Their right to be British? Do me a favour - the Falkanders don't even pay UK tax and most would rather walk over barbed wire bare foot than have anything to do with Britain. No they are quite happy to live on the other side of the world thank you very much but their ancestral connection comes in handy when it comes to us spilling our blood on their behalf.
These islands are a millstone round our neck - unless there is oil or some other strategic use. If there is oil I hope we keep every last ounce of revenue. It might just meet the cost of protecting these benighted islands.
It's a shame Argentina is being such an ass because otherwise I would say 'here take them'. With the proviso that all the little Falklanders who so want to be British can put their money where their mouth is and come and live in Britain.

I really hope the UK does not enter another war. I have always wondered why the UK has such an interested in those islands? Can anyone explain ?

After re-reading this thread.. I must say.. VERY proud to be British right now..
We are a country and a people who will indeed go to war on point of principle..
History has proved that already... WW2 we could have said screw you Poland but no.. We honoured our treaties and for most of the duration we stood alone against tyranny..
The Falklands war was another example of British.. All Britain.. England, NI, Scotland Wales.. Troops and regiments fighting for principle rather than profit..
I think the world could learn a lesson from that.. Because even now.. The most ardent anti war British citizen.. Would still put combats on and fight for what is right.. And what is ours..
Very very proud of you.. And though I have had pity parties in the past about fighting for this country... I have have to say after reading this thread... YOU ARE ALL WORTH IT...
I am the happiest of all Britains today... Thanks
