More Brexiteers will rebel if EU rejects Chequers deal, says Gibraltar MEP Julie Girling

MEP for Gibraltar, and former member of the Conservative Party, Julie Girling, has predicted further disagreement within Tory ranks over the UK Prime Minister’s “Chequers” Brexit deal in future – especially if the deal is rejected by the EU. Ms Girling, who was stripped of the Conservative party whip last October, also told GBC she believes the Chequers deal, while aiming for a soft Brexit, does not help Gibraltar with respect to its services industry.
