Govt says Gib entering final stages of Brexit negotiations before December deadline & speculation in Spanish media should be ignored

The Government says Gibraltar is entering the final stages of Brexit negotiations before the December deadline and says speculation arising from reports in Spanish media should be ignored.

The Chief Minister asks people to ignore the traditional claims for sovereignty made by Spain and to trust his Government of Gibraltar to deliver.

Fabian Picardo says his Government will give not an inch. It will never agree, he says, to anything that dilutes British sovereignty, jurisdiction or control over Gibraltar in the negotiations.

He says his team is tough and hawkish and “will not allow them to get anything past us”.
