Welsh First Minister Embroiled in ‘Malvinas’ Row

Slow clap for the Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones, who for some reason thought it would be a good idea to get pally with loony tune Argentinian ambassador Alicia Castro this week. Predictably, the Argies wanted to score points about the Falklands. Less predictably, Jones went along with it. This is from the press release sent out by the Argentinian embassy after the meeting with a chirpy-looking Carwyn:

“Alicia Castro praised the integration of the Welsh community in Argentina as an example of the hospitality that Argentina affords British descendents, which refutes the propaganda from a sector of the Malvinas Islands’ inhabitants portraying Argentina as hostile, in an attempt to justify the UK government’s refusal to resolve the sovereignty dispute.”

Wonder how well this will go down with the Welsh Guards and survivors of the Sir Galahad bombing, which saw 48 men killed in an Argentinian attack…

    Animal says:

    Carwyn Jones was acting in good faith but he really should have seen this coming from a nation mired in debt and desperate to get its grasping hands on the natural resources in the Falklands. If there was nothing in the seas round the islands Argentina would not be remotely bothered now. Jones should have been much more careful before allowing this to get any form of publicity.

    As for the Argentine Ambassador, shame on her for describing a 99% vote to remain independent as a ‘sector of inhabitants’ .

    Oh yes, let’s do. Walk away and let the islanders continue to face harrassment, interference in their affairs and deliberate obstruction of trade by a nation desperate to grab the money from energey resources in the seas to shore up it’s own failed socialist dream. Let’s run away and let a self-governing nation be invaded and forced to live under a flag they have expressedly said they don’t want to see flying over their heads.

    Patagonia is a region of Argentina whose inhabitants have always resented domination by Argentina and now we see an independence movement gaining momentum. How will the central Argentinian regime respond I wonder? We dont hear much if anything about this from the media, I wonder why, could it be that Argentina is ruled by a socialist gang?

    I offer you a thought… please think on it.
    In the last 15 years some 7 million, largely unwanted, unneeded, legal and illegal immigrants have come into Britain and have put an intolerable strain on our already creaking infrastructure.
    All seven million people have call on:-
    * seven million Doctors’ and Dentists’ lists.
    * seven million on the NHS lists.
    * two million additional school places.
    * one million care home places.
    * three million extra vehicles on our overcrowded roads.
    * half a million (or more with illegals) places in HM Prisons.
    * three million calls on the Fire, Police and Ambulance Services.
    * umpteen calls on interpreters, Crèches & sundry day to day needs.
    * three million new jobs, hand in glove with…
    * three million welfare requirements.
    * two million new homes. No room in the usual city ghettos!..
    The footprint of the new homes alone will cover 300 million extra square metres of tarmac/concrete/covered land… plus driveways & patios. Many near rivers and waterways with future flooding potential.
    The list is endless… * 1,000 million litres of water per day.
    and endless.
    As many of these Immigrants are of child bearing age within three years this could have increased by one million 1st generation Britons… and every year thereafter??

    These figures are only a generalisation but you can all put your own slant on this… and on the myriad other affects this is bound to have on the way of life that we were used to in this country.
    Will the infrastructure be large enough to support our Children?
    Will there be room for the elderly? There had better be… we’re all going to be elderly one day! I already am

    J e w i s h people in Britain are enduring a backlash of attacks, bomb threats and anti-semitic insults fuelled by the bloodshed in Gaza. More than 100 hate crimes have been recorded by police and community groups this month, more than double the usual number. Community safety groups fear the total could be the second highest ever recorded, after an explosion of violence during the 2009 Gaza war. In several disturbing cases attackers have invoked the Holocaust and even shouted: ‘Heil Hitler’ at victims. A rabbi was attacked by four Muslim teenagers outside a J e w i s h boarding school in Gateshead in one of the most serious incidents. In Belfast, bricks were thrown at the city’s only synagogue, smashing windows on two consecutive nights. Groups of Asian men chanted ‘Heil Hitler’ as they drove through a J e w i s h area of Manchester, throwing missiles at passers-by. In north London, one pro-Israel organisation received a telephone bomb threat and a J e w i s h boy riding a bicycle had a stone thrown at his head by a woman in a niqab

These Penguins, representing seven species have long-standing relationships and close ties with their brethren on the mainland and remain the downtrodden helots of the British invaders–hemmed into crowded “reserves” they are denied even the most basic civil rights as illegal “settlements” are built on their ancestral land–and the world does NOTHING!

    We’re used to this in Welsh Nationalist Wales. The ex-Arch Druid, Robyn Lewis, having sucked up to the Argies by calling the Falklands “ynysoedd Malfin”, that’s Welsh, y’know, went on to describe the commemoration services for the fallen as nothing more than “REGURTITATED TRIUMPHALISM”.

    Of course, we all know that the Druids are an integral part of Carwyn Jones’ and the rest of his nationalist crew’s version of Welsh culture.

    Carwyn has recently gifted well over a £1,000,000 to further force the Welsh language down unwilling throats. Please bear in mind that that ALL spending on the Welsh language is taken from other budgets. Naturally, there’s nothing for cancer drugs and improved education for our low achieving schools which are amongst the worst in the UK.

    This is Welsh Nationalist Wales run by Welsh Labour. When will it end?

  137. 137
    Dai Bando says:

    Are you mad? Every road sign in Wales is in Welsh as well as English even though all Welsh speakers are able to speak English.

    This is why we have the worst Health Services in the UK.

    Dai Bando says:

    Brilliant idea considering that Carwyn Jones’ mate, Robyn Lewis, the ex-Arch Druid described commemorative services for the fallen as nothing more than “REGURGITATED TRIUMPHALISM”.

