Former Spanish Foreign Minister supports EU decision to not delist Gibraltar

Published by GBC News

Former Spanish Foreign Minister, and current member of the European People's Party, José Manuel Garcia-Margallo, posted a video expressing his support for the results of the vote.

Mr Margallo went on to refer to Gibraltar’s lack of natural resources, while having the third highest GDP per capita in the world which he attributes to its residents paying no VAT, no tax on petrol, alcohol or tobacco. He also highlighted the gaming sector on the Rock.

Minister for Trade, Nigel Feetham, addressed Mr Margallo directly in a video he posted this evening - describing assertions he made about Gibraltar as "untrue".
