The Falkland Islands government has no doubts about its right to licence legitimate offshore oil and gas exploration activities in accordance with Falklands' legislation and will continue to support the hydrocarbons industry as it moves from successful exploration towards oil production.

Marcos Alejandro: Perhaps it's true that British colonialism is unlawful, but the Falklands is not a colony, so your statement is irrelevant. The islands would become a colony if the Argentine gov't got their grubby little hands on them. In this case, Argentina is the wannabe colonial power.

Argentina is as fearful of Falklands development as it is of the rest of the world hearing the truth about the Falkland Islands. The tragedy for them is that the failed and fruitless policy of trying to bully Islanders into submission has resulted not only in us doing more, better and more quickly, but it has excluded Argentine suppliers and contractors from taking part in one of the biggest economic developments in this region.Jul 01st, 2015 - 11:23 am - Link - Report abuse 0

@13. Calling villas miserias country clubs now, are you? In the South Atlantic, there is only ONE legal democratic country. The Falkland Islands. Over to the west there are colonies in rebellion. Note that, COLONIES. Territories invaded, conquered, occupied by the EUROPEAN portuguese and spanish. And then demanded that they be recognised as proper countries. Comparison. It took an armed rebellion, genocide and 48 years before the colonising country, spain, reluctantly recognised argieland. Compare the Falklands. No armed rebellion, no genocude, just intelligent discussions. When argieland is in trouble does spain rush to its existence? When Brazil is in trouble does Portugal rush to assist? Nope. First because portugal and spain are effectively broke. Second, because they don't care. But Britain aids the Falklands! When requested. Some time ago, spain got together with argieland to discuss how to colonise the Falklands and Gibraltar. Failed. In recent weeks, spain was upset that the EU didn't list Gibraltar as a tax haven. Because it isn't. Because it had the intelligence to ask the EU for guidance on its tax regime. Hilariously, the spanish colony of Andorra is listed as a tax haven and spain has been identified as the most corrupt country in the EU.
Perhaps you haven't noticed that, legally, every inhabited island has its own continental shelf. You have no rights over the Falklands or its waters. Just another ignorant argie wish.

Argentina only desires to brutal bullying persuasion to eventually convince the world for its right to re-colonize with legal rightful Argentine native immigrants in order to de-colonize the colony of inserted illegal alien current residents.
You've successfully presented the Peronist doctrine for justifying that the Islanders are nothing more than a non-people or “implanted population“ which was the same Nazi strategy of lebensraum”
Argentina wants to settle the lebensraum issue cowardly through persistent diplomatic negotiations and bullying that will require other powers to force concessions to the United Kingdom. The Falklanders are considered by the Argentines just like the Nazis did of the Polish, Ukrainians and Jews.

Argentina’s wonderful ‘claim’ to the Falkland Islands has no legal justification since it is based on lies (the settlers weren’t evicted from the Islands in 1833), false notions about ‘territorial proximity’ which have no valid basis in law or in fact (the Island are a long way from Argentina), emotional mythology, the false interpretation of treaties and legal precepts and a ‘secret agreement’.
The ‘secret agreement’ that was supposedly struck between Britain and Spain exemplifies the fraudulent nature of the entire Argentine case. An agreement that exists in mythology but not in fact (show us document) is just like the rest of the Malvinas story – a fantasy.
And this is before the rights of the Islanders to enjoy freedom and self-determination is considered.
Argentina’s behaviour towards the Falkland Islanders is criminal and one day, they will be made to account for their uncivilised behaviours, their lies and harassments, their day of reckoning will come.

those anglo- argentine institutions (clubs, schools, whatever the fuck you want) have no relation whatsoever with britain or british institutions since the early 80´s.

because that community is now mixed with the former spanish, italian, french or whatever the fuck you want communities.
and as you can imagine, uncontrollable farter, we do not need any english polo player here.

He obtained his first degree in International History and Politics at the University of Leeds in northern England and completed his postgraduate teacher training at the University of London. He became Headmaster of St George’s, Quilmes in January, 2009, after two years serving as a Headmaster in Chile and nineteen years as a Headmaster in Peru. All of his schools have followed International Baccalaureate (IB) programs. Pringle is a historian and continues to teach the IB History Diploma program, for which he is also an IB examiner. For six years (2003-2009) Pringle served on the IB Heads' Regional Council for the Americas and also on the IB Heads World Council.

