Gavin Short, chairman of the Legislative Assembly for the Falkland Islands has said they will be holding a referendum to show that they are "certain" about their future. Mr Short said:
I have no doubt that the people of the Falklands wish for the islands to remain a self-governing overseas territory of the United Kingdom.
We certainly have no desire to be ruled by the government in Buenos Aires, a fact that is immediately obvious to anyone who has visited the islands and heard our views.
And the Argentine government deploys misleading rhetoric that wrongly implies that we have no strong views or even that we are being held hostage by the UK military. This is simply absurd.
