Thursday 3rd June 1982
Chancellor saw our draft overnight - John Kern thinks it is OK.
Pronab Sen - just wanted to get his foot in No 10
Lunch with PM + private secretaries. Very relaxed but annoyed at questions by corres [correspondents] of U.S. newspapers
- she apparently told them of the need to defend the rights which they insisted on exercising
Reagan visit briefing for PM. Falklands dominant
USA wants (Nico Henderson) some long term decolonisation or self-governing status - get rid of the Governor - joint guarantee of security by USA + Brazil - want to rebuild L.A. [Latin America?] fences
PM has silly ideas about dev of Falklands with Tourism etc.
use prisoners as bargaining counter - we keep them while hostilities proceed.
