In a further attempt to voice their concern over the ever growing tensions between Spain and Gibraltar within British Gibraltar Territorial Waters, the Voice of Gibraltar Group, along with the defenders of Gibraltar have responded to Europe Minister, David Lidington’s letter.
Within the letter, the two pressure groups request the Mr. Lidington understand their reservations with regards to the position of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the UK Government, towards Gibraltar. They go on to add, ‘for example you mention that the relationship the UK has with Gibraltar is based on “respect”. We believe that your use of this word is out of place, seeing as from our perspective the UK Government seems unwilling or unable to fulfill its constitutional duties with reference to Spain’s constant undermining of our laws and its open challenge to sovereignty over British Gibraltar Territorial Waters; perhaps because of Britain’s wider interests?’

Just a few moments ago, in New York, the Chief Minister Fabian Picardo addressed the UN’s Committee of 24. Mr Picardo argued that the approach and language adopted by Spain with regards to the Gibraltar situation had “no place in the modern world” and reflected a “medieval obsession.”
