United Kingdom CRUMBLING: ‘Even Wales’ now set to quit Union in wake of Brexit
Plaid Cymru leader: Wales CAN be independent
Meanwhile a Welsh consultant has suggested soaring levels of support meant Welsh independence could happen sooner rather than later. Danny Blanchflower previously worked for the Bank of England, is now a tenured professor at US Ivy League university, Dartmouth College, in New Hampshire, and also has an MSc in economics from the University of Wales, Cardiff.
He suggested the UK’s decision to quit the bloc posed a grave risk to the ties which bind England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland together.
He told the Nation Cymru website: “I think the major issue now is whether in order Scotland Northern Ireland and even Wales separate from the little Englanders and their dreams of empire.
“I suspect support in Wales will be impacted by what happens in Scotland.”

With reference to the deal signed by Mr Johnson, Mr Blanchflower said: “I called it the worst peacetime agreement a country had signed in 1,000 years.
“It will lower living standards a lot and likely break up the Union.
“My Scottish friends want to be in the EU.

“The only free trade deal in history that reduces the amount of free trade.
“It is clearly a thin deal that is bad and better than a much worse deal.
“It is like the guy who had to have his leg amputated and celebrates that post-op the wound is not infected.”

Mr Blanchflower also tipped Scotland to go it alone.
He said: “My assumption is Scotland would be welcomed including by countries like Spain who last time were unhappy about independence due to Catalonia but this time would support Scotland rejoining the EU club as a much put open friend who also dislikes extreme right-wing Little Englanders.”
Tegid Roberts, the director of Cadarn Consulting Ltd, also talking to Nation Cymru, added: “I would say that given support for Welsh independence is growing as rapidly as it is here the ‘even’ is now superfluous.”
A YouGov poll of 1,021 Welsh adults carried out in late May suggested 25 percent back the idea of full independence, up four percent on a similar survey in January 2020.
Commenting, Welsh independence campaigner Sion Jobbins told Express.co.uk: “At the moment we are building a movement for independence and making the case.
“The arguments for independence have never really been made in Wales, not even by Plaid Cymru, until very recently.
“Our main priority at the moment is building the campaign in Wales, not seeing permission from Westminster.
“We know also that once the Scottish referendum is held – and we believe will see a vote for Scotland becoming a nation-state – the situation in Wales will change dramatically as the UK will cease to exist.
“We set up YesCymru because we believed it was time to make the case clearly and confidently for independence otherwise people never hear the argument.”
