Falkland Islands Day was celebrated last Wednesday 14 August with a reception at Government House in Stanley hosted by Governor Nigel Haywood. The date marks the first recorded sighting of the Falklands on 14 August 1592 by English explorer John Davis who captaining the 120-ton vessel ‘Desire’ in that month was blown by a storm into ‘certaine Isles never before discovered’. Davis account was published in 1600 in London by Richard Hakluyt. Read full article

    Yes a sighting that was recorded, with latitude and longitude at the time, in the ship's log. That is called EVIDENCE.

    I know that you don't understand that word, as Argentina prefers wishful thinking and lies to evidence, but the rest of the world understands it.

    As for him being a pirate, PROVE IT!

    I know, you could always take your case to the International Court of Justice. I'm sure they are eager to listen to your fairy tales and lies.

    We are British

    As I stood at my bedroom window
    And watched as plain as can be
    There is no place like the Falkland islands
    Which is so peaceful and so free.

    It was captain john Davis who discovered
    These islands in 1592
    And may his sole rest in peace now
    And we stay British through and through

    The tourists are amazed at the beauty
    The wild life is a pleasure just to see.
    They come from many distant countries
    To take away a special memory

    In 1982 we were invaded
    By Argentina just across the sea
    But thanks to Margaret Thatcher and her government
    Who sent a task force just to set us free.

    In the years to come we hope you will remember
    Those brave souls that fought here in 82
    The ones who gave their lives just to free us
    A place within our hearts we’ll have for you

    Peace and goodwill you will find here
    And loyal to the crown as well you know
    So keep that union jack a flying
    And never ever let these islands go.

    So let the minds be strong
    and the winds blow free
    We are British
    And that’s what we’ll always be.

    You seem to have a fixation on the word “pirate” which you apply exclusively to the “English” (British). The general meaning in English is a person or persons that attack and rob vessels on the high seas, with occasional forays on land. Acquiring territory would be co - incidental., not the main purpose.
    So, if we accept this appellation for the British, what name do we ascribe to the Spanish.
    They set sail to Central and South America, plundered, raped and murdered their way across a continent. Stole the land from what was left of the original population and continue to do so to this day.
    A word in Spanish which almost fits the bill is “pirata”, however this is not strong enough to cover what the Spanish did. Their crimes are in a different league to capturing Spanish ships, taking the treasure which had been stolen at gunpoint from the native Americans.
    Murdering unprincipled swines is as near as I can get, but I cannot find a word to cover this....sudden thought, how about Argentinian ?
    I would call the British action as poetic justice.

    whilst on the subject of pirates how about that famous Argentine patriot, David Jewett (who was in fact American but never mind). In 1820 he was the captain of the privateer Heroina (licensed as such by the United Provinces of the River Plate) Jewett was forced by storms to land at what he called Port Soledad. He had actually been looking for Spanish ships to plunder. Having found none he captured a Portuguese ship which because they were not at war with Portugal was deemed to be an act of piracy. After failing to repair the Honoria he then committed a second act of piracy by seizing the US ship Rampart. A year later the government of the UPRP discovered via a newspaper report that he had claimed the Falkland Islands in the name of the UPRP but had then 'forgotten' to mention it in his report.

    So, we can see a 'genuine' pirate and turns out he wasn't British at all but an American mercenary working for the UPRP (latterly known to the world as Argentina)!!

    Who cares if Davis was a pirate? Doesn't seem to matter if he was or wasn't. He discovered the islands. And to this day they are British. Next question...

    @12 And the United Provinces sent......a pirate. Took SEVEN months to get there. Did he walk? Official argie records show that Jewett did not mention his “declaration” in his “official” 13 page report. Nor did the “government” publish its sovereignty claim in its official gazette.
    @15 And the same goes for you, dumdum.
    @17 I know it's hard to believe. But let's see. Britain, as a unified nation, existed for at least 800 years before the genocidal, xenophobic, rebellious colony that called itself the United Provinces of the River Plate came into being. Britain discovered the Falkland Islands in 1690. Can we see how what is now called “argentina” lied from the beginning. No way was it “United”. How can you have “Provinces” of a rebellious colony? And there's more. Argieland claims that “inherited” the Falkland Islands from Spain. Except that there is no internationally-recognised legal principle for such “inheritance”. Nor did Spain ever have undisputed sovereignty. The only time it tried, it got its throat ripped out. (Falklands Crisis 1770-71). In 1776, Britain had concerns elsewhere, but never renounced sovereignty. Quite simple really. Like any other criminals, argies have never been more than trespassers. Should we fine them at the rate of USD$100 million per year for their crimes? But how do we get it? Argieland refuses to go to the International Court of Justice. But how about the International Criminal Court? But don't believe me. Unlike the argie liars, I won't give you links to read. I've given pointers. Do your own research. Make up your own mind.

