Spain’s dubious claim to Gibraltar

Associate Professor John Gava has been studying the recent dispute over Gibraltar.

He writes:

Gibraltar has once again hit the headlines with a dispute over fishing rights spiralling into a barely concealed demand by the Spanish government for the ‘return’ of Gibraltar. Spain’s latest claims for Gibraltar are clever politically, because they divert attention of Spaniards away from their terrible economic situation. But an analysis of Spain’s claim to Gibraltar shows that it is weak historically, inconsistent with generally accepted notions of selfdetermination and sets new records for hypocrisy.

John has written an article on this topic in the Gibraltar Chronicle.
