Gibraltar: Theresa May has let the Spanish use the Rock to roll right over her.

Once upon a time we were told we have all the bargaining chips. Now the chips are down and our representatives are giving away everything – including their credibility:

The devil’s in the detail so here’s what has happened, according to The Observer:

“The British ambassador to the EU, Sir Tim Barrow, wrote to concede that Gibraltar would not necessarily be covered by a future trade deal with the EU.

“The development gives Spain a veto over Gibraltar benefiting from a future trade and security agreement between Brussels and the British government.

“The Spanish leader, Pedro Sánchez, reacted immediately, claiming the UK would now have to open talks on “joint sovereignty” of Gibraltar, over which Spain has had a claim since the military dictatorship of Francisco Franco.”

Joint sovereignty over Gibraltar with Spain? Who voted for that because we know Gibraltar never did!

Of course, Theresa May will swear vehemently that she has not offered anything of the kind. But we’ve heard that before – notably when she has assured us that she will not give way on a particular point of the Brexit negotiations, only to give way almost immediately afterwards.

She has given away our rights and privileges.

She has given away our economic advantages.

And now she is giving away our territories and citizens.

Like the rest of her Brexit plan, this is nothing but a betrayal of the British people – in this case, the British people living on Gibraltar.
