Are Britan’s old imperialist intentions really over in the year 2013?  big surprise  The more things change, the more they stay the same, I guess.

“Tensions over Gibraltar - the rocky outpost at the mouth of the Mediterranean to which Spain lays claim - flared up this month after Spain complained that an artificial reef being built by Gibraltar would block its fishing vessels.”

England will send war ships to the rock of Gibraltar, their Prime Minister will call for action against Al-Assad’s Syria tyranny, but the parliament vote no on the Syria military action.

So do the England’s parliament value the rock of Gibraltar over Syria people?  I do doubt that, but where are they values?
