The latest Brexit-related sticking point is Gibraltar, a peninsula of around just six square kilometers (2.3 square miles) on Spain's southern coast. It is home to some 30,000 people, about 200 wild apes, and has been under British control since 1704. Sovereignty over the peninsula was officially ceded by Spain to Britain by the Peace of Utrecht in 1713.
So, Spain would be well advised not to complain too loudly about British colonialism, especially as it, too, maintains two de facto colonies just across the Mediterranean Sea, Ceuta and Mellila,which Spain certainly isn't considering ceding control over either.
The real irony with these irons is that they have bases in Ceuta and Melilla; two Spanish enclaves situated across the Strait of Gibraltar, on the north coast of Africa and whose existence is disputed by Morocco.
Thats another reason why we have to leave, in 2015 when Cameron got his 4 concessions to "sweeten" the EU prior to the referendum, Greece tried to add on a 6 month "restructuring of it's loan" on the same agreement. Now, Spain wants to play a little "Brinksmanship" politics by leaving it till the last minute to put their oar in.
Get out before about 20 of the other sods start playing the game.
Could check the border on a morning and watch the sea of "Brits" driving into Spain on a daily basis to steal jobs from honest Spaniards, depriving their young ones the bread from their mouths......... I may have got that the wrong way round.
