Ascension Island is being used as a base for spying on Brazil, according to an article on the Huffington Post website. It says the revelation is contained in documents leaked by the US whistle-blower Edward Snowden, who has taken refuge in Russia. Read the article here.
Two Falkland items on the Huffington Post news blog:
Item one: Blogger Will Porter says Falkland Islanders should make a YouTube video to demonstrate how British they are. ‘They should discuss their love of a nice cuppa, custard creams and the importance of queuing. I’m not suggesting they morris dance in Beefeater outfits whilst eating spotted dick, although I’d like to see that.’
Item two: Argentina is thinking of seeking Scottish support for its claim to the Falklands.
Now you, dear reader, have to decide which story is written tongue-in-cheek.
