Britain, Spain renew rocky dispute over Gibraltar

August 13, 2013

It has been 30 years since Britain last fought a war over the remnants of a colonial empire on which the sun never set.

Although Spain hasn’t explicitly threatened a remake of the 1982 Falklands War between Britain and Argentina in its own centuries-old colonial-era dispute, over Gibraltar, the belligerent talk coming out of Ol’ Blighty suggests that Margaret Thatcher’s famed “Falklands spirit” is alive and well.

In the wake of the latest round of argle-bargle with Argentina’s former colonial master, Britain sent warships to the Mediterranean on Monday and weighed legal action against Spain.

“Hands off our Rock — that’s what I say,” London Mayor Boris Johnson wrote in The Telegraph newspaper Sunday, pooh-poohing official claims that the timing was a coincidence and that Britain was not planning the Spanish Armada in reverse.
