The Falkland Islands have long been a sore spot for British-Argentinian relations and Argentinian pride, but they usually remain out of the news until the Argentine government needs a distraction from troubles at home. I wasn't aware that things were that bad; I thought the Argentine economy was doing better than its troubles of a few years ago.
AN INCREASINGLY anxious UK government is closely monitoring a build-up of Argentinian military strength and a series of confrontations with the RAF close to the Falkland Islands, Scotland on Sunday can reveal.
The activity has led Tony Blair's most senior advisers to demand he issues a "hands-off" warning to Buenos Aires.
Apparently, I'm wrong.
