Penarth’s Conservative AM Andrew R T Davies said there should be a vote – eityher in a referendum or in a general election – on the final negotiated terms of the UK’s withdrawal from the Eutropean Union
Davies – who is leader of the Conservatives in the Welsh Assembly – supported the victorious “Leave” campaign in this month’s EU Referendum.
Meanwhile the Welsh Labour Government’s First Minister Carwyn Jones – who supported the losing “Remain” campaign in the referendum and found that the overwhelming majority of people in Wales were against him – has now said that a second vote would ‘make people angrier’ and wants the negotiations started as soon as possible
Andrew R T Davies says if the UK Government wins a a deal which is “secure, robust and meets the aspirations of the British people – who expressed that via the referendum – then they can continue with the mandate to 2020 – but that will be a political decision
He says “ultimately it will be a decision taken to empower the British people either to endorse that agreement or, if not at referendum, at the general election of 2020, people will be able to cast their opinion.”