    #17 What's with 1833? The only thing that happened then was that HMS Clio cleaned out a rats nest of rapists and murderers originally from the UP from the Falklands. These people had been annoying and threatening the Falklands population for about 3 months. After that, 180 years of peace only interupted by another rats nest clearout of 11,000+ invaders in 1982 who went home after 3 months in disgrace. Seems that 3 months is the right period to purge cocroaches.
    As for pirates, they are all from Devon and Cornwall, have wooden legs and a parrot on the shoulder. John Davis was nothing like that. Have a look at Johny Depp, you'll soon get the idea..

    All of what happened prior to March 2013 is irrelevant, never mind the fact that most of the TG claim is based on unprovable myths and lies.
    At the end of last year the UN GA issued a resolution 67/134 which, in paragraph 7(c), re-iterated what similar, annually issued, resolutions had said for several years. That is that the populations of the NSGT's have a right to self-determination. The Islanders exercised that right earlier this year with an almost unanimous decision to maintain the status quo regarding their political situation.
    RG trolls please note the word 'populations', many RG supporters contend that as irrelevant, non-mandatory UNGA resolution 2065 referred to 'peoples' then the UN Charter did not apply to the Islanders as 2065 referred to them as a population. UNGA 67/134, and its similar predecessors, dispels that myth. Just to add to the irony of the RG claims Argentina voted 'for' 67/134, as they did for its similar predecessors.

    It would seem to be 'game, set and match' to the Islanders, with the support of Argentina, unless of course they (RGland) did not intend to vote 'for' the subject resolutions. Always possible I suppose.

    The largest gangster and representative of the Malvinas, representing and appointed by the Queen more gangster in the world, continue lying and trying to deceive the world incredible inventing false stories about the Malvinas Argentinas, in order to justify desperately theft.
    There are thirty previous maps to “brave watching” Davis:
    Nautical Chart 1513 Piri Reis
    1519 manuscript map of Jorge Reinel
    1523 East coast of South America Juan Sebastián Elcano (Islas de los Patos and Samson)
    1527 Letter containing “everything that the world has yet discovered” by Diego Ribeiro (S. Anton 49
    1529 Universal Charter Diego Ribeiro (S. Anton to 49 ° S)
    1534 Map anonymous. In Peter Martyr, Opus Epistolarum.
    Islario 1541, XV map of Alonso de Santa Cruz (Samson 51 ° S)
    1543-1545 Atlas, second map of Juan Bautista Agnese (ILLAS of Clubs or San are 51 ° S)
    1544 World Map of Sebastian Cabot (Islas San Sone)
    1562 Bartholomew Map of Olives (Samson)
    Sive Americae 1562 qvarta and orbis partis nova descriptio etexactissima Diego Gutierrez. Published in Antwerp after his death (1554)
    1571 Map of Fernão Vaz Dourado
    1572 Map of Joan Martinez (Illa de Palo)
    1578 Western Hemisphere Joan Martinez (Illa de Palo)
    1590 Coast region Tierra del Fuego Magellan and Sebastián López (Illa Cam Com)
    The thieves say that Davis discovered the islands in 1592, but this guy was published eight years later! I can also say the same after someone discovered something, plus it's more than proven that already 63 years ago that the Malvinas Argentinas maps contained in Spanish.
    On the pirate Hawkins (as pirate like the late Woodward) the same English scholars dismissed it as absolutely and never taken into account, but in these latitudes these types think they can continue to deceive, the very deluded.
    And the writer, you forgot to say that pirates left voluntarily in 1774 in the only island that had occupied (the Trinity) thereby recognizing, by the Treaty of San Lorenzo, the Spanish sovereignty.

    Look at what you have just written:
    You start at 1513 and end at 1774! Let it go for for Christ sake, its just not worth it.

