The new Argentinian 50 peso banknote depicting the Falkland Islands was yesterday branded a "stunt" by a British minister.
"On the issue of the 50 peso bank note, we cannot stop the Argentinian government doing these stunts," said Hugo Swire, a minister of state at the British Foreign Office, when asked about the note in parliament on Tuesday.
"It's worth a whopping £3.72 [$6] according to today's exchange rate," noted Swire. "And I think it probably has the equivalent political value."
