Over 3 and a half years ago the people of Wales voted to leave the European Union.

I was elected as a Member of European Parliament in 2014 and again in 2019 with a mandate of first getting a referendum on our membership of the EU and then delivering the result of that referendum.

Ever since our historic vote where 17.4 million people across our United Kingdom voted to take back control of our laws, our money, our borders, our sovereignty and our trade deals, the political establishment has tried EVERYTHING to block our Brexit.

They used their money.

They used their marches.

They brought politically dead politicians like Tony Blair back to life to tell us we had got it wrong.

They used our Parliament to make laws making it harder for the Prime Minister to carry out our vote.

They used every trick in the book and in the end, we the people prevailed.

We’ve had to tell them more than once, but the message has been heard loud and clear every single time.

We voted to leave and we still want to leave.

We want to be an independent country, free to make her own laws and make her own decisions.

Let us never forget that this was a decision of the people, by the people, for the people.

A new dawn is now breaking on an independent United Kingdom.
