We are reminded that in September 1967, at a time of rising hostil- ity from Franco’s Spain, a brave Gibraltar voted overwhelmingly to remain British. Other than Britain, this was a time of little international support. A proud people knew that they had made their deci- sion in the full knowledge that Spain’s punishment would be swift and harsh.
