dont think so if this story is right. If this does happen, then people will be wincing at the poor bureaucrat. But this quote was great:
"With the slip of a Whitehall pen, the UK government has opened the way for the Spanish to lay claim to Gibraltar's waters," he said. "It's lucky that British ministers weren't sent to fight the Spanish Armada. They'd have rocked up in Hull when the fleet was in the Channel."
