New UK Labour Leader Gives Hope to Argentines in Malvinas Dispute

simpsonsPresident Cristina Fernández de Kirchner may have clicked her heels when UK Labour member of parliament Jeremy Corbyn won the leadership of the Labour Party.

The British MP, who won a stunning landslide victory last week, has historically sided with engaging in talks with Argentina over the Malvinas sovereignty dispute.

“He actively supports the call of the international community for dialogue between the United Kingdom and Argentina in the Malvinas question,”

Cristina happily said.

“He has clearly spoken in favor of Argentina in the British Parliament regarding our struggle for human rights against the usurious interests of vulture funds,” she added.

Oh, Jeremy. Swoon.

Corbyn opposed the Malvina’s War in 1982 and has called for a “joint administration” between Argentina and the UK in resolving the Malvinas dispute. He also questioned the results of the referendum last year that saw a sweeping majority of islanders choose to remain part of the UK.

The Argentine head of state took to Twitter (obviously) to express her enthusiasm:

Argentina’s already got God on its side. Now it just needs the rest of the UK.
