Spanish flag flies over Gibraltar
British sovereign territory violated, military action likely
True patriots prepare to choke on your beef and oyster pie of olde England because, by the Lord Harry and Saint George, the Spanish flag today flies over the sacred Rock of Gibraltar:
The Spaniards' tenure of Gib will, mercifully, be short. As we speak, HMS Eurosceptic is preparing a retaliatory bombardment of the popular coastal resort of Torremolinos while three Vulcan bombers have just left Ascension Island on a mission to rain terrible airborne vengeance on the Googleplex. There are also unconfirmed reports that a crack team of SAS 3D modellers will this afternoon plant a gigantic Union Jack on the island of Perejil, claiming it for Her Imperial Majestyness Liz II, gawd bless yer ma'am. ®
A hearty "huzzah", an extra ration of grog and a signed photo of Lord Nelson for true patriot John Webster, who alerted us to this shameless act of piracy.
We did give the Soanish back Minorca (as part of the Peace of Aimeins), so they should be happy with what they got.
I would say that it would be fair for the Spanish to have Gibraltar if they give us Madrid, Barcelona, and enough sities that the number of people who want to be part of the UK is as great as it is in Gibraltar. And good luck to the Spanish if they can do it.
Maybe the solution would be to destroy their navy again? We don't need Admiral Hornblower, we ned Lord Nelson adn Sir Francis Drake.
"given our sovereignty away to the EU"??
Let's not forget that the country that controls our nukes, deploys our military, owns our media, determines our economic policy and pulls the strings of our Prime Minister is no member of the EU, which despite it's faults at least has the good manners to allow us to vote in it's parliamentary elections.
I'd rather have a democratic legal relationship with foreign countries than a "special" one thanks very much.
