The truth is that we thought that in '82 but the Argies were too impatient to wait a few years for a negotiated settlement. The retaking by task force was an armed response to the school bully by the very strict headmistress of the time. It became a matter of international prestige to retake them and of course it guaranteed a walkover election win for the bossy head mistress.
The 1982 response to the 'Argies' actions was quite appropriate for the time. But I felt then and more so now the administration/dependancy of island populations on the globe should be taken care of by the nearest democratic state- with due recognitions of the wishes and heritage of the incumbant population.
I believe that at this moment in all of our lives the Economy the financial world the Political system & just about everything that makes us who we are and where we live is changing & in most cases NOT for the best, the last 2 years have been so exhausting for everyone, The Falkland's maybe be something the mp's will look at as a money saver & decide to cut its defences & tbh it wouldn't surprise me one bit!
My local council (HULL) was given a £40 million cut last year which saw about a 1000 people lose their jobs, just in the last week the government have told my council to expect another £50 Million pound cut & there just isn't anyway a council can operate normally without its key staff and having cuts to this amount!
This will mean huge cuts in services huge amounts of more job losses & of cause the people that are lucky to be kept on will have their workload multiplied massively... It will be worryingly interesting to see where we all are in another two years!
