UK Press Prints Falklands Responses
The point of view of Falkland Islanders has been included in two broadsheet newspapers in the UK this week, ensuring that the people are aware of Islanders™ opinions. On 8 March The Times (circulation 508,250) published a letter from the Hon. Jan Cheek, a Member of the Legislative Assembly, which argued that suggestions regarding the “leaseback” of the Falklands were œdeeply disappointing in response to an article by Matthew Parris (27 February). A longer œResponse article appeared in The Guardian (circulation 302,285) on 10 March, reiterating the Islanders™ right to self-determination and correcting points made by Simon Jenkins in the newspaper on 25 February.
