The price of penguins

BBC: UK sent nuclear sub near Falklands, says Argentina
Argentina's foreign minister has accused the UK of sending a nuclear-armed submarine to the South Atlantic, after making an official complaint to the UN over the Falklands dispute.

This one has manufactured Olympics boycott written all over it. Remember, you heard it here first.

Incidentally, have you noticed how every time the BBC reports on the Falkland Islands, it feels compelled to explain that they are known in Argentina as the Malvinas? What's that got to do with the price of penguins? Whenever they mention Germany, they don't feel the need to explain that the country is known in France as l'Allemagne.
