A good woman sent abroad to lie for her country ...

Argentina has said that the controversial advert showing one of their athletes for the London 2012 Games running up and down on a war memorial in the Falkland Islands and describing the Islands as "Argentine soil" was not designed to antagonise Britain.

The advertising agency that are responsible for the advert, Young & Rubicam, have asked the Argentinian government to pull it.

But the Argentine ambassador to Britain has defended the advert. When asked whether the advert was meant to provoke Britain, she replied: "I hope not, I really hope not, because this is not meant to be a provocation."

In the words of the Duke of Wellington, "If you will believe that you will believe anything."
