Linked is an article by a Gibraltarian who left Gibraltar at the time I arrived

We are unique and Spain has to recognise that

An Interesting article from a " real " Gibraltarian. I wonder just how many of the current residents would accept that as Gibraltarians they should not regard themselves as British ??
Food for thought ??

I carry a British Passport, but I can't say that I truly identify with being "British". I really don't identify myself as "belonging" to any specific nationality. But that's just me.

I don't reckon Gib would be for me (but then again, I haven't tried it). Having said that, I reckon "native" Gibraltarians have just as much right to identify "Gibraltar" as their homeland as anyone else. And I see no reason why Brits, Spaniards, or anyone else who lives there to identify themselves as "Gibraltarian" if they feel that way.

The term Gibraltarian applies only to people who are on the official Register of Gibraltarians, they are also British.

Others are Gibraltar residents British or not.

Gibraltarians are entitled to an ID card that can be used as a passport in Europe.

Residents also have ID cards but these are not accepted for travel.

Similar to the situation in Spain with the NIE

That's a technical description. I was referring to what nationality one considers themselves. For example, I know a few Germans who have lived here so long, they consider themselves far more "Mallorquin" than German, but they are technically extranjeros.

There you go then, a light breeze, a wee drop of rain and fairly comfortable temperatures.
Not a bad day at all .............compared to my place back in the UK.

Well considering there were 3600 Brits onboard I would imagine it's the best weather most have seen since the summer of 76

Some on this forum will be aware that Gibraltar became the 54th member of UEFA in 2013 after 14 years of Spanish opposition.

Well shortly we will be applying for recognition by FIFA and it appears Spain is up to it's tricks again

Ahead of Court of Arbitration Hearing: Spain already canvassing FIFA members against Gibraltar entry

Good link,
Sad attitude.
Might have thought they'd have more constructive things to do with their time considering the state of the country, though I imagine there's quite a bit of green eye when they compare themselves with their tiny neighbours.

I see that you did not report the cavalier and very dangerous act of a Gibraltar policeman who discharged a live round in the airport.
Censorship ???
