Summers wins Falklands MLA seat: favours strong response to Argentina and north-south links

Former member of the Falkland Islands Legislative Assembly, Mike Summers has been voted back into the government by a substantial margin. Voting took place in Stanley on Thursday in a by-election, which saw 51% of the electorate going to the polls.

Summers heard the news on a ferry to the Isle of Wight as head of the Falklands sports delegation

Mike Summers, who served 13 years as Councillor until 2009, gained 259 of the 676 unspoilt votes cast, which is more than 38.3%.

The former councillor heard the news late on Thursday night as he was arriving by ferry onto the Isle of Wight for the NatWest Island Games as head of the Falklands’ delegation.

“I’m delighted and pleased to be back in government of the Islands”. Regarding his clear lead over the other candidates he said that he suspects the voting reflected the electorate’s concerns over the current situation with Argentina and felt that this may have been “a vote for common sense and experience”. He added that “I can bring some experience to add to the team’s work in countering Argentine claims”

Summers was unable to confirm whether he would be taking on the Agriculture portfolio which had been held by Glenn Ross, the man he replaced on the assembly, saying only that he would need to talk to colleagues upon his return to the Islands.

In his electoral manifesto Summers said that the Argentine Government “is as aggressive as it has been for many years; we risk losing ground in both political and economic spheres, and there is a need to respond strongly and confidently to their outdated political concepts and downright lies”.

As well as maintaining support in (UK) Parliament, “we need to talk directly to EU institutions, other European countries and key states, to put our case firmly and strongly”.

The MLA-elect said he has long advocated a strong North-South commercial air-link, free of Argentine interference. Similarly “economic and social development will be strongly assisted by a continuance of a commercial containerised shipping service” and “it is time to be talking to the public about the realistic options available to us in these areas, and gaining their support for what will be very substantial risk investments”.

The split saw the majority of votes being shared between the top two candidates. The results were: Mike Summers, 259; Steve Vincent, 177; Norman Clark, 96; John Birmingham, 87 and Ian Hansen, 49. There were also eight spoilt votes.

Although disappointed that he was not elected, businessman Steve Vincent said that he was encouraged by the support he was given and confirmed that he will be standing again at the General Election in 2013. He described Summers as a “very good statesman”.

Asked if she was surprised by the result MLA Emma Edwards said: “Yes and no, Mike has a lot of loyal supporters in Stanley. I would like to have seen fresh blood though, simply because it is always good to get new people to experience what council is like”.

Former Assembly Member Andrea Clausen said the result was totally what she expected from the word on the street: “Mike has always excelled in international affairs and that is what he based his manifesto on”.

I never understood what the real reason you have to be an independent territory, are a few people who are on islands with nothing to defend, you have no ideology of its own (you responding to the Queen of UK), you are not a religious group claiming a holy land, you only defend a space just because, and you are there ... Thanks to the colonial policy of UK exercised for hundreds of years.
I respect all opinions kelpers, but you have to be conscious that in 10 years (or earlier) will face a reality that is going to be difficult to assimilate. You've got to think about buying a new life or find another hole in another part of the map.

If you ever need any evidence that mental illness is rife in Argentina then look here. How many Argies have delusions of grandure or some other warped sence of reality.

If the FI were ripe for the picking then why do they not invade with their four patrol boats? If Argentina had a legal case then why do they not take their case for legal adjudication? These are two questions that they avoid all the time. Answering them makes them realize that they have no capacity to threaten the islands or a legal basis. Reality is clearly painful for them.

rmalone - next time you open your trap try to make sure you know what you are talking about because what you have just said makes you look like a proper tit.

Oil production in the FI will be conducted with a FPSO set up and all wells and manifolds etc will be shipped in, set up, ran and decommissioned without any need for resources from continental South America. They will all be subsurface and the FPSO tanker will simply cruise up, connect and once full go straight to the refinery for the oil to go to market. At the same time they can stick two fingers up to you as there is bugger all you can do about it.

RKH have already presented the FPSO oil production strategy in Stanley. Try harder next time or simply know your limits.

I'm afraid I can't see where Argentina invited the UK for arbitration “like 5 times”.

I can only see 1, yes ONE case involving the UK and Argentina. In 1955. That was when the UK took Argentina to the ICJ to test the sovereignty of South Georgia, South Sandwich etc. Argentina rejected the jurisdiction of the ICJ. Why? Is it because you knew you had not case and would lose? I am 100% that is the reason. Yet you still claim SGSSI even though you have no basis for your claim.

Can you not get it - there is but ONE place that has the power to arbitrate and rule and that is called the IJC!
Can you also not get it into your head that as Arg has publicly stated several times the only solution to any talks will be full sovereign control- and has their claim of full sovereign control over the Islands formally written into their constitution, and has made it clear on many occasions that the peolpe of the Islands have no rights of any say in their future at all - there can never be any talks dumbo!
Talks and negotiations happen only when both sides want to solve a problem and enter into them with NO predetermined fixed one side only solution!!

You must have an interesting interpretation of the word 'losing'! Every year the UK ignores the C-24. Every year the UK repeats much the same statement to the Fourth Committee. Every year since 1988 nothing happens!

And the Falkland Island's remain British.

If that's losing it'll do for us :-)

And you still haven't offered any proof of your claim that Argentina asked the UK to go to international arbitration. Nor any reason why Argentina will not do so now that there is a permanent court available.

And the UK cannot take Argentina to the ICJ. Because you haven't fully signed up. When you do, then we'll have the opportunity to take you there. Which is why I suspect that Argentina does not fully recognise the ICJ.

Fair enough?

@69 Let me explain Briton, Isolde (the beautiful lady that swims with the whales), stated on @66 that Patagonia belongs to you all (GB). Not because somebody does a pit stop and refuel the car can claim the Gas Station, right? Do you follow ? :-))))

@70Artillero601,
Dolphins, not whales.
We were in Patagonia first, Artillero. l suppose we could share Patagonia with you but not the Falklands.
Wouldn't you like to be a General in the Patagonian Army?
We could even arrange to have Private Think in your Corps. OJ!
