    It should be an interesting Conference,
    As long as CFK and the Spanish don’t petition to be there....

    No doubt they'll try and claim that this conference supports the inalienable rights of Argentina to the “Malvinas”.

    @2, I swear the coffee ring my morning joe made on my stack of papers said “Las Malvinas son Argentina!” And my pasta and tomato sauce in my microwave lunch looked just like CFK, or the Virgin Mary, Pacman, or like they're really scrimping on the cheese these days.

    Seems like the British Overseas Territories are successful places. I can understand why Montserrat, Pitcairn and St Helena need aid. On St Helena, the airport is getting closer to 25% of completion. Not bad in a year, and with 3 years to go.

    Has Sukey Cameron been implanted in England by the colonialist FIG to stop the UK being claimed by France, (as the UK is off the European continental shelf)?

    I'm sure the Argies would claim that if they thought it would advance their “claim”.

    Things seem quiet on the Falklands front so I am in “lurk” mode at the moment - I think this can only be good.
