Daily Politics soapbox: 'Why Gibraltar should stay British'

Gibraltar's chief minister Fabian Picardo has said the overseas territory should remain British, following Guardian journalist Richard Norton-Taylor's call for Britain to give up sovereignty.

In his Soapbox film for the Daily Politics, Mr Picardo said Gibraltar has "long been an important British military asset", used by the allies to "turn the tide" against the Nazis during World War Two.

It is also "entirely self sufficient", and enjoys an "avant-garde" online gaming industry that is "the envy of the rest of the EU", he said.
