Gibraltar Will Be Forever British, Vows Former Miss World

Gibraltar Will Be Forever British, Vows Former Miss World, by John Hinderaker.

Great Britain has controlled Gibraltar since 1713, but Spain wants it back. Seizing on Brexit as an excuse, the Spanish government has started exerting pressure on the Rock. For example, it is imposing Schwengen controls at the border, where 10,000 Spaniards commute every day. …

But Gibraltar has no intention of giving in. Gibraltar has a new mayor; the Gibraltar Chronicle reports:

New mayor Kaiane Lopez broke records yesterday as both Gibraltar’s youngest and the first Miss World to be a mayor. …

The Chronicle hails Ms. Lopez as “The most beautiful Mayor in the world.” That is a pretty safe bet:

Ms. Lopez is a patriotic Brit. Asked about Gibraltar’s future, she replied: “I am proud to be British. Gibraltar is British and always will be. Why would we ever want to change our flag?”
