Why try to block Brexit?

ANOTHER party leader under the cosh is Plaid Cymru’s Leanne Wood. Fellow AMs Rhun ap Iorwerth and Adam Price are challenging her in a leadership ballot, as is their democratic right under rule.

But the debate will need to connect more with reality if it is to grab the imagination of the Welsh people.

Empty slogans about “Real Independence” or a “New Wales” and delusions about winning the 2021 and 2026 National Assembly elections will engage next to nobody. 

The three candidates might do better to explain why they would block Brexit, despite its support from the majority of referendum voters in Wales, knowing that this would leave powers in scores of policy areas in the hands of Brussels bureaucrats, instead of them coming back to elected representatives in Cardiff and Westminster.
