of the cartoon is clear: President Kirchner is using the Falklands issue as a means of distracting attention from Argentina's domestic problems.
The cartoon caption 'Disgusted of Buenos Aires' is a reference to the phrase Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells, a proverbial sign-off-name in the United Kingdom for a letter to a newspaper complaining (often excessively) about a subject that the writer feels is unacceptable, usually with strongly conservative political views.
