UK General Election has shown up Gibraltar's democratic deficit, says Representation for Gibraltar in Westminster group

The Representation for Gibraltar in Westminster claims the last UK General Election has shown up Gibraltar's democratic deficit.

It states the election was basically about Brexit, with Gibraltar not having had a say in an election which concerns us completely.

The movement says it is aware that Gibraltar's participation would have made little difference, but states the important thing is that that we do not have a voice in an institution that is taking decisions that affects the Rock directly.

The group reiterates its view that representation for Gibraltar in Westminster is the safe and democratic way forward for the Gibraltarians.
