Failing to defend the area does have further ramifications. We sent the wrong message in 1982 look where that got us. Furthermore just post Falklands 1982/1983 we were off Gib on Brilliant when the Spanish Navy held a large exercise off Gibraltar. We had to take precautions way back then. Definately a case for gunboat diplomacy.

Remember that well.Saw them out of the Caleta Palace window ( being a sundodger ) and I seem to remember Invincible/Illustrious steaming through them with a couple of Harriers in the air to get into port. Poxy ships they had as well, lots of ex-USN Hobarts and the like.
