  4. The Argentines will be rubbing their hands with glee and waiting for Osborne to decimate the forces in a few weeks time. Why risk their navy confronting our ships when our government will do their work for them?

  5. So true, so very true, so very, very true.

    Cameron and Osborne, aided and abetted by some admirals, are about to ensure that The Falkland Islands become Las Malvinas.

    Giving money to the European Soviet Union and abiding by every diktat issued by the unelected, unaccountable, unsackable rubbish consisting the European Soviet Union is all the current 'coalition gang of third rate twerps' are capable of doing!

    This country was well and truly f*cked by the Blair / Brown 'Terror' and now it is poised elegantly to be gang-raped by the Cameron / Clegg gang of clueless nancy boys.

    Aww, poor old Kirchner! Blanking all of the history of the Falkland Islands so she can call us colonial oppressors!? Soooo, Argentina invading the islands by force, against the will of the inhabitants wasn't colonial aggression then? It was Argentina that militarised the South Atlantic by sending an invading army into a place that didn't belong to them.

    Just curious, but does 'Kirchner' sound even remotely native Argentinian, or would that be a family name derived from the European colonial aggressors that still control South America, after they invaded it and massacred the indigenous peoples? Buenos Aires, Santa Rosa, Mercedes, Rosario, Rio Grande . . . . . as place-names go, well, the sound pretty ****ing Latin to me, and I'm sure the indigenous people of South America are not Spanish, Latin or anything else related to the 'Conquistadores'.

    Perhaps Ms Kirchner could tweet us a correction, or maybe she and her forebears would consider ****ing off back to the European mainland and leave South America to the people she and her ancestors stole it from.

    Edited to add: France (which apparently we have no claim to anymore) is a mere 26 miles away from the UK mainland. It's so close that people swim there on a semi-regular basis, and yet neither the British no the French are in the business of saying that either part belongs to the other, DESPITE a long history of it changing hands and wars being fought over said ownership . . . . .

    The Falkland Islands are over 400 miles away from Argentina, or 15 times the distance from Britain to France. Perhaps the Argentinians would like to lay claim to the North Pole too? It's about as valid.
