This chapter focuses on events in the wake of Felipe González's second election victory. In his first public comments on Gibraltar since starting his second term in an interview for BBC Radio on 10 October, González described the effect of Gibraltar on Anglo–Spanish relations as ‘a stone in Spain's shoe’ and felt that there was a pressing need to reach an agreement which would lead to an eventual resolution of the problem. However, he annoyed Gibraltarians with the statement that they have ‘no right to self–determination’. The chapter also describes preparations for the talks between the Spanish and British foreign ministers scheduled in January 1987.

Keywords:   BBC Radio, Felipe González, self–determination, foreign ministers
