    Commonwealth Flag? That's going to confuse the hell out of the Argie visitors. They'll think someone else has taken over :-)

    It couldn't have come at a better moment, the “Commission” will return to Buenos Aires full of evidence of a “Colonial Administration”, they will have to redouble Argentine efforts to “free” the poor islanders with the highest living standards in South America.
    Argentine indoctrination will reach fever pitch in the coming weeks!
    This wouldn't have anything to do with Argentina being in “election mode” by the way?
