Part of Antarctica named 'Queen Elizabeth Land' as gift for Diamond Jubilee

Part of Antarctica has been named after the Queen as a Diamond Jubilee gift from the Foreign Office. Queen Elizabeth Land is a 169,000 square mile chunk of the British Antarctic Territory. It is twice the size of the UK and makes up almost a third of Britain’s claim on the polar continent.

I don't suppose one is allowed to conduct oil and gas exploration on the Antarctic continent because of the danger to wildlife, etc. but it would be a massive thumb in the eye to the Argies if a rich field of oil and gas was found. Kirchner would be simply frothing at the mouth. :p :p :p

I can see it now. Establish a good sized BAS base there and then make a claim for sovereignty of Argentina. The games afoot!

Great news your Ma'am! You are now ruler of a million penguins and an unlimited supply of snowballs.
the next step would be to declare it a tax haven then invite santa to relocate.