There is a formal relationship with the Headmasters Conference as I have clearly indicated. Also, like the headmasters of both St Georges, Quilmes and Norte, there are other teachers hired from the UK and they will have used the Times Educational Supplement to advised the vacancies.
So, whether you like it or not, there are both formal and informal relationships between these schools and the UK. Also, one imagines that if you were to be right these schools would be called San Jorge(which you quote????) and NOT St. George -right?

Reading all down these comments of past few days.This whole comment has got to the point of silliyness.accusations to them and to us,yes includes me .BUT this has gone past to sillyness point,its in the stupid point now.What one has to realise that the whole point of this question ,about the oil,oil rigs and getting oil to land.The oil will be sucked up,it will be put on tankers ,and will go to an oil terminal on the falklands ,then the falkland will be able to sell at a good price throughout the world.So giving moey to the falklands island economy ,and to give oil to the world economy.YES Argentina will need to buy oil from the falklands islands oil company.As yet this may be some way off,but NO argentine judge or Lawyers cant touch the Oil companies,cant touch oil rigs and cant touch the falklands .They are all in international waters.Outside of argentine waters.Also the oil companies do not any offices or banking facilities in argentina,so outside all legal means from argentina.So these are facts,this will happen sometime in the future.So Argentina wake up to the facts.By way whats idea of israel giving you argentina second class weapons.,even as argentina and israel dislike each other ,israel only do it for cash ,thats all,just cash.So thier we are.Get the facts/truths ,and for once argentina ACCEPT IT FACT.Jul 06th, 2015 - 09:02 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

All we can do is just ignore them & carry on doing exactly as WE want & stay well defended.
lf they see any kind of weakness, they will invade.
Eventually, the way that they are going, their country will collapse in a screaming heap, then that threat will disappear.

”The Argentine Sea lies within the continental ledge of the Argentine mainland. It is a part of Atlantic Ocean lies in the south of the Atlantic Ocean off the southeastern coast of Argentina, widening from the estimated latitude of Montevideo, Uruguay, southward to Tierra del Fuego. It is located about 500 miles (800 km) north of Antarctica.
The Argentine Sea covers a surface of about 386,102 sq. mi. (1,000,000 km�) and the average depth is about 3,952 feet (1,205 m) and the maximum depth is 7,296 feet (2,224 m). It is one of the largest seas in the world. The Argentine Sea gradually widens through southward, in contrast with the narrowing of the continental mass. The Falkland Islands are located inside the platform of the Argentine Sea.”

The Falklands is situated in the South Atlantic, and according to the ICJ the 1958 Geneva Convention on the Continental Shelf and Contiguous Zone, Article 1, now contained in the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention, Article 76, does not support the view that coastal states have sovereignty over islands above the continental shelf. On the contary it laid down doctrine that islands had their own continental shelves,” p.74The Falklands/Malvinas Case Breaking the Deadlock in the Anglo-Argentine...By Roberto C. Laver.
You lose again. So Argentina can produce as many maps as she wishes with altered place names, it has zero legal consequence. So it's likely that the UK or any other nation presented with such an assertion would shrug and say what do you expect, it's the Argentine when have they ever told the truth about anything.

guess you know that word very well.
and it is a word of french origin.

malvina as Mollymauk says is NOT Argentine- it iwas a popular girls name in Scotland in the 1860/70s and was the name given by the first Malvina House(it was for years a family home) to his daughter - and he named his new house after her.
His surname was Felton - not very argentine either. Plenty of his descendents in the islands today.
Incidentally a brother of his took the first sheep into Prov Sanat Cruz southern area from the Islands to Killik Aike Norte, just upriver from Rio Gallegos by sailing schooner in the 1860s. Some of the original jetty piles are still there in the river mud at low tide.
Don't forget Paulie - it was settlers form the Falklands who first settled and pioneered farming in Santa Cruz - until the 1980/1900 era The British Pound was the currency there - the Argentine prescence was little more than a Governor and few police!
Maybe we Islanders could launch a sovereignty claim to the province - we have as good if not better claim to it than you do to here - at least our ancestors opened up Santa Cruz and got development going!
All you lot ever did here in a couple of years was try and start a penal Colony!

Paul how does it feel when your typically Argentine 'demands' have NO effect whatsoever?
Whether you like it or not-there was more British/Falkland involvement in Patagonia in the 19th century than from your Argy mates who were too busy falling asleep all day in BA.
So one day Patagonia will be claimed for the Islanders.
