    @2 well the future government is going to have to decide what they want the falklands to look like. They cannot really remain a community of 3000 securely and I know everyone rags on financial institutions, but the one thing that South America is missing is a financial hub, a place with political and legal stability that the financial services trust. The only issue with this path is that you very quickly become a place covered in skyscrapers and little regard for the soul.

    I think it's also going to be these younger folks who will have to confront the UN and its beloved decolonisation committee about its complete lack of remit. (i.e. telling them to cufk off like the gibraltans do)

    Any time any Falklander tells the UN's decolonisation committee to cufk off, they will have my moral support.

    Building a big soccer stadium with oil profits might be an incredibly poor idea.

    Agreed the Falkland Islanders should tell the C24 to go check their history books and mind their own business-and keep asking to be removed from their list.
