    Yes, I am shaking.

    The Navy is commanded by the Mayor of London, did you read what he have
    written in The Telegraph?. It is in gatufo´s blog.

    My door it is open, heehheeh

    My best dear Dan.


  3. emiliano says:


    Is it British the monkey?, Also speak English?
    I envy the monkey.
    I exchange for him being provided and I would have their same rights.

    So yeah, we all want to be British or at least I let you conquer us and give us the same treatment as Gibraltarians.

    What the hell, maybe British law is better than the Spanish and the standard of living of the peninsula would rise to be a tax haven, dealing in all kinds of pirates, smugglers snuff, fraudsters, etc. .. etc..

    We would live so good, being the sink in Europe. fiscal paradise, how good it sounds, huge tax to a level where his could live out of nowhere. Because if on a desolate rock on the seashore Have Been Able to live a colony of monkeys, and men, from the early eighteenth century did not want to think acerca how we could live here on the peninsula as well as dedicating ourselves To have engaged the same as in the rock during all these years.

    Maybe we are lucky and brithish They did conquer us like around 1711 and signed a treaty, or whatever llamese Utrecht is called.
    I was acerca to.

    They are sending Considering Their fleet That Can it is possible to drop such luck to us.
    Warships say they come to the rock, its mission?. It seems They will do maneuvers.
    Man this catches them closer to the Malvinas Islands and certainly as far as I’m concerned I could be British from now.

    After my recent trip to London and seeing how well many live there, With Those big cars and so forth ….

    Also Those amazing houses with gardens, separate doors in the basement for the servants, And Those stores as luxurious. relieved
    to have eaten from the great city That is London, and the wonderful Inglés countryside I would like to be a British citizen or as people the rock are.
    Also the monkeys, sorry I have forgotten them.

    I do not care conquer us and make us like British Citizens Those in the rock for Hundreds of years.
    Problems with the Inglés would not have any, I speak English quite well, so go ahead With The army.
    For me?, The navy it is not necessary let me be British tomorrow, please.

    What I have said, I aim to be conquered just now.
    Who knows all It could be possible.

    (sorry friends of the Blog, I wrote it in Spanish and it is difficult to translate
    the same reasons to English)
    It is better to think in English and write directly in English language, but lot of Spaniards could not
    understand it.

    Yes Dan, I don´t care…..shaking I am, the same as majority of Spaniards.
    We have been always in War with England, so it is History.


  4. emiliano says:

    The Spanish must take their hands off Gibraltar’s throat.
    Madrid is using our Rock to divert attention from its own economic woes, writes Boris Johnson.
    (and Mr. Boris Johnson writes a long long note in first page of The Telegraph)
    you may see it if you look for the news paper of yesterday.
    This is gatufo´s replay to him in his blog:

    Every one has opinions now about everything, and even the Mayor of London has his own about Gibraltar and Malvinas Islands. He said he has been in Gibraltar, nothing about Malvinas (he wrote Fackland Islands but gatufo wrote Malvinas), and first time he went it was a surprise to see Gibraltar was quite different from the rest of Spain.

    Sure it is true, and also talk about rights of 38.000 people from Gibraltar. It is funny that in Spain there are more of 400.000 British persons that live as residents in Spain, not in Gibraltar, may be just because they find another different air here that in Great Britain, and of course that in Gibraltar.

    Second European´s people who are living in Spain are British, in fact first of all are from Romania and second are from Maroc.

    People from Romania and Maroc came here to work, looking a better place to work and live, but most Bristish came here to enjoy a good life after working for years in their country.
    They don´t go to Gibraltar just to find the same things that like so much to the Mayor of London, all of them stay on Spanish lands because they like just
    “the difference” among the two countries.

    Why going to Spain, Gibraltar, to find the same?. No way my dear Mayor Borish Johmson, they came here to find just typical Spanish style, that seems you don´t like very much.

    Well every one has their own opinión, and yours are in “The Telegraph” of today, but jus only a remark, MY HANDS ARE NOT ROUND THE TROUGH OF
    ANY BODY MY DEAR FRIEND as it seem you said in your note.

    My hands are doing other nicer things at home like writing this blog, helping my wife, or feeding my cat. More or less like the hands of every spanish body here, in Spain.
    Where are yours to think such a thing of us?

    Here it is on the Telegraph the note of Mr. Borish Johmson, London´s Mayor.
    By the way, London it is a very nice friendly city. Congratulations to all London´s citizens and to you.

    (here it is Mr.Johnson note published)

    Gatufo finished with:

    Nice of reading a good English Note in an English Newspaper.
    Thank you

    As every one of you can see Gatufo is a Smart Cat that could
    reply to the Mayor of London City.
    Dan, you also could see as much as I am shaking, more or less
    the same as Mr. Rajoy, the Spanish President. jua, jua, jua……

    el gatufo
