There’s an ‘ever more powerful case’ for a new Brexit referendum, according to an Assembly Member who wants to take over from Carwyn Jones as Labour leader and First Minister.
Health Secretary Vaughan Gething said confusion and division in the UK Government over its negotiating stance looks set to lead to a bad deal for Britain.
The Cardiff South and Penarth AM made his comments in a speech in Trevethin near Pontypool as part of his campaign to become Welsh Labour leader.
The Welsh Labour leadership contest hasn’t officially begun yet and won’t until Carwyn Jones formally stands down in September.
However the frontrunner, Finance Secretary Mark Drakeford has already won the public backing of 12 other AMs. To be in the contest a candidate needs five nominations along with their own vote.
Vaughan Gething has public pledges of support from four other AMs but he says he’s confident he will have enough to be in the contest.
Two other leading AMs, Eluned Morgan and Huw Irranca-Davies, have also said they hope to stand but say they haven’t yet asked fellow AMs for their public nominations.
