Starmer blames ‘outrageous’ Brexit deal for ‘taking money from Wales’

Keir Starmer slammed the Tories for striking a “broken Brexit deal” for “taking money from Wales” at the Welsh Labour Conference today. The politician, who campaigned to stay in the EU and once pushed for a second Brexit referendum before promising Labour would “embrace” the deal struck, claimed it was an “outrage” that Downing Street was “taking” funds away from the local Welsh Government and said he would “return power” of Wales’ economic destiny back to Wales.
