    Argentina, again presuming what suits her regardless of the truth,

    Argentina really needs to grow up and leave the islands alone.

    What they need to negotiate is the return of the islands to the proper owner ..Argentina of course.

    Marcos- do please enlighten us- how do you negotiate the return of something you actually never owned anyway?
    The Islands are actually “owned” by the people who live on them and have lived on them for many generations and never evicted nor massacered any population that was there before them.
    Those people-of their own free democratic will- have made their desire very clear - they wish to remain aligned to Great Britain as they are to small to go it alone and need to have a friendly “big brother” to support them.
    Do get into the 21st century and out of the 19th.

    “..... how do you negotiate the return of something you actually never owned anyway?”

    It has to do with the concept of theft. Argentines are adept at theft. The country has the highest rate of theft in the Western Hemisphere and if the truth were known, probably within the habitable planets as well. Argentines live for theft. It is more natural for them than breathing and fornicating in garages. They cannot help themselves. Theft is inculcated whilst the little bastards are still in the womb, from which they are expelled screaming “lo quiero todo, lo quiero ahora, y lo quiero grátis. ” Theft is in their cultural ADN... I mean, DNA. Do not expect them to change. You deal with them by wielding a large stick, and a fleet.

    @2. Every single “claim” that you and all your compatriots have ever made to “ownership” of the Falkland Islands has been shown, time and again, to be either wishful thinking or lying falsehoods.

    I have always labeled the Argentine obsession with the islands as a psychosis, and I have always refused to fall for that syndrome. The islands have British residents, that's the story there.

    But the Falklanders are really showing now for a bunch of insular (pun intended) bunch of twats. They don't want air links to Argentina (we all know this is just a knee-jerk attempt at spite with no thinking behind it whatsoever), but then whine and cry that Argentina does not allow them access to ports.

    Typical Brits, they demand other countries do as they wish, or invade, bomb, or verbally abuse. The British have never once in history proven to be able to co-exist with anyone, either they destroy the other party or must be expelled by force of arms.

    Here you have the Falklanders rejecting outright flights (they could at least say “we will keep it under consideration”), but demand port access. They want to “a la carte” inpinge on Argentine sovereignty.

    They should be completely ignored. Maybe one the the Argie government will wise up. Then you will see them truly crying because as all good Brits they love being the craving-attention Diva. Just look at how the Brits are holding and have been holding the EU hostage for years and still are at it... “me, me, me, and me!”, that's all the Anglo knows.

    Four responses towards me, four “shut up”, “who cares what you think” *responses*.

    Indeed, I am beyond rebuke.

    It is well documented that all the theft in Argentina (yet far from being anywhere near the levels elsewhere in latin America), jumped dramatically starting the 1970s.

    In the 1970s 700K Chileans crossed the border.

    At the time there was no increase in theft in Chile.

    Marti Llazo can vouch for it.

    Typical, always someone else's fault, so you are saying that all the thefts can be attributed to the 700k that you say are all thieves that entered the country. No wonder the thefts keep acellarating as the police and justice system are not functioning as they should, you only have to look at the Nisman case as an example, they do not know to this day ( 14 months on ) whether it was suicide or murder.

    No rejection of flights. Just no desire for more than the current flights from Argentina. They have a link with Argentina. It is enough.

    Funny to hear an Argentinean call the islanders insular when it was his own government for many years that did everything possible to isolate the Islands.

    But what can you expect from an Argentinean education. Not much it would seem.

    Let's be honest, it was shocking and has been since the Argies invaded the islands, their constant drum beating about the Islands is nothing short of bullying. However it would be great to have another route off the Island without relying on MPA. On the subject of bullying, I'd like to see a new internet provider that was not going to rip the islands off. Sure just hold you to ransom as all bullies do. Let's look towards another country and see what they can provide!!

    ----------------------------------

    Subsequent to 11 September 1973 several thousand Chilean Marxists and their minions left Chile and made their evil ways into other countries, including Argentina, where many joined the leftist terrorist organisations, including the Montoneros, and contributed to the Dirty War.

    The thievery that had been been associated with the Unidad Popular gangs under the Allende regime found itself roundly discouraged under the Chilean military government, but welcomed with open arms by like-minded comrades in Argentina.

    Even without the 1970s influx, Chileans and Argentines for many years have interbred and brought about large numbers of undesirables. Néstor Kirchner is one such example.

    You and your Malvanista mates think that by saying the Falklands rightfully belong to Argentina, that it is enough. This is the same lazy attitude that has created the craphole that Argentina is.

    You have had plenty of opportunities like all of the Malvanistas to present a case where Argentina has proof it should own the Falklands.

    You have always failed, and Argentina's farcical arguments usually unsupported by any tangible evidence, shot to ribbons.

    If your theory is correct and that Argentina should have the Falklands regardless of the overwhelming evidence supporting the British claim, allied with the rights of the Islanders, affirmed by the UN; merely because it is your 'opinion' then the fact that The Islanders say something else is completely valid too, by your rules, which suggest that only opinion and not historical evidence count.

    Therefore according to your rules it is only opinion which holds sway so you have a problem, as the opinion of the people that live in the Islands, doesn't match those that don't live in the Islands.

    @8
    ”But the Falklanders are really showing now for a bunch of insular (pun intended) bunch of twats. They don't want air links to Argentina (we all know this is just a knee-jerk attempt at spite with no thinking behind it whatsoever”

    And who's fault is it that the Islanders are insular?

    You reap what you sow.

    OK, you say no thinking whatsoever.

