Chief Minister says his Government will never agree to the EU negotiating mandate which he says would bring 'joint poverty' as opposed to joint prosperity

The Chief Minister has described the EU's Treaty negotiating mandate as "still born."

Fabian Picardo told GBC he wanted a treaty that would rocket-boost business and that what the EU had put on the table did the exact opposite.

He told Christine Vasquez his Government would never agree to it as it advocated "joint poverty" as opposed to joint prosperity.
