Nigel Parsons BS: Almost 40 years since Falklands War! (131* d) RE: BS: Almost 40 years since Falklands War! 18 Sep 20

A casual scan of Wikipedia articles on the Falkland Islands -- this one Which one? Care to give a link?, on the sovereignty dispute, and related pages linked to it -- shows that whatever benefit Britain ever gained from claiming the Falklands is quickly receding in the rear-view mirror, leaving only the responsibility of honouring the citizenship bestowed on the island group's people in 1983.

A benefit to the UK would be a possible reason for keeping the islands British.
But there is no need to find a benefit to the UK. If the islands wish to remain British then that is sufficient. With no necessary benefit to the UK.
