MP Labels British State ‘Tin Pot Dictatorship’ in PM’s move to shut down Parliament

PLAID Cymru’s Jonathan Edwards MP has responded to the Prime Minister’s plans to suspend Parliament to force through a crash out Brexit.

Carmarthen East and Dinefwr MP, Jonathan Edwards said:

“This is a cynical and fundamentally anti-democratic move by a man who sees no hypocrisy in shutting down parliament after arguing that leaving the European Union would somehow reinforce the sovereignty of parliament.

“The British State is now a tin pot dictatorship, this is not a move that you would expect from the Prime Minister of a modern democracy.

“Faced with what could be the most serious abuse of power in living memory, we must do everything we can to defend representative democracy .
“I am glad that Plaid Cymru agreed to put party rivalries aside yesterday and to work across the House to find a legislative route to stop Boris Johnson from forcing a crash out Brexit on the people of Wales and the rest of the UK. Plaid Cymru is now ready to dedicate all our energy to doing that.”
