Spain is digging its self in to a hole with its colonies off Marroco. As for the Argies, the UN recognise the right of self determination above all else.

Its all posturing.

Stop all flights to/from Spain and watch the economy go into freefall.

Bring it on,

Rearm the Old & Bold with that rifle.

Argentina first then Spain, business before pleasure.
Surely the Old & Bold with that rifle against Spain first.
After all the youngsters will have to wait for the new carriers to be built.
They can pick us up at Gib on the way past.
By that time we will have had enough R&R and have a good sun-tan.
Can we sort out the french on the way south or would that be considered mission-creep?

How should this viper's tongue of inadequacy, double standards and wishful thinking be known?
I know this is not the NAAFI but I do not think it unreasonable that this coallition of bellends should be refered to as 'The Axis of VVank' on the BBC, in fact as a licence payer I demand it.

Kirchner has screwed over Repsol shareholders after an orgy of raping foreign owned businesses since her parties term in office began and has finally realised the economic reality that they will need some foreign expertise and investment should they ever realise their dream of securing limited rights to exploit oil/gas reserves off Falkland/S.Georgia archipelago's.
Spain, with her politicians forming a queue to be indicted for corruption and criminal negligence; with nearly 30% of her under 25's unemployed and the remainder hunting jobs in her former colonies and the rest of Europe are coming up with mad crazy ideas right now...the best one is a proposal to CHARGE people and companies if they are stupid enough to produce renewable energy.....they must abide by the European Union directive of free movement; this is not like ignoring locals who drink heroic amounts and drive or groups of Spanish nationals smoking in bars and restaurants so they will lose the Gibraltar teddy throwing contest at Strasburg.
My solution is simple
Negotiate shared sovereignty with the Peoples Republic of China of the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, the British Antarctic Territories and Gibraltar.

China would bite the UK's hand off for such a deal and refinance CMD's government as well as backing full chat development of hydrocarbon exploration and processing/shipping facilities.

China would covet greatly a controlling position at the mouth of the Mediterranean with deep water porting facilities a few miles from Moroccan coast

Does anyone think that Spain or Argentina would do anything other than piss down their legs if they extend their arguments to Beijing?

Do the Argies have a Navy/Air Force/Army capable of re-taking the Falklands?
The Spanish need the UK as a trading partner more than the UK needs Spain?
Boycott Spain as a holiday destination and the country will go down the pan.

Send a Nuclear sub to both countries with orders to fire anything that leaves port!
Gun boat diplomacy at it's best!!!

I'd have thought that the Spanish Foreign Minister would've been more concerned with Repsol.

However as the article is from the Daily Mail, expect 2 + 2 = 5.

Is it wise, with two countries that are in dire financial state, taking on a country that isn't in recession and controls the worlds largest financial centre.

In a fantasy world, I'd like this to actually be true. We can counter with screwing Spain over financially. Spain goes and the Euro goes and then the EU.

the Grinaud is running the same story... Mail or Torygraph, i'd be suspicious, but the Grinaud has no end of commentators willing the UK to 'return' the FI to some tin-pot dump. if they are running with it, its 99% true.
