“The European Parliament must give its consent by a simple majority to the withdrawal agreement negotiated by the UK and the EU. It’s a very significant power...
“The [European Parliament] is going to be important in determining the final withdrawal agreement. It has to receive regular information on its progress and the Council of Ministers needs to obtain the European Parliament’s consent...
“It has the right to withhold consent to the final consent to the final agreement so it’s got a lot of political leverage to influence the agreement [which] in effect makes it a veto player.”
"If a majority of the European Parliament don't like it they can in effect veto negotiations. I think that's a very big power.What could she imagine would be the reaction be if the EU were to veto Brexit. Even many Remainers would be angry and it would I believe lead to a huge Anti-EU backlash.
"When the true implications of withdrawal are known a lot of people will change their minds."
The right of succession must surely rest with the state seeking it. Ms Clwyd's plan seems similar to those who call for a vote by the whole of the UK on a Scottish Independence Referendum.
Ms Clwyd is also urging MEPs to invite Prime Minister Theresa May to address them.
"The referendum was advisory and we should have looked at the advice, but still properly considered the implications of leaving the EU, which weren't clear to any of us - elected politicians didn't know."A spokesman for the Department for Exiting the EU said:
"We here in the UK parliament are still finding out about it. We know, just in the last few days, we may have to pay an enormous bill if we exit the EU."
Leaving the EU would be detrimental to the Cynon Valley and the rest of Wales,
"The prime minister has been clear we want to protect the status of EU nationals already living in the UK.
"The only circumstances in which that wouldn't be possible is if British citizens' rights in the EU were not protected in return."This does seem that the UK government are holding other EU Nationals living here to ransom.
I believe Brexit is a foolhardy move based on lies . I also am unconvinced that all those who voted for it did so expecting the Hard Brexit that the Tories are pushing through Parliament.
But if there is any move to stop it then it must come from the electors of these Islands, I hope it happens and that it becomes clear that a majority are not happy with the result of any negotiations . But Ms Clwyd seeming call for the EU withhold consent to the final consent to the final agreement is not going to make our task easier
