Quote of the Day

The Earl of Dartmouth MEP calls for Britain to send a frigate to Gibraltar:

“It is time the British Government pulled its finger out and stopped mouthing diplomatic niceties to Madrid. It is becoming obvious that the Spanish Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, caught up in a corruption scandal and with a tanking economy with over 50% of their youth out of work, needs a distraction and their futile claims over Gibraltar seem to fit his bill. To see this sort of behavior from a so-called ally is sad in the extreme, it is more suited to Argentina than a mature European democracy. However, repeated maritime incursions into sovereign Gibraltarian waters, blocking the border, threatening the airspace and singling out Gibraltarian citizens for enhanced audits show that we are not dealing with an entirely rational Government in Madrid. What Mr Rajoy and his Government must remember is that the people of Gibraltar withstood the behavior of Franco, as they have every attempt to intimidate them over the past 300 years. They are not going to kowtow now. The British Government must show some backbone to support the people of Gibraltar. By sending a frigate to Gib, the message will ring out loud and clear: Gibraltar is British.”
