Commonwealth Day: EU Flag Replaced With Commonwealth Flag In Gibraltar

The flag of the European Union at different points in Gibraltar has been lowered today and replaced by the flag of the Commonwealth. This is to mark Commonwealth Day which will be commemorated on Monday and which is a Public Holiday. It has been traditional for the Commonwealth flag to fly on that day over No 6 Convent Place, which is the seat of Government in Gibraltar.

However, this year the Government decided to expand that symbolic gesture by additionally flying the Commonwealth flag at the border, Princess Caroline’s Battery, the John Mackintosh Hall and Duke of Kent House as well.

If Spain uses veto to exclude Gibraltar from Brexit deal, the Spanish themselves would put at risk the rights of EU nationals, including Spaniards, in Gibraltar

Should anyone be surprised that at the Brexit talks this week, the EU came out supporting the Spanish position

When the EU offered Gibraltar over £30 million to try and gain support for sovereignty deal

Spain will not use the Brexit negotiations to pursue its sovereignty aspirations, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said yesterday during a press conference in which he also appeared to signal his government’s readiness to engage in dialogue with Gibraltar.

Asked about sovereignty and Brexit discussions relating to the Rock, Mr Rajoy spoke of future conversations “with” Gibraltar, rather than ‘about’ Gibraltar, although he did not elaborate.

If such engagement materialised it would be a significant development given the Partido Popular’s past reticence for direct contact with Gibraltar.

As EU approves Brexit transition guidelines, Rajoy hints at dialogue with Gibraltar – Gibraltar Chronicle

A ‘leaked’ Spanish document justifies the Gibraltar Government taking special restrictive measures if Spain maintains its Brexit crusade against Gibraltar, focusing on ‘the possibility of the Rock taking action against the rights of European citizens’.

The document was leaked from the Association of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises in La Linea (Apymell).

Apymell President Lorenzo Pérez, in response to PANORAMA questions, confirmed that the ‘internal’ document existed but was yet to be presented to the Cross-Frontier Group

SPANISH GOVERNMENT PUTS PRESSURE ON EU

“The striking coincidences of the document with the rhetoric from the government of Gibraltar does not remain in the number of workers or references to unemployment in the Campo de Gibraltar, but comes to accuse the Spanish Government that ‘has exerted and continues to exert enormous pressure on the EU (apparently even threatening the possibility of not signing the final Brexit agreements) in an attempt to broaden the scope of Paragraph 24”

The Rock is fast becoming a playground for the mega-rich but what is it that attracts these high-net-worth individuals to set up business or buy property in Gibraltar?

The answer is simple, they pay less in tax. A high-net-worth individual (now known as Category 2) with net assets of at least £2 million will only be taxed on the first £80,000 of assessable income, which is generously capped at £27,560.

Anything over and above is tax free, however, the super-rich must first buy a luxury property on the Rock before having access to such a luxurious and elitist system.

Indeed, nowadays they are not required to spend a single minute on Gibraltarian soil and can merely purchase a millionaire mansion to access the Rock’s beneficial elite tax system.

Furthermore, Category 2 individuals can rent out their newly acquired property to a foreign source and reap 100% of the benefits, with no payable tax.

Add to that no inheritance tax; no wealth tax; no capital gains tax; no gift tax; no VAT; as well as other benefits and it is easy to see why they are attracted to Gibraltar.

They attack Gibraltar’s finance centre but - SPAIN HAS ‘FINANCIAL PARADISE’ IN THEIR OWN BACKYARD

The Spanish government likes attacking Gibraltar for being what they call ‘a fiscal paradise’, yet they keep silent about their own ‘paradise’.

By establishing themselves in the Canaries, companies can save 84% of the tax they would have paid if operating within the Spanish mainland and 90% if they operated from countries such as Germany, France and Italy.

So there you are, the same Spanish Government that is forever attacking the Rock sees nothing wrong of their territory having lower company taxes than Gibraltar. Political hypocrisy, yes sir!

What Brexit? More Spaniards getting jobs in Gibraltar despite United Kingdom’s departure

From December 2016 to December 2017, there was a 5.65% increase in cross-border workers of all nationalities, from 12,356 to 13,054 people. If only Spanish citizens are counted, that percentage rises to 11%, from 7,227 in December 2016 to 8,024 in December 2017.
Jorge Moreno had already been working for nearly four years as a carpenter for the public construction company GJBS. For the 57-year-old from La Línea, this job was a lifesaver after setting up a family business that “went down the drain.” He earns around €1,400 a month, “when there are colleagues in the same category in Spain who make €800.”
Added to that is a series of new private and public works projects (housing, education and sports infrastructure) in a place where only 20 people are registered as unemployed out of a total workforce of 24,000

Bordering on the ridiculous - Gill on Gib

Breaching my European Human Rights

I assume that the checking of passports into Gib on Monday was not to check for criminality or border control but to audit the nationalities for their upcoming European Union queue and non European queue. Which incidentally breaches my European Human Rights. How dare a European Government use their powers to stop and search me (a - for the time being - European) for my documentation for their admin purposes. It's reminds me of Nazi Germany. If I had more time in the day, I'd be putting a claim in, like other Europeans have done in the past. I'm going to miss this part of the European Union the most, so many rules and regulations, one never needs to go to work, and you can just point out their lack of due diligence and make a claim every year. Brilliant!
