    Perhaps the whole of Antarctica should be preserved,
    A Marine Reserve, would stop anyone claiming over it,

    And perhaps the British could look after it, and make it look all nice

    @1 Out of the question. That would be an unacceptable disruption of the self evident territorial integrity of Argentina. One that is on a par with the piratical usurpation of Shag Rock and other inalienable projections of the Argentinian continental shelf above sea level. The whole world except Britain agrees this is the case. Honest.
