    Remember this this the same Labour party that tried to screw-over Gibraltar...

    From wiki

    In 2001 Peter Hain moved briefly to the Department of Trade and Industry before returning to the Foreign Office as minister for Europe.
    He was vocal in advocating joint sovereignty of Gibraltar with Spain and was accused of deliberately misrepresenting the situation.
    The agreement was described by Michael Ancram in the UK Parliament, along with Gibraltar as a 'sell-out' which was overwhelmingly rejected in a referendum in November 2002.
    He remains one of the most unpopular politicians ever to visit Gibraltar.

    Peter Hain is not really British so you can't really expect him to have the commitment to the human rights of the Rocks citizens that a minister from Britain would have. He is also a fairly left of centre politician so he is probably easily influenced by the views of Sean Penn, Iran, North Korea, Cuba and Hamas in support of the Spanish position.
