Scrap the Welsh Assembly (SWA), Wales’s largest anti-Senedd campaign group, has announced that voters should back UKIP in next month’s Senedd Elections. The SWA Board urged Welsh voters who want to drain the Cardiff Bay gravy train, to vote UKIP based on the party’s successful record of delivering on its promises to voters.
In a statement, Scrap the Welsh Assembly said:
“May’s Senedd Elections are crucial for Wales and the future of the entire United Kingdom. Earlier this year, Welsh First Minister, Mark Drakeford, declared that the United Kingdom was “over”.
“Drakeford’s comments and an increase in pro-independence Labour candidates shows that Labour will stop at nothing to cling on to power in Cardiff Bay – even if it risks the future of the British Union.
“UKIP has a successful track record of taking on the political establishment and winning against the odds. Voters must back a party that can get the job done, rather than other anti-Senedd parties who are simply desperate to hitch their carriage to the tax-payer funded gravy train.
“In the last Senedd term, UKIP’s Leader, Neil Hamilton, proposed two votes to scrap the Senedd but they were voted down by the Conservatives, Labour and Plaid. Brexit Party Members of the Senedd, now in Reform UK or Abolish the Assembly Party, refused to vote.
“Unlike any other party standing in this election, UKIP has called for an immediate referendum - they have the guts to take on Drakeford’s cronies in the Senedd. We urge all Welsh voters to give UKIP their vote, especially on the regional lists, to save Wales from another 20 years of political failure in Cardiff Bay.”
