Incredible but true! The European Union is siding with Spain over its claim over Gibraltar. What did the British government expect? Many on the European continent believe that Britain is abandoning Europe and is pulling out of the club. So isn’t it quite normal that the European Union would side with club member Spain rather than departing member Britain? The latest twist in the Brexit nightmare involves the European Union stating that Gibraltar is a colony and the EU has put its weight behind Spain’s sovereignty claims. Well it was to be expected. All I hope is that the Gibraltarians, who voted overwhelmingly to remain part of the European Union in the referendum, are protected by the British government.
