I see it every day. I experience it every time I leave my house, the office, or a meeting. Cycling is genuinely - and I’m not just saying it because I would be expected to – on the up in Gibraltar. Speaking of going uphill, I’ve recently been getting around, family and all, with an electric cargo bike. Taking the plunge and cajoling my long-suffering daughter into being a test subject, she has dutifully (even if a little embarrassingly) agreed to be ridden around in the bike. It has been nothing short of a revelation. The ease with which you can climb the few hills we come across in our daily lives, even when loaded up with boxes of manifestos, is remarkable, and a clear illustration of why e-bikes generally are taking the world by storm.

Nowadays it is all too common on social media to see footage of animal cruelty, inhumane actions on defenceless animals that suffer terribly. New animal cruelty laws in Scotland will see abusers jailed for up to 5 years and the GSD is in agreement that much more needs to be done in Gibraltar to protect animals.
