Falklands Against Sean Penn

A patriotic mile-long convoy of red, white and blue snakes out of the Falklands capital Port Stanley. Union Flags flapping in the breeze like medieval battle standards, the motorcade of islanders drove out to protest over insults levelled at Britain by Hollywood actor Sean Penn. With the 30th anniversary of the Falklands War in April, the islanders were incensed at Penn’s inflammatory remarks on Monday labelling Britain “colonialist, ludicrous and archaic.”
