Welsh politicians urged to fight independence

Welsh Conservative leader Andrew RT Davies is urging fellow Assembly Members to be more vocal about the benefits of being part of the United Kingdom. Ahead of a debate in the Senedd tomorrow, the Opposition leader said 'some senior Welsh politicians have been reluctant' to make the case for the UK.

September’s referendum on Scottish independence is a major threat to a union, which has been a major factor in the economic success of the UK nations.

I hope that all politicians who believe in the union will take the opportunity to argue for it and actively make the case to protect the UK from separatist wishful thinking that the grass might be greener.
