Seems more likely that Gib will be cut loose in about 3 months. A few days of nobody crossing in from Spain will destroy the economy there, and England will have way too many other problems to even notice.

Also the Falkland Islands. Recall that on Thatcher's watch, the Navy could still project a reasonable amount of sea power. Argentina will be all over it.
