Please, can someone explain the Malvinas soy Argentina arriba! thing. It doesn't make any sense. Maybe is suppose to be "Las Malvinas son Argentinas". And why "arriba" anyway? I suppose to look up for something!?.

Argentina has a lasting impression that the Islands belong to them. However, we are very much British- and most of us proud to be.

I don't speak Spanish, so I can't tell you what it means exactly, but I took it as a vaguely bad-tasted joke about how, by a few Argentineansí, we are referred to as `Islas Malvinas` and `belong` to them. Or that soon should the Argentineansí rule/arrive in the Islands. However, you ask most any Islander, and that will be seen as poor taste- as even now, Argentina is still arguing that the Islands belong to them.

Apologies for whatever misinterpretation I make of it. I donít speak a word of Spanish.

I understand what you say. I can assert you that it wasn't wrote by ANY Argentinian (or spanish-speaking-person in general) 'cause the grammar is just plain wrong. But as an Argentinian myself I felt that the thing was just stupid (an embarrassing) and it should't be in the page. I'm happy you remove it!. Keep the good work!
