Changing the subject.

David Cameron today rejected a call from absolutely no one to restore the "territorial integrity" of the Chagos archipelago, as everyone was far too busy concerning themselves with the status of the Falkland Islands.

"The future of the Chagos archipelago should be determined by the people who live there.  As we expelled the entire indigenous population of Diego Garcia when we leased the island to the Americans, this means asking the Americans whether they would like to continue to have a massive military base there, from which they have bombed both Iraq and Afghanistan and also rendered prisoners to.  Whenever they have been asked their opinion they have stated they wish to retain their current status with the UK, and for as long as they choose to stay with the UK they have my 100% backing.

"And anyway, who gives a stuff about a load of Tarzans and Man Fridays when we should be worrying instead about a shitty little territory where no one in their right mind would want to live?"
