Argentine ambassador in London Alicia Castro revealed she has been meeting with Welsh MPs for the potential organization of the 150th anniversary of Welsh settlers in Patagonia in 2015. However Welsh sources said initial discussions broke down because the Argentine representatives were seeking people supportive of their views in the Falkland Islands dispute. Read full article

    “no regional country has recognized it as a legitimate voting process”. Interesting comment gone from the whole world to regional.
    “Nothing. We are fully committed to respect their identity. They are British, they feel British and we respect that and their way of life”. If you respected them you ginger bint you'd fookin leave em alone.

    God, the woman is incompetent! Most people of Welsh ancestry speak Spanish as their first language, not English, much less Welsh. Is Welsh an official language in the province of Chubut? Are the roadsigns bilingual? Do they get Radio Cymru and S4C. If the Falkland Islanders wanted to assmilate into a Spanish-speaking society like Argentina, they would have gone to Argentina in the first place.

    Read below again you, the deluded. You know who you are.

    “The idea you can compare the Welsh settlement from 150 years ago to the Falklands does not stand up to scrutiny. It is not as uncomplicated as Ambassador Castro suggests”.

    Finally “I think it is an unfair comparison to look at the Welsh in Patagonia in the 1858/60 alongside XXIst century Falkland Islanders. It is just a different situation”.

    Those original Welsh settlers who voluntarily went to Chubut in 1858-60 did so in the full knowledge that they were going to live in Argentine territory and be governed ultimatley by Argentine laws etc.
    Those who voluntarily settled in the Falklands - some 15- 20 years earlier, did so in the knowledge that they would be in British territory and under british Laws etc.
    A very clear simple difference - but clearly to much for a dumb Argy Lady.

    Only the British can muster enough chutzpah to have the temerity of actually daring to turn a horrendous crime into some sort of magnanimous act.

    “We give a referendum to the Scots”
    “We would give a referendum to the Welsh”
    “We let go of our empire from the bottom of our hearts”.
    “Why doesn't Argentina do the same”?

    Well, because first of all, the second point is a non-starter. Since no province in Argentina, much less the Welsh Chubut, want to secede from the country, it is farcical to suggest and so logically British in logic to even dare suggest they are being denied a referendum. Unlike the UK and all other nations in Europe, Argentina is a rock solid union.

    But secondly back to the first point. And let me address it with an analogy:

    “I will grant and pay for an abortion of the woman I got pregnant”
    “I will pay for all her medical expenses beyond that”
    “I will pay for any psychological council”

    Wow... what a fabulously kind-hearted rapist!!!

    Its not the happy picture your are trying to paint. The way youve tried to distant Mendoza from BA and the rest of the country clearly shows that as well.

    Why is Argentina so nationalistic? Its because of the fear of BA that the provinces would develop too strong a sense of their own identity and get too 'up themselves'. So as well as keeping the provinces dependent on funds a constant propaganda campaign is in effect.

    Which is why you cant forget about 'ARGENTINA!' wherever you go in Argentina. Through flags monuments slogans etc or through media, 'education' etc. Its always within sight or hearing.

    This is what a hysterical government does when its always worried about the country fracturing. Australia doesnt have its flag colours or monuments every few kilometres in the desert etc reminding people they are in -AUSTRALIA!- Not many countries do. Just the insecure least democratic ones

    You are off your Tobers.

    You have no idea what you are talking about are you... how sad, trying to argue with an argentine about internal argentine matters. Not very smart.

    I have never put any distance between Mendoza and anything else. I have just mentioned we are leaders within my own country. Which is true, I have never said we don't belong to Argentina, nor compared Mendoza to anyone else outside. Once again, your hatred of us gets you off the wrong track.

    I am wondering which “desert” road you took in Argentina. You see I drive the roads and in Mendoza you can drive 100 kilometers on RN40 before you even see one flag... and that's usually only because there is school, in a small town.

    The fact that a mediumly coherent British poster like you is now resorting to lies as well shows the level of hatred and vitriol that is emerging from that island nation.

    I do find your third paragraph the funniest of the month though. When you are in Argentina, you seem not able to forget you are in Argentina.

    Kinda like when one is in the UK, one has a hard time forgetting you are in the UK????

    hahahahahahaha, you funny man.

    Australia doesn't have a flag anyway. Or at least not one of their own. In Australia I would think I'm in the UK based on the flag.

    Ive travelled extensively through Argentina. Ive also travelled extensively through Australia. You can travel a 1000 kilometres through Australia through dusty towns and not see a single Australian flag or national monument or at least not without looking for it. in Argentina you WILL see a flag, the flag colours a monument or something nationalistic regardless of the size or significance of the town, junction.

