The people of Gibraltar have nothing against referendums on rejoining Spain - they have already had at least two of them since the 1960's so another one wouldn't be strange or unprecedented in any way.

But while the earlier ones resulted in massive support for staying with the UK, there is no way of knowing if that will hold in the future.

As I said before, the people of Gibraltar voted as massively to remain in the EU in that referendum - and that wish was just ignored by Britain.

A future referendum on rejoining Spain - and thereby the EU - might therefore end quite differently then the previous ones, where the question of EU membership was not on the ballot.
