    Arrogant Argie Rant? Where Else But The Guardian? 

    The issue of the Falkland Islands was settled properly 40 years ago….

    ….when invaders from Argentina were soundly thrashed and expelled from the British territory they’d briefly occupied.

    The population, British by birth and allegiance, were delighted.

    So were the British back home…


    …who recognised Maggie Thatcher’s heroic success in defeating squalid imperialist adventurism.

    End of a glorious story.

    But not for the Guardian.

    That leftist rag this weekend affords the defeated enemy a chance to strut his stuff, 40 years on.

    No Argentine government will cease in its pursuit of our sovereign claim

    Santiago Cafiero, Argentina’s Foreign Minister, just hasn’t got the message. 

    ...we must be aware that without a frank and constructive dialogue regarding the South Atlantic…



    The UK should slap on a few sanctions.

    And also stop wasting tax-payers’ money on the UN…



    …which has been deliberately encouraging the recalcitrance of one government after another in Buenos Aires, as Senor Cafiero makes crystal clear!

    Falklands – Red China’s Brazen Anti-British Enmity! 

    I get emails from all kinds of sources, some of which are agreeable, others not, but I try to read them all and glean any verifiable info that readers ought to know.

    Hence today, this –

    Argentine President Alberto Fernández met Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader Xi Jinping in Beijing on Feb. 6 2022, and Chinese state media reported that 

    “Argentina reaffirms its adherence to the one-China principle, whereas China reaffirms its support for Argentina’s demand for the full exercise of sovereignty over the Malvinas Islands.”



    Since Adolf Xi is a totalitarian tyrant who wouldn’t dream of allowing his own subjects an iota of self-determination –

    • – not a hint of free elections in the “Chinese People’s Republic….”



    …since Mao the Monster took control in 1949 – it should comes as no surprise that Beijing despises the right of the Brits on the Falklands….

    ….to live under government of their own choosing.

    But how has Jellyfish Johnson responded to this arrogant and hostile declaration?

    How many goods are still being imported from the ‘CPR?’

    Boycott Red China!

      There is a risk we get so wrapped up with Russia that we forget everyone’s common enemy.
      Communist China is dangerous and will continue to be, until the Communists are thrown out.

    As Macron & Merkel Stab Britain In The Back, Trump Stays True! 

    What else could we expect?


    • EU members abstain as Britain defeated in UN vote on Chagos Islands


    The UK has suffered a humiliating defeat at the United Nations general assembly in a vote over decolonisation…


    Sounds like another re-run of those UN pukes’ hypocritical declarations of solidarity with Argie expansionism.

    United Nations Day? Scrap That Organised Hypocrisy! 

    But it’s not.

    This time the double standards are aimed at Britain’s residual hold over disputed territory in the Indian Ocean. 

    It’s the Chagos, not the Falkland, Islands this time, and if you had never heard of the former, join the club.

    Actually, I was vaguely aware of them, but no more than that. Much the same, I strongly suspect, as a lot of the dimwit Third World dingbats among  the 94 UN delegates who supported a Mauritian-backed resolution this past week.


    But at least those Third Worlders had backbone enough to make up their minds whose side they’re on.

    The same can’t be said for  Britain’s back-stabbing EU partners.



    Even the Guardian report notes that these swine might have been expected to vote in support of another bloc member.

    DEJA VU!

    Falklands Pride, Yes, but Reflect on EU Back-Stabbing  

    Ratbags who ordered their UN ambassadors to abstain included Muppet Macron, Mama Stasi Merkel, Red Tsipras…

    ‘Mais oui, Geli, I will compensate les Anglais by giving them all the crimmigrants from Calais!’  

    ‘Ach, Du bist mein perfect Muppetchen!’


    ….and other Euro-Turds from Spain, Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands, Estonia, Latvia, and Finland.

    Speaking of turds, Justin Turdo placed Canada in the abstention box too.


