In a report featured on GBC Newswatch tonight they reported that "In a wide ranging interview with GBC that will be broadcast next week Sir James expands on his reasons for cutting short his tenure and denies his decision will diminish the Governor's standing. He expresses concern that recent Spanish incursions have become more aggressive, and says what's more worrying still is the possibility that Ministers in Madrid may not have full control of their own law enforcement agencies."
