A massive trove of government papers detailing some dark episodes of British history, including the Falklands War and the notorious Northern Irish Troubles, have vanished from the National Archives.

Almost 1,000 files, each thought to contain dozens of British government papers, have disappeared from the National Archives in London after civil servants removed them from the institution.

How can we allow this government to get away with stuff like this, it is unbelievable.

Isn't that what the ruling elite do everywhere? We often read about corruption abroad but amazingly our media and libel laws manage to keep the lid on much of the home grown stuff.

What corruption would you expect to find in papers regarding the Falklands and Ireland?

The Falklands wasn't a dark episode, more a tremendous victory for our armed forces to remove an aggressive invader of our land.

There may be something that demonstrates that the government created the situation in order to direct attention from the mess they were responsible for back home.

Whereas the Irish were trying to remove an aggressive invader of their land? Funny that.

Like a few emails to the Argentinian dictators asking them if they fancied a bit of a tussle in the S Atlantic. Got it.
