More collateral damage from Brexit. 96 per cent of Gibraltarians voted Remain.

For Gibraltar the EU was an escape hatch. No longer | Ian Jack | The Guardian | 10/03/2018

It would be foolish to think the European Union alone brought these conflicts to a close. Nevertheless, for Gibraltar and Northern Ireland - for England itself, if England had the wit to recognise it - the EU offered an escape hatch from an imperial identity. Hard edges have been softened; sovereignty means less; historic anomalies such as Northern Ireland and Gibraltar have an easier time. Gibraltar, which had no future as a military base for a country losing its military strength, makes a better living out of selling car insurance.
