Last month, Pons addressed Chief Minister Fabian Picardo during his appearance in front of the European Parliament.

Pons said: “Gibraltar should choose between going with London, or staying in the EU with Spain.

“Brexit is Brexit. If the United Kingdom leaves the EU, all the territories that compose it go and the next day Gibraltar will become a colony administered by a third country.”
