Delighted: Chief Minister

GIBRALTAR Chief Minister has described the election result as ‘very positive’.
Fabian Picardo expressed his delight at long-term Gibraltar supporters holding their seats in this month’s election, ensuring the Rock continues to have a voice in Westminster.
The result saw the Conservatives lose their majority, and Britain end up with a hung parliament.
He said: “I think this result puts parliament in the driving seat of the Brexit negotiations and Gibraltar is very well represented in that parliament.
“It’s a good result for Gibraltar as we go into Brexit in the sense that our views will matter in a parliament which will have a much greater influence over the Brexit negotiations than it might have if you had a very strong lead in terms of seats for one party or the other.”
This includes members of the Gibraltar all-party parliamentary group, which most controversially includes Democratic Unionist Party member Ian Paisley.
