Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There is this joke about self-determination: "They" is a Gibraltar gov organist named the Chronicle.

For the past 2 years Gib gov PR presented itself as UK unionist, DUP-lite talking points. All the "same-deal or no-deal" shadow boxing without a "sovereign" gov, just one part-time MP, and none of the idiotic belligerence about border surveillance.

No common cause with UK "devolved" gov and disrespected constituent Remainers -- not even in NI!

No GFA-like wedge dividing Tory gov and Gib gov. Gib gov rejects EU member patron ES (substitute threat of ES hostile "annex" and ritual allegiance to US piracy for bi-lateral "state-craft").

No invisible UK-EU border for the "too wee" pennisula.

No US AID. No EU aid.

So. Gib delegations for "recognition" are left agitating UK for special travel reimbursements.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
