Looks like you don't know what cut to the chase means, as you followed it up with a long ramble;
Heres an example of cutting to the chase.
The inhabitants of the Falklands have their livelihoods invested in the place, it is their home and for most of them has been their and their
ancestors home for approaching 200 years and they do not want to be ruled by a country that has never previously ruled them, except for a brief and
illegal takeover 30 years ago, and is over 300 miles away from them.
Now, to continue;
Following the irrelevant blah blah blah with which you avoided most of my questions to you, you said;
No - best leave all that tub-thumping, lager-lout xenophobia to the dumbass Brits.
Just how wrong can you be?
Only Argentina is doing any tub thumping (about taking possession of the Falklands) and displaying xenophobia.
The Falklanders just want to be left alone, the UK has merely promised to defend their rights to choose their own path IF required to do so. You
cannot possibly have failed to see that point.
And if people disagree with you they're 'knuckledraggers', are they?
Oh, PLEASE do explain how you take that inference from the words I wrote. Or did you take it personally because you yourself cannot handle the fact
that Britain is built upon immigration and always has been?
Yes I was wrong to say Celts, their arrival on these isles was far too recent for me to use them as an example, I was merely trying to point out that
humanity didn't spontaneously ping into existence here and since the first arrivals came, that process has never stopped.
Now, can you address any of the previously made points or not?
Specifically, I would like to see you justify how an artificially created nation state has a 'natural entitlement' to something 300 miles off its
coast? That should be fun.
Oh, and please again, do explain why you feel proximity matters specifically in relation to the Falklands but not so much anywhere else.
Why are you against the islanders having self determination? Whatever you might feel the reason is we are backing them, why don't YOU want them to
