No more holidays in Spain?

Given Spain's obstruction of the people of Gibraltar I would be of the opinion that Spain is not a place for any British person to spend a holiday. I was fascinated to see the Spanish Director General of Foreign Affairs declaration that Gibraltar's action of placing concrete block to form a reef disrupted fishing in a special conservation area.

I say "Vote with your wallet" and stay away from Spain.

Spain still has colonies on Moroccan land namely Ceuta and  Melilla and Peñón de Vélez de la Gomera just across the Straits of Gibraltar. When they return the land to Morocco, maybe just maybe Spain can talk to Britain about Gibraltar.

Spain has constructed many artificial reefs to protect habitat against illegal fishing! The picture below is an extract from an International Maritime Organisation report.
