Gibraltar’s New Gung-Ho Governor War Hero

Lieutenant-General Sir James Benjamin Dutton has been appointed the Governor of Gibraltar today, to take up the position later this year. Sir James served in the Royal Marines for 37 years, most recently in Iraq and Afghanistan. His message to the Spanish government is clear:

“I am delighted and honoured to be going to Gibraltar, especially given its historical connections with the Royal Marines. I hope that my many years of military experience… will equip me well to deliver the Governor’s role and responsibilities toward Gibraltar and the United Kingdom.”

Which roughly translates to don’t mess with him…

    Smoke and mirrors for the foam at the mouth brigade while the scum in Westminster continue their pillaging of the nation. Time to storm the palace and take some of these fuckers out I say.

    As much as I utterly loathe and detest that evil greedy war criminal Tony Blair, I don’t wish ill of his daughter, so Lee Jasper’s tweet was typically sickening of that twat.

    Euan, on the other hand, is a total c-unt and a replica of his father. He I wouldn’t give a fuck about.

      Bill Quango MP-9 says:

      But even he didn’t declare war on Iraq. Can’t blame the child for the sins of the father.
      And think of Gordon’s two kids… Not their fault their old man destroyed the nation.
      They have to live with the Nokia throwing, bogey eating, lumpen, failure.

      They will have that stigma attached already.
      Poor little mites.

        Have they any UKIP leanings?

          Bliar says:

          Joyce Thacker and the rest of the social services in this country are an absolute disgrace with the blood of hundreds of children on their hands. Case after case of “missed opportunities” to save a child from being starved or tortured, and each time we hear the usual “lessons have been learned” bollocks, but woe betide anyone who doesn’t vote Labour. Joyce and her gang of far left loons will be at your doorstep within minutes, despite being good foster parents.

          The Social(ist) Services – they’ll do fuck all if you abuse your child, but vote UKIP, and they’ll be onto you like flies on shit.

        Bliar says:

        I’d agree except that Euan is already notorious for being a slimy, odious and arrogant twat, and he’s using his father’s connections to get himself a safe seat.

        Look at this arrogant shit..sitting with Euan Blair.

          Who is that cow. Looks like a typical Norf Londoner of the Milipede brigade.

            She’s thinking, “a few more swallows and I’ll be in a safe seat quicker than you can say ‘nepotism’. Seriously, I’ll do Sion Simon and then a bald black bloke if I have to.”


          • Chuka Umunna MP says:

            “…[T]hen a bald black bloke if I have to.”

            I’d pretty much do most trashy North London types, if nothing better comes along, truth be known. A bald black bloke’s gotta do what a bald black bloke’s gotta do, know wot I mean?

            I mean, Luciana Berger, right? Case closed.

      I lose about as much sleep over Blair’s kids welfare as he does over mine.

    I was hoping Nick would get the job when he retires from helping David Cameron. He could be home every night for tea and have a full Spanish breakfast before he goes off to work in the morning.

    There is no chance of war over Gibraltar. The EU, which has kept the peace in Europe without any help from NATO for the past 3,000 years will not permit it. They said so and I believe every word this nonpareil stealth-tryanny utters.

      Paddy managed to save his squad from drowning by creating a makeshift rubber dinghy out of the condoms in his trouser pocket.
      He could have saved the whole platoon if he’d used the one’s in his backpack as well.

    Why are we still paying to protect this tax haven when they don’t remit any funds to the UK?

      Because it gives our navy access to the med and it pisses off the dagos :-)

        Have you seen what the typical inhabitant of Gibraltar looks like?

        “New” British is the polite term: “Dago” is more accurate.

        …”access to the Med”? With what exactly now that the Royal Navy has been effectively sunk.


    • 51
      nellnewman says:

      Because the folks on it regards themselves as British and do not wish to secede to the spanish sinking ship.

      Very sensible too!

    With malice aforethought by immigration

    I know a guy with a flotilla of amphibious buses he want’s to sell.

    EU Watch says:

    Good account of what to expect after the G’erman Federal Elections:

    What is interesting to note is the language towards the end where mention is made of G’ermany needing to get other nothern European countries back on side with the southern Europe bailout. (These countries being: N’etherlands, F’inland and A’ustria, the UK is not listed.)

    This is needed in order to prevent further ‘disintegration’ of the EU.

    Even though there was no true union in the first place (note that the single currency Euro no longer exists since C’yprus and capital controls restricting high denomination notes from being issued by certain southern member states), disintegration is still a powerful admission.

      Can the EU disintegrate just a little faster please?


      • 55
        EU Watch says:

        It is and has been for a while.

        Another important aspect of that article is the explanation that non EU exports are what has been keeping G’ermany afloat.

        There go all the stupid arguments about The economic reasons to stay in for the UK in one simple observation.

      Shirley the E U’s steady as the rock of Gibraltar
      It must be, or else the LibLabCons would have to alter
      Their absolute, cast-iron and set-in-stone denial
      Of putting the question to a referendum trial

        EU Watch says:

        It was holed below the waterline a while back.

        Now the time is near where those who were invested in the Euro are nearly settled with what they have recouped it is time for the political mess that filled the economic vacuum to be cleared out.

        Support for the current EU status quo does not exist across the majority of the Eurozone. It is not just the UK who want out.

          Who told you that ? Even the Greeks and Cyps want to stay in the Euro, despite their problems of the moment.

      I’ll take that as a compliment, left-handed though it sounds– but the BBC? Really? Almost anyone is better, FFS!

      But after my customary liquid lunch, I’m usually pretty easy-going about such things, anyway.

    Indeed. Mess with Spoonface and he’ll retaliate with some vague pointless pseudo militaristic willy waving designed to impress the Daily Telegraph but won’t actually do anything.

    Heard a serious minded BBC discussion about the need for `Goth` police officers, who are currently under represented in the Constabulary, so the time must be ripe for hijab wearing officers of either sex.

        Remember: immigration is good for Britain!

        (So long as you avoid all the nasty facts, such as 1 in 7 prisoners being immigrants, and 25% of crime in London being committed by immigrants. If you forget all that – and the full schools and lack of jobs and housing for British people – then immigration is good for Britain!)

    Shudder the idea that our PM would be playing war games during conference says:

    Now that “Dave” doesn’t have to commit assets to Syria he can obviously re-deploy them to the Straits…convenient that they are already in the “Med” on station….ideal for conference week.

    Blowback from not being in the Shengen Area methinks ? So really the Spaniards are quite in order to be a little strict on their border with the Onshore/Offshore den of thieves that dear old Gib has become :)
