Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner: ‘Sexy like Evita, hard likeThatcher and with eyes on the Falklands’
January 21, 2012
An analysis of the President of Argentina, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner published on The Sun.
“Argentina President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has more makeup than Katie Price, never leaves home without high heels and owns at least 200 black dresses” the news paper said.
“But Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner’s WAG-like image hides a ruthless politician”.
“And this steely, unflinching leader has set her heart on reclaiming the Falklands — setting her on a collision course with Britain”.
“Ironically, such determination has brought comparisons to Margaret Thatcher, who sent our forces to war to win back the islands after an Argentinian invasion in 1982”.
“But Cristina’s own role model is quite different. Her inspiration is Argentina’s national heroine, the glamorous champion of the working classes and labour rights activist Eva Peron — known as Evita”.
“And Cristina is determined that her own part in her country’s history will rival that of the tragic First Lady, whose story was told in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Seventies musical.”
“So she has taken up the fight for the Falklands — and the battle against Britain.
David Cameron is so concerned with her fighting talk that he has dusted off war plans to defend the islands, as reported in yesterday’s Sun. He seems right to be worried.”
