Yes, they aren't too keen on handing Ceuta over to Morocco either, are they?

No, surely it was Spain which gave Argentina back to its people.

"Somewhat reluctant" I would say!

It wasn't a serious suggestion but Argentina's claim to the Falklands is related (at least in part) to the notion that they were there about 200 years ago, i.e. about the time Spain was still ruling Argentina.
Incidentally, I may be wrong, but isn't Argentina primarily made up of European (especially Spanish and Italian) immigrants and their descendants?

Yes, there was that wonderful catholic genocide of native americans in south America.

The liberation of which was in part achieved by arguably the greatest sailor ever- Cochrane.

...and who on the Falklands is being oppressed?

Don't they have a welsh speaking population in the extreme south of Argentina? I seem to recall that the Welsh Parliament appointed an Argentinian welsh speaker as their welsh language guru????

Hi Spin, what about NI? Talking of things Irish, I have a passion for Celtic design. When in Ireland i love visiting jewellers looking for unusual designs. I found a lovely little shop in Donegal Town where a jewellers makes beautiful designs, some based on the Book of Kells. I think it s interesting the way designers have been able to give traditional Celtic design a contemporary nature. The intricacies of the designs, together with its symbolic significance is what appeals.

Very good post, ROma.

I am posting Spin's here again since it was deleted and yet makes far more contribution to the argument than most:
"How do all you anti-religious experts in church politics know what went on behind the scenes? British atheists know more about church politics than the clergy and laity living under such conditions? They consider the caution of the church to be more immoral than the US involvement in supporting such governmental dictatorships even to this day? If you value and consider so well the rights of the Argentinians, hand over the Falklands."

Terrific recap.... Shame you did not reprint my refutation of this also... but then what price bias?

Greetings, this could be of interest to you, "Dover" an American book publisher has a considerable catalogue of copyright free designs for all manner of crafters. Each volume is devoted to specific motives and/or styles. Celtic design is/was covered quite well if you specifically want access to thousands of designs specially designed to meet the requirements of artists and crafters and all copyright free,this is a good resource to investigate.

You are more than welcome.

Yeah, they're concentrated in one small area I think. I saw a programme on TV about Patagonia that mentioned it. Very strange, a bit like an inverse Portmeirion.

Spin, as much as you might like to think it's the case, I don't think you're getting voted down because of some conspiracy involving this 'forum mafia' or because the people can't handle the truth you present them with. It's a nice theory though ;-)

Why not put it to the test? Try arguing for atheism for a bit and see how you do.

Or not post complete bollox the entire time. That works well. Maybe if you and spin tried it occassionally you might not get deleted? Just a thought.

I see your ploy here. You know you'll be voted down, thus proving your point. I'm onto you, Diane ;-)
