Quotes

"Over the years our group has been instrumental, via public and behind the scenes campaigns, in seeing through fundamental improvements at the Oil Refinery as a result of using EU pressure, cross border campaigns and gathering of scientific data. It is still necessary for the ESG to highlight particular episodes of heavy contamination to the EC as they occur, as well as periodically check that ongoing improvements are indeed happening to bring the plant up to modern environmental standards, as it is realistically impossible to shut down this monster."
"The Commission remains preoccupied over the situation at the frontier" commented the EU over queues which can last up to an hour for those entering and leaving Gibraltar on foot and considerably more for those in motor vehicles...
The newspaper quoted a Spanish government official as saying: "Every Gibraltarian, including unweaned babies, would each have to smoke nine packets a day."
...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."
