Montegriffo ‘tempted’ to return to politics

Former GSD minister Peter Montegriffo has admitted he is tempted to return to politics against the backdrop of the Brexit challenge.

In the latest edition of the Gibraltar International Finance magazine, Mr Montegriffo said: “I have no plans in mind to return.”

However, he went on: “But in my heart there is something emotionally that doesn’t quite allow me to accept the finality of this conclusion.”

“If you were to ask me do I have any plans, the answer is definitely ‘no’, but if I were to be asked if I am tempted, the answer, definitely, very often is ‘yes’.”

“I haven’t previously articulated it in this way, because it might suggest I am more disposed to do so than before,” Mr Montegriffo told the publication.

“[But] I have got to a stage in life – and Gibraltar is facing some potentially unchartered waters with Brexit – where the thought of contributing becomes attractive again, because I think we are entering a phase in politics that is particularly complex.”

Mr Montegriffo added: “There is a lot to be done – it excites me – and it would be great to be more involved.”
