Unfortunately I have come to the conclusion that we are not going to stop Brexit and the sort of campaign the Lib Dems are campaigning on yjt a vote for them is a vote to Remain.
But that does not mean that we should give the Tories a Free hand in the negotiations and they and they allies should not be allowed to turn it into a Xenophobic Little Englander on the rest of the Eu,
In her speech in Bridgend yesterday she said
In 44 days, voters in Wales have a fresh chance to reject this kind of ‘politics as usual’. The General Election is a chance for them to turn their backs on the politicians who have turned their backs on them, and to embrace a new approach that is right for Wales and right for Britain.Scotland voted to Remain but Mrs May claims to speak for them , but beside that when has Tory policies ever been good for Scotland bit especially Wales
For this election is not about the kind of tribal politics that has held sway in Wales and elsewhere for many years. It is not about calling in old favours or relying on past allegiance. It is about the future.It is an opportunity to provide this United Kingdom with the strong and stable leadership it needs to see us through Brexit and beyond. It is a chance to lock in the economic progress we have made together over the past seven years.How many ordinary people who have seen their Pay not meet inflation, or those who have sen their benefits slashed or those who have been forced into Food Banks in echo of Victorian so called philanthropy have seen any economic progress?
But lets look at May on Brexit
And it is your chance to strengthen Britain’s hand as we negotiate with Europe to ensure we get the right deal for ordinary working people everywhere. A deal that will help us build a stronger Wales, as part of a more secure Britain.Securing that deal is my priority and we have the plan to do it. A plan to regain control of our own money, our own laws and our own borders, and to be free to strike trade deals with old friends and new partners all around the world.Yet our Labour, LibDem and Nationalist opponents – Plaid Cymru here in Wales and Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP in Scotland – are already seeking to disrupt our negotiations, even as 27 other European countries line up to oppose us.For a start Mes May hand has not been weakened one iota in the House of Commons, she has lost not one Brexot vote .
The European Union has already indicated that an increased Tory majority will make no difference in the negotiations from one side.
It will however if Mrs May riding on a Landslide thinks that she can bully the EU into agreeing all her terms.
It will do the opposite and the EU will look at the xenophobic rhetoric coming from the UK which will damage future relations,
Even Mrs May's hope that the US will ride to our rescue has bern shattered with Trump indicating its Europe he wants to work out Trade agreements with.
The Scottish Referendum always was base on "We want to leave as friends" the UK seems intent on leaving the EU as enemies .
Leaver or Remainer do you really want this. Do you want Brexit to leave a legacy of hostility with out fellow Europeans.
We are going to need friends in Europe not only with the likes of Norway but with EU members , May's attitude will leave us with none.
