Russian Roulette

In the event that the UK leaves the EU following the referendum on June 23rd, the acting Minister for Foreign Affairs, José Manuel García-Margallo (always known in foreign circles as ‘Motormouth Margallo’) says he will increase his Government’s pressure on Gibraltar ‘...on the following morning...’, since the colony would be, de facto, outside the European Union. Spain has long claimed sovereignty over the Rock, signed over to the UK in perpetuity in 1713 by Philip of Spain. The ABC has the story. Note to Margallo: there are 30,000 Gibraltarians living on the Peñon, and between the two Spanish enclaves in Northern Africa, merrily claimed by Morocco (and no doubt ISIS), there is a total of 160,000 Melillenses and Ceutís. Spain often produces hollow arguments about these cities being totally different for any number of reasons, but would Spain be stupid enough to play a game of Russian roulette? The United Kingdom would no doubt be delighted to supply the bullet in those circumstances.
Another point worth consideration - in Gibraltar, the unemployment is 3%, where in next door's La Línea de la Concepción, it is at over 40%. Who I wonder has a better government?
