Welsh independence warning: Labour says referendum ‘on table’ – Union ‘never this fragile’

Story by the Express – A FURIOUS battle has been sparked between Cardiff and London today after a Welsh Cabinet Minister admitted a future independence referendum and the concept of an independent Wales was “on the table.” 

Wales Constitution Minister Mick Antoniw told BBC Radio Wales: “I think independence is always on the table if you get to a situation where the relationships between the nations of the UK break down to such an extent that people start questioning what is the purpose of the UK.” 

“I remember when the Scottish independence referendum took place in September 2014 the big question was, what is the purpose of the UK?”

“There wasn’t really a very good answer to that, and we’ve got to come up with those particular answers.”

“Because what we do recognise is that there’s a very significant degree of inter-dependence we have. Whether it be issues of currency, whether it be issues of trade, whether it be issues of movement.”

“We’ve got to cut through to some sort of collective agreement. What are the most important things that we’ve got to do collectively, and what are the things that are best handled as close to the people and as close to communities as possible.”

“That really is what the nature of the debate is about.”
