So Britain lays claim to the other pole before Russia decides that Antarctica is also die fuhrer Putin's back yard.
I can just picture Blair:
Blair: 'You take the Arctic? Okay, then I want Antactica.'
Putin: 'No, no, Antarctica is also ours!'
Blair: 'It can't be yours, I said it first!'
Putin: 'But I'm gonna take it anyway, watch me!'
Blair: 'I'll tell daddy!'
And so on
To Heck with claims to Antarctica. Norway's tried it, didn't work. UK's tried before, didn't work. Has something changed now?
