PostGibraltar, Corsica, Konigsberg (Anthony J Candil, USA, 04/07/14 4:38 am)
In response to John Heelan (7 April), I'd like to add that even if Spain recovers Gibraltar, France should return Corsica to Italy.
Regarding Spain, I think Mr Rajoy rather than thinking of asking the UK for Gibraltar, should ask Portugal to rejoin Spain. After all it was integrated once within the kingdom of Spain.
Or Cuba, which after all was Spanish until 1898.
Or Germany asking Putin for Königsberg (now Kaliningrad). That would be an interesting one to see.
What is done is done. We have to look to the future with hope and optimism. Let bygones be bygones.
JE comments: A powerful appeal for an end to irredentist claims. However, I'll repeat my point that enclaves are a unique case. Note that we've just seen the creation of a new one: Crimea.
