Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, President of Argentina, has asked the UK to return the Falklands -
As far as I can see her argument can be summarised as:
1) The UK used to be a big colonial meanie.
2) The Falklands used to belong to Argentina.
3) The UK is 8,700 miles away from the Falklands.
4) The UK is still a big colonial meanie.
Now, 1) and 4) are irrelevant. 2) is factually incorrect as Argentina didn't exist in 1833 (the Argentine Confederation was around then) and 3) is
also irrelevant as the Falklands is 250-odd miles away from Argentina so it ain't exactly close to it. By the same argument The Channel Islands
belong to France, Corsica belongs to Italy and The Faeroes belong to the UK.
The UK's PM, David Cameron, has already told Argentina to get stuffed - www.bbc.co.uk...
