    Opinion in Britain remains unchanged as far as I'm aware. If the islanders wish to remain British subjects then the British Government will continue to support their right to self determination.

    I'm sure this pisses Argentina off, but I'm not sure there's a solution. Either Argentina has to back off, or the islanders have to change their minds, or Parliament has to change policy 180 degrees. I don't see any of those 3 happening any time soon.

    Never said it would change anything, just pointing out the obvious for our "well informed" :rolleyes: OP. :D

    (Yes, there's a pun involved there too.........).

    On the 30th anniversary of the conflict, now is not the time for sabre rattling. Now is the time to remember the fallen...of both sides.

    Well said. :clap2:

    Video brings the memories flooding back. Surprising perhaps that so many of the images are still so vivid to me after so many years.
