Daily Telegraph Poll Not Reflective of Great Britains Views

Daily Telegraph Poll Not Reflective of Great Britains Views

By J. Brock (FINN)

According to an online poll released in The Daily Telegraph concluded that 63 percent of the voters said that the Falklands should be under Argentinas sovereignty.

In addition, the voting revealed that 34 percent of the respondents reject the idea, while the rest answered that the territory should be under shared sovereignty.

Following is the final result of the poll:

Should the Falkland Islands be British or Argentinian? (Las Malvinas deberían ser Argentinas o Británicas?) (Poll Closed) British (Británicas) 24.03% (6,353 votes) Argentinian (Argentinas) 73.82% (19,514 votes) Shared sovereignty (Soberanía compartida) 2.14% (567 votes) Total Votes: 26,434

FINN feels that the poll does not reflect the whole of British society because the sample was too small and the on-line method of collection was flawed by lacking guarantees that people only voted once.
