For too long now Spain has been allowed to equate the decolonisation of Gibraltar with her anachronistic claim to our Sovereignty, and, worse still, to add distortion to the confusion of principles, by maintaining that because there is a sovereignty claim by her, the self determination rights of a colonial people are cancelled and overridden.
