It was 30 years ago today ............
That the Malvinas/Falklands were invaded
In the following few weeks hundreds of young men died fighting over a few rocky outcrops that logic always suggested to me, but obviously not too many others, the UK should have nothing to do with
......... but hey ho what does it matter - after all the Iron Lady romped home in the 1983 election on the back of a wave of nationalistic fervour that has never been equalled in my lifetime - not that her trailing in the polls in 1982 would've had anything whatsoever to do with the military, rather than diplomatic option being taken, obviously
So it was all worthwhile and no one died in vain
