Swansea MP moonlights as a waiter to try to delay Article 50

Swansea MP Geraint Davies is fronting a video campaign as a waiter.

Mr. Davies wants the triggering of Article 50 to be delayed, which he explains in a video by serving tripe instead of chicken to a woman in a 'chicken restaurant'.

The campaign is centred round a public parliamentary e petition supported by The Final Say video below featuring Mr. Davies MP and Angharad Mair Davies who are a waiter and a customer who "Didn’t get what she ordered"

The UK shouldn't be forced to leave the EU on terms nobody voted for.

Therefore Article 50 should be delayed until after the people have had the final say by voting on whether to accept the terms of the deal or to stay in the EU on current terms.

The video is a creative expression of this basic point and the petition enables a mass movement to form behind it.
