‘Time to put Welsh independence on the agenda’ – Plaid Cymru

The leader of Plaid Cymru said that her party would be outlining moves to “put independence on the agenda now in order to safeguard Wales’s future”, in light of last week’s European Union referendum.

Commenting on action ahead for Wales in light of the fallout from Britain voting to exit the European Union, Leanne Wood said:

“Even though this situation was not of our making, Plaid Cymru believes that redesigning the current UK is the only option. A new union of independent nations working together for the common good”.

“The Welsh economy and our constitution face unprecedented challenges,” she added. “We must explore options that haven’t been properly debated until now.”

“It’s time to put independence on the agenda now in order to safeguard Wales’s future,” the party leader continued. “This is about us beginning a national conversation rather than calling for a referendum, though that is where it will end up.”

“People in Wales should have control over the decisions that impact on the day to day control of their lives.”
