GSD describes Gibraltar Brexit Protocol as a bad deal and a lost opportunity

The GSD has described the Gibraltar Brexit Protocol as a "bad deal and a lost opportunity".

In a party political broadcast on GBC, Keith Azopardi said it's unsurprising that some Spanish politicians have suggested the Gibraltar agreement could survive a no-deal scenario.

The GSD leader said this was because it favours Spain more than it does Gibraltar.

In his New Year message, Mr Azopardi said if this deal is the best the Government can do, it should move over to allow someone else to negotiate the future relationship with the EU. The GSD leader also said at a time of such serious challenges for Gibraltar, it's important that it be led on a safe, secure and careful path.
