    So why is evidence NOT required in this process ? Is this a authentic piece of ‘news ‘ ? What an insult to the people of Gibraltar – does this mean the mealy mouthed UK political objects masquerading as politicians, in Government, have already decided on a plan for Gibraltar.? Evidence is needed – Gibraltar was ceded ‘in perpetuity’ under the Peace of Paris of 1782, when Briitish Empire ceded Menorca and Florida to Spain in exchange on the same basis. Read the evidence !
