It is being reported today that the People’s Vote campaign has printed millions of leaflets urging people to vote for People’s Vote parties and have included Labour in that description – despite Labour being a pro-Brexit party and despite Labour’s manifesto failing to unequivocally support a People’s Vote.
Commenting, Plaid Cymru MP for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr Jonathan Edwards said:
“It is extremely disappointing to see the People’s Vote campaign include Labour in this leaflet.
“Let’s be clear: there is no conceivable way that Labour could be described as being pro-People’s Vote when its leadership is doing everything in can to deliver Brexit without one.
“Their manifesto makes a complete fudge of Brexit and a People’s Vote.
“Plaid Cymru is the only pro-People’s Vote party that can win in Wales. We are appealing to people across the political spectrum – and particularly Labour supporters exasperated at their party’s prevarication – to lend us their votes in this European election.
“As Gina Miller’s tactical voting platform Remain United declared yesterday, Labour is a pro-Brexit party, and the only way to stop Farage from winning is to vote for Plaid Cymru.”
