There is no issue here. The islands belong to the British people. There are no indigenous Chagossians and a few people whose itinerant ancestors worked on the islands for a generation or two have no valid claim. Neither does Mauritius have a valid claim. There is no historic connection and the Chagos was administered from Mauritius for administrative convenience. So were the Seychelles. And by the way, Burma came under the Indian Empire - does that give modern Pakistan or Indian or Bangladesh a claim on Burma today? Of course not. The campaign to deprive the British people of their birthright in BIOT - and not coinceidentally, the West of a significant strategic base - is a disgraceful hoax that should be exposed for what it is, an attempt to weaken the West in the face of the imperialism of the Chinese Communuists. It's time ConHome stopped feeding these trolls.

Exactly. Sounds like Chris took Disney literally as a kid.

On a slightly less facetious note, I would be happy for any heroes from the empire who fought for Britain to be remembered in this way. In particular the legendary achievement of the pundits in the Himalayas should never be forgotten.

Told my dad this was in the offing and he said "It'll be Hitler next."

Perhaps we could do an exchange, we put Ghandi on Bank of England notes and they put Clive on Reserve Bank of India notes? After all the enrichment of migration and cultural cross-fertilisation between our two countries had not all been one way.

In fact, why not include Pakistan? India could have Clive and Jinnah; we could have Ghandi and Jinnah; and Pakistan could have Ghandi and Napier, Lawrence or Nicholson. Both India and Pakistan under-rate the contribution of Brits and Muslims/Hindus to building their countries.

This is such a brilliant idea, it shouldn't be limited to the South Asia. Here in the British Isles, mutual understanding could do with Constance Markievicz and Slab Murphy on UK notes and perhaps the republic could go for Oliver Cromwell and Captain Boycott?

Yet another slimy remainiac ploy to use the Commons to block Brexit. It is Djanogly that is not fit for purpose as a Conservative MP.

I suggested an outcome from a general settlement, not a forced resettlement. By definition it would be agreed by all sides.

Ethnic cleansing (which I was not suggesting) was not a charge at Nuremberg. In fact the largest in history (12m people) was carried out all over eastern Europe after WWII by victims of the Nazis.

Apart from that, bravo!

No they preempted an attack planned for the following day, initiated by a conspiracy to wage aggressive war by the Arab dictators.

The 2 country solution is probably unfeasible. The 22 country solution is better, where under a general settlement the Arabs in the West Bank and Gaza go and live in the other Arab League states. As Muslims and Arabs who speak the language they would fit in easily and could prosper, while the Israelis would have defensible borders and credible security. Everybody wins.

No. Unallocated.

Just unallocated.
