Should have sent a Vanguard to Patrol the Beach at Barcelona

The bloody dagos need to be taught another sharp lesson.

They haven’t been able to win a war in hundreds of years, including a civil war, and only when foreigners came to do the fighting and no one can get the buggers out of bed.

The chief minister of Gibraltar is receiving “constant” death threats on the internet, it has emerged, as a Royal Navy warship arrived in the British territory ahead of exercises in the Mediterranean.

Fabian Picardo, Gibraltar’s chief minister, confirmed that he and his family have received a stream of death threats as the row with Spain over border controls has intensified. 

Despite saying that the abuse has been “constant”, he said that he has ignored the online abuse as it is “one of the things that goes with the job these days if you’re a politician”.

Royal Navy warship HMS Westminster, a Type 23 frigate, has arrived in Gibraltar a day after more than 40 commercial Spanish boats staged a protest over a controversial reef that has sparked a diplomatic row between Britain and Spain.

The vessel left Portsmouth naval base in Hampshire six days ago to join nine other vessels taking part in a pre-planned international training exercise called Cougar ’13 in the Mediterranean and Gulf.

Gibraltar authorities sunk 70 concrete blocks late last month with a view to preventing fishing in the area for environmental reasons and to boost stocks.

They claim that in fact only one boat regularly fished in the area and that it used illegal dragging methods to harvest shellfish in a protected zone.

Since the reef was created Spain has imposed stringent checks to traffic crossing the border, a move that Downing Street has said is “disproportionate and politically motivated”.
