Government responds to Marlene Hassan Nahon's statement, accusing her of 'repeatedly and dangerously' contradicting herself

The Government has responded to Marlene Hassan Nahon's statement, accusing her of "repeatedly and dangerously" contradicting herself.

In a statement, Number Six says it is disappointing that Ms Hassan Nahon is now not supporting its actions against those who've insulted and potentially defamed Gibraltar, having previously said in Parliament that she fully supported action against Vox.

The Government describes the Together Gibraltar leader as calling for constructive politics one day and hurling insults the next, as well as changing position on whether there should be a referendum on abortion.

It says this shows a lack of consistency and of intellectual rigour or cohesion, which is "dangerous in the extreme" in the context of government.
