Re: Falkland Islands: Tensions Rising again ahead of Prince William visit
You want to put "what remains of the British Armed forces (after Afg(h)anistan) to be based at the RAF base!".
OK, and I know this may hurt, but how about Mr Reality coming to visit, just this once.
RAF Mount Pleasant can currently hold between 1000 and 2000 personnel, and the current Falkland Islands population (not including the visiting servicepeople) is approx 3000.
Won't it get a bit crowded with 90,000 army personnel, 30,000 TA, 30,000 Navy personnel, 35,000 RAF personnel, 1000 aircraft, 97 active service ships, and all the tanks and artillery?
