I don't read the situation that way at all. The EU have given the lion's share of negotiation powers on this one issue to Spain, purely because they share a border and are most affected by the change. I totally get the reasoning behind that.

What I take exception to is a dill brain like Michael Howard making his ill judged comparisons between Thatcher and the Falklands, and May and Gibraltar. Crass, sexist, sabre rattling dullard stirring the pot to get his face in the papers again.
The EU explanation was that in a border dispute between member states they do not take sides.

For border disputes between member states and non EU states they support their members.

Sounds fair and reasonable?
