Conservative Gibraltar MEP Julie Girling has called on British holidaymakers to boycott their summer holidays in Spain and either take a staycation in the UK or visit another part of Europe as a means to protest against what she calls the ‘increasingly outlandish’ threats against British territory Gibraltar and its citizens by the Spanish Government and Police.
Now, after Spain issued a further series of menacing proposals, including the imposition of a €50 charge to cross the border
and the closure of Spanish airspace to Gibraltar flights, Mrs Girling has called for people power and a boycott of Spain.
“There has been enough talking, now there must be action,” she rallied in a statement. “I urge constituents across the UK to consider taking their summer holidays elsewhere this year – Spain is not on our side."
"Citizens of Gibraltar will not stand for the Spanish bullying and intimidation. The imposition of a €50 charge to cross the border, and the closure of Spanish airspace to Gibraltar flights is clearly impeding the movement of workers to and from Gibraltar, I believe the European Commission should launch legal action against the Spanish Government.
