Of 1,517 votes cast in the two-day referendum - on a turnout of more than 90% - 1,513 were in favour, while just three votes were against.
What about vote no. 1517?

Inhabited by a couple thousand American military personnel.

They'd vote to join the new Republic of Texas.

The original inhabitants of Diego Garcia are no longer there. London did what Washingston said and moved them - against their will.

That explains a lot about Crawley.

Anyway...Long Live The Falklands - more British than most of the miserable sods in Britain I suspect.

I'm wondering if there's any way to invest there?
