Brexit: Gibraltar looks to EU-UK 'sausage war' talks to secure supermarket supplies

Gibraltar chief minister Fabian Picardo tells MPs that Brexit has created "administrative burdens" that are reducing the variety of goods that shops can stock. But he says he is "confident" a new post-Brexit treaty will "resolve current issues".

A solution to the EU-UK dispute over sausage exports to Northern Ireland could also secure the presence of British bangers in Gibraltar's supermarkets, the peninsula's chief minister has told MPs.

Fabian Picardo, speaking to the House of Commons' European scrutiny committee, said that Brexit had created "administrative burdens" that were reducing the variety of goods that Gibraltar's shops can stock.

The chief minister said he was "disappointed to see that some of our supermarkets are not able to offer the range they were able to offer before now", as he stressed the importance to the "character of Gibraltar" of its supermarkets being able to stock British products.

Seriously - why so much concern over an unclean meat that is forbidden to consume according to God's Law?


Deut. 14:8 And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it [is] unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcase.
