Jack Campin BS: Almost 40 years since Falklands War! (131* d) RE: BS: Almost 40 years since Falklands War! 20 Sep 20


It would also be right to protect them from Fascist Britain now.

I just had a look at the Falklands Islands Government web resources. What you do not see there:

- any sign of democracy; self-determination for the islanders is not remotely on the agenda.

- any sign of meaningful economic benefit from the link to Britain.

- any initiative to maintain economic links with the EU, which has been the mainstay of the islands' economy for a generation.

- any attempt to develop links with Argentina.

The islands are being managed in a Brexiteer style of arrogance and incompetence.

They ARE trying to develop tokenistic links with Chile and Uruguay. Which are so far away with such poor transport links and such poor complementarity of production they will have the same effect as Britain getting its substandard trade deal with New Zealand.
