Falkland Islands Members of Legislative Assembly will be present at the annual party conferences in United Kingdom. MLA Sharon Halford and MLA Roger Edwards left for the UK on Tuesday and will be joined for their task by the Falkland Islands Government (FIG) London Representative Sukey Cameron MBE.

FIG are one of the longest standing exhibitors having attended the Labour and Conservative Party Conferences since 1988; this year FIG will also, as a trial, be exhibiting at the Liberal Democratic Conference having attended International Day in past years.

The days at conference provide an excellent opportunity to meet a large number of delegates ranging from MPs and their constituents, media representatives, diplomatic visitors and fellow exhibitors – some 30,000 people over three weeks.

New contacts are made and former contacts updated on issues affecting the Falklands. MLAs also have the opportunity to attend a number of fringe meetings that may be relevant to the Islands.

Sukey Cameron MBE says “It is always interesting to find that a large number of people have connections with the Islands, either having visited themselves or know people who have. We are also pleased with the interest shown in the Islands and for the high level of support we always get.”

    kelperland say they are a democracy, but they have an unvoted representative in london for more than 20 years, who talk in kelperland who must be their representative in the metropoli??

    And she is not even a kelper. How much years did she live in south atlantic to talk about what´s happening??

    You are far away to be a democracy; unvoted & no kelper governor; unvoted & no kelper Cameron Sukey; london appointed & no kelper judge; and no kelper bureaucreasy; and the most importat thing....the unvoted and london written constitution.

    Kelperland is not a democracy, not even a country; it´s a colony....sorry chaps.

    No need to apologise for being wrong Billious !

    She is what she wants to be, it's called 'self-determination'. If she wants to be a Falkland Islander, and she has that status, then she is! Just that. A Falkland Islander.

    Nothing you can do about it .... sorry :-)

    I see the annual circus is back in town :-))

    “but they have an unvoted representative in london for more than 20 years, who talk in kelperland who must be their representative in the metropoli??”

    How many representatives of the Argentine republic in other countries were voted democratically by the Argentine electorate?

    I will give you a clue Blue Haze, none, because you don't vote ambassadors/representatives on the basis of democratic popularity......idiot.

    And even if it is a colony (which it isn't) its not for you or Argentina to decide who should rule, you don't live there, you don't the islands, you have no association with the islands....

    PPPS......If it is a colony like you say it is, then it should be decolonised in accordance with resolution 1514 and we know exactly what that entails don't we Blue Haze :) Oh yes you guessed it.....self-determination hahah nice one, you just defeated your own argument.

    Perhaps you should stop smoking the wacky tabbcy its obviously making your thought process a bit to “Hazy”
