This thesis is an argumentative analysis which utilizes the Toulmin model. The analysis is initially of a descriptive nature but progresses and transforms its intentions into a prescriptive and evidential form in a continuum. The materials which are processed are three opinion-forming articles published in august in English language newspapers. The analysis is performed by categorizing the elements of the argumentations and elevating their important aspects in order to make able the answering of the proposed questions which queries how the recent debate concerning Gibraltar is portrayed in the chosen newspapers and the relation this has with the status of Gibraltar as a British colony and whether this can affect a future change of said status. After separately analyzing the different components according to the theory of decolonization, the conclusion is reached which signifies the British debate concerning Gibraltar as a heterogeneous spectacle with the greatest difference lying in the recipient of the projected blame. The status of Gibraltar as a colony appears stern but its belonging to Britain appears less so. The possibility for co-sovereignty is a possibility. This however is unlikely to mean any noticeable change in the lives of Gibraltarians (Less)
