Making History

My Daughter Tiphanie

Well I am sure that you all know that history was made in the Falklands on the 10th & 11th of March when Falkland Islanders voted in a referendum to show the world that we are British and want to remain British.  In the picture is my daughter Tiphanie who was fortunate enough to be working at the right place at the right time to help with the organising of the referendum.  In the picture she is showing the assembled counters, press and interested on lookers that she has emptied the box of votes and that it is indeed empty.  There was never any doubt in my mind what the outcome would be. Our community came out in force to cast their vote.  With a staggering 94% turnout which turned into a 99.8% yes vote.  The message was clear.  Of course we are democratic and 3 individuals chose to say no.  They may have been confused, it could have been an error but then again it might not have been.  All I can say is if there are 3 individuals who do not wish to remain British and keep our ties with Great Britain then they must feel well and truly out of place living here. It must feel much like trying to fit a square post into a round hole.
