Multiculturalist shows contempt for British defence of the Falklands

Football pundit Stan Collymore was today criticised by a Royal Navy veteran after he claimed Britain had ‘thieved’ the Falklands.

The 43-year-old former Liverpool player, who now works as a Talksport radio commentator, described the archipelago to his 565,000 Twitter followers as a ‘f***ing island with sheep’.

He said: ‘Falklands? Wasn't anyone's. We just thieved it, as we do. What glory, what triumph. A f***ing island with sheep. Rule Britannia.’

The tweet - which was posted on Saturday night - has since been deleted, but there have been calls for Collymore to issue a public apology.

Chris 'Kenny' Swain, 50, who served as Petty Officer Gunner in the Royal Navy from 1980 to 2003, said Collymore should be sacked from Talksport.  Mr Swain, of Plymouth, Devon said: ‘I had a lot of friends that died in the Falklands. I think it's just an absolute outrage. I don't know whether he did it to raise his profile, but it's just an outrage.

‘There are so many upset people. He needs to be sacked from Talksport for a start - you can't have somebody with opinions like that addressing the public. I am just so angry.

And a post of the official Twitter feed of the Falkland Islands Government said: 'Very disappointed to hear Mr Collymore's views on the Falklands - factually incorrect and hurtful.'


Collymore is an all-round bad character well known to the police.  His part-African ancestry may also help explain his hostility to Britain.

The Falklands also have many penguins.

And no citizen of Argentina has ever been a permanent resident of these islands, only armed invaders from the Argentinian dictatorship for a short time until repulsed. Otherwise these islands are only inhabited by people who democratically choose to be linked to Britain. (Unfortunately, the sheep and penguins cannot vote!)
