“Welsh independence is seemingly our only way out”, Plaid Cymru’s Westminster Leader, Liz Saville Roberts has said, following confirmation of the final two candidates in the Conservative leadership race.
Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt were selected in the final ballot of Tory MPs, receiving 160 and 77 votes respectively. The Conservative Party membership of roughly 100,000 people, will now choose between the two candidates with the winner becoming Conservative Leader and Prime Minister.
Commenting, Liz Saville Roberts said:
“There is a palpable sense of concern. Whoever wins, we now face a Prime Minister willing to deliver a disastrous No Deal Brexit.
“Welsh independence is seemingly our only way out.
“At a time when we are facing the greatest political crisis since the Second World War, the Labour Party is so confused about its Brexit position that the only thing they are managing to oppose is themselves.
"Now we face a Tory Prime Minister who seems intent on delivering a damaging Brexit policy in order to keep their party together. Westminster is simply not working for Wales.
“In fact, there have never been better adverts for Welsh independence than Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt.”
