Theresa May Must Give Wales a People’s Vote

As Theresa May visits Wales to attend the Royal Welsh Winter Fair and try and gain support for her Brexit deal, the Welsh Lib Dems have urged the Prime Minister to give the people of Wales the final say on Brexit.

Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Jane Dodds said:

It’s all very well for the Prime Minister to try and get the people’s support for her Brexit deal, but this is not enough. The only way to get the people’s approval or rejection of any Brexit deal is through a People’s Vote.

I hope in her visit to Wales today the Prime Minister appreciates the scale of change in public opinion on Brexit since 2016. Poll after poll is clear, in remain and leave constituencies alike the people want to have the final say on Brexit.

Theresa May’s Brexit deal is the worst of all worlds and would leave Wales and the UK as rule-takers, not rule-makers. There is no post-Brexit relationship with the EU that can be better than our existing relationship.

We have led the fight for a People’s Vote for the last two years and we will keep fighting. We’re clear, the people must be given the final say and the opportunity to choose an Exit from Brexit.
