    Strange people these Argentinians...

    ''The Question of the Malvinas Islands, understood as being the sovereignty dispute between Argentina and the United Kingdom over the Malvinas, South Georgias and South Sandwich Islands and the surrounding maritime spaces, originated on 3 January 1833, when the United Kingdom disrupted Argentina’s territorial integrity by illegally occupying the islands and evicting the Argentine authorities, preventing their return and the settlement of Argentines from the mainland. Since then, Argentina has consistently denounced the United Kingdom’s usurpation and, as it is provided for in the Argentine Constitution, has ratified its sovereignty over the islands and affirmed that its recovery in accordance with international law constitutes a permanent and unrelinquished goal.''

    Seriously, have you heard of a territory being usurped in the 19th century?

    I'm pleased to see moves in a more positive direction rather than in the reverse, as was so habitual for the 12 years of Kirchner rule.
    The issue of sovereignty is never going to go away, but at least the two governments can sit down and talk about more practical issues in a pragmatic manner.

    The question is why is this piece appearing in Mercopenguin, a British government propaganda organ supposedly devoted to America, South America and the “South Atlantic”?

    “The question is why is this piece appearing in Mercopenguin?”

    Because Argentina is in South America?
