man!!!you always waste your time with your crap comments !!!
Interesting that Think thinks it a good idea that the Islanders build on their links with the UK and Europe by ensuring they have more time to make contact.Apr 01st, 2011 - 12:49 am - Link - Report abuse 0
I think that Think has realised that the Islanders no longer look to the Southern Cone as a source of business, trade, or services, and that they aren't upset about it; this is just the right conditions for the Islanders making themselves more self sufficient, self reliant, and self dependent, an excellent way to build a psyche for self determination.
This is bad news for Argentina, since there is no way they can hope that the Islander population will ever consider adopting Argentine Sovereignty, as all links, both business and social, are effectively being cut by Argentine actions.
Think, you sure you've thought things through properly?

Falkland Islands is a part of UK since Jan 1/1983 ,not c0lony !
Uh, I think they were a colony long before that yul, if you don't mind me saying that. Granting the islanders full British citizenship just made it more obvious.Apr 01st, 2011 - 02:08 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
What they tell us and what they tell themselves are two different things. You know what I'm saying, don't you Brits? ;-)
You prefer the union jack over the Falklands flag, don't you?
You feel more British than the Brits in the UK, precisely because of Argentina's intention, it's reversed psychology... we question your rights, your values and your whole society... so in response you reach further into your origins than you normally would.
But you come here an pretend otherwise, you are... independent and nothing to do with the UK Argies!!.
Bullshit... you're as plain and obvious as a piece of paper, you're no mystery to us Kelpers. Your isolation makes you dumb and naive, and you assume we can't see through your lies. Think again.

Wow, that's quite a rant on an inconsequential story Martin.....who took the jam out of your doughnut?
Almost every story on here is inconsequential 'Westis', what difference does it make? I'll whatever I want on any of them.Apr 02nd, 2011 - 03:41 am - Link - Report abuse 0
The Union Jack is part of the Falklands Flag.Apr 02nd, 2011 - 01:22 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
And still.... our brave flag flies high and proud over these, our beautiful, resource rich, Falkland Islands.
Why do Argentinians allways talk so much about colonialisme. Do they not know where they themselves live?? Do they know what the words Mapuche and neocolonialism means????Apr 03rd, 2011 - 04:00 am - Link - Report abuse 0
