How long before the Falklands are handed over to the Argentinians

The news reaches me via The Mail that:
"Gordon Brown today dismissed Argentina's calls for talks over ownership of the Falklands.

The Prime Minister ruled out negotiations over the disputed territory during a 15 minute discussion with President Cristina Kirchner.

The bilateral meeting between the leaders took place at a summit in Chile where the groundwork is being laid for next week's crunch G20 meeting in London.

A British official said: 'The Prime Minister set out the British Government's long standing position on sovereignty in very clear terms. He emphasised the importance of self-determination."

So that's it, the Falklands will be Argentinian any day now. I have a simple rule at the moment - whatever Gordon Brown says will happen, won't.