    We all know the islands had several claims made - even Uruguay has a stronger claim then you.

    Again, your 'fundamental right' to the Islands is based on a Pope (500 hundred years) giving Spain the divine right to most of S.America. The fact that the Falklanders are not Latin in culture and language does not give you the right to take them over.

    So there is supposedly 30 plus earlier recordings of the Falklands . Wonder if they are authentic or did someone invent them.

    Further fact that at the time of 1592 there was no Argentina either.

    Fact also that Spain has no legal right to give our country to Argentina because they did not own it either. Apart from talk of a French sell out to the Spanish nothing else is relevant.

    Argentina does not recognize the jurisdiction of the ICJ

    The following is an extract from an Argentine ambassador's letter to the ICJ when the UK attempted to take the sovereignty matter of some of the dependencies to the ICJ
    'The Argentine Government has several times had occasion to indicate in notes addressed to Her Britannic Majesty’s Embassy in Buenos Aries that it cannot consent to the question of sovereignty over the Antarctic Territories of Argentina which it is sought to raise being referred for decision to any International Court of Justice or Arbitration Tribunal. By this present note, my Government reaffirms its refusal in the most express way with regard to the jurisdiction of this Court and with regard to any possibility that it should be seised as such to deal with this case.”

    @34, so basically we're done here. Argentina does not hold the Falklands. It refused to go to the ICJ. The Security Council is supposed to send it to the ICJ. C24 is not supposed to be handling territorial disputes. They refuse to go to the one place where such things are to be done. It is “illegal” in their constitution to repeat their 1982 failed attempt in imposing their fascism on the islanders (and gladly accepting the price of such a success -- accepting and acclaiming a prolonged rule by their Junta they insist-or-pretend to oppose).

    They default on the resolving of the “dispute” through the only internationally accepted means necessary aside from butt-nekkid war. More still, this year they refused to meet with the UK to discuss the islands in clear and explicit violation of UNGA resolutions to which the UK explicitly worked within with which it complied.

    So while they may whine all they want, it truly IS 1850 all over again. The Falklands are the Falkander's by fact, law, reality and DEFAULT -- by the acquiesce of Argentina itself.

    So why are we still talking about this, Malvanistas? Oh yes, it's a distraction from your paymistress's long list of domestic failures.

    Jose, those maps are about as useful as Argie Pesos. Fit for one thing only.

    There are three ways for Argentina to get the Falklands:

    1. Make a successful case in the IJC - YOU CAN'T CAN YOU?

    2. Be nice to the Falkland Islanders and offer them a much better deal than the UK so that they welcome a takeover -THE REVERSE OF WHAT YOU ARE NOW DOING.

    3. Attack the Falklands again and subjugate the Islanders and the British Armed Forces - NOT AN OPTION. You would doubtless fail and be humiliated once more and condemned by the whole world.

    Can't you see how hopeless Argentinas position is? Why on earth do you Argies keep whining. Don't you see it makes you look like idiots?

    Just to clarify 53 no identity's post:

    It looked at the web site for Aberdeen Airport, and was expecting to see direct flights to Nigeria on the schedule. (mongo)

    Voice - Aberdeen doesn't do intercontinental flights really. That's why I connected in CDG.

    Have you ever flown? -serious question.

    The article is on the Falklands and A_Voice has got you all over the shop talking about flights in and out of Scotland.

    Mate, pull the fishing hook out of your cheek! Who gives a flying fark where he lives. Honestly A_Voice doesn't say anything except get you running around trying to prove him wrong. That is his goal.

    A_Voice can live in Scotland! So? Once you accept that, he runs out of things to say!

    Escoses Doido - Crazy Scot - nice nick!

    A_Voice does the exact same thing with every other person and every other thread. He is a one trick pony.

    He has tried to bait me multiple times. He also claims that I am not Australian or in Australia. He claims I have sock puppets. But baulks and “leaves the building” when asked for proof.

    So just accept he is in Scotland. It's a big country and won't be harmed if he is. Once you accept that he suddenly will have very little to say.

    So what if he besmirches Scotland! The satisfaction isn't in proving him wrong but in knowing that he is wrong.

    So his current bone today is Aberdeen International Airport. Woopeedoo.

    As long as you don't talk about the Falkland's, he is satisfied.

