Radio Tirana redux

In a manner of speaking.

An Argentinian MP has come up with a really good idea for spending Argentinian tax payers' money: "a bill calling for the establishment of a bilingual broadcasting station targeted to service the Falkland Islands".

....

He added that it was essential to have “a 24 hours broadcasting service, both in English and Spanish geared to the Malvinas Islands from the studios of Radio Nacional in Rio Grande and with the purpose of spreading Argentine culture and news”.

I think it is fair to say that even the most insomniac inhabitants of the Islands of the Blessed (1) will be not be tuning in with much regularity.




(1). Here is the current crime round up: Between the 24th and 26th August there were two road traffic accidents, a report of the theft of heating fuel, and "a 999 call about a horse laying down in the vicinity of the Lady Elizabeth". I wonder how Her Ladyship felt about that?

Unlike Gibraltar, do any of the inhabitants of the Falklands actually speak Spanish?

The new music station might be good - and they would also get some relief from the BBC World Service.

No hablo espagnol in those parts, I think.
