    About time, we don't want Argentine riff raff and flag wavers or tyre burners in the FALKLANDS.

    Quite right too. Why should decent people feel threatened and intimidated in their own homes and have their peace breached by foreign state sponsored street thuggery.

    Pathetic bit of codswallop spouted by a dumbo and supported by others so it seems.
    Yet another alleged democratic argentine politician making it clear that a people who have been living peacefully in a land for cerca 200years and who-unlike most Argentines- pushed no indigenous people off the land - apparently have not one bit of basic human rights.
    And these dumbos wonder why we neither believe nor trust anything they say!

    But they are good at Fantasia Land and Dreams!

    Absolutely Made up, it's about time that this has been done, I'm sick to death of seeing the Islanders being made a Mockery of the Local Scourge, a Big victory for Common sense here !

    So what happens with people who have dual nationality with Argentina and being British?
    You will notice i did not say Falkland Islander!
    Will they be called trouble makers?
    Will they need visas to?
    At worst deported?
    Dose the so called choice still exist with out persecution?

    “So what happens with people who have dual nationality with Argentina and being British?”

    No problem. If they do something that gets them on the list, they're banned from the islands.

    This isn't a ban on Argentines, it's to prevent people who break laws and cause trouble from re-entering, no matter what country they come from. Probably in practice most of those banned will be from Argentina, but that is because most of the troublemakers are from that country.
