Wales reacts to the resignation of Brexit Secretary David Davis

It’s Monday morning. You have just awoken but can’t quite pull yourself out of bed. It’s week three of a nationwide heatwave and you are not feeling your best. Well. Neither is Brexit Secretary David Davis.

This is not a drill. This is real life (honest). As you come around from what can only be described as a nightmare; you have to ask the question.. is there now going to be another General Election? Following Friday’s lock-in at Chequers, the Prime Minister Theresa May revealed her Government’s compromise Brexit plan; but not all agree that this is the right way to move forward.

In his resignation letter to the Prime Minister, David Davis reiterated that he had disagreed with the Number 10 policy line on multiple occasions over the last year or so and evidently this latest development was not something he could support.

With a Brexit White Paper due on Thursday, this was set to be a week where more and more information would be revealed but now everything must surely come to a thundering hault? With three of the five Brexit department’s ministers having now resigned, and with only months until the United Kingdom is set to leave the European Union we take a look at how Assembly Members across Wales have reacted to this latest development.

This page will be updated with more commentary today as the news breaks.
