 “There is genuine concern among the people of Gibraltar regarding the border between Gibraltar and Spain; stresses, therefore, that these withdrawal negotiations must not be used as a mandate to question the sovereignty of Gibraltar and introduce any obstacles along the border between Gibraltar and Spain; points out furthermore that in the 2002 referendum 98.97% of voters in Gibraltar voted against shared sovereignty with Spain.”

The amendment was rejected by 496 to 139 votes.

Nigel Farage slammed Eurocrats as “vindictive and nasty” for refusing to take Gibraltar off the table as a bargaining chip. This is disgraceful behaviour by the EU, thank god in two years we’ll be out of it!
