Express claims Plaid Cymru MS has ‘concerns’ about breakup of the union
The Express has claimed that a Plaid Cymru MS has “concerns” about the breakup of the union.
The right-wing London-based newspaper made the suggestion after speaking to Rhys ab Owen, who supports Welsh independence and is a Senedd member for a pro-independence party.
An article in the publication suggested that concerns about the union breaking up have “grown, not only in Westminster, but also in Cardiff”.
It based this on an argument by the Plaid Cymru Senedd member, who represents South Wales Central, that if Scotland becomes independent, it “weakens Wales’ position” within the union.
The article in the Express said: “Concerns over the break-up of the Union have grown, not only in Westminster, but also in Cardiff.
“Express.co.uk spoke to Rhys ab Owen from Wales’ nationalist Plaid Cymru party about the consequences of Scottish independence.
Rhys ab Owen told the Express: “I would argue it even weakens Wales’s position if Scotland becomes independent.
“You know, England is so much bigger than the other nations already, 56 million compared to Wales’s three and Scotland’s five million.
“With Scotland going that even makes the disparity even greater doesn’t it.”
