The Telegraph have suddenly realised the internet also exists in Spain.

Gbraltar has accused Spain of "hijacking" a Telegraph poll which asked the question “Is Gibraltar British or Spanish?”
The poll, which was originally published in 2013, has garnered close to two million votes – the vast majority of them voting in favour of Spain.
The Government of Gibraltar has raised concerns that the results are skewed, because Spaniards are encouraged to vote for the rock to be handed over to Madrid.
It argues the poll results are then used in the Spanish media to justify the claim that the majority of people believe Gibraltar is Spanish.
An analysis of who voted in the poll in 2013 showed that over five thousand of the votes in favour of Spain came from internet protocol addresses – or source computers - for Spain’s ministry of defence.
The poll also swung dramatically in Spain’s favour following a “digital armada” social media campaign on Facebook, Twitter and WhatssApp encouraging people to vote in favour of Spain.
Unsurprisingly, 98.89 per cent of people voting in Spain voted for Spain, in a bid to have the 1713 Treaty of Utrecht, which ceded the strategically valuable "Rock" to Britain, scrapped.
The Telegraph's poll will close at the end of May
For those interested, the scores on the doors are currently...
British - 155,939 (7.27%)
Spanish - 1,989,509 (92.73%)
That's your own fault for using a self-selecting poll, guys. Anyone can answer it and you don't get the results you want.
We are the angry mob, we read the papers every day.
We like who we like, we hate who we hate, but we're all so easily swayed.
Things can only get better.
