Falklands open to UN referendum to decide whether Islanders want to remain British

On the verge of the 30th anniversary of the South Atlantic conflict, Governor Haywood told reporters from a French news agency that negotiating with Argentina “makes no sense as long as Buenos Aires keeps denying the Islanders right of self-determination.”

Haywood emphasized that “Argentina is constantly defying the Islanders right of self-determination, hence negotiations are totally pointless.”

------------------
Haywood also unveiled that a referendum to see whether Islanders want to remain British or not could be conducted among Islanders in case the UN ask them to do so, “so we can solve the issue once and for all”.

Haywood said that “Argentina wants to take over a territory skipping the wishes of the local population, and then they feel surprised because PM David Cameron claims they are ‘colonialists’. What is to be a colonialist if not annexing another territory against the wishes and self determination of its people?”

3. The Argies will refuse to recognize a referendum since they know they will lose decisively

But they flogging the dead issue to distract from internal problems.
