My contribution to the Welsh Assembly on the Legislative Consent Motion for our withdrawal from the European Union. Despite dragging…
I recently questioned the Minister for Finance on whether, based on the Welsh Government’s own Brexit scare stories, it was going to re-analyse its support for the Red Route, a road building scheme which will destroy unrecoverable ancient woodland in North Wales. As expected, the Welsh Government are happy to point to their scare stories but aren’t so comfortable about taking action based on them. It makes you wonder whether they believe it themselves!
The Remainer Welsh Government (there’s not a single Brexiter in the Labour group which includes the Welsh Cabinet) does not understand why we and so many other people in Wales voted to leave the EU. Having voted to Remain, they have no insight into why the rest of us disagreed with them or would want to leave the EU.
Despite a majority of Welsh people opting to leave the European Union in the referendum of 2016, you’d be forgiven for wondering why so few in the Senedd are trying to implement that result. Instead, the Cardiff Bay bubble is acting just like the Westminster bubble – undermining, insulting and fundamentally rejecting the decision of Wales.
