“Argentines love rattling the Falklands cage, and I suspect that journalists in Argentina, are being naughty as usual”, commented Labor MP Chris Bryant who was recently interviewed in several Argentine radio stations but was not able, because of workload, to listen or read to his edited statements, aired rather controversially.

    Always so steeped in bigoted prejudices against foreigners the British! It always comes through in its vocabulary and inferences like a spit in the eye.
    And “ long as the British want to remain British ...”, they can stay British in Britain, because the Islands don't belong to them. They are occupiers at the service of the British government since the first day they set foot on the Malvinas.

    Oh dear Trimonde, not on strong ground talking about “occupiers”. The country you now so fervently support - Argentina- was in fact the home of a variety of indigenous people. I don't suppose anyone ever asked them whether they were happy to hand over their country to hoards of Italian and Spanish immigrants who then called the country their own and systematically “ removed” the local inhabitants.
    As for bigotry a survey of your posts on this site could form the basis of a Masterclass on the subject.

    Well the Argentine is in default and parts of the Argentine are also in default, so the smoke screen is there as it has always has been during the bad and corrupt governments of Argentina.
    Problem is their education system is the only problem in the South Atlantic. No dispute should exist, it is only in the class rooms of Buenos Aires which in reality is a Renegade, White Spanish Empire Mark II and still fights battles of that original Empire.
    This is put in to Argentine's heads very cleverly, England never attacked Argentina in 1806 because it didn't even exist and those trophies are Spanish (they stole even the trophies), England didn't attack Argentina in 1845 at Obligado it was trying to allow freedom of commerce along with France and not to let Buenos Aires customs enrich itself just for being there, England didn't take away the “Argentine sovereignty” on the Falklands in 1833 because there was none, the so called governor had been murdered and his widow was in sanctuary on the British Ship “Rapid”! Peron's “Nueva Argentina” still tells them England has always wanted to attack you and took the Falklands so they “recovered” “justly” the islands in 1982!!
    Even worse, the “heroes” the soldiers of Galtieri go from school to school to indoctrinate the children, did Hitler's soldiers from 1946 go from school to school to talk to young Germans?
    The lies in the minds of the young Argentines are beyond belief and deserve to be treated by an in depth book and a psychiatrist, here we can only mention some of the problems. Falklands are like Canada and Canada has the islands of St. Pierre which in referendum voted to stay French, nobody knows about the islands because Canada is not fascistly poisoned against them and there is nothing but peace and self respect.
    With the Falklands there can only be armed peace, it is impossible to get through the web of lies of indoctrination and to reach the mind of an Argentine.

    They set foot on the Falklands, British territory since long before Argentina ever existed in any form.

    This is the uncomfortable truth for you, your claim entirely depends upon pretending the British history of the S. Atlantic doesn’t exist.

    Except it does and the S. Atlantic/Antarctic has been British territory since long before you murdering Creole Conquistador Planters, finished slaughtering the Native S. Americans and got to the Patagonian/TdF coast and the shores of the S. Atlantic, to become our new neighbours.

    You ran out of S. America to “conquer” from the natives (for their own good of course), so you tried to “conquer” the British territories in the S. Atlantic.

    Except unlike Atahualpa or the Mupuche, the British have more than just sticks and stone with which to defend their territory.

    Nasty shock for you.

    Learn from it.

    Get over it.

    Trimonde, are you aware that the Americas have been conquered by Europeans, who have displaced the Americans, and almost extermined them?

    So to
    And “ long as the Europeans want to remain Europeans ...”, they can stay Europeans in Europe, because the Americas don't belong to them. They are occupiers at the service of the different European governments since the first day they set foot in the Americas.

    Trimonde Go home! to Hipocritia where you belong.

    Trimond, you are not dead. So my informant was wrong. I must acknowledge the error.

    Still full of crap, mind. Buenos Aires was trespassing in 1833. Remember?

    You didn't seriously think that was Trimonde's photograph did you? It's obvious he's Patrick Regini, the style is unmistakable.

    Don't know why anyone would want to pretend to be an Argie-American-Italian stoner, but you can believe what you like. The most aged pokemon appears to be hedging his bets.

    DT - Lock down is being eased although there's still a curfew. Few aircraft are getting in and conditions on all those that do manage to get here include health certificates, health insurance and 14 days in a hotel at the traveller's expense.

    More people are still dying on the roads in a week than have died of the virus in total (57).

    The booze ban was a pain mind.

    Sounds like you're safer there than here, the UK has had a lot more than 57 deaths. How is Thailand gonna cope without the tourist industry, though?

    I can't imagine a booze ban flying here, did people really stick to it?

    Yesterday I asked Trimonde a question:

    Trimonde, are you aware that the Americas have been conquered by Europeans, who have displaced the Americans, and almost extermined them?

    Can somebody please direct me to his indubitably intelligent answer, written before he migrates back home to Europe?

    DT- the booze ban was generally circumvented. The problem arose when the small 'mom&pop' shops started to run out. Fortunately, I had managed to stock up. Could be some months before I need any more.
    The tourist industry is a worry. In effect 20% of Thailand's GDP just stopped throwing thousands out of work. The government is currently seeking a loan to keep itself going.

    Doesn't surprise me. Losing 20% of GDP is a hell of a thing though, and Thailand doesn't seem like the sort of place that's conducive to social distancing. Better hope for a vaccine ASAP.
