[Albion] Alexis Mac Allister - *** New Contract Until 2025 ***

Newsflash: A lot of Brits feel that the islands in the Argentinian sea should be Argentinian too, especially the Malvinas. After all, we’d been negotiating the return of the islands for 16 years prior to the war. After the war, it’s become impossible to for a political party to have a sensible debate about it because it upsets vets and the far right too much. In essence, if one of your family died protecting those islands from a dictatorship, you might believe their sacrifice is wasted if the U.K just hand back the rocks. The only solution is time. The Islands will be handed back when Britain has come to terms with losing its empire. The Brexit vote should tell you that it will take many more years for that to happen.

Newsflash: Simon Jenkins is wrong about literally everything! If he thinks we should hand back the Falklands, that alone is a good enough reason not to do it.

What about what the inhabitants feel, doesn’t that matter too?
I don't think the political leadership and identity of the islands is negotiable. It's more the rich resources that have been discovered in the region. It would be sensible to negotiate over those.

We should never forget the Falklands. How under resourced our forces were, how they were put in an almost impossible situation, and how, because of that, their skill and discipline still needed good fortune. The Argentines came within hours of destroying the UK aircraft carriers until the weather intervened. Had they done so things would have been a lot different. That conflict makes me so angry. Our forces lives put on the line because of lazy government foreign policy. And in the end Thatcher stole the credit and the forces efforts were soon turned into a political flag.
