Brexit continues to have a devastating impact in Wales

Published on June 25, 2023

Brexit continues to have a devastating impact in Wales. From small family-run enterprises to our vital service industries, from universities to our construction sector. Everything and everyone in this great country has been negatively impacted by Brexit.

In constituencies such as mine, small businesses have been let down by the government in Westminster, and their refusal to admit the truth about Brexit is absolutely appalling. That’s why I have been working with organisations like the European Movement UK and Wales for Europe. 

Together, we have been campaigning to end the political silence on Brexit, we have been fighting for an official public inquiry into the economic impact of Brexit and we have been working to hold the government accountable for the damage Brexit has caused in Wales.  

That’s why today, I’m encouraging you to join the European Movement UK. With your support this organisation can fight harder than ever before to reverse the calamity of Brexit here in Wales.

Seven years ago, my constituency of Dwyfor Meirionnydd voted to remain in the EU. But we all know that wasn’t the norm here in Wales. There was an overwhelming attitude that we would be better off outside of the EU.  

I believe that the people of Wales felt this way, not out of racism or stupidity but out of optimism for a better future. But if the last seven years have taught us anything it’s that this future was the biggest lie of all. 

Today, it is becoming clearer that Brexit is exacerbating the cost-of-living crisis, it is negatively impacting our NHS and, because of this, Bregret is at an all-time high. A recent poll by UnHerd Britain 2023 showed that in all 40 Wales constituencies, the number of people regretting Brexit now outnumbers its dwindling supporters. 

People have woken up to the truth – momentum is building - Brexit has failed.  

While I am doing my absolute best to keep up the pro-Europe voice in Westminster, I need your help to build the grassroots movement against Brexit in the run-up to a 2024 general election. 

I urge you to join the European Movement, the more members they can get the more impact and influence they can have in their fight to reverse the calamity of Brexit.  


The last seven years have been one long nightmare. And I’m here to tell you enough is enough.  

Workplace shortages, red tape, struggling public services – together we can end this once and for all.
