British Prime Minister Theresa May Sunday insisted that she would "never" allow Gibraltar to slip from British control against the wishes of Gibraltarians as the issue took center-stage in early Brexit wranglings.The European Union has said that Spain would have to agree to extend any trade deal between the bloc and Britain to also cover the 6.7-square-kilometre (2.6-square-mile) British overseas territory on the southern tip of Spain.This means that Madrid could potentially block Gibraltar's access to any trade deal, and politicians in "the Rock" fear that Madrid will use the veto to seek sovereignty over the peninsula.Gibraltarians want to stay British, as demonstrated in 2002 when they rejected a referendum on shared sovereignty with Spain.