    Also its interesting that you dont understand the concept of being able to forget about thinking about the nation and just getting on with your life. I don't think about my country most of the time . It appears you do and for the reasons Ive already given.

    A welsh sect went there to protect our Welsh way of life and the language from becoming more and more English. I find it pretty ironic, the main language is Spanish instead of English and those who still speak Welsh, speak a dialect that is different from the two Welsh dialects at home and they speak it with a ”Spanish accent!'. It would appear to have been a good idea in the planning but a shit idea in execution!

    Meanwhile back at home, Merrionnydd where they immigrated from is almost exclusively Welsh, all over Wales welsh is taught in schools, more and more youngsters are speaking the language. There is a multi lingual national assembly, courts are in welsh, bilingual road signs with welsh the first language, welsh radio and TV etc,etc.

    Like I said, IRONIC!

    So, I think we need a project post-mortem here for our intellectually confined friends from CFK's government. This latest attempt to skulk around and find people to support their claim has also ended in failure. Even when people have been found, the net result has been a failure. Put it another way (ttt, need your help here) they have lost, not won, failed to succeed, not achieved the objective...

    So let's review the project. What were the objectives, requirements, premises, success criteria? Were all of those badly chosen ? Was lying constantly part of the execution methodology, or was that a technique developed purely for this project? Was lying a good thing? Would you use it as part of the programme of work given the failure of this project.

    What about costs? Given the abject failure of the project, was it worth spending tax payers money on in these cost conscious times? Were the right personnel involved, how were they performance managed and how has the failure of this project been reflected in their compensation? Did they have a plan B? Did they have a plan A? Was there a second point on any agenda at anytime ? If it existed did it include the word Malvinas or not?

    What are the next steps? Are you going to run the same project again, with the same personnel, premise, methodology? If so why? What is it about this project objective that allows unabashed failure to be a result that you are happy with?

    Report on my desk by 8am please.

    You misunderstand the project.

    The project is not to gain sovereignty of the Falklands. Only the most ridiculous retards like Marcos, Raul, Malvinero and Jose think that is the aim.

    The project is to divert news streams away from the dog turd of an economy, the blatant corruption, and complete breakdown of civilised society.

    The government are using Nationalism (National Socialism) as the lowest common denominator to detract attention. CFK and Tinpot know full well the Falklands will NEVER be Argentine and never were....they just want the retards concentrating on something other than the horseshit mess they've made of Argentine.

    Guess what...there are currently sufficient retards.

    ”Challenged on whether the way of life of Falkland Islanders would change if they came under Argentine rule ambassador Castro affirmed, “Nothing. We are fully committed to respect their identity. They are British, they feel British and we respect that and their way of life”.

    So committed to repecting their identitiy that if a Falkland Islander goes near an Argentinian politicitian they sh1t themselves and run a mile.
    Your country won't talk to the Islanders now. So as you refuse to acknowledge they exist, how is that a sign of respect for their identity?

    Because all this is another Argentine exercise in their greatest and most successful activity.

    Having traveled throughout much of Chebut province and Patagonia generally, I would say the Welsh connection is very thin indeed nowadays. A handful of Welsh flags to mark a historic rather than current connection, a couple of supposedly welsh tea shops strictly for tourist consumption, maybe a few old buildings that you might recognise as welsh design if you were looking for it- little else. I chatted to a lady in one of the tea shops who basically admitted that there is barely anyone around now who can speak more than a few words of Welsh, almost all fluent speakers having died out generations ago. The practical reality too is that after 8-10 generations the welsh bloodline is extremely diluted. These people are now as Argentine as anyone else in Argentina.

    @34. Indeed, the only people to gain from sovereignty resolution would be the Islanders because they hold every willing card in the deck, where as the AR trump cards are fantasy written in crayon (and you can't play an Old Maid in poker no matter how well you draw her). Even if the laws of reality and related sign changes were to flip over the equator, AR winning sovereignty would be a disaster for AR. It would solve none of their problems. They would still have to criminalize accurate statistics, they would still clamp down on dollars and the press, and the would would see that Ms Castro is a GD liar over respecting the rights of the islanders as fascist AR puts its jackboot down on the face of their new colony.

    If, by some incredible chance, the Islanders decided that they wanted to join us poor slobs, CFK and her troupe of buffoons would have multiple heart attacks because they would not have the “Malvinas” myth to blow smoke in our eyes when the economy goes tits up as usual!!!!!!!

