Brexit Update..

 The Canary Islands are lobbying Spain and the European Union for a good Brexit deal

 

  

The deal is hoped for as Canaries is fearing its economy could go under if Britain is penalized and tourists stop visiting the holiday hotspot. Tenerife’s president Carlos Alonso is leading the bid, submitting plans to the Spanish government and EU for smooth travel between Britain and the Canaries in the wake of Brexit.

He will need his allies in Madrid to lobby for a good  Brexit deal on his behalf to ensure Tenerife’s economy is not decimated by a loss of tourism income. Mr Alonso told reporters: “The aim is to maintain the existing conditions and relations between the

Canaries and the UK and therefore exclude the Canaries and Tenerife of the effects of Brexit.
