So we have the splash, on the Gibraltar issue currently...
This was accompanied by the text: “The Sun today demands Spain and the EU take their hands off Our Rock.”
So the message from the tabloid is loud and proud: “UP YOURS SENORS.”
What’s that offer in the top right hand corner?
The offer covers trips to “France, Italy, Holland, Croatia, Austria...and Spain!”
The irony did not escape some...

On Monday, Downing Street confirmed it would not be sending a military taskforce to Gibraltar amid suggestions of war with Spain over the British territory.
The Prime Minster’s official spokesman repeatedly insisted the UK was “steadfast” in its support for the peninsula, after the EU revealed last week Spain could exclude Gibraltar from any post-Brexit trade deal.
Former Tory leader Lord Howard ratcheted up tensions with Spain on Sunday when he compared the trade dispute to Argentina’s invasion of the Falkland Islands in 1982.
The peer insisted Theresa May would “show the same resolve” to Gibraltar as Margaret Thatcher gave to the Falklands, prompting suggestions that the UK military could be deployed against Spain.
