God Bless The Falkland Islands

It seems like yesterday but it was thirty years ago that the military dictator of Argentina, General Galtieri, sent his troops to invade the Falkland Islands.

We can only thank God that we had a government then, with Mrs Thatcher at the helm, that was prepared to fight for freedom and democracy.

We owe a huge debt of thanks to all who fought for the freedom of the Falklands, especially those who gave their lives or were wounded.

The one thing that should be sounded out loud and clear today, as well as every other day, is that it is up to the Falkland Islanders themselves, not our government or the Argentine government, to decide their future.
