Plaid Cymru leader, Leanne Wood, says the UK would have to be
prepared to accept some free movement of people, in order to stay
In her speech to the party's autumn conference, she said she accepted
the leave vote in Wales, but not a deal that would leave
Our Political Editor, Nick Servini, reports from Llangollen.
New infrastructure and a new relationship with the EU. That was
the focus today when Leanne Wood visited the site of a new science
block at a college near Wrexham. In her speech in Llangollen, she called
on Theresa May to listen to views from Wells, saying that while the
bargaining position was not as strong as the Scots, Welsh people
still deserved to have a say on Brexit. Her priority was clear,
protect the economy rather than control of borders. And she repeated
her claim that the so-called hard Brexit position favoured by the
Prime Minister was not the best option for Wales. Plaid Cymru accept
the referendum result. We might not have wanted this outcome but we have
to try and secure the best possible deal for Wales. But what we will
never accept is a negotiated deal which sees Wales worse off. This
weekend, Plaid has the luxury of being in Europe, its challenge is to
reconcile its support for soft Brexit, in which there could be
limited controls on immigration, with the wishes of so many people in
Wales converted to leave. Meanwhile, the debate continues over what kind
of relationship Plaid should have with Labour at the assembly. The
biggest cheer of Leanne Wood's speech came when she said she was
not seeking a coalition. Conference, we are not seeking a coalition with
the Labour Party. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE The party is
now in opposition but has struck a deal with Labour over the budget
this week. Assembly Member Neil McEvoy made the
most high-profile call against this, saying that Plaid should have
nothing to do with Labour. The simple truth is that what is right
for Wales is ending Labour rule. APPLAUSE You need to spend the next
4.5 years grinding them down, challenging them, at every
opportunity. This conference has been slightly
low-key, in keeping with the uncertainty surrounding Brexit. That
will have a major impact on where Plaid positions itself in future.
