Argies claim the Falklands - yet again

#2
The IOC won't let them. They're very strict about political demonstrations at the Olympics. IIRC, the Americans wanted to carry a tattered flag from ground zero during the opening ceremony a few years ago but they were not allowed.

Edited to add:-

Perhaps some new events could be added to placate our Latin American chums-

Swim For Your Life (Raft)
The swimmers line up as usual but instead of firing a starting pistol, the time keeper explodes a Mk 8 torpedo. As the surviving swimmers hit the water, a load of life rafts are inflated in the deep end. Last one doesn't get an immersion suit and dies of hypothermia.


Run For Your Life
Like the relay race with 2 Arg and 2 Para in each team. The objective is not to let the Brits catch up with you.


Looooooooong Jump
Similar to the existing event except the pit is full of water instead of sand. Also it's 200 miles long. You jump from one end and Sharkey Ward shoots at you while you are in flight.


"Moral Victory" Gymnastics
Hands to be kept above head at all times.

Tommy Smith and John Carlos were banned after their Black Power salutes in 1968. And they won Gold and Bronze respectively in the 200m. Can't imagine a load of no-hopers from the arse-end of civilization being allowed to loll around making the place look untidy with their hand-written t-shirts and bad attitudes.

It'd be a bugger to fit on a sporting uniform:

"The Falklands were briefly occupied by Argentina while the British were busy elsewhere and when push comes to shove, we got our collective arses handed to us"

Probably wouldn't look that good on a water polo cap or running vest.

Perhaps a banner?

Or why bother, let them turn up with their new national flag, white, plain white and replace the frogs as cheese eating surrendering monkeys??

Fair play to the Argies, they do make half decent wine. Allegedly.
 
#14
Can I ask how we're going to stop them doing this? We don't have the aircraft carrier or long range strike capability and are far too busy elsewhere!


Oh sorry wrong thread about the Falklands.

Tell you what, we know there's more chance of Derek Acorah channelling Robin Cook for a special one-off during the next session of parliament. Why don't we charge them the maximum price for printing those shirts and make money off it. Thanks to them the Falklands became profitable again. Could be worth a shot..hard times and all.

Not after the last time they won't. Just to show how much we appreciate them coming all this way, I think the Para's, Bootnecks, Welsh Guards, Gurkhas and all the other units who are associated with the Falklands campaign should be given complimentary tickets to all the events the Argentinians are participating in. Let's have the RAF and the Fleet Air Arm do a flyover over the olympic stadium twice a day in Typhoons, Apaches and Sea kings etc and get a destroyer on the thames at the nearest point to the stadium and have it sound it's foghorn a couple of times a day. **** it. Make them feel really welcome!

Throw in a tour of historical Lincoln for good measures being sure they drive slowly past 607 standing proudly at the gates of RAF Waddington . I'll drive the bus .
