    Royal Navy Task Force to be Sent to Gibraltar?

    Economy not doing well? Currency in trouble? Unemployment high? Protesters on the streets?

    If you are in government and you’re suffering from the above...

    ...you need to provoke a diplomatic argument over a small British colony! :diablo:

    No need for the task force. Their country is so close to collapse all it would need is a gentle economic push off a cliff

    Was there at the border opening all those years ago we (the RAF) were there to show the flag, but we're not there so to speak, so our bosses idea to put a 4 ship up over the opening ceremony ensured a lot of dummies got spat out.

    Task Force? A flotilla of rowing boats is probably all we could muster.

    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

    Just tell them we'll get everyone to vote for their Eurovision entry, tomorrow, so they have the expense of next year's contest, and they'll soon back down.
