Brexit: Gibraltar in talks with Scotland to stay in EU

“Gibraltar is in talks with Scotland about a plan to keep parts of the UK in the EU, BBC Newsnight has learned. Fabian Picardo, the territory’s chief minister, told the BBC he was speaking to Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, about various options. One possibility under discussion is for Gibraltar and Scotland, which both voted to remain in the EU, to maintain the UK’s membership of the bloc. Ms Sturgeon confirmed to the BBC that talks are under way with Gibraltar. Northern Ireland could also potentially be included in the discussions. ‘I can imagine a situation where some parts of what is today the member state United Kingdom are stripped out and others remain,’ Mr Picardo told Newsnight.”
