Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
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.
