Gibraltar’s Got a Working Covid App

Gibraltar’s administration has successfully got its act together and launched a functioning track-and-trace Coronavirus app; meanwhile the UK government counts its £12 million losses from the failed first NHSX attempt. Guess which administration abandoned centralisation and used the private sector…

According to the FTthe app was swiftly constructed using Ireland’s codebase, meaning a cost of only £100,000 for the project – a cost of £2.96 per Gibraltar citizen – and already has well over 20% take-up. One bit of Britain now has a functioning tracking app – and it cost 1% of the failed UK Government’s app…

So Spain, What About Ceuta?

The Spanish have long argued – years before the referendum – that Gibraltar existing as a British enclave means the “disruption of national unity and territorial integrity” of Spain, and that it hurts the Spanish economy. There is just one question Theresa May and Boris Johnson need ask their Spanish counterparts: what about Ceuta? Ceuta (and another city, Melilla) are two low tax Spanish enclaves on the northern coast of Morocco. They are the EU’s only land border with Africa. Morocco want them back, but the two enclaves are autonomous, have their own governments, and return deputies and senators to the Spanish parliament in Madrid. Well, Spain, do Ceuta and Melilla disrupt the economy, national unity and territorial integrity of Morocco?

Miriam: “Two Sides” to Gibraltar

Miriam Clegg, who is being used increasingly by TV producers as an ‘expert’ pro-Remain talking head, made some revealing comments on Gibraltar on Mair this morning. She reckons there are “two sides” to the dispute and defended Spain’s apparently “conciliatory tone”. Brave tactic for the wife of Britain’s chief zombie Remainer. The only “two sides” are the right one and the wrong one…