    As to the Welsh Colony in Chubut, it was started to save the Welsh language from erosion by contact with English, and the understanding reached with the Argentine Government in 1865 was that the colonists would be allowed to keep their language, culture and customs for ever. This agreement was complied with by successive governments until Perón came to power and forbade the teaching of Welsh in the schools. At this point in time probably less than 10% of the Chubut Welsh speak Welsh, there are about 50.000 people of Wels descent, not 79.000, living in Argentina.

    Well Argentina used to offer them very good doctors in city clinics, shopping trips, very convenient flight transfers to anywhere in the world without visa and shorter flight times, economic trade, cultural exchange, the chance for them to visit relatives in the Argentine mainland of which there were plenty in Santa Cruz, easier logistics for their oil development, fisheries agreements, etc.

    None of which would benefit Argentina because its like comparing a flea to an elefant economically.

    But Argentina is no longer interested in any of that, because it simply has no importance in Argentine foreign policy or economics, to engage the Falklanders. Just like the UK is rightfully uninterested in talking sovereignty.

    No such thing as Argentine Welsh, they are all dead. If their descendants want to be Welsh again and speak Welsh. They should leave that Spanish shithole and emmigrate back to Wales.

    Whoops, not that east, cos the fuckers are Argentine, not Welsh!

    Seriously though, what a bunch of pricks, travel half way round the the world so they do not have to speak English. This is the best bit, really is, they wind up speaking Spanish.. lmfao

    @22 Unlike the UK and all other nations in Europe, Argentina is a rock solid union.

    Is that supposed to be a good thing? Anyway, there's more cohesion between the UK and the Republic of Ireland than there is between different parts of Argentina. People from the rest of Argentina dislike Buenos Aires even more than people in Britain outside London dislike London. Buenos Aires could be moved to Italy and no one in the rest of Argentina would care.

    And if Argentine society is so 'rock solid', then why are there those huge self-contained gated communities like Nordelta in Buenos Aires, which are called 'countries'?

    As for Australia still using a Blue Ensign, so what? The Argentine flag looks like the Honduran and Nicaraguan ones - Canada's flag is more distinct. Better evolution than revolution, anyway, - if being a republic is oh so modern and democratic why all the military coups and juntas?

    I'd like to relocate the Argentine Embassy in London to Foulness island in the Thames Estuary, which would be under its jurisdiction - Argentine laws, taxes, etc, and settled by Argentines. However, as it would be a corrupt crack den with hyperinflation, the Argentine settlers would be begging to be returned to British jurisdiction in no time.

    Are you submitting your resume for Top Moron of Mercopress? It's not too shabby.

    You really have no clue and are talking out of your own arse, befitting your chosen name “britanico”. You people really believe that talking absolute nonsense and lies will somehow make them suddenly true. Well in that you have more in common with the “malvinistas” than you may want to admit.

    Since when are gated communities a sign of national disunity? If that's so then the USA is the most dysfunctional nation in the world... they are the Kings of gated communities along with Brazil.

    Finally, and the most eye-catching part of your resume for Moron of Mercopress, is your hopelessly errant blunder about the Argentine flag. No doubt a product of your useless British education, but the reason the Honduran flag, and the Salvadorian, or Nicaraguan, or Guatemalan, or Uruguayan, or Paraguayan and Costa Rican to a lesser extent resemble Argentina's flag... is *gasp*, their flags where calqued from ours!

    Another British buffoon trying to disparage Argentina bites the dust.

    Stay in your island fool, no one in their right minds want to join your disintegrating union.

    Not sure why this debate gets occasionally side tracked into discussion of the Australian flag- Australia is a democracy and can change it's flag (including removing the union jack) any time the majority of citizens wish to do so, IF they wish to do so. I imagine it's precisely the same with the Falkland Islands- entirely a matter for it's citizens to decide what flag they want and, and no-one else's business.

    Johm trol (whatever) “Australia doesn't have a flag anyway. Or at least not one of their own. In Australia I would think I'm in the UK based on the flag.”

    I you ever visit Australia YOU may think that; however, that is a reflection on your own ignorance and personal prejudice. The usual visitor respects the right of a country to have whatever national symbols it choices.

    But there are, unfortunately, the few who view the world through a prism so narrow that they see nothing but there own bs.

