THE Conservative candidate for Llanelli Tamara Reay has written a letter to Labour’s candidate Nia Griffith setting with its main agenda being the hottest issue of the last few years, BREXIT. In the letter (below) the conservative parliamentary candidate for Llanelli asked what the Labour candidate’s plans are to get Brexit done. There is a common thread running through many of the interviews we have conducted of late. Brexit and either pinning the ‘remain’ flag firmly to the mast or the ‘leave’ flag. There can be no doubt about the plans for Llanelli and the UK from the content within the letter from Tamara Reay.
Dear Nia, Will you help get Brexit done?
Without a plan to get Brexit done it is impossible to have credibility on anything else.
As you will know, appearing on the BBC Question Time Leaders Special, Jeremy Corbyn – your Party Leader – confirmed that he has decided to take no position on Brexit and remain Printed and promoted by Siôn Davies of 1 Park View Terrace, Llanelli, SA15 3HA.
“neutral”. This means he would hold a second referendum in which he was not even willing to back an arrangement that he had negotiated. And he refused to rule out a second referendum on Scottish independence – the price the SNP would demand for propping him up in a hung parliament.
1. Do you agree with Jeremy Corbyn’s decision to remain neutral on Brexit?
2. What is your plan to get Brexit done?
3. Will you remain neutral in a second referendum, and if not, how will you campaign?
4. Will you refuse to support any government which is reliant on the votes of the SNP
and a second independence referendum?
My view, and that of most people I have met in Llanelli is that it is wrong to force people to vote again – in fact many have said to me “will there be a re-run of the General Election in Llanelli if there is the wrong result?”
It’s wrong to rip up a deal when it’s clear you have no plan; and wrong to play games with our precious union. There must be no more dither and delay – we need to get Brexit done and unleash our country’s potential.
I look forward to your response. Yours sincerely
Labour’s candidate for Llanelli responded:
“I have made my position on Brexit clear, that we should let the people decide. The Tories’ Sell Out Brexit deal will cost local jobs and make our communities poorer. It risks selling off our NHS to Donald Trump. Here in Llanelli we remember the last time a Tory Prime Minister destroyed our industry and forced people out of their jobs. I know that people are tired of the Brexit debate. That’s why Labour will settle this with a People’s Vote, within six months of the election. Whether you voted Leave or Remain, I believe that people deserve a final say on Brexit. I will be campaigning to remain”
