LETTER: Hands off the Falklands, Argentina

The outcome of the Falklands Islands referendum has sent a clear message to Argentina.

The resounding referendum result should surely put an end to Argentina’s frankly arrogant and unfounded claims over the Falkland Islands.

The citizens of the Falklands have a right to self-determination and have quite clearly told the world they wish to remain British. 99.8% backed Britain.

Never before has the voice of democracy shouted so loud. If Argentina refuses to accept the result of this referendum then the world will be watching and judging.

PAUL NUTTALL,

UKIP North West MEP
