If they wanted independence they should have voted for it when they were asked asked , we can't have a situation where every time something happens that the SNP don't like they call for another vote.

I think it better we have a vote to see if we want Scotland to stay !

Yes Spain held them at Gunpoint with their Navy and said vote, last time i checked most of the people living in Gibraltar actually speaks spanish better than ENglsih, who would have guessed? A tiny tiny tiny territorial part of Spain voted to be In the EU, cause it was a better deal to them since they are connected to Spain than going with an Island that isnt even remotely close..

Now just using logic,

I have family who live in spain and work in Gib , you are wrong.
Gibraltarians don't want to be spanish , in the sovereignty referendum of 2002 they voted to stay a territory of Britain with a majority of 98%

The population Gibraltar, as British citizens, living in a British Overseas Territory can vote to be absorbed into Spain if they wish. That's their choice, however even with the UK leaving the EU it is questionable that they would want to join Spain.

The Spanish retain a claim on Gibraltar and can be antagonistic and annoying, but like good they hypocrites retain colonies in North Africa (Ceuta and Melilla). It is the potential unhelpfulness of Spain that the Gibraltarians cannot stand and want to avoid.

Why in the world would they want to leave the UK anyway? Voting to remain in the EU has almost nothing at all to do with intent to vote to leave the UK.

It isn't questionable at all , Gibraltarians consider themselves British and have no desire to be Spanish , in fact they don't like the Spanish.
Gibraltar is a British colony that wants to be a British colony , we have a duty of care.

Well the last word isnt said, isnt the people who actually decide in the end.. Cameron failed and should be sent to Siberia


I have to actually know ... Brussels treats the various countries of the EU like they don't matter even when they are as large and important as the UK when Scotland was a part of it which is why Brexit came up in the first place.

What makes you think that if you exit the UK and go knocking on Brussels' door as a much smaller and weaker entity, it will treat you any better than it treated you as a part of the UK?

... just assuage my curiosity please.
