    it seems all Spain and Argentina have done, in terrorising, threatening and intimidating the Falkland's and Gibraltar, is to bring them on to the world stage, and thus making it impossible for them to steal them,

    but like all failed countries, what goes around, will come around..

    @1 Briton
    Yes, they think that by kicking the Falklands and Gibraltar continuously they will stay on the floor. In fact as you point out it actually makes them more determined to get off the floor and fight back.

    But then the Latino mentality is that if you bully someone weaker you will beat them not taking into account that the British are dangerous when our asses are being kicked.

    IN fact when people are being' nice' to Britons that is when the British are at their weakest.

    The Gibraltarians and Falkland Islanders will be increasingly recognised around the world as a result.

    Thanks be to Spain and Argentina for this.

    Argentine-led initiative to highlight the ‘English occupation’ of Gibraltar and the Falkland Islands.

    Unlike Argentina who KFC is desperately whoring herself round Europe for.
    Whilst shopping for designer outfits and Botox on other people's money!

    You can't avoid the truth paulie.

    Time to pay the Paris Club.

    Tik Toc

    the funny thing is that the inhabitants of those pieces of rock covered with guano think they are “important”.
    they do not even have a proper school, but they think they are “on the world stage”..

    pathetic

    Supported by its' almost
    14 trillion dollar economic interests.

    3rd class plebs living in cabins.
    no proper schools.
    no universities.
    not even a ct scanner.

    but they think they are important.
    must be a joke

    I wonder what the welcome is like for Argentina when they go to Washington, more specifically to the Courts to defend their reneging on debts?

    Oh no! Not the missing CT scanner argument!

    Lol!

    Total fail. You are only good at making yourself look stupid.
    A university on the Falklands? Ask them, they would probably say they don't need one.
    This thread is about Gibraltar anyway. Fool.

    @17 Paul

    A Martian is offered the choice of two passports: a BOT one, or an Argentine one. They have to pick only one.

    Which would they choose and why?

    It could depend on if their flying saucer is allowed into the Argentine ports or not

    I thought this was about Gibraltar? Where

    - we have a CT scanner
    - we don't live in cabins
    - we have proper schools
    - we don't have a university

    But then, we can't justify a university with 30,000 inhabitants. So, they go to universities in the UK. Proper universities, with good reputations. And their fees and travel are paid for by the Gibraltar government.

    So what's your point,paulcedron?
