British people - Gibraltar requests your support
In an advert placed in 'The Times' and other newpapers today by the Gibraltar Government, Gibraltarians are requesting that you E mail a brief letter of support against proposed deals with Spain over the sovereignity of Gibraltar.
you can do this by E mailing:
they point out in the advert that :
Gibraltar has been British since 1704,
is self-governing, politically stable, economically prosperous and part of the EU,
is financially self-sufficient-costing the UK taxpayer nothing,
is a strategic military base,
has unilaterally, unequivacally supported Britain in all her wars and conflicts since before the Napoleonic War right through to the Falklands war...(notably in the Second World War and as a NATO base)
i would also add "a referendum was held at which the people of Gibraltar were asked whether they wanted to remain British or be handed over to Spain. Over 12,000 people voted for Britain, with only 44 choosing the Spanish option"
virtually the entire population recently took to the streets to proclaim they wished to remain British...
GIBRALTAR IS BRITISH
please show your support.........
