Authorities in Port Stanley hope the result will send a clear message to Argentina as it ramps up its rhetoric over the islands it calls Las Malvinas, and outside observers are being brought in to monitor the referendum in order to prove it is free and fair.
But the poll, which began yesterday, is unlikely to appease the Argentine president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner who is desperate to improve her popularity against a backdrop of economic decline.
