UK Objects To Description Of Gibraltar As ‘British Colony’ In EU Law

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

This is the first three paragraphs.

The UK has objected to Gibraltar being described as a “colony” in European Union legislation allowing UK nationals to travel to the EU after Brexit.

The EU proposed allowing visa-free travel for Britons in November.

The Spanish government has since insisted a footnote be added describing Gibraltar as a “colony” and referring to “controversy” over its status.

The UK’s Ambassador to the EU objected.

Consequences Of A Successful No-Deal Brexit By The UK

As a Control Engineer, who voted Remain, I do wonder what would happen, if we left with No-Deal and after a year or so, it turned out to be without horrors, because people and companies had created new routes round the problems.

Doing this, is typical human behaviour and especially for the British!

We can all think of times in the past few years, where everybody has pulled together to solve the problems created by a disaster

Would a successful UK., prompt other countries to at least think of leaving the EU?

If it does, could we be seeing the start of the break-up of the EU?
