Gibraltar, Brexit and the EU

Gibraltar - 28th March 2017 - As you enter Gibraltar from Spain you are met by a small shopping mall where two different brands work side by side. Eroski and the very British known brand of Waitrose work side by side. The road that leads from the city centre to the border with Spain. In the background three flags are flying, the Gibraltar flag, the Britis flag and the EU's flag. The border with Spain is used by cross border familes and workers on a daily basis. They include Gibraltraians living in Spain, school children attending schools in Gibraltar and both Gibraltarian and foreign workers living in Spain. The British overseas territory of Gibraltar braces itself for the 29th March 2017 when the British Prime Minister evokes Article 50 signalling the start of British exit from the European Union.
