GSD welcomes rejection of 'no deal' and hopes for Article 50 extension

The GSD says it welcomes the vote of the UK Parliament to rule out a no deal Brexit and hopes the vote to extend Article 50 is also supported. The party says the essential issues are unchanged for Gibraltar and believes Theresa May is desperately trying to ram through her version of the Withdrawal Agreement which it believes is bad for the UK and Gibraltar.

The GSD believes the most democratic course now is for there to be a people’s vote on whether to remain or accept this flawed deal.

The Party says it hopes the extension will be obtained on an unconditional basis and says Government needs to be alive to the threat that Spain may seek to unreasonably pursue conditioning such a request.
