Last quote by Jack Straw

It's in the interests of Gibraltarians for there to be some kind of deal done with the Spanish in the new circumstances, circumstances which the Gibraltarians didn't want, because they voted in very substantial numbers to stay within the European Union. For the Spanish, Gibraltar is an affront to their sense of national identity and their sense of sovereignty. It's a bit like having a part of Dover being owned by Spain. The Spanish understood the strength of opinion in Gibraltar and they've held back ever since from trying to impose a further solution on the Gibraltarians.feedback

Apr 03 2017 Gibraltar
Jack Straw has been quoted 10 times. The one recent article where Jack Straw has been quoted is Spain tells UK not to lose its cool over Gibraltar in Brexit talks. Most recently, Jack Straw was quoted as having said, “I'm sorry, this is 2017-18, it's not 1851. The idea of Spain going to war against Britain over Gibraltar is frankly absurd, and reeks of 19th-century jingoism. It's not going to happen. Evan Gen Franco, the Spanish dictator, never sought to claim the Rock by military means. One needs to be extremely careful about throwing out threats of military action where there's no such possibility of that happening by the Spanish.”.
