@eu_commission so 7/8 hour queues are ok then? Cheers. If I had any faith in you before, I certainly don't now. #Gibraltar

The @eu_commission and @barrosoeu should be ashamed of themselves. I am praying Gibraltar leave the EU with the UK soon. #disgusted

What a farce! You told Spain you were coming, of course you do not find any issues. @eu_commission an absolute joke!

Spain did not break EU law

The EU Commission has said it has found no evidence that checks by Spanish authorities at the Gibraltar border broke European law.
