'I want to leave': Interview with minister goes viral
Argentina's Economy Minister has become the talk of Twitter in the South American country after a video of him trying to leave an interview when asked about inflation went viral.

In the recording, Hernan Lorenzino repeatedly refuses to answer questions about Argentina's real inflation rate. He then tells the Greek television crew he doesn't know the answer before trying to end the interview by saying" I want to leave".

"I have a very simple question for you, which seems very complicated these days: How much is Argentine inflation at this moment?" the female interviewer asked.

"Official statistics show month after month the inflation and this is the only inflation possible," the minister responded in Spanish.

"But, how much is it?" she insisted.

Increasingly uncomfortable, Mr Lorenzino said: "I think the cumulative inflation over the last 12 months is 10.2pc; I might be off by a decimal."

The journalist then noted that the IMF has warned that it will impose sanctions against Argentina for putting out false statistics. "What will you do about that?"

"I don't know, I don't know. Can we turn off the camera a moment? I want to leave," Mr Lorenzino said.

Off camera, Mr Lorenzino can also be heard to say: “Talking about inflation statistics in Argentina is complex.”

The video was posted online and quickly went viral on Thursday, with the hastag mequieroir (Iwanttoleave) generating a lot of comments on Twitter. The film of the visibly uncomfortable minister was also played repeatedly on news stations that are not aligned with the government.

In February the International Monetary Fund hit Argentina with a censure for failing to supply accurate economic data, the first time the global crisis lender has taken such an action against a member.
