junckerJEAN-CLAUDE Juncker has made remarks that could squash Spain’s claim to the Rock.

The European Commission President said that Gibraltar was ‘bound to leave the European Union together with the United Kingdom.’

He also said that Spain’s veto would only apply after Gibraltar had left the EU along with Britain.

It came after UKIP MEP William Dartmouth questioned the EU’s negotiating guidelines with reference to the people of Gibraltar, and accused the EU of ignoring their wishes.

Spain has repeatedly demanded joint sovereignty over the territory, which has sparked outrage from the UK and Gibraltar.
