Carwyn Jones’ Brexit Scaremongering Busted

Carwyn Jones’ scaremongering about Brexit during last night’s debate included the claim that businesses would leave Wales if Britain left the EU. Citing the examples of Toyota and Airbus, the Welsh First Minister said: “They’re interested in a market of 500 million people… These are all companies that are in Wales because it’s a European base for them.” When Farage disputed this, Jones insisted: “Nigel, I speak to them, what do you do?” So, would Toyota and Airbus quit if Britain voted to leave?
