Cameron 'seriously concerned' by Gibraltar/Spain tensions

UK PM David Cameron is "seriously concerned" by reports that Spain is considering introducing fees at the border with Gibraltar and closing its airspace to planes using the British overseas territory's airport, his spokesman said on Monday.

"We remain seriously concerned by events at the Spain/Gibraltar border," the spokesman told reporters. "We are seeking an explanation from them (the Spanish government) regarding the reports that they might target Gibraltar with further measures."

This seems to be incredibly short-sighted of Sr Rajoy. If his popularity at home has slipped so much that he need to find his own answer to "Maggie Thatcher's Falklands" in order to regain a little ground, then he has obviously not bargained on the fact that so much of the Spanish economy is reliant on the British pound. And he would be alienating Spain from the rest of the EU.
