Are the Toboggans still being held hostage by the Latvians? BoArthur 17:43, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
- Recent comments on Conculture suggest that they are not. Benkarnell 20:14, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
- They were for a short while at the end of the Florida War. The county was restored to England shortly thereafter. There's a news article detailing the valiant Latvians and the stalwart Tobagans locked in dreadful combat. Or something like that.
- You have to give the Latvians credit for trying, mind. And after all, they did have an historical claim to the island. If it were some uninhabited rock, perhaps they could have gotten away with it, but Tobago's a bloody English county! It would be like France seizing Kent. There's no way it can go unanswered.

- Would the Tobaggans be part of the CaL, then? BoArthur 14:37, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
- I'd imagine so. It's been a difficult journey for them, and if there's one thing a Tobaggan hates, it's a long uphill journey. Benkarnell 15:17, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
- Or warm weather! ;)))
- Seriously, for either Trinidad or Tobago to join the CaL as anything more than observers, they'd have to secede from the FK first. Both are counties (not colonies!) of England. They have MPs and seats in the London parliament. Jamaica is in a similar position, though with the NAL. Elemtilas 01:04, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
- Time for new condominiums! That is, if the CaL has finally turned into something other than an utter failure.
- On a side note, even if Tobago is no longer Latvian (if it ever was for more than 3 months), it surely must have at least a degree of Latvian culture--after all, apparently the native creole of Tobago is based on Latvian! I wonder how that pans out for soca and calypso music? Juan Martin Velez Linares 10:39, 21 September 2015 (CDT)
