    His skills are so few that he only gets the least politically challenging posts - Estonia (what a joke), Iraq (they have no choice) and now the Falklands (what can one say!). The further away from Britain the better - that's all I can say!!! I think the past is catching up with you Mr Haywood! Can we guess where next? Cornwall?

    Some British think they still rule the World! go back to the UK in Europe not Malvinas in Argentina.

    Thanks Alex, and whilst you're at it, why don't all you Argies go back to Spain and Italy or wherever it is in Europe you come from...

    we are not spaniars nor italians; we cry freedom; kelpers don´t.

    we are a republic not a colony of a monarchy.

    Cry Freedom but the Falkland Islanders are an exception eh, the arrogrance of your comments never ceases to amaze me. Newsflash. The Falklands have been self-governing since 1985. Their government is the government of their choice, elected democratically. Thats freedom for you, they can have all the freedom they like, apart from the right to make their own choices.
