    Nothing here about the British sending warships to the former French channel islands?

    I mean, isn't it time we returned those islands to their rightful French ownership?

    Whilst we are at it, return the Malvinas to Argentina, Gibraltar to Spain, Northern Ireland to the Republic of Ireland and Scotland back to, errrr, Scotland?

      Power struggle: UK plans to counter French threat to pull plug on Jersey by laying under-sea cable to Netherlands
      Anyone see a flaw in this plan to solve the stand-off?

          Being Brexit related its in the Sub forum.

          Jeez I assume you are trolling?

          Rightful owners? If they vote to stay part of the UK then they are with their rightful owners. The minute the Falkland islanders decide they want to become part of Argentina (stolen by Spain from the natives) then I am sure we will release them.

          You do know almost every part of the world changed hands in history.

          Maybe the Greeks still own Egypt? The Italians own France? etc.

            What, a sub-forum for handing back land that belongs rightfully to other nations?

                  You mean give the Malvinas back to France/Spain. Depending on who you believe was there first.

                  Interesting when you look at territories held by different countries. Britain was not the only Colonial Empire.

                  How far back in time do we go. Give wales back to the celts. America back to the first Nations. etc.

                    he is trolling!

                    There were natives before the France & Spain. I think the invaders wiped them out as usual.
