GI­BRAL­TAR be­came Bri­tish ter­ri­tory in 1713.

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

The Span­ish have al­ways dis­puted this fact.

This week Fabian Pi­cardo, Chief Min­is­ter of Gi­bral­tar, asked the Bri­tish govern­ment to send gun­boats to the Rock to put a halt to Span­ish ag­gres­sion.

We need to stand up for the peo­ple of Gi­bral­tar be­cause they are as Bri­tish as us – just like the Falk­land Is­landers.

We should just ask Gi­bral­tar to join the UK al­to­gether. That would shut the Span­ish up for good! POOR old John In­verdale. I bet he didn’t re­alise the furore he would cause when he said Wim­ble­don Women’s cham­pion Marion Bar­toli was “never go­ing to be a looker”.

I don’t re­mem­ber such out­rage when les­bian rac­ing pre­sen­ter Clare Bald­ing hu­mil­i­ated Grand National win­ning jockey Liam Tread­well by telling him he had bad teeth.

You are more likely to be tarred with the sex­ism brush if you are white, straight and male… step for­ward John In­verdale.
