This concluding chapter summarizes the main themes covered in the preceding chapters. It addresses the following question: how serious has Britain been in the negotiations since the signing of the Lisbon Agreement in 1980 about securing a lasting solution to the question of the sovereignty of Gibraltar? It concludes that in the short–term, it appears unlikely that Spain will be able to remove the stone of Gibraltar from its shoe, and it will continue to chafe whenever the Spanish Government has occasion to notice it. For its part, the British Government seems to be in no hurry to assist with its removal.
