Gibraltarians involved in row with Spaniards on Easyjet flight

Easyjet aircraft in Gibraltar

A FLIGHT from Gibraltar to London Gatwick on April 4 was proceeding quite comfortably until a short time before it was due to land when, according to The Sun – which is encouraging readers to support Gibraltar – a row broke out.

Speaking to an anonymous witness, it is claimed that a Gibraltarian coupled started to shout at a group of Spaniards sitting behind them, accusing them of provocation and staff on board were so disturbed about the potential of violence that they alerted the control tower to the problem.

When the easyJet flight landed, passengers were asked to remain in their seats and armed police officers boarded the aircraft and removed two passengers from the plane.

According to the Sussex Police “Officers boarded when the plane landed at Gatwick at 1.30pm. Two people were taken from the flight and given words of advice about their behaviour.”

      “Why don’t the GIBRALTERIANS have respect for Spain”.

      Why should they? The Spanish don’t deserve any respect , the Spanish don’t have any respect for anybody else but themselves…selfish to the core.

      Maybe, just maybe, it is because the Spanish have no respect for the sovereignty of Gibraltar and the people of Gibraltar. Works both ways you know.

      Wow really??? Typically British Empire attitude from you lot… would be nice if the Brits showed respect towards other nations… you think you can just invade and take over where ever you want? Between you and the Yanks you seem to think you’re special? Well, you’re not. A nation of fat, lazy slobs with entitlement issues.
      I say give Gibraltar back to Spain, you have no business being there in the first place. Stick to your miserable island, and good riddance, can’t wait to have you out of the EU. The UK was a failing island before it joined the EU and it will be again after.
