The Golden Key?

So, it is all coming down to Gibraltar.

Gibraltar, which is not, and has never been, part of the United Kingdom. If they do not have a vote in the Falkland Islands, then why do they have one in Gibraltar?

And that vote will be to Remain, on the traditional Gibraltarian scale of votes to preserve the status quo.

In Farageland, Gibraltar and the Falkland Islands are lost counties of England, or at least of Farageland. Watch the heads explode when Gibraltar's votes keep the United Kingdom in the European Union.

Or just fail to do so, and Gibraltar demands independence in order stay in the EU, membership of which now seems to be the point of its continuing allegiance to Britain.

It would draw the line at joining Spain in order to stay in the EU. But it is damn well staying in the EU by any other means. Without that, it no longer seems to have much interest in Britain.
