The Welsh Liberal Democrats have criticised Theresa May’s decision to call off tomorrow’s planned vote on her Brexit deal; claiming only an Exit from Brexit can stop this crisis.
The UK Government choose to postpone the planned vote on the Brexit Deal after admitting they would have lost the vote by a significant margin.
Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Jane Dodds said:
Brexit has become a national embarrassment. Negotiations with the EU have been chaotic since day one, but this is a new low. The fact Theresa May has postponed the vote on her deal to avoid defeat shows there is no support for her Brexit deal in Parliament.
Delaying the vote on her Brexit deal is an unprecedented blow to Theresa May’s authority, but it solves nothing. There is no majority for any Brexit deal in Parliament and now no majority for Brexit at all amongst the public. Whilst this remains the case, no Brexit deal will get through Parliament.
The only solution to the ongoing Brexit crisis is going back to the people. We must give the people the final say and the opportunity to choose an Exit from Brexit. This is the only solution and the Prime Minister should immediately back it.
