Really its worst then Israel keeping land because the British dont need that island to live on.
Those are Falkland Islanders, not 'Brits' and have lived there since the mid 19th century. It's their choice to remain a democracy and remain protected by the UK. Long before oil was discovered.

The islands are also more than 300 miles from Argentina, so why would those islanders leave their homes?
