Spain like their vernacular cousins in Argentina are just making noise over foreign territories as it's a nice way to deflect from the fact that their country is going to shit. Someone should have a conversation with them over Ceuta and Melilla.
I don't read the situation that way at all. The EU have given the lion's share of negotiation powers on this one issue to Spain, purely because they share a border and are most affected by the change. I totally get the reasoning behind that.

What I take exception to is a dill brain like Michael Howard making his ill judged comparisons between Thatcher and the Falklands, and May and Gibraltar. Crass, sexist, sabre rattling dullard stirring the pot to get his face in the papers again.
