      In an endeavour to keep busy and move away from the political scene I decided to investigate certain unpalatable events of yesteryears.
      Way back in the 1930’s a local journalist was expelled from Gibraltar for writing a book in which members of our elite were criticised and then in the 1940’s a member of the up and coming Trade Union movement was deported from these shores.
      How things have changed, we now have in our midst an individual who openly expresses pro-Spanish sentiments and is still here, he must be either fortunate of living in a democracy or else has a good’ padrino’, whichever way you care to view this current situation, it nevertheless begs the question what has changed in our society?
      Yours faithfully,
