    Erm, why not? EU will be very happy to accept Wales/Scotland/NI as new members, obviously subject to EU rules like EURO, Shengen zone (so hard border with England) etc.

    Essentially independence will be the only way they will be able to join EU, thanks to Brexit it will lead to break up of the Union, well done chaps.

      A huge "IF" in reality. Those of us not restrained by a kind of simpleton's tunnel vision have seen this coming all along.
      But it has been entertaining to watch you trot out your ever more fanciful explanations.

      Keep it up.......it will probably be Xmas before the inevitable penny drops for you, and by then you can get busy in Panto season playing the rear end of the horse again!

          I don't understand Brexiters obsession with Catalan seeing as the whole referendum was illegal so everything related to it is moot...
          Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

              I don't understand the remoaners obsession with being ruled by an organisation that approves of beating peaceful protesters with truncheons!

                Do you think the South east will be full of the Welsh sleeping 8 to a room and living on minimum wage to earn enough to send home because there will total unemployment in Wales?

                  I think very soon it will be a challenge to find people who will readily admit they voted for Brexit

                      Adam Price said a hard or no-deal Brexit would be a crisis for Wales that could prompt people to turn away from Labour, which has dominated the political scene for a century, and become more open to the idea of independence.

                      Price has said he will learn lessons from the Scottish National party about putting in place the machinery to win power and said a Plaid government would give the people of Wales the chance to vote for independence by 2030 at the latest.

                      Brexit == Breakup of the Union == Treason

                      I wonder how that would sit constitutionally. After all Wales is a conquered nation and as a principality ruled by the eldest son and heir to the British Throne.
