    Expected to fetch £3k. If Cristina goes on moaning much more then the price is certain to go up! Would really like to see how much it goes for.

    This should serve as a reminder of when the UK and brave Falkland Islanders, defeated the belligerent Argentines, and successfully demilitarised the South Atlantic in 1983. This 30th year anniversary should be as a celebration to this continued demilitarisation (except for the odd deterant).

    Those illegally squatting Argies have got it all the wrong way up, can you imagine the state of the south atlantic if we hadn't have spanked their arses?

    Maybe the Argentines should get regular touch-ups at 30 year intervals.
    Might teach them some respect.

    I wonder if the Argentine Government will be making a bid for the document?

    @6 their schoolbooks probably don't even mention the war happened, so this would be destined to be erased by the Ministry of Truth.

    Don't you just love the last line:
    “The Falkland Islands are once more under the government desired”
    If ever there was a statement in favour of determining our own future, then this is it