They are the ones to arbitrate this since you failed to comply with 2065 in February when all parties were waiting with a chair waiting for your Timerman who lacked the courage to talk to two elected officials of just 3000 or so people? Why not, Malvi. Chicken? Weak? Just aware that you have no viable claim? Or like your government, you're just not serious about the Islands either.

    @77 Why not at today? Your case isn't getting any better nor will it. You know why. You have no case in comparison to the Islanders UN-recognized fundemental right to self-determination that you tried to take away from them in 1982 when you tried to impose your Junta, your problem and later when you failed to strip them and the Gibraltarians in the GA.

    As for February, you REALLY don't get it nor do you see how absolutely pathetic Argentine looked. Timerman could have gone and arrogantly ignored the Islanders and talked to Hague while they were in the same room. You would have loved it (while the rest of the world would have seen him for what he was). He could have brought Castro. Timerman could have brought Malvanista fake stakeholders into the room like you do in C24. He could have even brought in your celebrated Betts with a diplomatic passport. Statesmen love to talk. They love to be seen talking. They love to be seen making seemingly brave but meaningless talk talk that they never mean. They love to be Nixon in China. They love the picture of being seen shaking hands in the name of diplomacy. But he didn't. Because he was not serious about talking about the Falklands to begin with. Because it's too useful a distraction.

    Actually NOT my neck of the woods, Kirkbean, on the Solway is 64 miles from where I live. Glasgow city centre is 37 miles, Strone, by ferry is approx. 56 miles..
    A pirate is one who acts outside the law of ANY country for his own benefit.
    Apart from being an officer in the US Navy he was also a privateer.
    John Paul Jones, held a letter of marque from the Congress of the fledgling USA which allowed him to distress the enemies of the “USA”, and, as such, his actions were legal under American law, not piratical.
    Britain also gave letters of marque to seamen to harry and attack shipping of enemy countries as it was cheaper than building ships and paying for the crews.
    As to the rest of your assertions about JPJ's conduct, I can make no comment as I have only read about his naval exploits. Who did he kidnap ? However, the British government did mount a vindictive campaign against him with a series of scurrilous attacks on his conduct and person.

    then you will see what a wee runt you are to all Scots are! Friggin dwarves!

    Well, thank you for that complementary statement which again, is factually incorrect. As it appears that you have no love for the country or people, why do you grace us with your presence ?

    To other posters on the forum, I apologize for the deviation from the thread, partly caused by me at #16
    Lets move on from this ! However, I am having the last word on the subject of Glasgay or Glasgae..... both are wrong.
    If you come from Glasgow or were brought up there you would know that it is Glesga.. Phonetically pronounced GLEZ-GUH. For the reason that A at the end of a word normally has the glottal stop applied making it come out nearer the letter U as in UP.
    The song “I belong to Glasgow” was sung by Will Fyffe in an exaggerated Dundonian accent, not Glaswegian.
    I think that should be the last word on the subject.

    GFace in a discussion is righteous 2 parts British and one Argentina?

    I have to agree with you there. It should be two parties, Falklands and Argentina.
    It is up to the islanders whether they wish to discuss THEIR future with Argentina.

    @ 19 Not is true, that Jewett has practiced piracy against a Portuguese ship, since from 1816 there were incursions into the territory of the United Provinces of Rio de la Plata by troops Emperor of Brazil (the ruler of Lisbon had moved to Brazil after Portugal was invaded by Napoleon, establishing there the head of the Lusitanian Empire) in the context of what is known as “Luso-Brazilian Invasion”
    The war, unable to be declared by Argentina because fought against Spain, so then turned diplomatically silent.
    The not been formalized war, this fact does not mean that there was no resistance. made ​​by the General Artigas in the Banda Oriental or Guacurary Andrew, better known as Andresito, in the provinces of Misiones and Corrientes.
    The ground fighting had also taken to sea by letters of marque assigned by Artigas, one of Ireland's best known captains Peter Campbell, who British sergeant had been in the British invasions of Buenos Aires.

    “ The Islanders already have your representative: Mr. William Hague. listening, ”

    Hague was not born in the Falkland Islands nor has he lived there for 7 years becoming a Falkland Islands citizen. He is not an elected member of the Falklands Islands Government-so he can speak for the UK, but not the Falkland Islands.
