    Battle with Spain over Gibraltar shows many still live in the great shadow of British empire

    In the case of Gibraltar, that could be very heavy indeed.

    The future of Europe, it seems, has always been a compelling topic to discuss, amongst the most diverse circles of society. Shifts in political power, the surge in nationalism, EU-skepticism, Donald Trump’s unforeseen win of U.S. presidency – all contribute to a growing disillusionment with the future of a stable and prosperous Europe.
