UK and Morocco do not TOUCH Spain - therefore they are NOT bordering countries.
Oct 4th, 2009 at 14:14 GMT
UK border is to Gibraltar. The Morocco one for the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla, which lies on the opposite shore of the Mediterranean.

Thank you cuendillar. It is true, most people overlook it, but the UK and Morocco do share borders (I have gone through them) with Spain

Hello, your quiz is really good. :-)
Oct 4th, 2009 at 18:21 GMT
thanks, I ask Spaniyards all the time since I've been living here and I don't think that even 1 has gotten them all. A couple fellow US Americans have. Goes to show, you learn what you're interested in
Oct 7th, 2009 at 00:17 GMT
Woot, I got them all :)

Spain definitely does border UK and Morocco for the reasons outlined above.
Oct 9th, 2009 at 19:11 GMT
Good quiz, almost got me with UK. Seems that some people need to learn some European geography.

Going by common Sporcle convention, Spain doesn't border the UK. Gibraltar is a British territory but not part of the UK. I'm pretty sure in other quizzes unincorporated territories aren't counted. Still caught me out though. I always thought Gibraltar was an island. Learn something new every day.

@dodsface, surprisingly every Spaniyard I've asked (and I have lived in Spain almost 2 years) has missed at least one country here. Gibraltar is actually a fully incorporated part of the UK, at least according to the locals I talked to last month when I was in Gibraltar, I could be wrong, but we still have a boarder.
Oct 27th, 2009 at 20:34 GMT
I don't think Gibraltar is a fully incorporated part of the UK. Its official status is a "British Overseas Territory" same as places like Bermuda, Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, etc. Although I guess it does have some sort of special status because it is part of the EU unlike other BOTs.

@Psyk, I´ve done some reasearch and I believe you are correct, however I am leaving it on here, as there is a boarder crossing and you must pass through customs, something Spain doesn´t have with the other countries except for Morocco
Jan 21st, 2010 at 20:18 GMT
I completely agree Morocco should be here, Ceuta and Melilla are fully fledged parts of Spain. The UK should not be, as Gibraltar is an oversea dependency, not an integral part of the country. Maybe keep it as a bonus answer.
Apr 23rd, 2010 at 12:15 GMT
Gibraltar's status is tricky. It's more integrated than say, Pitcairn island. I believe for administrative purposes its part of south-west England, though don't quote me on that. I think the only reason that its not officially officially part of the UK is that the UK doesn't want to annoy Spain too much. Gibraltan's (that the denonym) consider it part of the UK at least.
Jun 9th, 2010 at 15:13 GMT
If the UK didn´t want to annoy Spain they would stop the UK navy in Gibraltar from using targets that match the Spanish flag, so I don´t think that´s the issue, but I like your thought!
Mar 14th, 2011 at 18:43 GMT
Stupid me! Didn't think of Gibraltar. I would personally keep Gibraltar. I don't get all the legal technicality, but I met few Gibraltans who definitely considered themselves as being British (especially as opposed to Spanish: I witnessed some "funny"feuds between Gibraltans and Spanish people).
Feb 5th, 2013 at 09:59 GMT
@FishyInSpain: I think the main reason we "Spanyards" don't usually remember that one is... because we really don't like to think much about it!! Anyway, if people from Gibraltar want to be uk citizens, even with that andalusian accent, I, personally, wouldn't deny them... ;)
