Things could start hotting up out there. The Falklands or Malvinas as the Argies call them, 310 miles from Argentina, is under increased threat again after oil and gas was found through drilling. The thing is, the last time the Argies moved on the Falklands we were a much bigger in military might and was always going to win in the end. This time, we are not. We don't have the aircraft carriers that are crucial to remove an invading force from those islands, and protect any type of war ships, personnel or supply ships we send. So they can invade at will, or they could wait for the oil rig to be built and send their jets or war ships to destroy it. The USA wouldn't back us up over this one. Oh dear. They could have us by the goolies this time.


On a much less serious note, why don't we keep the Falklands, but let them have Canvey?
