GIBRALTAR became British territory in 1713.
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.
