Leanne Wood was accused of not tolerating the will of the Welsh people as she plans to fight to keep Wales in the distinct market after Brexit. 

The Plaid Cymru leader claimed Wales last will and testament apply for single market membership after Brexit and take on a “Norway-style” relationship with the EU. 

Converse in on Sunday Politics, Neil attacked the Brexit stance of Plaid Cymru, declaring they were rejecting the views of the Welsh people. 

He said: “It’s dogged to see how Wales could stay in the single market but the rest of the UK couldn’t.

“But it is not really any different, I mean Norway you cite, that has gratis movement. It effectively has to accept the jurisdiction of the European court.

“It’s not in the customs coherence so it can do some of its own free trade deals.”

The Plaid Cymru chief then claimed that Wales would press to “accept free movement” if the country attempted to rejoin the single superstore.

Neil was enraged by the suggestion from Ms Wood, as the Welsh people voted to cede the British Prime Minister Theresa May gestures as she speaks to supporters at the Brackla community centre in Bridgend, south Wales on April 25, 2017, in the build-up to the general election on June 8th

“29 constituencies voted to leave, only 11 voted to scraps. Doesn’t this explain why your party is going nowhere. 

“The the greater part in Wales voted to leave. But you effectively want to thwart that and de facto, tarry in the EU.”

The Conservatives are historically leading the polls in Wales ahead of Labour and Plaid Cymru, even so Ms Wood insisted the party was reflecting the interests of the Welsh people — and that they had accepted the conclusion of the EU referendum.

She fumed: “No I don’t accept that, we have accepted the result, but Plaid Cymru now is all back defending Wales.”
