Cougar 13 was always been planned for now the fact Gib situation is going is just something that happened.

Stirring sight to see the Lusty heading off to show a presence!:dance: (if only it had a few Harriers aboard.......!):sad1:
 
The most telling part of that Guardian piece is the Comments section at the bottom. The sad thing is that those ill/misinformed, ignorant and largely semi literate Posters are legally and morally entitled to vote in general elections. Just my humble opinion, of course.

If you think that's a poor gathering of minds, don't ever visit Yahoo news and it's associated comments section then. It's seems to me that when the Large Hadron Collider was switched on and the scientists dumped their protons believing nothing had happened, a magnet effect began at Yahoo news sucking Britain's greatest anii into one place, illiteracy and all. They've been stuck there ever since, exchanging idiot opinions on absolutely everything. Judging by their spelling and sentence construction, they could all just still be trying to crack Enigma codes.

Back on topic, will anybody really shed a tear if we hand back Gibraltar? It's rubbish. Ceuta's way nicer.

Yes, it is important we preserve Gibralter's sovreignty but we don't need confrontation with our Spanish friends/allies.
Anyone see the HMS Coincidence cartoon in today's Times? I may have it framed

Having spent some time there I found that the average Gibraltarian has more faces than the Guildhall clock, let Spain have it back or lease it to the Yanks for 99 years.
Lived in Spain for a few years got on a lot better with the Spanish than with the Gibbos.
