Describing the difference independence would make to Wales' status in the EU, she said: "We have four MEPs - we'd have about 12. We'd have our own commissioner and we'd be voting in the Council of Ministers."
She continued: "When you say to people that six of the 27 member states are smaller than Wales, people are really shocked by that... It becomes clearer to people we'd be much better off as an independent member of the European Union."
In what way exactly?
Several questions to ponder:
1. As an independent state would Wales obtain more financial support from the EU than present?
2. What kind of real power do those 6 smaller countries wield (in comparison to the UK) in the all important
3. In a parliament of over 785 MEPs is there a great deal of difference in terms of influence wielded between having 4 and 12 seats?
4. And most important of all, if Wales were to separate from the rest of the United Kingdom, what’s the guarantee that the European Union would even accept them into the club anyway?
