Inflammatory comments like those by Michael Howard will not help Britain get what it needs from Brexit negotiations – Thornberry

Emily Thornberry MP,
Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, remarking on former Tory Leader Michael
Howard’s comments, said:

“Inflammatory comments
like those by Michael Howard will not help Britain get what it needs from these
difficult Brexit negotiations. Sadly it’s typical of the botched Tory approach
which threatens a bad deal for Britain. 

“Labour is clear that the
sovereignty of Gibraltar must be protected and that the interests of British
citizens in Gibraltar are safeguarded.”