    Are you disputing that LAN Chile is the best airline in South America, equipped with serviceable, modern aircraft?

    What serviceable aircraft would Argentina use to service a route to the Islands?

    Your premise is the Islanders deserve to be served by a sub standard Argentine airline, perhaps the Islanders prefer being served by the BEST South American airline or by BRAND NEW RAF Voyager aircraft.

    You propose TU154s! Why not DC3s?

    How would Argentina's museum pieces fly to MPA if the Argentine government refuse to contact the Dpt of Civil Aviation on the islands?

    I would guess the main reason to refuse air links with Argentina is to avoid becoming dependent on it in any way. Making it harder for harassing Argentine tourists to visit is a side benefit.

    ”Here you have the Falklanders rejecting outright flights (they could at least say “we will keep it under consideration”)), but demand port access.”

    You want them to lie about allowing flights in order to persuade Argentina to negotiate? I'm sure you'd be accusing 'the British' of dishonesty as well, if they did that. And I don't see any mention of port access in the article at all.

    In my previous employment I was in daily contact for administering EU regulations which did anything but benefit the UK.

    Our fishing industry has been all but wiped out by the EU. Spain probably has more vessels fishing in Scottish waters than UK vessels.
    We have been a net contributor to the EU budget to the advantage of Spain and other “olive belt” countries. There has not been an audited set of accounts produced for the EU finances since god knows when.

    The UK did not sign up for an United States of Europe but only as a trading block.

    Who's demanding to use Argentina's ports? You got a link for that? I think they'd be perfectly happy to use ports in Chile, Uruguay and Brazil, and perfectly happy if Argentina ignored them entirely as you suggested.

    And saying they'd be a drag on your resources is nonsense. You do realise ships pay fees to use a port right?

    Of course it is really Germany keeping the EU afloat (as well as probably doing the most to destroy it), but Britain has always paid in more than it gets back. And they are so keen to see us go that not one single government has said they are happy about the Leave result. Naturally the Leave campaign liked to say that Britain could never agree with the EU on anything, but it's not actually true.

    @8. So the UK has been “holding the EU hostage for years”? IF that were the case, I don't see where your problem is. You lot always want things your own way and bang on about “sovereignty”. How can you criticise someone else for following your example? BUT we've been honest. We sought to get an EU suited to our situation. We've done it peacefully, instead of invading some part of the EU more worthless than other parts. Spain, for example. When we sought some minor concessions to suit the state of our country, the response was such that a democratic majority of our electorate have decided that, after 43 years, enough is enough. So we're leaving. Europe can do without our billions.

    As far as port access is concerned, you have obviously foregone the assistance I gave you so that you could read Article 74 of the UN Charter. You've also foregone your opportunity to explain why argieland is failing to comply with a Charter to which it is a signatory. Denying port access to peaceful cargo and fishing vessels is hardly consistent with treating an NSGT in the same way that it would treat its own metropolitan areas, is it? In fact, argieland went further and pressured other So-Am countries to do the same. Prima facie, the whole of the South American continent is in breach of the UN Charter. And that's all you've achieved. It's not surprising that it's always been the argie FM announcing that various countries support it. It's virtually all been lies. In fact, there's very little about argieland that can be termed “civilised”. It has no moral compass. And neither have the majority of its population.

    @49. The Dutch verb is kunnen, related to English “can” - and the phrase (as was pointed out earlier) means “you can.” “U kunt” is roughly equivalent to “U kan.” “Kunt u me helpen” = Can you help me?

    As opposed to the Motto of Argentina, which reads (loosely translated), “No we won't and you can't make us and we're going to sit here and bang these pots together and throw rocks until somebody else pays for all of our necessities and most of the luxuries besides.”

    @52 ChrisR,
    l think that its just co-incidence that U Kunt has a normal Dutch meaning.
    l'm sure that the troll at post #47 meant what most people here thought he meant, given his ridiculous, persistent anti-British tirades.
    Backfired on you, didn't it, (CapiTrollism_is_back!!), you stupid troll?
    Try again, idiot.
    2nd prize is a bag of poop.

    I think we're all sure of that Isolde. Like Mr Troll knows any Dutch.

    It's still funny though. 'You can' is a great alternative meaning for UK, although the Chinese name for Britain is even better.

    The Argies have a bad case of sour grapes at the tennis. Do these idiots realise they're at a tennis match? Throw them into the Brazilian diving pool I say. Or better still, make them ride at speed down that Brazilian road cycling course.

    Anyway, it's all over; the Scot has won.

    @47 The Troll: 'CH does not mean Chile, CH = “Choto” '

    Not sure why The Troll is even remarking on the sigla CH -- which stands for Switzerland, the Confoederatio Helvetica. (BTW, Trollski, the sigla for Chile is CL. )

    @47 Andy Murray... apparently Argies were leaving early, couldn't bear to watch. Another piece of RGlands gold stolen by the Brits! Sulk on....

    Oi Nostril, the Brazilians were supporting our Andy last night, why is that?

    SA solidarity - LOL!

    Who did Brarsehole support, you must know since you are actually him?

    GB is currently in second place in the medal table. Woohoo! I'm sure it can't last but never mind.

    To be fair both players played one hell of a match. It was obvious that they respect each other. Del Porto cannot be blamed for the conduct of Argentinian supporters.

    I tipped Andy to win before I went to bed. When I saw that it was likely to be a drawn out contest Andy was the fitter of the two and so it proved.

    but the Team GB is on a high,

    perhaps one Olympic day, we will overtake the Americans,
    well I can hope cant I .
