Crabb: 'I can unite the party and unite the country'

Pembrokeshire MP Stephen Crabb has told ITV News he is 'well placed' to unite the Conservative party and the United Kingdom as he campaigns to become the next Tory leader.

The Work and Pensions Secretary told ITV Cymru Wales' Political Editor Adrian Masters there would be no second referendum following the vote to leave the European Union.

Mr Crabb said it would be a 'massive gross breach of trust' to not accept the electorate's decision and he will take Britain out of the European Union if he becomes the next Prime Minister.

He also said he would better spend European money in Wales.

It's a travesty we've had billions of EU money coming into south Wales because its a poor region of Europe."

"We still have railway lines built to carry coal because we've had rules surrounding that funding that stopped us using it for the big ticket things that can help our economy.

"That's what I'm keen to change and use the money far better"

– Stephen Crabb

He also insists he is 'entirely, entirely happy' on the law regarding same sex marriage despite voting against the legislation.
