    “Another colonial coin”

    Can't be colonial as FIG cannot be colonial. The MLAs are not appointed in London, but elected by voters in the South Atlantic. The coin was issued by the people who live on the Falkland Islands, (they are situated in the South Atlantic, not Europe), not by the British Government in London.

    All the money issued in Argentina depicting the Falkland Islands is false because Argentina aren't in possession of the Islands, so Argentina may as well issue money depicting the Sea of Tranquility. Argentina do not occupy, have people born on, or own the Sea of Tranquility either.

    As you imperialists claim to have an alternative Falklands governor, Bertone, why was she not present at the Liberation Day commemorations?

    Not up to the job is she. Too busy taking siestas to get herself on a plane to the place she is supposed to govern according to Argentina.

    Sack her.

    Nine generations of Falkland Islanders....whereas the average Argentinan's ancestors arrived in that country after 1880. The present Pope is only a first generation Argentinian.The whole history of Argentina is one of a Spanish shameful genocide against the native Amerindians. Whereas there were no indigenous people living in the Falklands before European settlement.
