Gibraltar is 'HOSTAGE' to Brexit, claims Spanish union chief

May moved to tamp down the warlike rhetoric Monday, saying that when it comes to the European Union, "it's definitely jaw, jaw" - a reference to Winston Churchill's dictum that "jaw, jaw" is better than "war, war". "For the Spanish, Gibraltar is an affront to their sense of national identity and their sense of sovereignty", Jack Straw, former British foreign secretary, told BBC Radio 4. U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May says Britain has no plans to go to war with Spain over Gibraltar.

Forget the 1950s, Tories threatening Spanish with an Armada over Gibraltar will take Britain back to the 1590s
Failing to slap down Howard shows May is keener to court right wing papers than our EU partners. But threatening to launch an ­Armada against the Spanish will take us back to the 1590s. The fact Howard can revel in this bloodshed to make a petty point about Brexit shows what a disastrous PM he'd have been. To liken a dispute over Gibraltar with our democratic European partner Spain to the Falklands War against a military junta in ­Argentina was crass beyond belief. Ex-Tory leader Michael Howard said we should be prepared to go to war over Gibraltar , comparing May to another female PM who took on a Spanish-speaking country!
