Drones (Multicopters or UAVs) are quite popular now but flight times are limited as are payloads, could carry a few rotten eggs etc.

Spain has more than it's share of rotten eggs

Drones are basically banned in Gibraltar.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), otherwise known as “Drones”, “Quadcopters” or “Octocopters”, are now widely available for sale to the general public. Although not classed as prohibited or restricted imports, their use locally is subject to the Civil Aviation (Air Navigation) Regulations 2009 and they cannot be used without specific authorisation from the Director of Civil Aviation in Gibraltar to fly them.

Although largely advertised as “toys”, UAVs are considered to be aircraft by the laws of Gibraltar.

Spain has backed Argentina’s call for sovereignty talks with the UK over the Falklands, insisting that it wants the same in respect of Gibraltar.

The British Government has repeatedly vowed to uphold the rights and wishes of both Gibraltar and the Falklands to remain British and determine their own future.

Britain believes in democracy, Spain and Argentina don't

The Campo de Gibraltar must have good neighbourly relations with Gibraltar, a key driver of employment in the region, according to Luís Ángel Fernández, the Partido Popular chairman of the Mancomunidad de Municipios

“But above all, we must consider Gibraltar as the big industry that it is for employment in the region.”

The number of frontier workers has been on an increase throughout last year. Back in January last year, the total was 10,520 - but by last month the figure was 12,040.

There are workers of more than 60 nationalities crossing into Gibraltar daily, mainly Spanish who top the list with nearly 7,000.

People will say that this must be the number of Spaniards on regular employment, but there must be a few more thousands who cross into Gibraltar on a self-employed basis etc.

Official figures indicate that only 151 Gibraltarians cross from Spain, but many would think this is a low figure. Be that as it may, the number of ‘other British’ totals nearly 2,500.

Those of other nationalities go from just one to over 600 Portuguese.

The European Hockey Federation is carrying out an investigation after learning the Spanish Federation for Hockey has written to clubs in Spain reminding them that they are prohibited from having contact with Gibraltar.

The Real Federacion Española de Hockey states it will not authorise any tournament, be it official or friendly,that involves the participation of a team from Gibraltar. The circular adds this applies to Federations, clubs, teams, players, coaches and referees

David Cameron has failed in his 3-year effort to persuade the majority of UK Overseas Territories (OT) to clampdown on tax evasion and other corruptible practices.

The issue has again become news with a somewhat frustrated UK Prime Minister who is organising an international “anti-corruption” summit in London later in the year, with the expected attendance of world leaders.


Of course, the Gibraltar Government responded to Mr. Cameron’s call for compliancy and the setting up of timetables, registers and what have you.

It was never going to be difficult for Gibraltar; Cameron must have forgot, that this Overseas Territory is the only one that complies with all EU laws, including those financially related ones…which potentially, makes the Rock of Gibraltar, as corruptible as the United Kingdom or any other EU member state!
