Quotes

...Noting the new plans for the border, a statement issued by Gibraltar’s government said: "It is expected that in practice this will apply mainly to EU nationals who live in Spain and who work in Gibraltar - the bulk of whom are Spanish."
...is, as a matter of policy, deliberately impacting on the economy of a British Overseas Territory," said a report by the Foreign Affairs Committee. "It is time for the government to get off the fence and take a tougher lin."
A. Watts writes "It is expensive visiting places in our vast continent so our trips to Broome are every two years (thanks to frequent flyer points) and Cairns and Perth trips on Jetstar's 'take a friend for free' deals."
The Chief Minister, Hon Fabian Picardo MP, said: "It is important for Gibraltar to get across its message to all shades of political opinion in Spain. I sought meetings with all political parties in Spain whilst the Deputy Chief Minister worked on meeting with newly elected Members of the European Parliament and developing the Gibraltar presence in Brussels. In Madrid the Partido Popular have once again shown in their public statements that they are not interested in any dialogue with us by entirely rejecting our request for a meeting, without even the courtesy of replying to our request. UPyD originally agreed to meet, but appear to have felt unable to stand upup to the pressure applied by PP and its media satellites."
