John Lewis has been selling trendy vintage-style globes to oversalaried Sloanes. Nothing unusual there. But, to the spluttering of retired colonels across the land, the Falklands on said £95 globes are labelled ‘Islas Malvinas’. Treachery!
A chastened John Lewis has got its suppliers to fix the error. But it’s too late - Argentina wins this round, in the knowledge that some of our nation’s finest dinner parties are forever to be tainted by its insidious propaganda.
Thatcher would never have let this happen.
