The Voice of
Press Release

The VOGG will be sending a representative to monitor the talk this week of the former Governor Sir David Durie at Chatham House in London.

It will be interesting to see how he approaches the issues of Gibraltar now that he has retired and can speak freely.

Topics promised include: "The Treaty of Utrecht - a poisoned chalice.
The effect of the United Nations Charter. The indivisibility of the people
and the Rock. Why Spain needs to talk to Gibraltar."

It should be recalled that due to his complicity with the unpopular British Government policy on negotiating joint sovereignty, the VOGG made its presence felt at his official functions, often noisily. On this occasion, however, we will be taking the advice that we repeatedly gave him, and will be listening.

Also attending will be Kevin Kelway from the Golden Hinde association which maintains a strong interest in Gibraltar related matters in the UK.
