Argentinians should stop being all sooky

The Argentinians are proving that they haven’t learned from history and that they are dumber than a sack of hammers:

Argentina has stepped up its sabre-rattling rhetoric over the Falkland Islands by accusing Britain of sending nuclear missiles to the South Atlantic.

The South American country’s foreign minister claimed that Trident nuclear missiles were being carried on board a submarine deployed to the region by the Royal Navy.

It comes as tensions continue to rise over the islands, which are claimed by the Argentinians as their territory.

The allegation was immediately rebuffed by a senior British diplomat, who also described claims by the Argentinians that military bases on the island could be used to launch attacks on South America as “absurd”.

Hector Timerman, the Argentinian foreign minister, accused the British of sending the nuclear submarine into a nuclear-free zone and lodged a formal protest at the United Nations.

He said Britain was “militarising the region” after the Royal Navy sent one of its most advanced warship to the islands, and as Prince William enters the second week of his six-week tour of duty there as an RAF search and rescue pilot.

If they are going to threaten the Falklands the Poms are going to put a lot of firepower in their way. Everyone knows the Argentinians are about as brave as the Italians and a nuclear armed sub is going to have them quivering with a mixture of outrage and fear, though mostly just fear.

The next best thing the Poms could do would be to dispatch a battalion of Ghurkas to the Falklands. There isn’t anything on earth more frightening than a Ghurka with a kukri out of its sheath.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