    PLEASE NOTE, Donald Trump’s USA stood by Britain, one of only 15 nations with the guts and integrity to face down the decolon deadbeats.


    The Mauritian representative at the UN said: “I’m elated. The results are beyond my expectations. It’s interesting that the EU didn’t support the UK….”

    How much aid does his third-rate country get from UK tax-payers? Would he still be elated if the largesse were cut off tomorrow, which it should be, if his mangy ingrate government doesn’t apologise and stop whining?

    But that’s by the way.

    The real issue is why Theresa May still expects her wittering to be taken seriously. Only this week she came out with this drivel about the ‘European Union,’ via the Queen’s Speech.

    We will continue to be reliable partners, willing allies and close friends.

    Close friends?

    Corbyn's "One of Ours," Say Argies! 

    A friend to every country but his own, words that apply to most liberals, and this week certainly to Jeremy Corbyn, of whom the Argentine Ambassador says –  



    two of a kind…


    “He is one of ours!”

    And Senora Castro has good reason to be delighted, for Comrade Corbyn has forsworn the pledge of self-determination which every British party leader has endorsed, since the Falklands Liberation War ended in 1982.

    • falklands
    • “He is saying that dialogue [is] possible and that attitudes are beginning to change, that what was achieved in Northern Ireland can be achieved also here!”

    There are, so far as I know, no Argies living on those British islands in the South Atlantic, so what was achieved in Northern Ireland, power-sharing between decent Brits and a substantial treasonous minority, would be hard to effect.


    • What Corbyn and Castro seem to be talking about is a revival of the appeasement scheme promoted by the late Foreign Office fop, Francis Pym, handing partial control of UK sovereign territory to an alien and aggressive foreign country, under the auspices of the United Nations.

    Yes, UKIP! Never Forget Brussels’ Back-Stabs in the Falklands War! 

    Good to see UKIP MEP Mike Hookem, a guy with a good record of setting the record straight- Wanna Go Clubbing? Calais’s The New Hot Spot!  – knows who Britain’s enemies really are!




    “While Jeremy Corbyn’s ideas on defence and security have the potential to seriously damage to the scope of action and capability of the UK’s armed forces, the creation of a combined EU army would leave the Falkland Islands wide open for the Argentinians to simply walk back in.”




    “Can you see the French – who were happy to supply the Argentinians with Exocet anti-ship missiles and Mirage fighter jets – or the German’s allowing EU troops to be sent in defence of the Falklands? I certainly don’t think so!”   http://www.ukip.org/eu_army_biggest_threat_to_the_security_of_the_falklands

    Nor should any Brit think so!

    Back in 1982, when Brits were fighting and dying in defence of self-determination, the UK’s European partners were up to their necks in betrayal, viz that leak from French Foreign Minister Cheysson’s office, quoting his opinion that Britain’s policy was based on ‘self-conceit’ and an ‘instinctive contempt’ for Latins.


     Mitterand and Cheysson


    Mitterand, far from disowning his anti-British appointee, declared that there should be ‘no question of punishing Argentina.’   

    Oh, and then there was Klaus Bolling, who popped up like a demonic jack-in-the-box, this time with the sonorous warning that his government would be ‘deeply dismayed if there was no final attempt’ to avoid a British victory.


    Schmidt and Bolling


    Nobody today remembers Bolling, but he was the appointed spokesman for Helmut Schmidt, then Chancellor of Germany, who died recently, buried with full honours.

    Not so honourable, though, was Schmidt’s betrayal of hs ally, when his government, with sanctions still on place – for what they were worth – called for a halt to the liberation of the Falklands.

    After all, Schmidt had not disowned his Employment minister, Heinz Westphal, who had proclaimed that it was ‘inconceivable and incomprehensible’ that war should be fought for the preservation of the islanders’ rights

    British people around at the time will indeed remember “Europe’s” back-stabbing! It’s all on record, with a lot more here...

