    Further clarification of this policy from the official briefing notes to the Queen's Speech -
    “The Government is committed to the security of the Falkland Islands and to ensuring that the Islanders’ rights and wishes are respected.
    The referendum on 10-11th March, 2013 proved beyond doubt that the Islanders wish to remain a UK Overseas Territory in line with existing constitutional arrangements, with a 99.8% yes vote and a 92% turnout.
    The Government will continue to ensure that the Islanders are able to develop their economy, including oil exploration, without outside interference or harassment, and will rebut false Argentine rhetoric in whatever forum it emerges.”
    I sincerely hope that they will actively rebut the continual false history that is peddled by the Argentinean government.

    If the right to “determine their political futures” is an euphemism for the right to self-determination, the inhabitants of the Falkland Islands/Malvinas do not have it. The Gibraltarians, on the other hand, are in the happy position of having the same right. The distinction was established by General Assembly Resolutions 2065 (XX) and 2070 (XX).
    The former defines the Falkland Islanders as a “population”. The latter makes no such qualification of the term “countries and peoples”, as used in the United Nations Charter. Hence the Gibraltarians are deemed a “people”.

    It is lax of the British Government to so bundle the Falklands and Gibraltar together in the Queen's Speech.

    You are a silly fellow. Taken from the UN Decolonization website.

    In a vast political reshaping of the world, more than 80 former colonies comprising some 750 million people have gained independence since the creation of the United Nations. At present, 16 Non-Self-Governing Territories (NSGTs) across the globe remain to be decolonized, home to nearly 2 million people. Thus, the process of decolonization is not complete. Finishing the job will require a continuing dialogue among the administering Powers, the Special Committee on Decolonization, and the PEOPLES of the territories, in accordance with the relevant UN resolutions on decolonization.



    It's very clear.

    Aren't you glad you don't live in Argentina right now? The blue dollar is hovering at 10.45-1.

    But in regards to HM the Queen. She looks marvellous in her robes of state.

    Also you need to keep up with not so current events: The British Empire ceased to be (that means ended) after WWII.

    We now are a part of a Commonwealth of Nations, most of whom where former Empire members, but some of whom where not, and decided (that's self-determination) to join the Commonwealth.

    The fact that you always appear to harp on about the late British Empire makes me believe that you are green with envy of it, and the fact that Argentina will never have anything approaching such a great empire, no matter how much you try to steal land off all of your neighbours.

    The fact that protecting the Falklands and Gibraltar are in the Queen's speech is very important. That means it is now OFFICIAL government policy to protect these British Overseas Territories WHATEVER the cost.

    You have been warned.

    Have a nice day.

    As I have posted here before, the Argentine Government by not legally challenging the Islander's right to hold a a referendum have legally endorsed their right by their own acquiescence. So what they consider is of zero consequence as that is just viewed as self-serving.

    I agree with the right to self-determination of peoples and understand that only when the Falkanders wish, should the territory be handed to Argentina. But there is a terrible hypocrisy in the UK position, which must annoy genuine Argentine nationalists - namely that this principled position was never applied to the inhabitants of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean, who were summarily shipped away from the island to make way for a US military base, widely regarded as being central in the post-2001 'rendition' of suspected international terrorists. As British citizens, we must face up to the hypocrisy of our own successive governments on this issue because it does not help at all the argument for self-determination in the southern Atlantic.

    @25 - Pytangua

    Really, Diego Garcia? Bringing that up again? We've flogged that dead horse many times.

    Here is a brief summary.

    Diego Garcia has NO fresh water. Therefore it is impossible to live there without importing every drop you drink.

    When the plantation owners (not British by the way) abandoned the place, they left their workers to die. The British did move them off the islands because they would've ALL died. Or do you think the British should have left them all to die of thirst?

    The plantation workers didn't have the money to import their own water, so had to be moved. The British moved them to Maurtitius, and paid compensation to the plantation workers, via the Mauritian government. The Muaritian government pocketed the compensation payment themselves, leaving the plantation workers with nothing.

    The British then paid MORE compensation to the plantation workers directly.

    What is unfair about that? The land had never belonged to the workers. They had been abandoned and left to die by their former employers, and the British moved them to a safe place, where they could survive, and even paid them compensation (even though we actuall were not obliged to do so).

    Even if every single plantation worker was allowed back tomorrow, they'd be dead within a few weeks because there is still NO fresh water on the Islands.

    Try learning some facts about Diego Garcia first.

    Also. Self determination is the right to vote or participate in your own government. We did not take that away from them. Ethnic cleansing and self determination are different issues.. I don''t see how people confuse the two. Probably because Argentinians have no clue on what self determination is.

    'It is also its former colony Hong Kong whose “prosperity” is also due to the desire of England to bring “civilization” selflessly for the world.'

    No, it's due to British having a laissez-faire policy in Hong Kong, which allowed it to prosper, and which China has sought to preserve since 1997. Hence the retention of the legal system and currency - neither of would have been allowed if Argentina had got its way in the Falklands in 1982.

    Why don't you take it to the International Court of Justice, the ONLY body in the world that could ORDER the handover of the Islands to Argentina. But only if they found in your favour.

