Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The worst part being that the Gibraltar PM himself is all for it, but the UK is unlikely to accept this.

Gibraltar Wants to Join Schengen Post-Brexit - UK Says No

The Chief of Gibraltar, the 6.2 km2 enclave at the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula, Fabian Picardo, wants to join the Schengen Area in a post-Brexit Europe. However, the UK is not ready to let something like that happen.

In an interview last Friday, Picardo said that it would be positive for Gibraltar to join the Schengen Area, as nearly 14,000 workers cross the border every day to go to work in Gibraltar where full employment prevails.

The vast majority of these workers are Spanish or nationals of other countries residing in Spain, including 2,500 Britons.

"Does it make sense to the EU that 2.5 square miles at the southern tip of the peninsula is not accessible to European citizens? I do not believe so," Picardo said throughout the interview.
