Plaid appear to have changed policy; LETTERS.
SOME politicians have conveniently short memories. On Andrew Marr's show last week, Plaid's leader Adam Price was asked about the Party of Wales' policy on stopping Brexit when the majority of the Welsh electorate voted leave, by 54% to 46%.
Adam explained that Plaid supports stopping Brexit because Plaid have not changed their policy. However, this is not true.
In the 2017 manifesto policy document "Defending Wales", published before the general election of that year, Plaid appears to have accepted Brexit.
Although few voters may closely study the parties' policy documents, they should be an accurate guide to what policies we are voting for, and well known to the candidates.
This document has been freely available on the Plaid website.
The manifesto "Defending Wales" reminds us several times that Plaid MPs are the hardest-working MPs in Westminster.
There is nothing to suggest that Plaid's policy is to stop Brexit.
Here are some quotes: "We will fight to get the best possible Brexit deal for Welsh Industry and Agriculture."
"We will secure all the money promised by the leave campaign and not a penny less."
There is no doubt that Plaid's policy in 2017 was to deliver a Brexit favouring Wales.
I would be interested to find out when, where and who changed Plaid's policy to opposing Brexit, with the policy of reversing the decision with a second referendum in which the party will now, unlike previously in 2017, campaign to remain.
