Avoid holidays in Spain urges MEP
11:00am Saturday 10th August 2013 in News
AN MEP who represents Wiltshire – and Gibraltar – is urging patriotic people to enjoy ‘staycations’ rather than visit Spain on holiday.
Julie Girling says her urgent call is the result of the recent sabre-rattling by Spain against Gibraltar.
Spain has issued a series of proposals, including the imposition of a €50 charge to cross the border and close Spanish airspace to Gibraltar’s flights.
Mrs Girling said “The European Commission should launch legal action against the Spanish government.
“I urge constituents across the UK to consider taking their summer holidays elsewhere this year.”
She adds the behaviour from the Spanish Government is ‘bullying and intimidation’.
In recent months, a Spanish police boat had opened fire on a jet skier on the British waters, whilst patrol boats were also launched, invading the Rock.
