    Well done to the winners and bad luck to the not so fortunate. This Assembly has got a lot to do, so get spending on the capital projects and don’t take yourselves too seriously.

    Congratulations to Stacy Bragger! I loved his audio documentary on the Falklands War and Occupation which was done for the 30th anniversary of the war. I got it on CD at a souvenir shop in Stanley when I visited the Falklands in 2015.

What exists is British citizens who live in the Islas Malvinas'' Argentinian Foreign Minister Timerman quoted by D. Telegraph London 6 Feb 2013).
