Gibraltar’s first minister Fabian Picardo has given evidence to the Commons European Scrutiny Committee on the Brexit deal where he insisted the overseas territory has a British future. Conservative MP David Jones asked: “Last week the chief minister of Gibraltar appeared before the European scrutiny committee and gave evidence about the continuing negotiations between Gibraltar and the European Union on their future relationship. During the course of this evidence, the chief minister made clear that Gibraltar’s future should be as he put it, ‘British, British, British’.
