Falkland referendum

Falklands vote 98.8% Yes!

On a turnout of 92%, 99.8% voted overwhelmingly to remain a British territory, with only three votes against. Had the islanders rejected the continuation of their current status, a second referendum on possible alternatives would have been held.

Brad Smith, the leader of the international observer group, announced that the referendum was free and fair and executed in accordance with international standards and international laws.

David Cameron said Argentina should respect vote.
