Neil Hamilton AM, the leader of UKIP in Wales and a member of the Welsh Assembly for Mid & West Wales, told the recent debate in the Assembly on Brexit that any prospect of a deal with the European Union was undermined by the British government under Theresa May and by “Remain fanatics” such as ex-Chancellor Philip Hammond.
He said nobody wants to be in the position we are currently in and that a “free trade deal” with the EU would be in everybody’s interest:
Wales, of course, voted for Brexit but its government is led by the now overtly Remoaning Labour Party. Welsh First Minister, Mark Drakeford recently said a WTO Brexit must be resisted and accused Prime Minister Boris Johnson of leading a government which has “lost all respect for the truth” and its “moral compass”.
Welsh AMs voted to oppose the plan to suspend Parliament and to declare a no-deal Brexit would “cause significant short-term disruption and deep long-term damage to Wales”, by 32 votes to 12.
