When you read the article the only dissenting voice from within the Conservative Party is Andrew Rosindell MP. He is always rather outspoken and comes up with some interesting ideas (to say the least!)

I also fail to understand why Gibraltar is still an issue. The results of the referendums couldn't be more clear.

It's not like nobody has asked the people of Gibraltar what they want.

It's been put to a vote several times, and the residents don't want Spanish sovereignty, or even shared sovereignty!


So why keep on about it?

Well, this is about territory - always a very delicate issue between nations!

I wouldn't say so, and I'm not much older myself. I have't seen a pic of Juan C lately but I vaguly remember HIM as middle aged, so I suppose I hadn't realised that Felipe is no spring chicken.

He's close to 50, well into middle aged territory.

No the Lovers Knot tiara. And the necklace seems to be the ruby necklace the Queen got as a Wedding gift from her parents and was from Mrs. Greville.

No, she's wearing Queen Mary's Lovers Knot Tiara. The name of it is not Cambridge Lovers Knot. Just for correction purposes.

so I'm not sure I should ask this question here...I might get stoned to death..but here it goes: Does anyone know if Queen Letizia is now fluent in English? I know it was a big debate a long time ago. So I'm just wondering if she ever learned or if anyone has heard her speak in English over the year????? (Please don't hurt me!!) (I looked before I asked!) (I really did)
