As soon as EMR and I get involved here, the figures start hitting 200+ every 24 hours.

The Gibraltar Government should sack Fred and sponsor me and EMR. We give the public what it wants.
but you cannot draw any new posters into the discussion so whatdoes it prove other than people drop by, think "Oh my golly gosh, those two are back again" and go away laughing.

You should ask Fred, he posts some great photo's taken in Gib. Sadly none of the fishing boat towing away that concrete block under a flotation bag.

Photo evidence is great the BBC once showed the " huge spanish fishing fleet that is dredging every living thing from the waters around Gib"
It consisted of a few very small boats that would have been more at home on the Serpentine rather than at sea.

Britain will expose ‘utterly unreasonable’ Spain to EU partners

Britain will continue to ‘resist with complete resolution’ any attempt by Spain to exclude Gibraltar airport from aviation measures, the British Government has made clear.

In doing so, it will focus on the EU rights of Gibraltarians and seek to expose to other European governments the ‘utterly unreasonable’ actions taken by Spain against Gibraltar.

“One of the prime ways of doing that, particularly for the Europeans, is to focus on the rights of Gibraltarians as EU citizens,” said David Lidington, Britain’s Minister for Europe.

“That provides a route into this argument where it is hard to say that the EU has no interest and takes it beyond being just a bilateral UK-Spain dispute.”

The fishermen locally have zero regard for the regulations and regularly fish within the bathing areas of the main Torremolinos beaches (but not where there are lifeguards on their towers). Sometimes there are several. They appear most times to be dragging the bottom, a practice that I believe to be forbidden all along the coast. I also have some pictures of them fishing in the bathing areas if anyone is interested. I wonder if illegal fishing, and endangering lives of swimmers with nets and propellers etc. is common practice on the Costa.

Deputy Chief Minister for meetings with EC & European Parliament

Date: 07 July 2014 at 07:55

The Deputy Chief Minister has placed the continuing controls at the frontier at the top of his agenda for meetings with the European Commission and in the European Parliament.

Dr Joseph Garcia met with the Commissioner for Home Affairs, Cecilia Malmström, who’s looking into the situation at the frontier. Dr Garcia stressed the fact that, unlike Spain, Gibraltar had complied with the recommendations made by the team of EU Inspectors in September last year.

He also expressed concern that Spain will again use the delays at the frontier in the weeks ahead in order to target Gibraltar’s tourism sector during the summer.

The Deputy Chief Minister handed the Commissioner a dossier with the frontier data for the month of June. This includes information on maximum incoming and outgoing vehicular delays, and pedestrian queues, as well as photographic evidence and media reports. He made the point that despite lengthy queues practically every day of June, there were no delays on the 1st of July when the British Minister for Europe visited the Rock, and no delay on the 2nd of July when the Commission Inspectors were there. The information pack included recent public statements against the queues made by the Mayor of La Linea and the Junta de Andalucia.

Dr Garcia said this was the second Government visit to Brussels in the last five months. He added timing was important and it was crucial to update the Commissioner face-to-face on a number of matters. He also announced that a further trip to the European institutions by students from Gibraltar was planned for after the summer.

Spain is blocking Britain’s efforts to opt back in to the European Arrest Warrant, which controls the extradition of criminal suspects between EU member states.

For Britain to opt back in, all other states have to agree.

But the Government suspects the Spanishwill try to put pressure on Britain to offer concessions over Gibraltar. Those close to Cameron are emphatic that the British position will not change.

If Britain has not been allowed back into the Arrest Warrant by the end of this year, this country willstruggle to extradite alleged criminals and terror suspects from other EU member states.

This could cause major security problems and is particularly alarming given the current warnings about terrorism in Europe.

The one silver lining for Cameron is that if Britain is not allowed back into the European Arrest Warrant, there’ll be no need for him to confront Tory Eurosceptics over the issue.

It’s estimated that between 40 and 80 MPs would defy the party whip to vote against Britain rejoining the scheme.

Spain blocks UK European Arrest Warrant opt back

Author: GBC

Date: 07 July 2014 at 08:26

Spain is blocking Britain’s efforts to opt back in to the European Arrest Warrant, reportedly over Gibraltar. The system controls the extradition of criminal suspects between EU member states; police chiefs consider it to be a vital tool for bringing serious criminals to justice.

Britain formally opts out of 133 EU home affairs rules, and has to opt back in to 35 chosen by parliament. But for Britain to opt back in, all other states have to agree. And – according to the Mail on Sunday – the UK Government suspects the Spanish will try to put pressure on it to offer concessions over Gibraltar.

The popular Sunday paper says this could cause major security problems and is particularly alarming given the current warnings about terrorism in Europe. Locally, the system was used recently to extradite a woman charged with child abduction.

It is complete and utter mischievous rubbish to suggest that Spain wants concessions over Gibraltar for this.

You disingenuously fail to tell us that France and Germany as well as Spain have all expressed doubts over the viability of Britain opting out of 133 European home affairs rules and back in to just 35.

There is absolutely no evidence of Spanish pressure over Gibraltar.

You really must make up your mind on where you stand on Europe. On other threads you want us out of the EU, and yet here you are complaining that the Europeans won't allow us to pool our sovereignty with them over European Arrest Warrants.

They'll probably ask him about his Tesla, and if he parks it next to his Jaguar and four other Mercedes. They will probably also ask how many miles of roads there are in Gibraltar.

They will then probably turn their questions to the £4.5 million plush upgrade to his offices, and his £4.26 million payroll for his cronies, up from £2.2 million in 2012.

If he hasn't run screaming from the building, they will also probably quiz him on some of the expenses he has racked up - including legal and consultancy fees up from £666k in 2012 to £2.25 million, £1.3 million for travel and entertainment, and £475k for "Media Monitoring".

'Cos the docile Gibraltar press won't.

Judging by the above it looks like Gib has much more in common with Spain than the UK.

and yet only a couple of posts ago you were agreeing with me about the way diplomacy works.
You really must get your head round that because something isn't reported in a newspaper it doesn't mean it didn't happen.

and even that headline from the Telegrief uses the words "could be".
And if they refuse a return to the EAW then they will have to go the long way round when they want to get their hands on their own crims.

But if the UK does return to the EAW I hope they run courses on how to use it, IIRC they had more failures due to defective paperwork than they did successes.

What's to laugh at ? You doubt my figures ? They're the same ones Daniel Feetham, opposition leader in Gibraltar, used in his reply to the Gibraltar Government Budget speech in the Gibraltar Parliament on the 1st of July - carefully censored out by our 'Purveyor of all things Honest and Truthful from the Magic Kingdom'.
