DUE to the murder of Jo Cox, it was decided that all Brexit campaigning would be cancelled until Sunday June 19, which meant that the historic visit of David Cameron to Gibraltar proceeded without the promised Brexit rally, much to the disappointment of the local electorate, although the reason was fully understood.
In a gesture of solidarity with the people of Gibraltar, the Prime Minister recorded a special message, which was broadcast on GBC on the evening of June 21, in which he told Gibraltarians that in his opinion, that they would be stronger, safer and better off if Britain remains within the European Union.
Whilst praising the people of Gibraltar for all that they have achieved, he also gave an undertaking that his government would support the Territory against any new political aggression from neighbour Spain.
In the meantime, there was a demonstration outside the British Embassy in Madrid by about 25 members of the Vox party, demanding the release of Minguez Martinez, who was arrested as part of the team that unfurled the Spanish flag on the Rock.
