I could list for days some of the dirty tricks played by the Spanish Government to upset life in Gibraltar. There's been a campaign to get Gibraltar into UEFA for some time now, and like so many other aspects of life here, the Spanish have done their best to make life difficult. In this case, they have gone so far as to threaten a boycott of European Competitions by their Club and National Sides
It looks likely that Gibraltar will now be admitted, and will be playing qualifiers for the 2012 European Championships.
This image symbolises that although symbolically (and in the past, literally) Gibraltar has been fenced off, the flag still flies proud and defiant :O)
