Spain And Gibraltar
So in the Falkland Islands in 1982 it was a scrap metal merchant that was used by the Argentinians to start the war, the Spanish are now winding us up with their fishermen. They've got our fishing waters, thanks to the European Union, now they're after Gib!
What is it about these countries that they cannot accept that the people of Gibraltar, just like the people of the Falklands, should have the right to decide their own futures? It's not down to the United Kingdom government and certainly not the Spanish or Argentinian governments to decide. I'm sure it has nothing to do with Spain and Argentina being miltary dictatorships until relatively recently and more to do with their governments trying to deflect attention from their ecomnnomic shambles.
The Spanish really need to remember Ceuta.
