Gibraltar To Remain British

The British and Spanish have announced the creation of a forum which will give Gibraltar an equal voice with Britain and Spain and is effectively a veto over any proposed changes to its constitutional status.

This is the fairest way to deal with the issue as it seemed like previous Spanish governments had been taking lessons from Sinn Fein in reconciliation.Basically whine and complain until you get your way.Unfortunately this method won't achieve anything constructive.

Furthermore the idea that Gibraltar could have potentially been granted Joint Sovereignty was ridiculous considering more people in Gibraltar want to be British than the people of Ireland's north.Why was it deemed acceptable to grant Joint Sovereignty to Gibraltar and not Ireland's north?Whatever the reason it seems Gibraltar's status is secure beyond doubt-it's British.
