The Foreign Secretary has warned Spain over its refusal to allow cruise ships which have visited Gibraltar to dock in Spanish ports.
Jack Straw issued the warning after talks with his Spanish counterpart Miguel Angel Moratinos in London.
Stop! Or I shall warn you again. Really - dealing with our government must be like playing cards with a labrador. How can you lose against folks this spineless ?
Officials claim the move is an attempt by Spain's new Socialist government to strangle the colony's economy.
Britain regards the cruise liner boycott as illegal, and has not ruled out legal action as a last resort.
That'll chill their blood in Madrid.
And a vote of thanks too to the EU. We've got HIV+ smackheads from Spain claiming full welfare and treatment benefits, plus Spaniards pillaging our fishing grounds, but Brussels doesn't have a view on a case of outright thuggery by the Spanish. Remind me again why we pay all that cash.
