Madrid's Brexit ready to make claims to London over Gibraltar

65
Information resource RNS with reference to Spanish sources, reports that the possibility of making real claims in respect of Great Britain concerning the ownership of Gibraltar has become seriously discussed in the camp of the Spanish authorities. Acting Spanish Foreign Minister José Manuel García-Margallo says that it is necessary to discuss at least the joint sovereignty of London and Madrid over Gibraltar in connection with the withdrawal of Britain from the European Union.


Madrid's Brexit ready to make claims to London over Gibraltar


García-Margallo notes that the formula of joint sovereignty over Gibraltar is becoming more realistic than ever before. The Spanish Cabinet of Ministers believes that if Britain leaves the EU and Gibraltar remains solely under the jurisdiction of London, this can be a serious blow to both the economy of Gibraltar itself and the interests of Spain.

For reference: today, Gibraltar is officially considered an overseas territory of Great Britain (in fact, this is a British colony on the Iberian Peninsula). The area of ​​Gibraltar is about 6,5 sq. Km, the population is about 30 thousand people. This territory has its own currency - the Gibraltar pound, which is closely tied to the British pound sterling.

Gibraltar is a strategically important point for Britain, since its geographical position allows it to exercise control over the entrance to and exit from the Mediterranean Sea.

    Argentina may also claim for the Falklands.
    Although the process of leaving the EU of Great Britain can stretch for a couple of years, the main thing is that the process has begun. Scotland again wants to raise the issue of independence, Ireland wants to become one.
    In general - the fun begins. Cameron dug a trap into which he himself fell.
    so confused as he was when he made the statement following Brexit, I never saw him. Arrogance and arrogance were blown away by the wind!

        Also in the Parliament said that Ukraine wants to enter the European Union instead of Britain. The Turks also recalled to Cameron his statement about joining the year 3000.
        If this goes further, then soon there will remain in the EU - Poland, Romania, the Baltic states and Turkey with Ukraine as unlimited candidates.

          And this is only the beginning of the end of the European Union. Soon, in this way, sanctions against the Russian Federation will disappear on their own since there will not be the union that introduced the sanctions. Maybe this is certainly not the case. But I would like to believe

        FROM THE NETWORK:England has taken a course of isolation from the free world and now the world financial center will move to Konotop. Moreover, excellent prospects are opening up for the supply of Lviv garbage to the island. Lvov Mayor Andriy Sadovoy is working on a plan for the supply of solid waste (municipal solid waste) to Manchester. Against the background of England's exit, Ukraine is ready to lend its reliable shoulder in the person of Groisman. Our mission is to save Europe. SUGS! "

        It started along the way!
        I remembered the old joke:
        A bus is traveling, a man looked at the clock once, another, then from all the swoop to the neighbor kaaak charged ..., then another flies up and also charges from the sock ...
        Well, everyone is taken to the department, the only question is "why?"
        The first. “I’m going, a Jew comes in here (please don’t accuse me of hatred, this is an anecdote) and steps on my foot. I look at it for a minute, two, three ... well, I slapped it.”
        Second: "I was looking at this man and a Jew going, this time I looked at the clock, the second, and how he would give it to a Jew ... Well, I thought it had begun all over the country ..."

        And in the case, it suggests that it is not so simple. It’s good if this trick is sanctioned by our specialists :) but you can bend it not like Merkel with the military budget ... :)

        But in general, according to the canon of the law of the sea, Gibraltar should be Spanish. Something like the Bering Strait: exactly in the middle should pass the maritime border between Spain and Morocco.

            It would be nice if your words yes to God in the ears. "Soon" is a loose concept. The procedure for leaving the Union is not instantaneous ~ 2 years maybe.

      It will not be worse for us. Let them bite. At the expense of Gibraltar, for example, the claims of Madrid are well founded. Where the Englishwoman is and where is Spain, looking at the map it becomes clear.
      Argentina may also claim for the Falklands.
      The same applies to the Falklands, Suez, etc., as well as the geopolitical claims of the United States around the world (including, for some reason, in the Black Sea.

    The formulation of the question itself is of course interesting, but I think that excessive euphoria, about even the joint sovereignty over Gibraltar for Spain, is a question of a far from close time, at least. Firstly, the UK's exit from the EU itself is a matter of long enough, and secondly, the main "partner" of the British in "trouble" will not give up. And without belittling the expression of the will of the residents, we must not forget that the results of the referendum are of a recommendatory nature, or, as the press now writes, political.
    Something like that, colleagues, there are subjective thoughts in my head. hi

    I don’t know, I don’t know ..., for what "ears" the Spaniards will "attract" the Gibraltar theme? In connection with Britain's exit from the EU? And what? Everything is one - they will remain NATO allies. And without that, the Spaniards raised this question not for the first time, but "things are still there ..." So that Britain will ignore, most likely, and the Spaniards will not get very excited, they will not get into a "fight". Now, if any of them were going to leave NATO, the news would be more abrupt.
    In general, the issue of the ownership of Gibraltar has been for centuries, who are interested in reading: http: //cyberleninka.ru/article/n/gibraltar-v-ispanobritanskih-otnosheniy

    Spain decided to question the power of the Anglo-Saxon world or what? It is unlikely that Britain will allow a situation to arise in which this most valuable strategic object can go into sole Spanish use in the event of the weakening of the Anglo-Saxons. So there can be no talk of any agreements on sharing. And if the Spaniards want to "privatize" the strait, then, of course, they may face a severe lack of democracy in the country).

    If (first of all, the USA) they can’t extinguish the British theme with leaving the EU, then Brexit will just look like a joke compared to what it is about to begin. I think the sovereignty parade is just beginning and not only sovereignty.

    For Estonia, of course, the collapse of the European Union is a disaster - no one will beg the same money as the whole Baltic. Everything else will only get better without a clamp in the form of subsidized countries. Swedish socialism is flourishing in the European Union and people see this and do not want to live like that.
