With Gibraltar seeing double digit growth for the last few years it makes perfect sense for La Linea to want to reach out an olive branch to its noisy neighbour.
Chief Minister Fabian Picardo for one, told the Olive Press, that Gibraltar could create 40,000 jobs for the unemployed in the area.
It could also ease border tension, which cost Gibraltar a reported £40 million in tourist income last year.
No doubt a La Linea-Gibraltar independant republic would face strong opposition from Spain but it could (maybe, just maybe) be the first step towards a blossoming Spain-Gibraltar relationship. Then again, that might be asking too much.
