Fury as EU sneerrs at Falklanders over right to stay British

A SENIOR Tory MP last night attacked “outrageous” claims that Europe does not recognise British sovereignty over the Falkland Islands

Andrew Rossindell hit out over a Spanish MEP’s grovelling comment to Argentine politicians in Buenos Aires during trade talks.

Daniel Filmus, head of Argentina’s Foreign Affairs Committee, called on members of an EU delegation to press Britain to begin talks about sovereignty of the South Atlantic islands.

Last night angry Mr Rossindell, a member of the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee, said: “The EU is encroaching on foreign affairs in a way that I find absolutely out­rageous.”

He urged David Cameron to rush through the promised referendum on the EU before the next Parliament to help put a stop to the interference.
