    Spanish minister wants to charge brits 60 euro to holiday in Spain if we don't give Gibralter back to Spain!
    Another one opened his mouth before putting his Brain in gear.
    Must think that we only go to Spain for our holidays, what a d---head, gave up on Spain, to many places don't want you with your motorhome so now just make a beeline to Portugal.
    Regards

    Its worse than that! Spain disputes that the land Gibraltar airport is on is part of Gibraltar. It is outside the treaty area. Uk says it is theirs from long occupation.
    They also insisted in calling Gibraltar a colony. This is in the Eu documents allowing us to travel without a visa in the case of no deal. The Uk objected so if it is not sorted and we leave without a deal you will need a 60 euro visa to visit all the Eu on holiday, not just Spain. The visa only lasts 90 days too. It will get expensive.
    Living in the EU is a different problem

    So we charge all Europeans 60 to travel to UK or its territories (Colonies) and the government then uses that money to subsidise our travel to Europe. it's a lose lose situation for all concerned

    Good point..

    Yeah, but the free motorways are so good and empty, you can drive straight through, without bothering the locals.. Just 2 fuel stops.. Over th border, from miserable France, and before crossing into Portugal.
    It's not where you live... It's HOW you live..

    Nice to hear from you.
    You must remember that Spain is facing elections,soon.
    Politicians are trying to put convincing words up to counter the influence of the right wing, " populist ", parties .
    It's all bluster and windbaggery.
    ..I hope !

    I hope too

    Spain is still a dirt poor country with huge levels of unemployment and they desperately need British expat and tourist money. Nationalistic tub thumping will not help. Don't bite the hand that feeds.

    15 million Brits visited Spain last year. 16% of Spain's economy is reliant on tourism.
    308,805 British expats live in Spain generating 1.2 bn for the Spanish economy
    The UK imported 5.1bn more in goods from Spain than it exported to Spain
    It also imported 5.1bn more in services from Spain than it exported to Spain, some of which was due to tourism
    UK residents made 13 million visits to Spain, spending 6.5bn
    Spanish residents made 2.2 million visits to the UK, spending 1bn

    Why don't the British use the above? because we are weak and allow ourselves to be walked all over "Please Like Us, We will do as we are told"
    Just wandering around and loving it.
