Argies told to nick off

The Falkland Islanders have voted. The Argies cop one in the cods – big time.  Time to retreat with their tail between their legs, just like in 1982.

Defiant Falkland Islanders voted overwhelmingly last night to remain part of the United Kingdom.

Some 1,517 British citizens out of a population of about 2,900 cast their ballots in the landmark poll. The yes votes numbered 1,513 while only three voted no to remaining part of the UK.

David Cameron today called on Argentina to respect the wishes of the people of the Falkland Islands after they voted overwhelmingly to remain a British overseas territory. 

The Prime Minister said that Argentina should take ‘careful note’ of the referendum result and that Britain would always be there to defend the Falkland Islanders.

Although the result of the referendum was widely seen as a foregone conclusion, the landslide delivered a resounding message.

Nigel Haywood, governor of the Falkland Islands, said the referendum was a ‘massive demonstration of the way the Falkland Islanders feel and of the way they see their future’.

    Argentinians:- After getting an electric shock this intellectual infant, insists on getting the knife out to put into the wall socket AGAIN!!!

    The Argies, being stupid, have said the referendum is “utterly meaningless”. So really they don’t give a shit about the wishes of the islanders, just their own ambitions.

    Unfortunately the Spanish speaking population of the US will soon be the biggest grouping there and they all vote Democrat. Eventually there will be a 2nd Gen Spanish Speaking US citizen in the White House and they will not back the Brits.
    Obama is now worse than Jimmy Carter and that is saying something. What the Brits need to do is get the oil flowing asap whilst Argentina is in the ahit. Wait a few years and they will get arms from the US and here we go again
