Welsh Independence – apparently not.

Following the Scottish Referendum, there has been lots of talk about the constitutional settlement in the UK – if Scotland gets more powers how should the other three countries in the union be affected? Wales seems to have it’s answer, and it apepars to be a, ‘No, thank you’.

Following the creation of the Welsh Assembly in 1997 (a referendum with a VERY narrow margin of victory) and further devolution of primary legislative powers in the referendum of 2011, Wales seems to have lost any enthusiasm it may have had for any permanent independence. In this research however, about half of those surveyed (and let’s remember the problem with trusting opinion polls) wanted more powers to the Welsh Parliament.
