Falklands war remembered

Am I just being cynical or is Blair up to no good again???

Considering how dead against the war the Labour party were - considering Tam Dalyell's outbursts - it just seems a bit sus to me.

Don't get me wrong I am all for celebrating the victory as I am sure will our own Falklands veteran who toook potshots with an air rifle at the Argies BUT why I ask myself?

Wonder if it could have anything to do with another war that should never have been started and isn't going too well?

I know JK hates political arguments on here but it's not often I get to talk to Falklanders!!!

I don’t know if this is anything to do with the Argies are once more making claims on the Falkland Islands. And as I very much doubt Mr B would have the same sort of stance as the PM during this “crisis” 25 years ago. Unless the “yanks” went in first.

Mind you I would love to see a certain orange Humber Destroyer taking out the General Belgrano replacement.

Remember, that Tony Blair is the son Margaret Thatcher would have rather given birth to and that he worships the very ground she wobbles on....
