Gibraltar's Chief Minister Makes Shock Revelation

by Amanda Banks, Tax-News.com, London

17 June 2002


Gibraltar Chief Minister, Peter Caruana's appetite for politics has faded - partly as the result of a Foreign and Commonwealth Office 'dirty tricks campaign' with regard to the ongoing sovereignty debate - according to a report from the Panorama news service on Friday.

Quoting from a recent interview in 'The Business' magazine, Panorama revealed that although Mr Caruana is not planning to throw in the towel during Gibraltar's hour of greatest need, it appears unlikely that he will be standing for re-election.

'Not long ago, Mr Caruana used to say that he would like to be Chief Minister for ever. That is not his view anymore,' the newspaper explained, lamenting his 'extraordinary change of mind.'

Although disillusionment with the dirty tricks which have surrounded the Anglo-Spanish talks is likely one of the reasons behind Mr Caruana's plans for departure, a desire to return to his chosen field also seem to have played a part:

'You know, one of the great problems that faces me is, the longer I stay out of the legal profession, the harder it is for me to get back in,' the Chief Minister is quoted by Panorama as explaining.
