Geraint Davies is calling for the public to have a final say on leaving the European Union.
The people of Swansea have changed their minds on Brexit and 60% nationwide will want to remain in the European Union by January, a city MP has predicted.
Geraint Davies, MP for Swansea West, has been outspoken in his views that the public should be given a final say on leaving the EU, highlighting the need to protect 25,000 jobs in Swansea he says depend on membership.
He insisted there was a growing feeling in the city agreeing with his sentiments. His comments come a week after it was revealed his Bill calling for a second EU referendum is to have its second reading next month.
“People increasingly in Swansea are saying that’s not what I voted for,” Mr Davies said today.
“People voted for £350 million extra a week to the NHS and now we are told by the Financial Times we are currently actually losing £350 million a week through the impact of Brexit.
“People in Swansea wanted more money, not less. It has become apparent what the EU says happens. We’ve got no negotiation power.
“People in Wales are being hammered by the impact of Brexit going forward and now the penny is dropping. People now want to pull an Exit deal which is something I have called for personally.
“My prediction is by the end of January 60% will want to stay in the EU.”
