Subject: BS: British Rule.The vote
Non Uk folks may not have heard of this.
300 years ago Gibralta was made by force of arms to become a British colony. The catholic population were subjugated to the crown. Remind you of anywhere else?
Recently, some moves have been made to partially restore sovereignty to Spain. The Gibraltarians, unhappy with the progress, organised a referendum.
The result was, out of a 90% turn out, 99% voted to remain under sole British rule.
See. Some people like us.