    Jacobites forever says:

    from Evelyn Waugh’s Decline and Fall (the funniest novel in the English language):

    “From the earliest times the Welsh have been looked upon as an unclean people. It is thus that they have preserved their racial integrity. Their sons and daughters rarely mate with humankind except their own blood relations. In Wales there was no need for legislation to prevent the conquering people intermarrying with the conquered. In Ireland that was necessary, for their intermarriage was a political matter. In Wales it was moral.”

    “I often think…that we can trace almost all the disasters of English history to the influence of Wales. Think of Edward of Carnarvon, the first Prince of Wales, a perverse life…and an unseemly death, then the Tudors and the dissolution of the Church, then Lloyd George, the temperance movement, Non-conformity and lust stalking hand in hand through the country, wasting and ravaging.”

    “The Welch…are the only nation in the world that has produced no graphic or plastic art, no architecture, no drama. They just sing…sing and blow down wind instruments of plated silver. They are deceitful because they cannot discern truth from falsehood, depraved because they cannot discern the consequences of their indulgence.”

    Did we all know The Falkland Islands were until very recently the legal property of the Coalite Company Ltd ?

    For all I know they probably still are — assuming Coalite is still in existence .

    Dai Bando says:

    When Carwyn Jones gifts another £1.25 million to prop up the dying Welsh language is it any wonder that we’re in such a state.

    Every single penny spent on Welsh in Wales is filched from other budgets.

    The latest craziness is that our Welsh Language Commissioner, Meri Huws, (Google a picture of her but keep it away from the children) insists that all doctors and nurses in Wales should speak Welsh. This is just in case a Welsh speaking Alzheimers patient forgets how to speak English.

    You couldn’t make it up and I didn’t. This is Wales and we are the Welsh and we’re inherently stupid but of course you knew that already.

    Argentine Ambassador Alicia Castro talks of “the UK government’s refusal to resolve the sovereignty dispute.”

    Nothing to resolve. It was resolved (again) in 1982. Sovereignty is British and solely British reinforced by the military defeat of Argentina.

    What part of “Give War a Chance” does she not understand? So she needs to fuck off.

    Squeezing Pimple says:

    Tell it to the Welshmen who were killed or maimed for life thanks to the Argies who acted like Nazis when they invaded The Falklands. I’m sure they would love to speak to this loon and his association with the present Argy loony Pres.

  163. 163
    Llareggub says:

    I’m not a Welsh speaker, but I support the Welsh language. Within reason, of course — some activists would like to see untold billions thrown at it, and I’m not one of them.

    But any state has multiple, competing priorities — that’s the weakness with the “spend it on schools and hospitals instead” argument. Sure, schools and hospitals (or whatever) are important. So are roads, and infrastructure, and sewer networks, and house construction, and national park maintenance, and trade envoys, and tourism promotion, and numerous other concerns, including Welsh. It’s all important, and it all has to be funded.

    Welsh is a part of our heritage. Granted, it’s a supremely useless language, but it’s one of the very major things that marks us as distinct from the English. It’s a bit like Stone Henge — there’s probably loads of more productive ways to spend the money, but allowing something that ancient and significant in the history of the country and culture (even our national anthem is all about the glories of the Welsh language) to decay and disappear would be irresponsible, to put it mildly.

    I’ve always thought that the Falklands War actually had two winners and one massive loser who didn’t actually take part.

    Britain won the war militarily.

    Argentina won the peace. The Junta fell and the country became democratic. As the Junta was killing 6,000 people a year that was a lot of Argentine lives saved.

    And the big loser – the Soviet Union. Mrs Thatcher would have lost the 1984 General Election and Labour under Michael Foot would have won, promising to take us out of the EEC (their ONLY sensible policy), unilateral nuclear disarmament and withdrawal from NATO. The Soviets might just then have won the Cold War. As it was, Mrs Thatcher called an early election in 1983, won a massive majority on the back of the “Falklands Factor”, and stood up to the Soviets. In the end, we won the Cold War as a direct result of military victory in the Falklands.

  172. 172
    Expat Geordie says:

    Not sure about all of them being able to speak English. In Toby Harnden’s book about the Welsh Guards in Afghanistan, “Dead Men Risen”, he describes a senior NCO who when he joined up only spoke Welsh, and had to have the English language beaten into him in the same way that the French Foreign Legion beat French into its recruits.

    That a white British teenager, born and brought up in a white area of Britain, couldn’t speak a word of English does make you think that the locals must be seriously backwards. How the hell was he supposed to get on in the world if he couldn’t speak to people who lived five miles away?

    Dai Bando says:

    Llareggub. I have no problem with the preservation of the Welsh language. There are still a few who wish to use it but I don’t see that the rest of us should adopt this useless language.

    We even have a Welsh language commissioner, Meri Huws on £96,000 a year with a staff of over 20 whose job it is to force Welsh on we the unwilling and uninterested majority and then have the nerve to demand that we pay for it.

    Welsh is dying on its feet, let’s put it in a museum and leave it at that.

    Since devolution, we have spent many tens of millions on Welsh and all to no avail yet the Nationalist Labour Welsh Assembly Government continues to use our money on their linguistic fantasy whilst decent Welsh folk die for the want of treatment in our shitty hospitals.

    Have you seen the latest about the amount of 999 patients that are being dealt with by Police. The Ambulance staff have just voted to strike in protest.

    That’s how bad it is yet the spending on Welsh continues unabated. It has just has another 1.25 million pounds squandered on it by that wanker Carwyn Jones. You’ll remember that he was the one who spent £90 of my money on a folder to keep his speeches in. Pardon the rant but they just piss me off.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
