Cameron runs into a brick wall.  The Guardian reports:
Spain's increased border controls have led to delays of several hours for those travelling to and from the British overseas territory.
The European commission had previously said that it planned to send a team of monitors to Gibraltar next month to check whether Spain was breaking EU rules on frontier controls, but on Friday a Downing Street spokesman said Cameron had asked Barroso to ensure it was sent "urgently".
Good luck with that.  The European Commission is on a care and maintenance basis during the month of August.  Even if it wished to send a team of monitors, the vast majority of its officials are on holiday.
