Spanish Vessel

Spanish navy and survey vessels were given an ultimatum by U.S. and British Navy Chiefs this morning. They were told to observe International Maritime Law and allow the vessels to pass unhindered through the Straits of Gibraltar.

Chief of Navy Staff said, "Rescue operations for British Libyan Embassy Staff are imminent and we don't want to be policing people who, frankly are being deliberately disruptive.

Recent near misses with Spanish boats harassing legitimate British and NATO activities in the area have resulted in disoriented Spanish "Navy" crew being pulled from the water, given a sharp dressing down and made to comply with Gibraltar minimum British language communication requirements.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
