The singer Morrissey has become the latest celebrity to endorse Argentina‘s claims over the Falkland Islands, telling a crowd in the Argentinian city of Córdoba, “we know the islands belong to you”.

Diplomatic tensions between Argentina and the UK have been mounting ahead of the 30th anniversary of the invasion of the islands by Argentina on 2 April 1982. Last month British diplomats accused Argentina of trying to isolate the Falklands by putting pressure on Chile to end flights there. On Monday, two British cruise ships were prevented from docking at an Argentinian port.

Morrissey’s comments follow similar endorsements by the US actor Sean Penn and the Pink Floyd bass player Roger Waters. “The Malvinas Islands, everybody knows they belong to Argentina,” Morrissey said from the stage of the Orfeo stadium in Córdoba. “So please don’t blame the British people, we know the islands belong to you.”

The comments brought enthusiastic cheers from the crowd before he launched into the 1984 Smiths track Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want.

Opinion:

Another third rate wanker (Penn, Waters & now Morrissey) pushing his ticket sales in Argentina by siding with them on the Falklands story.

I would almost guarantee that none of these three has beens has even taken the trouble to look up Falkland Island’s history before frothing off at the mouth.

These people are making me very angry simply because they are using the situation for their own ends and self-promotion without having any iota what they are talking about.
