British Ambassador to Spain believes Gibraltar has a lot to give to the wider region

The British Ambassador to Spain, Simon Manley believes Gibraltar has a lot to give to the wider region. Mr Manley says the rhetoric that often comes from Spain does not change the reality of the situation.

He was in Gibraltar on Wednesday at the invitation of the Chamber of Commerce. He spoke at a dinner held at the Sunborn Yacht Hotel, and shared his unique insights into the current thinking in Spain on the future of Anglo-Spanish relations and also on the future relationship between Gibraltar and Spain.

GBC reporter Kevin Ruiz spoke to Mr Manley before he addressed Gibraltar's business leaders, and first asked him what the mood was in Spain regarding Brexit.
