BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — British Prime Minister David Cameron claimed he was “delighted” with the results. Argentina’s President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, meanwhile, lambasted what she referred to as a vote by a “group of squatters.”
The outcome of this week’s Falkland Islands’ referendum had, of course, been widely viewed as one of the most predictable plebiscites in history. And it didn’t disappoint: 99.8 percent of the islanders voted to remain a British Overseas Territory. Three lone voices — for now anonymous — voted the other way.
