Many Members of Parliament and in the Lords, from all parties, are totally committed to standing up for the Falkland Islands and rebutting the actions of Argentina, according to Conservative MP Andrew Rosindell and Secretary of the Falkland Islands Group in Westminster. He added people must know the true facts and intentions behind Argentina’s actions.

“Let me assure people on the Islands that there are many Members of Parliament and in the Lords – both Houses of Parliament in all parties – who are totally committed to standing up for the Falkland Islands and rebutting the actions of Argentina. And I am one of those as Secretary of the Falkland Island’s Group. We have seen in recent weeks and months how Argentina has been ratchet things up and becoming aggressive towards the Islands and it’s not something that we should be tolerating. There is, of course, a limited amount we can do; we don’t have any control over what Argentina does” said the MP for Romford.

“We do, however, have a very clear commitment on Her Majesty’s Government that we will not permit any aggressive acts. We commit our armed services to the Falkland Islands and we will be rigorously opposing Argentina in its claim against the Falkland Islands and in various global organisations where Argentina is now speaking up. We will be there to rebut everything they say and to make it clear that the Falkland Islands are British; they are Her Majesty’s territory and we will never be negotiating on their sovereignty” he added.

MP Rosindell added that Britain needs to be robust and resolute in defending the Falkland Islands and explaining to people the truth behind this.

“The reality is that Argentina has no legitimate claim on the Falkland Islands; they precipitated an illegal war in 1982 at which they were ejected from the Islands and we need to make sure that people know the full facts of this and that’s what we must do”.

    Under the international legal principal of uti possidetis, Argentina lost all claim to the Falkland Islands, irrespective of past history, when they fought and lost the war in 1982.

    Argentina is, quite simply, a cowardly, lying hypocrite. It is probably going to have to be taught another lesson.

    But this time we need to start by destroying Buenos Aires. It is, after all, no more than a current-day Sodom and Gomorrah.

    So... what are the facts of Argentina´s intentions?
    The only argument you have is that we lost the war?
    You´re gonna have to try a little bit harder than that... c´mon!
    Your lack of arguments is impresive....

    The end of British piracy in the South Atlantic is beginning! :)
