The GSD has said it is united with the Gibraltar Government over the contents of the King of Spain’s speech to the UK Parliament.
In a statement the GSD Opposition expressed dismay after King Felipe VI said the "two governments" of his country and Britain will find a solution on the Rock's future that is "acceptable to all involved" in his address to both Houses of Parliament.
The Leader of the Opposition Roy Clinton said: “It was unfortunate that a modern Spanish monarch should address the oldest of Parliament’s in such an anachronistic way in the 21st Century.”
“Gibraltar is not a bilateral issue to be resolved between two Governments without reference to the Government or people of Gibraltar.”
“On this both the Government and Opposition are united.”
