        Ah but then you see the thing is, the Spaniards hold all the cards here, unless the inbred inhabitants of that rotten rock want to come and go by sea they have to play ball with Johnny Foreigner. Regardless of Mr Guido’s some what homoerotic lust for our good Navy, Britain are bound by European law to do nothing. Cameron can stroke gullible supporters like Mr Guido into a state of ejaculating arousal with the site of big ships filled with tough sailors but they cannot and will not show any aggression.
        There was a story from C@n@d@ last week about a huge bust on a k1dd1e p0r’n network, that network links to some very, very senior figures in our Parliament and royal household. If it was investigated to it’s true end it will bring down governments and royalty across the continent. This so called “war” is a distraction story that Mr Guido is being instructed to run. Sad to see the usual gullible mouth foamers getting all worked up as per required by those with the REAL power.

          In that case surely Spain is bound by the same laws ? that is one of the things that gets me about the UK, we always play by the book while the rest of the feckers get away with murder !

          74 ‘Old ‘ard, Pal: if “the Spaniards hold all the cards here” why do they need to jump up and down like over-excited foreigners (‘course: they are!)? An’, if the “inhabitants of the rotten rock” are all in-bred, why are the spicks to keen to have it? Ethnic cleansing? Got tons of concrete an’ cement left over, and ‘the rotten rock’ is just the place to dump it all, now they’ve filled up the Costa Brava and Costa del Sol?
          I might be Cornish, ol’ Pal, but your English is worse than mine; ‘it’s for ‘its'; ‘some what’ for ‘somewhat'; ‘Britain are…'; ‘if it was investigated (‘it’s’, again)… it will': you need a Conditional, a Subjunctive, an Optative, ol’ Pal, not mere Indicatives! ‘Ow ’bout, ‘If it were investigated to its (!) true end [Protasis], it would bring down Governments and Royalty across the Continent [Apodosis].
          F’r a while, I reckoned you were a Spaniard (we ‘ad enough of they in 1588); then, I tho’t, ‘No: ‘is English is too poor: e’s a product of our own wonderful Education system.’ Besides, ‘oo now talks ’bout ‘Johnny Foreigner’?

        Disillusioned people of Portsmouth says:

        When is something going to be done about Hancock? He has corrupted the once fine and proud city of Portsmouth into a city reminiscent of a banana republic or Chicago in the 1930″s. Apart from the fact that he has embarrassed this country over his illogical support of undemocratic communist dictatorships, had a 4 year affair with a Russian spy and recently stated that elections in Azerbaijan were above board when the results had been announced one day before the count, he was sponsored by the Prime Minister, as an independent MP, having resigned the whip for sexual indiscretions, as an MP representative on the Council for Europe, where he has been able to create his mischief against UK interests. Coming closer to home, in Portsmouth, he runs the most corrupt planning organisation (which he is in charge of) probably in the country. The biggest proper developers in the city are organised criminals who launder their ill gotten gains through this property development. For 10 years now he has brought more asylum seekers in to the city than proportionately any other town or city in the country, not from a sense of compassion but so that his criminal friends can make millions more housing them while at the same time laundering their proceeds of crime, providing him with political donations and backhanders. He has used his membership of the freemasons to surround himself with them for protection – senior council officers, senior police officers, fellow politicians and his organised crime chums. It would be easy enough to blow apart this criminal conspiracy; all the authorities (outside of Portsmouth and Hampshire) have to do is audit where he came by his villa in Spain, bought for him by the same criminals who he is making millions for through bringing in asylum seekers and providing planning permissions.
        Finally, although he is a sexual predator of repute and has been for many years, he gets away with it all the time through masonic protection. A recent QC’s report commissioned by the Council found that he had sexually assaulted a vulnerable female constituent and that he should be punished for it. The Council have ignored this report and although the police have had a copy of it for more than a month, they have done nothing about it, nor will they because of his masonic protection. The situation in portsmouth is a disgrace and reflects badly on the whole country. Something should be done about it and fast

          • Tony Bliar says:

            Yes. By writing off only a a few k allied troops we could kill 140,0000 innocent Gibraltan and Spanish civilians, then withdraw from gibralter without having achieved anything.

    I seem to recall a few years back a smilar incident in the BBC Tv Series “Warship”…..when a spanish vessel entered Gibraltar Brithish territorial Waters and they sent a Frigate who put a shot across the bows and boarded it…of course that WAS fiction although listening to the voice transmission I thought I’d stumbled actess an episode of the “Navy Lark”…they should have told them that unless they stopped they would send a naval vessel and board it EU or Spanish Authorities or what but of course we have NO naval vessels in area as Dave has sent HMS Daring and HMS Illustrious the two ships on station to the Pihilipines…you couldn’t make it up !!

      Dave's Imaginary Navy says:

      Agreed. However after about two hours of the Spanish ignoring request to leave we should have stopped and boarded the vessel after due warning not let it carry on for 20 hours whilst we just tried to ram its survey gear…it makes the Royal Navy look evn more ineffectual than it actually is and sends a message to anybody else i.e Argentina that resolve isn’t there


      • 90
        Llareggub says:

        Board the vessel, arrest the crew, impound the boat, leave the crew to stew in a cell for a few hours before driving them to the border and dumping them just the other side. Tell them they can have their boat back when they submit a written apology, and leave them to walk home.

        At least, do something! Instead of all this feckless bleating about UN articles. If the Spanish gave a toss, they wouldn’t have organised an incursion in the first place!
