The Welsh Lib Dems have claimed an Exit from Brexit is within Wales’ grasp; following the ruling from the European Court of Justice (ECJ) that Article 50 can be unilaterally revoked by Britain without affecting the terms of our membership.
The ruling stressed that any decision to revoke Article 50 must “follow a democratic process,” but it means that Brexit can be stopped simply by Parliament reversing its decision to invoke Article 50 and the UK Government clearly communicating this to the EU.
Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Jane Dodds said;
This momentous ruling from the European Court of Justice means an Exit from Brexit is closer than ever. We now know that whether we leave the EU is entirely in our hands.
We now have a clear opportunity to stop Brexit and we must take it. The people must have the final say and the opportunity to choose an Exit from Brexit.
We’ve long said that there is no relationship with the EU after Brexit that can be as good as our current relationship. Now we know that we can stay in the EU and keep our current relationship simply by revoking Article 50.
