Falklandsøerne forbliver britiske

Folkeafstemningen på Falklandsøerne viser som forventet en massiv opbakning til at forblive en selvstyrende britisk koloni.

Kun tre stemte imod. I alt støttede 98,8 procent støtter tilhørsforholdet og 1513 stemte for at fastholde forbindelsen til London som hidtil, viser officielle tal.

According to 2006 Census fi gures, the Falklands population (excluding people affiliated with the
military garrison) is 2,478. 2,115 people live in Stanley, equivalent to 85% of the total population
of the Falklands.
• 54% of the current population was born in the Falkland Islands
• 25% of the population are of British descent
• 14% of the population are of St Helenian descent
• 5% of the population are of Chilean descent

On BBC News, the reporter said he had spoken to one lady from Brazil who lives on the Islands and that she would be voting to stay under british sovereignty. Says it all really.

Se her, hvem der støtter argentinerne i deres krav på øerne, det øger kun min støtte til øboerne. I øvrigt er det argentinske folk, som nægter Falklandsøernes befolknings ret til selvbestemmelse, kolonisatorer og udryddere af indfødte i stor stil. Og de kontrollerede ikke store områder af det nuværende Argentina før længe efter Falklandsøerne var britisk territorium (og de havde udryddet endnu flere indianere). Jeg tror oven i købet, at jeg hørte DDR i mandags på DR2 kalde Falklanderne(?) for imperialister 🙂

DDR og Pølletiken angiver valgresultatet forkert – ‘Yes’ procenten er 99,8% og ikke 98,8%.

    Of course, the real story here is President Kirchner’s shameless attempt to create a foreign conflict that will overshadow high inflation, new price controls on food, strict currency controls, labor unrest, teacher strikes,declining press freedom, widespread corruption, rising crime, and creeping autocracy. It is hard to overstate what a mess Kirchner has made of Argentina’s economy, and the International Monetary Fund recentlycensured her government for doctoring its official inflation and GDP data. Meanwhile, Argentina has agreed to whitewash the 1994 Iranian-backed bombing of the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association building in Buenos Aires. For that matter, Argentina has also dramatically increased its exports to Iran (which rose by 937 percent in 2011).

    Thus, by refusing to support British sovereignty over the Falklands, the Obama administration is emboldening a thuggish, quasi-authoritarian regime that is undercutting U.S. efforts to isolate the Iranian theocracy. We should also note that Kirchner has pursued an aggressively anti-U.S. foreign policy. Indeed, since the beginning of 2011, her government has accused Washington of running torture schools, has petulantly seized equipment from a U.S. military plane, and has threatened U.S. banks for assisting British oil exploration in the Falklands.

    With inflation estimated at 26 percent and labor unions angrily demanding higher wages, Agence France-Presse reports that Kirchner’s approval rating is “plummeting.” Argentina has national legislative elections scheduled for October, so the government is desperate to shift attention away from the economy and onto the Falklands. Right now, the Obama administration is making it much easier for Buenos Aires to prolong the dispute with London and rally regional support across Latin America. It is well past time for Washington to recognize British sovereignty over the islands and tell Kirchner to stop her campaign of intimidation.
