A straggler from the Spanish Armada turned up outside the harbour gates in Gibraltar yesterday.
Immediately surrounded by Royal Navy vessels, the Spanish Captain delivered a wet parchment that he claimed was a declaration of surrender from King Phillip II of Spain to Queen Elizabeth.written with old fashioned words like those in the Treaty of Utrecht.
The remains of the humiliated Spanish Fleet among which incidentally there were no sailors, the ships being crewed in those days by members of the Aristocracy, had been hiding for hundreds of years in an Industrial Unit in Glasgow.
Unable to deliver the surrender parchment at the time due to the presence of big scary Glaswegians, the weary Spaniards gave themselves up to the Captain of a Royal Navy Destroyer in Gibraltar, waving a whitish flag and the parchment.
SPAIN IS ACTUALLY BRITISH COLONY WRITES PHILLIP
Sensationally, Spain has actually been a UK colony since the days of King Phillip II of Spain when the King unconditionally surrendered to The Queen of England again after the comedy "Kamikaze" style Spanish Armada attack on England.
The Spanish ships, for the first time sailing in a real sea, had mistakenly attacked the Isle of Man where their Noblemen were bored relentlessly and humanely slaughtered before being killed.
Spain was consequently given to England and Gibraltar was included as a kind of "buy one get one free" surrender deal and as a personal present from Phillip to HRH The Prince of Whales.
Asked why they had braved the hostile Scots and made a dash for FREEDOM, the ship's crew stated that they were absolutely fed up of awful football and THOSE BLOODY MIDGES.
