Here we go again!
Will Spain ever be truly democratic? Why is it so hard to respect the wishes of a tiny nation of 30000 people?
Gibraltarians have the right to decide their own destiny, whether it be with Britain, Spain or as an independent country.
It's time for Spain to stop bullying its neighbour, and to drop its outdated territorial ambitions.

Hmmm, no, they don't. Gibraltarians live in a land that is not theirs. Some people in Britain still think they are an Empire, with queen and all. But that charade is wearing thin, and the world has had enough of its imperial delusions.
Sooner or later, Gibraltar will be Spanish again. The Moors stayed in Spain for 800 years, but they got the hell out of here in the end. The same will happen to Llanitos. ;)
