Brexit: Gill hopes MPs remain EU exit democrats

Wales’ UKIP MEP Nathan Gill has urged former Labour leadership candidate Owen Smith to listen to his constituents as the Pontypridd MP calls for new legislation to allow Parliament the option of holding a second EU referendum.

The High Court ruled the government could not trigger Article 50 without Parliament’s support and Mr Smith said the government should be able to ask people if they are certain they want to leave Europe.

Mr Gill, the former UKIP leader in Wales, told BBC Wales’ Sunday Politics programme he hoped Mr Smith and fellow EU sympathisers would “vote the way their electorate voted”.

Mr Smith’s Pontypridd Westminster consistency is part of Rhondda Cynon Taff where 62,590 of people voted to leave the EU and 53,973 voted to remain.
