Theresa May would go to war to defend British sovereignty over Gibraltar.
Spain responded that when the UK leaves the European Union, Spanish government would reconsider the incorporation of Scotland back into EU.
Conclusion: The United Kingdom would be willing to sacrifice innocents lives to defend Gibraltar – the last British colony in Europe – famous Tax Haven and money laundering paradise.
On the other hand, Spain denies the possibility of independence referendum in Catalonia. In a show of hypocrisy, Spain supports the independence of Scotland.
This case is just an example of hypocrisy in the political relations between two NATO members England and Spain.