    You could send 44 million signatures to the UN but it still won't have the power to go against the UN Charter.

    Besides the UK could send 65 million signatures to back up our claims.

    Come on, if you're so convinced of your sovereignty claim then you would be desperate to go to the ICJ.

    But we all know that ALL Argentine claims are LIES. And when you lost, as you would, the entire world would know you for the LIARS that you are.

    And then it would be harder for you to maintain the delusion you have created for yourselves.

    Meanwhile, I'm sure dreaming about the Falklands will keep you warm, and feed you, and provide for you family....Oh wait it won't, and your government has been p!ssing all of your money away.

    It's a legal principle the effect of is to put up or shut up. It's not a sufficiency to issue public statements, if you don't use the courts you have no legal claim.

    legal acquiescence

    The common law doctrine of estoppel by acquiescence is applied when one party gives legal notice to a second party of a fact or claim, and the second party fails to challenge or refute that claim within a reasonable time. The second party is said to have acquiesced to the claim, and is estopped from later challenging it, or making a counterclaim.

    III. Scopes of acquiescence and recognition, and the materialisation of estoppel

    By either acquiescing in or recognising the otherwise illegal act of a State as in
    conformity with existing international law, the acquiescing or recognising State(s) are
    precluded from later denying the legality of such act.

    poor Jose malvinero.

    He thinks the issue isn't over...hahahahahahaha.

    Jose, the issue was over 30 years ago. In fact it was over about 32 years ago, when the islanders made it very clear that UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES would they want to be under Argentine sovereignty.

    All that the Queen stated was that her armed forces would defend their right to choose.

    You tried 30 years ago with your rather pathetic armed forces to deny them that right, and you lost. Of course, at any time you could try again...the result would be even more catastrophic for you.

    you seem to be of the opinion that your bleating to the UN worries us, or Toni's silly little fires bothers doesn't it just makes Argentina look pathetic (which of course they are).

    Now, one thing you can be certain that in 200 years time, the FALKLANDS will still belong to the Islanders, they will be prosperous and safe.

    It is Argentinas decision whether they want to waste more of you tax dollars (peso will be gone soon) on shopping trips to New York, Geneva or wherever to continue the doesnt bother us, except give us amusement.

    However, were you to invade again, rest assured that the response would be swift and devastating.

    44. South Georgia was claimed for Britain, named and mapped in 1775 by Captain Cook . Argentina clearly accepts all this as it uses a hispanic version of our name for the island. I also understand you only got round to claiming the island in 1927, a bit late I'd say. Also when we claimed the South Sandwich islands in 1908 Argentina made no objection, only claiming them in 1938.

    As regards the Queen, well it's good to see you have developed a system of government better than our constitutional monarchy, get back to me when your parliament is 800 years old and your last dictator was 350 years ago.

    lf you feel so strongly about it & have proof to back your claim, then take your case to the ICJ.
    Ask yourself, why has your country not done this?
    Could it be that they know that they haven't got a case?
    As l stated in post #40,
    South Georgia & the South Sandwich lslands were discovered & claimed by the British long, long before Argentina even existed & no Argentines have ever lived there.
    Once again, if you have proof that these islands belong to Argentina, then take your case to the ICJ.
    You have no proof, because they do not belong to you.
    Just because you were taught in school, that they do, doesn't make them yours.
    You were taught lies, by a government that thought that the UK was weak & you could take from us what you wanted.

That is the reason that I do not fall into the trap of answering to a (or a) kelper jerk (or false kelper do not know what are).
    That is evident in the 48 point 1)
    Regarding the South Georgia Argentines and South Sandwich Argentines could fill data page reinvindican more than our sovereignty and not a European country 14,000 miles away. But to me, was not going to come to “rush” an idiot usurper.
    Finally, if you do not you know, it can not go to the International Court of Justice UNILATERAL. Both parties must agree to submit to common agreement that go to that Court. Which country usurper, never be accessed because he knows he lost. So better the end with that ridiculous accusation of refusing to go to the Court by the Argentina.
    The interesting thing, in case you did not notice, is that you acknowledge with that, that there are TWO parties to the conflict and not three. The Court can turn the two sides only.
    And my speech at number 49 has to do with your little queen of shit, totalitarian, that she not respects neither the International Court of Justice in Great Britain sentencing the return of the Chagossians, but she with a Letter Patent MEDIA AGE she prevented. Viva la self-determination!
    Chau, Cynics!

    You are worse than a moron.
    And when you cannot answer, out come the insults.
    How very Argentine.
    lf we insult you, its because you started insulting us.
    You have no proof, you just thought that we are weak & bully that your country is, tried to steal our territory.
    Well, you'll never get OUR(i.e. NOT yours)land & its no use talking to you anymore.
    P.S. You don't need us to do anything at the ICJ.
    If you feel that you have a case, you can take it there all by your own little self.
    What's the matter, señor? Scared?

    “and is quite clearly demonstrates our titles Historical, Geographical and Legal.” - which are zilch !

    The bottom line is that you don't have them and you will never have them.
    Keep up the verbiage and childish insults. We are grown-ups and used to dealing with unruly adolescents. It's water off a duck's back but at the same time amusing to realise your total impotence in this matter.