    Falklands Pride, Yes, but Reflect on EU Back-Stabbing 

    But yes, that was years ago.

    The question today, as the EUSSR referendum looms, is whether, with Schmidt replaced by Mama Stasi Merkel …


    .Hasil gambar untuk CDU raperefugees


    …and Francois Hollande sitting in the chair once occupied by Mitterand, following Mama’s lead like a lapdog, in a show of contempt for democratic principles…Hollande opens French doors to refugees despite … …is this.

    In all honesty, do you believe these sell-outs, who sell out their own, would even for a moment hesitate to sell out the British islanders in the South Atlantic.
    EU - referendum vote
    Another thought to ponder when the vote is held this year.

    Sponging Argies Splurge on Fighter-Bombers – Bring Them To Heel! 

    Good article about one of the better British MPs, Andrew Rosindell, at Tax-Payers’ Alliance http://www.taxpayersalliance.com/campaign/2014/11/justine-greening-reaffirms-stance-funding-argentina.html

    I offer you a brief extract. 

    The World Bank board endorsed a new country strategy for Argentina on the 9th of September, envisioning over $3 billion in new loans to the country. Amazingly, a country this deep in debt has seen fit to spend approximately $1.6 billion on 24 advanced Saab Gripen fighter-bomber aircrafts, as Mr Rosindell pointed out in Parliament.

    The politicians in Buenos Aires won’t honour their financial obligations, and expect BRITS to join the bail-out?

    After what the Argies did, and despite the absence of any apologies for their aggression?

    • falklands


    One and a half billion! On fighter-bombers? Who are they planning to attack?

    We understand that a World Bank vote in December is to decide on new loans to Argentina. It is crucial that the UK government takes a strong position at that vote, so that the result of the vote is a no….


    And Britain needs to go further, in the face of THIS new Argie arrogance!.



    Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner holds a plaque before delivering a speech during a ceremony to mark the 30th Anniversary of the 1982 South Atlantic war between Argentina and the Britain over the Falkland Islands

    Argie  President


    Argentina’s decision to display signs expressing the country’s claim over the Falklands is “regrettable”, a diplomatic source has said. 

    A law passed by the Argentine Congress says public transport must have signs saying “Las Malvinas son Argentinas” (the Falkland Islands are Argentine).

    The Argentine MP behind the initiative said it would reflect “our undeniable sovereignty” over the islands.  

    Falkland Islands are Argentine signs ‘regrettable’ BBC News 22/11/14


    Unless the Argentine regime formally renounces its imperialist ambitions and recognises that, under the principle of self-determination, the Falkland Islands are British and will always be so, not a red cent of UK tax-payers’ money should fall into their grubby little paws.

    United Nations Day? Scrap That Organised Hypocrisy! 

    October 24th, United Nations Day!

    Let’s not be unreasonable.


    Let civilised countries, like Canada, Australia, the UK, the USA (and of course others) give the UN two chances to show it isn’t an organised hypocrisy.

    ONE – UN Decolonisation Committee.

    Remove the Falkland Islands from their agenda ( since 90% of Falklanders are happy to stay British)  from their agenda…

    Tibet_map Red China,the largest colonialist power in the world


    TWO- Human Rights Council

    Remove countries that are oblivious or hostile to human rights. For a start, Cuba, Red China, Saudi Arabia and Vietnam must be replaced by countries which, unlike them, afford their citizens basic democratic rights, viz. free elections and a free press.


    communism tyranny


    No free election has been held in China since 1949,  when the Communists took power; same goes for Cuba, 1959, and Vietnam, 1975, whilst Saudi Arabia is and always has been an absolute monarchy.

    It’s a sick joke that such tyrannies sit on any body concerned with human rights. if the UN does not remedy these anomalies, decent democracies should exit the UN, and pay not a penny more in dues.

    If that happened, the UN would be bankrupt inside a month.  

    End of a loud-sounding nothing.
