The Spanish government have caused mayhem by stopping every vehicle crossing the Spanish/Gibraltarian border. About 10,000 vehicles were stopped, causing 6 hour traffic jams in the town.
In recent weeks Spanish police have entered Gibraltarian waters and shot at a jetskier, Spanish fishermen have entered Gibraltar waters to try and disrupt work on an artificial reef which will stop them illegally fishing the Bay of Gibraltar and Spanish fighter planes have “buzzed” the Rock.
The British government have complained and told the Spanish not to do it again which means bugger all because the same thing happens every time they do it and they take no notice. The Royal Navy need to take a nonsense approach to incursions into Gibraltarian waters and fire on any ship that illegally enters the Bay, be it police, military or civilian. And if the Spanish government wants to cause trouble at the border then let’s block it from the Gibraltar side too but selectively so it only inconveniences the Spanish. Gibraltar buys more from Spain than Spain buys from Gibraltar and Spain is broke whereas Gibraltar isn’t.
