Penguin v Argentina

With tensions between Britain and Argentina over the Falkland Isles hotting up,the Island's paper has hardly helped to defuse the situation.

Penguin News ,in an article reporting that Argentinian President Cristina Kirchner was going to complain to the United Nations about what she saw as Britain's "militarisation" of the South Atlantic,the newspaper called her a bitch.

 Reaction on the South American mainland has,as you can imagine,not been muted with the Daily carrying an image of Kirchner that accompanied the Penguin News article online given the filename "bitch" when people tried to download it.

The caption has since been modified simply to "Kirchner" but not too late for the twiiterati to launch into the debate
