Return to the Falkland Islands

Ms Fernández de Kirchner, the President of Argentina, has claimed that the British rig which has begun drilling for oil off the coast of the Falklands Islands violates its sovereignty.

It is widely thought that this is a diversionary tactic to take the Argentinean public’s mind off its Government’s economic failures.

The Falkland Islands are 300 miles from the Argentine coast, giving the oil rig a wide berth of at least 100 miles before it enters Argentine waters. The people of the Falkland Islands have repeatedly expressed their desire to remain a British Overseas Territory and the last time Argentina violated the Falkland Islander’s right to self determination we had to send a Task Force to recover the Islands.

Britain’s sovereignty over these islands is, and shall remain indisputable.

    This all looks and sounds very familiar.

    The real question is, if it comes to it, would the present Government have the courage to do what is necessary to save the islands’ independence?
