Gibilterra, una questione aperta
Un probabile pesce d'aprile?

EU anger as plans to relocate Faslane to Gibraltar are leaked

Citazione:Controversial plans to relocate Faslane naval base to Gibraltar to prevent Spanish incursions into local waters are being blocked by the EU.
It is understood that plans to move the base came about after the Scottish government requested the move and the Government of Gibraltar were more than willing to host the facilities from HMNB Clyde.
I was told this morning by local resident, A. Mann, that the move is also expected to halt Spanish incursions into the local waters:
“It’s fairly obvious, the more powerful a vessel that is based in Gibraltar, the fewer the incursions. I have been campaigning for the entire Royal Navy to be based in Gibraltar for years now so this is a positive step.” 
The issue, however, is an objection from the European Union who said in a statement:
“We do not accept that the relocation of a major military base to an area considered by Spain to be part of Spain is an appropriate action, especially committed by a state leaving the European Union.”
We are currently awaiting a response from the UK Government.
Faslane (HMNB Clyde) is the second largest single-site employer in Scotland, after the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow.
Faslane is one of the Royal Navy’s three main operating bases, alongside HMNB Devonport and HMNB Portsmouth. It is best known as the home of the UK’s four Vanguard-class nuclear-armed submarines which carry Trident II D-5 ballistic missiles.
Figures released by the Ministry of Defence detailed how many civilian jobs at Faslane and Coulport are directly dependent on Trident. Asked for the number of civilians working on the programme, the Ministry of Defence said it was 520.
“There are 520 civilian jobs at HM Naval Base Clyde, including Coulport and Faslane, that directly rely upon the Trident programme.”
It’s important to remember that the 520 jobs mentioned are civilians and strictly those working on Trident missiles...
