quote of the day

We support the Falklands' right to self-determination, and what the Argentinians have been saying recently I would argue is actually far more like colonialism, because [the Falkland] people want to remain British, and the Argentinians want them to do something else.
- British Prime Minister David Cameron

The people of Roatan and the Bay Islands wanted to remain British, too. (Pressured by the United States, the United Kingdom ceded the islands to the new Republic of Honduras in 1860.) Many of us islanders wonder at times how different things would now be had someone like David Cameron stood up for us back then.
