in case anybody wants to hear this (again)? it is being rerun on BBC Parliament tomorrow (3rd) at 1900. back in the days before they allowed cameras into the HoC.

there's also available via HANSARD, the full transcript of it here: Falkland Islands (Hansard, 3 April 1982)

(mods, if this is in the wrong forum would one of you be so kind as to move it to the correct one? cheers)

Thanks for the tip.

I think the debate was on a Saturday and was interesting not least because the arch leftie, Michael Foot gave a cracking speech in total support of Thatcher.

Possibly the only time that Foot sounded like a Statesman.
