Falkland Islands athletes will join their counterparts from many small Islands around the world
Rumor this year is that England is making its debut in this competition.
England will return the Malvinas within 25 years.
England is not an island so would be ineligible to compete. Have a look at a map !
However, they would be in the top league for the Olympic games....unlike the country in which you live.
Watch now as some boludos from Argentina try to send a clown team to this competition, claiming to represent the Falklands.
Again, if there are 5 argies that care about the Olympics, there are 4 too many.
The rest of the world competes so why not Argentina? Scared that you are not good enough ?
Your boss to the north seemed to enjoy hosting it.
Poor old Hepatia. Again with the old “England will return the Malvinas within 25 years” BS.
#1 Yes, we have no Malvinas... (Chile has some though)
#2 England doesn't have the wherewithal to return the FALKLANDS (please learn the difference between “England” and “The United Kingdom of Great Britain”)
#3 The United Kingdom of Great Britain won't be returning the Falklands to Argentina without the express wishes and permission of the Falkland Islanders.
#4 It ain't going to happen.
One for trolley
Anyone care to guess why Argentina has never been considered to host the Olympics?
I mean seriously considered.
Only island with less than 150,000 population can enter.
Do tell us!
