Labour’s Shadow Europe Minister Thinks Gibraltar is an Island

Gareth Thomas, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Europe, was banging on last week that the government wasn’t doing enough for Gibraltar. He boasts that he has “visited the island twice in the last six months” whilst whilst no Foreign Office Minister has visited since 2011. He is calling on “a Foreign Office Minister to visit the island as soon as possible to witness first hand the unnecessary delays and disruption to travellers trying to cross the border.”

Embarrassingly Gibraltar is, as any schoolboy knows, not an island. That border Gareth is talking about is a land border three-quarters of a mile long with Spain.

If he wants to be Europe minister he should probably get an atlas first.

Tobias Ellwood tells LBC…

“So Jeremy Corbyn will meet with Hamas, Hezbollah and the IRA with no preconditions, but won’t meet the British Prime Minister without her agreeing to his precondition.”
