Mar 14 - Picardo: We Must Plan For Every Eventuality In This “Time Of Flux”

The Chief Minister has reacted to the latest Brexit votes in the House of Commons:

"This is a time of flux, the like of which is unknown to modern democracy.

“The British Government is being repeatedly defeated.

“Tentative steps are being taken toward no-deal being entirely off the table but we are not safely there yet, until the Withdrawal Act is amended.

“Tomorrow will again be an important date.

“For now, leaving the EU on the basis of the Withdrawal Agreement and leaving without a deal at all are still options that could emerge.

“Revocation of the Article 50 notification is, nonetheless, also now as likely a possibility.

“That - leading to the United Kingdom and Gibraltar remaining within the European Union -  would undoubtedly be the best outcome for Gibraltar.

“But we cannot let down our guard.  We must continue in these times of unprecedented flux, to plan for every eventuality even now.”
