Brexit- the people deserve a final say

Bridgend AM Carwyn Jones had the opportunity to contribute to today’s Plaid Cymru debate ‘A confirmatory European Union referendum.’

Mr Jones said “There is a duty on all of us to think carefully about where we go next as a society.

“It’s time to settle this once and for all; three years of incessant argument with no end. Britain is a laughing stock. It’s not the EU that fell apart because of Brexit; it’s Britain that’s doing it. Government in London is paralysed. Nothing is happening there. No-one took any notice to what happened with British Steel; it’s all about Brexit, utterly consuming. Jobs are being lost. We have to consider another referendum.”

'A confirmatory European Union referendum?

Had the opportunity to contribute to last week's Plaid Cymru debate 'A confirmatory European Union referendum.' There is a duty on all of us to think carefully about where we go next as a society.It's time to settle this once and for all; three years of incessant argument with no end. Britain is a laughing stock. It's not the EU that fell apart because of Brexit; it's Britain that's doing it. Government in London is paralysed. Nothing is happening there. No-one took any notice to what happened with British Steel; it's all about Brexit, utterly consuming. Jobs are being lost. We have to consider another referendum.To me, it's a two-question referendum. Question one: in the light of current circumstances, remain or leave? Question two: leave with a deal or without a deal? Settled. You ask those two questions, you get the answer one way or the other. Our politics is poisoned. Our society is fractured. We need to settle it. The people had a voice in 2016. They deserve a voice now. In sense, in reason, in democracy, the people deserve a final say.
