    Britain betrays Ascension Islanders

    It seems that Britain has sold out the Ascension Islanders to the US military, according to this article, from today's Observer:

    It is a row about human rights, the British Empire, a top-secret US military base, global oil and green sea turtles. At its centre are hundreds of British subjects living on British-owned Ascension Island - a small volcanic outcrop in the South Atlantic. Although many islanders have been born there, they are allowed to remain only as long as they have jobs. In 1999 the British government pledged this would change, but has dramatically gone back on its word.

    Britain has badly let down the islanders, and our leaders should be ashamed of themselves.
