It begins tomorrow. The Falkland Islanders will vote on the question, 'Do you wish the Falklands Islands to retain their current political status as an Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom?' My view on this is the same as that expressed by The Independent:
The Falkland Islands' sovereignty must... be decided by those who live there.
The US, unfortunately, is sitting on the fence. At the Organization of American States Canada was 'alone in arguing that the Falkland Islanders should be allowed to decide their own future'. There do, however, seem to be some few voices in Latin America supporting tomorrow's referendum. (Thanks: LM.)
