Clause 22 of the EU’s draft negotiating guidelines, the incursion by a Spanish warship, the amended Schengen regulations, a possible air incursion – and even our new Mayor – have all kept Gibraltar high up in the news agenda.
The final version of the European Council negotiating guidelines have been confirmed in Brussels today.
Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo, addressed the Propeller Club of Algeciras at a private lunch on Tuesday. He was a special guest and spoke on the latest developments regarding Brexit and its implications for Gibraltar and the Campo Area.
