What a cachonfinger!

From The Telegraph comes the story 'Outrage as Spain and EU accused of using Brexit to take back Gibraltar, as MPs say Britain will "not be bullied" '.
'Outrage'? Didn't those poor idiots see this coming?
But look on the bright side. There was always the issue of what European language would become the official language of the EU, following the humiliating departure of the UK. It would be silly if it were English, a language officially spoken by no one. But wait, my sorrowful and monolingual friends. Gibraltar Español! So, the future official language of the EU need not change from what it is today since there'll be a bit (a jolly small bit) of the EU wot speaks English. 
Or rather, 'Gibraltarian'!
