Do what I say or I’ll shoot myself

From today’s Open Europe news summary:

Spain warns of consequences for Gibraltar if Britain votes for Brexit

The Times reports that Spain may end its agreements with Gibraltar, and could even close the border if Britain votes to leave the EU. A Spanish official told the paper that “We do not see Britain leaving the European Union as an opportunity but you have to understand that if Brexit happened it would change our obligations to Gibraltar… No longer would we have to respect the free movement of capital and goods which Brussels demands. We could even close the border if wanted to.”

This “Spanish official” should ask all the Spaniards who work in Gibraltar if they would support closing the border. No wonder Catalonia wants its independence.
