I dunno about you lot but with the Royal Navy fuckulated by Messrs Brown and Blair, the RAF reduced to winding elastic bands and the Army chasing rag-heads in the ‘stan and a community organiser in The White House this was bound to happen.
The Falklands are British. The international legal position here is very clear. This need not go to the UN. This is no business of Ban Ki Moon or Hugo-bastarding-Charvez.
We don’t have the Norwegians trying to lay claim to the Shetlands or the French making a play for Jersey do we? Our case is pure titanium here.
So The Argentinians want to cut-up rough by imposing an Imperial rule over our stuff. And yes, folks this is about imperialism and it’s coming from Latin America and not these shores. We didn’t grab those islands from the Argentinians – the only bipedal thing there when we pitched-up were penguins: the population speak English and think of themselves as British and any oil-drilling within our territorial waters is a matter for the Falkland Island’s government and the companies involved.
And that has fuck all to do with Argentina, Latin America, Ban Ki Moon, the UN or Hugo-fucking-Chavez.
So Barackkk won’t back-us up? Hardly surprising seeing as he clearly despises even his own country let alone ours. And we’ll get fuck-all help from our current official “best-pals” of the EU will we? So why are we palling-up with them then? A new strategic alliance with the French has recently been mooted. Oh, behave! Because otherwise I shall have to visit the patent office with my idea for a chocolate teapot.
If I am not very much mistaken we are gonna see a national embarrassment on the scale of Suez. Is Gordoom loving it I wonder? Well if the actual humiliation happened under the early days of the rule of iDave with a small majority…
Think of it as the inverse of the “Falklands Factor” that aided Maggie in ’83.
And if you think I’m being unduly cynical then consider this. It is probably too late this year for Argentina to launch a military operation so we are looking at 2011 with a Tory government and would you put it past Mandelson to have not considered the utility of this possibility in propelling Labour back to power in short order?
We lost the Falklands under the Tories, vote Labour.
