    Wouldn`t it be nice to to see either Sharon or Gavin having a televised Falkland Island debate with Christina on television ? I don`t suppose it will ever happen.

    Exactly what they need to do, get their message across to the world at every opportunity.

    No way for the Argy gov to counter this.
