Chagos Islanders lose bid to return home - Telegraph (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/3240106/Chagos-Islanders-lose-bid-to-return-home.html)

Wasn't it Thatcher who said, of the Falkland Islanders, that 'the wishes of the islanders are paramount'. Oh, I forgot, they're white and speak English.

Which day was that. I thought they were all days of shame for this govt? Or should I say this shower of sh*t?

Not possible.

They have proved time and again that they have no shame.

What is also a shame is that very few members of the public know about this.

I'm appalled that the government has got away with the ethnic cleansing of a nation which was unable to defend itself from the worst of imperial aggression.

The crimes by the government are nothing less than crimes against humanity.

I commend a documentary film which was broadcast four or five years ago on the subject.
