Yes and collectively England,and Wales  votes outweigh the combined votes of Northern Ireland ,Scotland,and Gibraltar,together and that is how the kind of democracy that im familiar with is supposed to work,or am I wrong ?
Gibraltar has slipped under the radar for a lot of people in the Brexit debate.  It's the second border that the UK has with the EU.  And after the UK leaves the EU, the EU will be honour-bound to support Spain in its desire to get Gibraltar back from the British.  There's a lot of other 'little' things that complicate Brexit as explained in this article...

Gibraltar after Brexit: why Spain, not Ireland will decide the UK’s fate

Quote
...This is the question of Gibraltar, which encapsulates many of the concerns that will haunt UK-EU relations once Brexit has taken place. It is one of the rare examples of a land border between Britain and the EU, and a site of extensive cross-border movement. Every day, roughly 10,000 Spanish workers travel to Gibraltar (population 33,000) to work, mainly from the Spanish town of La Línea de la Concepción.

Gibraltar is also an example of how tightly interdependent Britain is with certain EU countries. Britain is one of Spain’s largest economic partners. Gibraltar is a hub for the finance and insurance industries, online gambling and gaming.

At the same time, Gibraltar offers a glimpse of the pressure points in future UK-EU relations. Since Gibraltar opted out of the EU customs union in 1972, it has set much lower taxes than its European neighbour. It has, for example, a corporate tax rate of 10%, compared to Spain’s 25%. As a result, Spain has long regarded Gibraltar as a de facto tax haven, resenting its parasitical existence on its southern border. Gibraltar is, nevertheless, part of the European single market.

Britain is enjoying a respite from BREXIT, not so Irish Taxi drivers who can't decide whether to work or not!
