Iestyn ap Rhobert, Yes Cymru chair said:
“The London Government’s action will have the effect of undermining devolution in grabbing back powers which should come to Wales when the British state leaves the European Union.
Yes Cymru supports the fact that Carwyn Jones – along with Nicola Sturgeon – has condemned Westminster’s insulting actions; but we need far more than words alone to defend Wales from this UK Government which is looking for every opportunity to undermine our democracy.”
Iestyn ap Rhobert added:
“An opinion poll commissioned by Yes Cymru in May 2017 clearly demonstrated that more and more people are open to the idea of independence for Wales. 26% of those asked were in favour of independence and another 16% were neither for nor against. This support will certainly increase in response to the way in which the Conservatives are undermining our national Legislature.
As Wales is undermined and made more vulnerable, Yes Cymru strongly maintains that independence is the only viable option for our national future. Wales must now seriously consider independence.”
