    Sorry, but I get the impression that sovereignty is being side lined just to acquire trade deals for profit,

    just my opinion, but I still don't trust the integrity of these politicians,
    but I could be wrong..

    Ambassador Kent may find that the Islanders just wish to be left alone and have no great desire to trade with Argentina. Uruguay, Brazil and Chile yes. But there are no warm feelings towards Argentina.

    Wouldn't put it past them, but they'll be caught out if they try. They nearly got away with it in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, but didn't succeed. Luckily too many people watch these people, enough to sound the alarm.


    “But there are no warm feelings towards Argentina”

    Here the islanders can empathise with Argentina by borrowing their 'blame someone else' psyche, through the strains of South American DNA present in the Islander gene pool.

    ”We'd like to deal with you but can't because your last regime under CFK demonised us. So owing to years of Argentine hostility and bullying we still don't trust you. Therefore using Argentine deflection psychology we'll direct you to talk to CFK and Gollum instead.
