Cameron tells the Argies to nick off

The Prime Minister said that he had spent a “serious amount of time” ensuring the security of the Falklands amid renewed Argentinian hostility over the islands.

Last month, the Argentinian president called for urgent talks over the future of the islands and South American countries banned ships from the Falklands using their ports.

The Duke of Cambridge will begin a tour of duty in the islands next month and the Argentineans appear to be determined to use the 30th anniversary of the Falklands War this year to “sabre rattle”.

However, Mr Cameron said that he would never surrender the islands.

“We must never put them at risk,” he said. “We must make sure our defences are strong, and that’s exactly what we’re doing. There’s no question of negotiating; there’s no question of the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands. We also need to build strong relationships with all countries in South America, and we’re doing that.”

The American’s have offered to mediate between Britain and Argentina, but given David Cameron’s statements there is little point. The Argies can just nick off out of the Falklands.