    @22 Are you criticising? You with your genocidal “Conquest of the Desert” on the paper you call a currency? But let's stick with your analogy.
    “I will grant and pay for an abortion of the woman I got pregnant” Why would you do such a thing after murdering her husband and raping her? As you did in your 2 “Conquests of the Desert”.
    “I will pay for all her medical expenses beyond that” Don't be silly. Normal argie response is “She's a savage. She can produce or die. Why would we care?”
    “I will pay for any psychological council” Another typical argie response. “Get on and drop it. You have work to do.” Latinos have always been known for their brutality and arrogance. It's why we Brits have always enjoyed killing them!
    @24 Why? Are you blind as well as thick? You can't see the 6 stars? Ever tried the Hawaiian flag? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flag_of_Hawaii.svg
    @26 South-east South America. New British missile range and nuclear “test” site. Then we might keep away. Except for the scientists. And the troops.
    @48 Wrong. The correct word is “wee”. Meaning “small”. Or, possibly, “piss”. Argies being piss-poor little people with tiny minds. Wherever they are.
    @50 So piss off. But you won't, will you? You have the desperate need to insert your ha'porth worth of drivelling garbage in order to justify your pointless existence.
    @54 Depends on what you class as “internal”. Argieland seems to think it has the “right” to “demand” that the Islands “answer” for an “internal” Falklands/British matter. A simple proposition. If you can't take it, don't hand it out. But then your “nationality” seems to change to whatever you deem “suitable”.
    @57 So, never offered anything of real use.
    @59 Learned nothing. Still that's an animal for you.
    @81 He wasn't talking to you. Notice how people prefix their comments. Sorry, you don't have that much brain. One “refutes” something by addressing remarks to the person that made them. You don't qualify as a “person”.

    Pathetic Argie politcians. Interesting to note that running through the US papers when the 'Falklands' are mentioned whereas 75% of those writing in used to be for the UK stance but lately it seems to have gone up to 95% pro UK. I believe this is down to the referendum and stupid comments made by CFK, Tin Man and Co about squatters having no rights. LOL.

    John Troll the 3rd If you hate Europeans so much, especially 'los británicos', then you should use an indigenous name. Can you speak an indigenous language? Or even name one? Before you accuse me of being a monoglot Anglo-Saxon, I speak Irish better than most Irish people.

    My useless British-style education involved learning Spanish, but conjugating verbs properly, none of this vos podés nonsense. Real Castilian Spanish, not that silly Italian patois you have the cheek to call 'castellano'. Mind you, I much prefer to speak Portuguese, none of those yucky guttural sounds.

    Gated communities may not be a sign of national disunity, but they are a sign of a lack of cohesion. See this documentary - http://leben-in-seifenblasen.ch/English/E-doku.html South Africa has abandoned apartheid, Argentina is embracing it.

    So the flag of the defunct Federal Republic of Central America was inspired by Argentina, not the other way around - who cares? Costa Rica's flag looks way better with a darker shade of blue, and with red instead of yellow - instead of this monstrosity - http://leben-in-seifenblasen.ch/English/E-doku.html

    Sure, nobody wants to join the UK, not even the overseas territories, but that's just as well as the UK has said it doesn't want it either. After Malta's Prime Minister demanded too much money, British governments haven't been too wild. (He decided to ally himself with Libya under Gadaffi instead, in exchange for cheap oil.)

    Germany was at its most peaceful and prosperous when it was a patchwork of small principalities and city states. Small is beautiful - and more prosperous, like Singapore, which actually voted to join Malaysia only to be expelled a couple of years later.

    Argentina bombarding European cities? I'm quaking in my boots. I'd be only slightly more afraid of China, and the worst it's done is have monolingual Chinese advertisements on London buses. What are you going to do, force feed us corned beef and tango us to death?

    ”Challenged on whether the way of life of Falkland Islanders would change if they came under Argentine rule ambassador Castro affirmed, “Nothing. We are fully committed to respect their identity. They are British, they feel British and we respect that and their way of life”.

    Bullshit..!! They will immediately move to out-number the English speaking kelpers with Argies. Since only a tiny number would want to go there and pay their own way, they would implant thousands of unemployed RG's already on Cristina F**K's payroll under her “state benefits if you vote for us” programme. The sudden increase in crime and other behavioural differences will create problems and tension between the 2 populations and in every case CFK's mob will be given the benefit of the doubt. Within a few years most of the English-speakers will be ethnically-cleansed otherwise they will always be a reminder of the British connection.

    @98 They released a nice advert from the presidency last year that showed the islands post ethnic cleansing, with everyone speaking spanish, looking latino and school-children saluting the flag of Argentina. This came under the title of 'the future of the falkland islands'.

    There seems to be a contradiction between what Ambassador Caster-oil is saying and the messaging coming out of the Office of the president which is clearly pro-clearance.
