European Union angers United Kingdom by calling Gibraltar a 'colony of the British Crown'

This is why British tourists might get visa-free travel to Europe after Brexit

Gibraltar's Chief Minister Fabian Picardo accused Madrid of trying to "bully" the British Overseas Territory by demanding the contentious description in the draft document.

The original version requested by Spain was to be more strongly worded, given that nation's territorial desires over Gibraltar, but that was rejected by France who also have territories so described by the United Nations, reports The Guardian.

Mr Picardo said: "No one will be surprised to hear the Spanish government making provocative statements in respect of Gibraltar".

In particular, it stated: "Gibraltar is a colony of the British Crown".

Early spring predicted as groundhog does not see shadow
With the creation of the club came the rise of Punxsutawney Phil , the groundhog being elevated to global celebrity status. As silly as it all may sound, the ceremonial tradition goes back to 1886 , and has maintained an enduring cultural legacy.

The footnote, in a document about giving British travellers access to the EU's Schengen free movement area, said: "Gibraltar is a colony of the British crown".

Gibraltar officials said the use of the term colony did not help to create a "climate of trust" between the territory and Spain.

The results of the study also showed that 16 percent of United Kingdom firms had already activated relocation activities while 13 percent of them were considering moving at least part of their operations beyond the country's jurisdiciton over Brexit.

Proposals that would mean Britons do not require a visa for short visits to the European Union after Brexit, even in the event of no deal, are a step closer to being rubber-stamped.

There has also been concern in the United States about Chinese missile development, which was not restricted by the INF treaty. The withdrawal means that the United States can now deploy ground-based missile systems in Asia, in high proximity to China.

Recalling how European Union policy on Gibraltar had so far largely favoured Britain, which joined the bloc before Spain, a senior European Union official told Reuters recently: "Now the table has turned".

"We will always take the side of a member against a non-member".

Spain has already secured a right of veto over whether future Brexit arrangements can apply to Gibraltar.

The row highlighted strains over the territory on Spain's southern coast as Britain quits the Union and the remainder of the EU states swing the bloc's policies behind Spain, which is taking advantage of Brexit to ramp up its claim to The Rock. Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez held up an agreement on the current withdrawal treaty in November over the issue and said Spain would seek joint sovereignty after Britain leaves the EU.
