In Defence of Gibraltar: Time to Hit Hard
by The Editor
The past weekend has been witness to an escalation in the Spanish campaign against the Rock. A standoff at sea, queues of up to seven hours in the border, and the beating of a British subject, have finally managed to dispel any doubts as to Madrid's intentions, which are simply to resort to force, and the threat of force, to achieve what they will never achieve in the ballot box. It is clear that the people of Gibraltar will never surrender, and that this latest string of incidents will only serve to steel their determination to resist the common, or garden, dictators in their quest for domination. Having said that, the absolute confidence in our final victory should in no way serve as an excuse for inaction. It is thus necessary to examine the ways in which Madrid may be successfully deterred from further aggression.
