EU referendum result

In response to the EU referendum result, Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has issued the following statement:

“I am very disappointed with last night’s referendum result.  The important thing, however, is now to look to the future and to recognise that Britain, and especially Wales, must not look inward but forge new relationships with Europe and the wider world.  Trade is vital to our economic well-being and we must do our utmost to ensure that we are able to export easily to as many markets as possible.

 “We must also reject intolerance and prejudice.  In the modern world, it is vital that we work with others across national borders and recognise that there is more which unites human beings than divides them”.

Wales Stronger In Europe

Wayne David Labour MP for Caerphilly, Hefin David Labour AM for Caerphilly and prominent Plaid Cymru former AM, Lindsay Whittle, have agreed a joint statement urging voters in the Caerphilly Borough to vote “remain” in next week’s referendum.

In an unprecedented move the Labour and the Plaid Cymru politicians have agreed the following statement:

“The vote on 23 June is of critical importance. Although we have clear political differences, the three of us strongly believe that it is in the best interests of Wales and its people that there is a Remain vote. Wales benefits from our membership of the European Union, as does the Caerphilly Borough, and we believe that we would be worse off if we left the EU.

“Wales receives far more money from the EU than it puts in and in the Caerphilly Borough there are many projects and initiatives which are funded by the EU. If Britain pulls out of the EU we believe that it is extremely unlikely that the current Conservative Government will make up the shortfall.

“We want to see a prosperous and outward-looking Wales. That is why we are urging the people of the Caerphilly Borough to vote Remain.”

Wales Stronger In Europe

Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has condemned the Leave campaign in the strongest possible terms.  Sam Gould, prominent member of UKIP, and a leading Leave campaigner, has posted a video on Facebook which is ‘a calculated lie from beginning to end’.

On the video, Mr Gould states that Wayne David instructed the local Council to move a UKIP stall in Caerphilly town centre on Saturday morning.  Wayne David emphatically says this was not the case and his denial has been confirmed by Gwent Police. 

Since the posting of the video, Wayne David has been subjected to verbal abuse and intimidation on the streets of Caerphilly and on Twitter and Facebook from Leave supporters.

Wayne David said, "Sam Gould knows that when the Police asked the Leave supporters to move their stall (for, I am told, safety reasons as it was close to a zebra crossing), I was not in the vicinity.  I was in a Constituency Advice Surgery.  His comments are a down-right lie and is an attack upon the integrity of the Police.  It is basic to our democracy that we all understand that the Police must act in an impartial manner to protect the public and uphold the law.

"Caerphilly is seeing an unpleasant side of the Leave campaign.  I hope people will see through this abuse and intimidation and cast their votes on 23 June on the basis of argument and not because of loutish behaviour and lies".
