GBC: "Spanish Survey Vessel Defies Navy To Spend Over Seven Hours In Gibraltar Waters

If your child or animal acts up purely to gain attention, the worst thing you can do is indulge it by over-reacting. It only encourages it to behave even more outrageously the next time.

This is a very valid point. The whole of the Latin world will be waiting in the wings for the obvious knee jerk reaction from London (as ably demonstrated by the rock ape politicos). We tend to paint ourselves into very tight corners. So this scenario is nothing new. So, for once I would like to see a little maturity from those in the driving seat.

Does our continued no response encourage them to keep pushing, how much do we choose to ignore, coming ashore, marching up main street, sticking their flag on the Governors house at sme stage we will have to get the stick from under the stairs

Just ignore the twats, bunch of posturing sweaty bastards. And if they keep arsing about with the Gib border checkpoint just sack all the Spanish employed on the Rock, that are late for work. That might square the oily gits up a bit!

perhaps we could give them the option of at least moving the border a little...might I suggest it be moved north....to say a line running roughly along the French border???

You forgot to put the qualifying sentence in bold, "that are late for work", which would not be illegal, depending on their contract. An own goal by shutting the border in that scenario.
 
If the Dons won't abide by the Treaty of Utrecht, we could always tear up the Treaty of Amiens and take Minorca back.

That's a very good 21st Century point. If I unduly acted up as a child, though, a slap round the legs limited my enthusiasm for an action replay. My dog never gained a fondness for a rolled up newspaper either; as a consequence, she rarely played up.

There is a limit to how far we can go announcing hollow demands over an RTF Channel with an escalating coefficient of petulance. A legal boarding and an appearance in Court wouldn't do any harm. Do you really think Pedro's going to get bored and bugger off?

I'm not sure that slapping members of the Guardia Civil around their legs with rolled-up newspapers will solve anything. ;-)

What happened to Rule Britannia?Too much pussy footing these days, perhaps a hook up and tow would have been the answer. Or railway track bolted to the quarterdeck ala the Icelandic cod war.

Telegraph: "Send In The Navy, Gibraltar Pleads, After Latest Spanish Incursion"

"Mr Picardo, the 41-year-old Oxford-educated, would like to see an increased Royal Navy presence in Gibraltar waters.

"More senior assets by the Royal Navy posted in Gibraltar might have a deterrent affect – it is something the government of Gibraltar has been saying for years," he told The Sunday Telegraph.
