    Just look at the photo and the body language of Jose Garcia-Margallo.

    Remind you of anyone. Demand, insist, etc.

    The Argies and the Spanish: two countries joined by common bad manners.

    I hope Hague tells him to go sling his hook and see if he catches any fish on it, but not in Gibraltar waters.

    It is taking the piss a bit. Spanish fishermen now own most of the UK fishing fleet, and seem set to take over the Falklands one. I'm shocked they don't already own the Gibaltarian fleet as it's on her doorstep.

    @Aussie Sunshine .. what's with the ALL CAPS howling? “ CLOSE THE GATES NOWWWWWW.. ” ... my god.

    So these people who party and shop in Spain (in other words, bring in money to stimulate the Spanish economy, which is in dire need or stimulus right now) are “parasites”? What planet are you living on?

    9 The thing is this... These people loathe everything Spanish and yet like to cross over to Spain to enjoy everything Spanish!! Under these circumstances the border should be closed to these individuals, and let them sun tan in their beaches. Even if Spain is loosing out in not receiving economic input from Gibraltar. Besides the Russians are moving into the Costa Del Sol who needs the Gibs.

    @ aussie sunshine... considering that the majority of Gibraltarians can speak Spanish (and enjoy visiting Spain), it's a bit weird to say they “loathe everything Spanish” -- and heated feelings aside, it's almost certainly not true.

    It's just that they prefer the Spanish as neighbours rather than masters.

    Fake aussie troll - Your Reichmistress will be pleased with your hatred....this is gooood feel the hate. All you do is spout hatred no input to the debate. Again nothing spain can do, we had the border closed for years and still survived when the nasty Spanish Right Wing dicatotrship was in power. Troll on, and remember haaaaate all thing British because you are humiliated in defeat and envy.
