    Congratulations Malvinas..., I luuuuuv Ping Pong...

    - Just one question...
    “Table Tennis Federation welcomes their 227th member”..., article says...
    The United Nations currently recognizes 197 States..., right...?
    The very same United Nations has listed 17 Non-Self-Governing Territories (Malvinas included ;-)...
    That gives us a grand total of 214..., right...

    Now..., if 227 ÷ 214 = 13...
    Anyone can figure out who them 13 mysterious suplus national members of thee ITTF are...?

    Chuckle..., chuckle...

    Ah, Tunk .... last I read from you was about Russia merely holding exercises on its own side of the Ukrainian border and no cause for complaint.

    How's that going?

    This Falklands Islands 'identity' is getting madder and madder - like something from a Monty Python film. Now its international table tennis - tomorrow membership of international association of quantum computing? I wonder what future historians will make of this laughable post-colonial nostalgia in the UK.

    Now..., now..., Mr. Pytangua...

    PING-PONG seems to be for some Engrishmen GLOBAL PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE..., more so that the UNITED NATIONS or the United States...

    Just listen (at minute 1:56) to what their BoJo Prime Minister said last Christmas...:

    “... 2021 was the year in which even the International Table Tennis Federation recognized..., in the face of noisy protests from some quarters..., the inviolable sovereignty of Falkland Island....ahhh... . Falklands table tennis players and Whiff-Whaffers.”

    What a Great Brutish Whiff-Whaffer thisBoris is...!
    Chuckle..., chuckle...

    One thing we can be certain of is that the International Table Tennis Federation is of a far greater “Global Paramount Importance” than Argentina.

    Decades of lies, whinging, a failed and humiliating invasion, more whinging, more lies....and to what progress? Nothing....zilch.....The islands are still a British Overseas Territory.

    Capische...??

    chuckle

    Ah..., Copper .... three days 'ave gone and I can see that you can't point were you read from me “about Russia merely holding exercises on its own side of the Ukrainian border and no cause for complaint...”

    - No surprise really..., that umpteenth porky of yours is perfectly in line with your “Timeline”...

    Capisce...?
