According to the Daily Telegraph, Madonna’s ex squeeze Sean Penn, has been boxing in matters well above his intellectual microbe-weight. When I say well above I’m not talking stratospheric, I’m talking lunar orbit. Hollywoodland has rich deposits of stupid which are exploited on a daily basis and exported to the world’s political stages and media by the megaton. Lucky Penn has discovered a seam of pure moronite and is currently fracking for all he’s worth. The dense mineral is extremely toxic which might explain why he is totally nucking and completely futz:
Sean Penn has accused Britain of colonialism and urged the government to open negotiations with Argentina over the Falkland Islands.
Penn is Tinsel Town’s self appointed ambassador to Argentina. Ah, bless. And he’s discovered a big word too: colonialism. Gosh. And now he’s stamping his feet in anger and pointing his self-important and pig ignorant world renowned US diplomat digit of dumb doom at li’l old Britain. Oh, my.
At a meeting with Argentine president Cristina Kirchner, the Left-wing Hollywood actor referred to the islands “the Malvinas Islands of Argentina” and said Britain should entered into a UN-sponsored dialogue over their sovereignty.
No, we shouldn’t. The UN supported Britain following the Argentinian aggression thirty years ago. As did NATO and the Commonwealth, Even the Organisation of American States refused to come out in favour of Argentina.
“The world today is not going to tolerate any ludicrous and archaic commitment to colonialist ideology,” he said during the meeting in Buenos Aires.
I’m so glad to hear that. I mean, no tolerant nation would consider launching a ludicrous, pre-emptive strike against a foreign state in order to consolidate an archaic commitment to colonialist ideology would they. Oh, wait…
“I know I came in a very sensitive moment in terms of diplomacy between Argentina and the UK over the Malvinas islands.
That explains the dignified, statesmanlike air wanking at the beginning of the DT video. No getting off to Page Three or Playmate of the Month for Mr. Penn. I guess that Cristina must be a real hottie, eh?
“And I hope that diplomats can establish true dialogue in order to solve the conflict as the world today cannot tolerate ridiculous demonstrations of colonialism.
Here’s some dialogue for you, Mr. Penn. Sod off and mind your own bleeding business and pass the message along to Hillary Rodham Clinton and that muppet you call a President while you’re at it. I’m sorry I can’t be more diplomatic but you see I find it hard to tolerate being lectured to by a mental pygmy ridiculous demonstrations of hand-wringing, no-nowt, lefty bollocks.
“The way of dialogue is the only way to achieve a better solution for both nations,” he said, according to the Buenos Aires Herald.
We’ve already tried that. It didn’t work. It was Kirchner herself who told Gordon Brown back in 2009 that there would be no further dialogue regarding the sovereignty of the Falklands because, as far as she was concerned, the mineral deposits islands were the property of Argentina, so there. The 1995 agreement between the UK and Argentina regarding joint oil exploration was ripped up by Argentina’s then president, Kirchner’s husband, almost five years ago. It was undiluted hubris; an infantile dummy throwing exercise. The only acceptable solution, according to Kirchner, is the complete surrender of UK sovereignty over the Falklands, or else. Oh, and to stop exploiting the mineral wealth that belongs to Argentina forthwith. I guess Penn was too busy rewriting history stretching the boundaries of improbable and clichéd scenarios to breaking point starring in movies to notice. We should be grateful that Mr. Penn has taken time out of his busy schedule to act on his lady friend’s behalf.

And with the addition of Cristina Mr. Penn is well on the way to collecting a comprehensive set of Latin American Loonies. Will a feature film be far behind?
The [British] government has consistently refused to take part in any negotiations over the status of the islands, saying that they will remain a British territory as long a majority of the 3,000 islanders wish them to.
That’s because Argentina isn’t interested in negotiating, Kirchner herself having made that perfectly clear in 2009, so what’s the point in opening a unilateral negotiation?
Last week, Argentina submitted a formal complaint to the UN, accusing Britain of “militarising” the South Atlantic by sending HMS Dauntless, the Royal Navy’s most advanced ship, to the region.
Yeah, it’s one thing for Argentinian ships to stop and search merchant vessels heading for the Falklands. Having the cojones to stop and search HMS Dauntless is something else. Let’s not mention Argentina’s sabre rattling which has a history of turning into pre-emptive armed conflict. Let’s also not mention its own “militarising” of the South Atlantic, policing and delaying merchant vessels carrying vital supplies of fresh fruit and vegetables to the Falklands. Many captains, frustrated by the delays, turn back, their cargoes undelivered. Falkland islanders are being deprived of vital nutrition. What’s the UN going to do about that?
Tensions between the two nations are running high as the 30th anniversary of the Falklands War approaches.
And if the Argies decide to kick off a second time we’ll be waiting for them.
It’s interesting that Penn has taken a stand against colonialism. When you look at Argentina’s ethnicity it is (quoting Wiki): 86.4% European (mostly Spanish and Italian), 8.5% Mestizo (mixed native and European), 3.3% Arab, 1.6% Amerindian and 0.4% Asian and others. Indigenous people make up less than 2% of the population thanks to mass European colonialism? Shome mishtake, shurely?
Argentina declared Independence from Spain in 1816 and claims it “inherited” the Falklands from Spain at this time. That’s right, the same Spain responsible for colonising South America and subjugating the indigenous peoples. Perhaps Mr Penn should insist that Cristina hand back the land stolen from the original inhabitants in order to make amends? No? I mean. this anti-colonialism works both ways, yes? And while he’s at it he can make an appointment with Hillary and demand that the US is returned to its original owners. And that includes Tinsel Town.
