1066 > 2006: England Reborn - Britain Dying

We welcome the rebirth of one of Europe's first nation states - England. As Welsh nationalists we rejoice in England's new found national pride - more so than many English people. It's time the British nationalists saw the writing on the wall. Britain is dying, and good riddance to it too.

Let the Labour Party and the BNP fly the Union Jack, the rest of us will get on nicely as Welsh, Scottish and English nationalists. When is Plaid Cymru going to come out clearly for an English Parliament, yes, even at the probable and necessary loss of our (useless) MPs?

It's not about football, it's bigger than that - Bryan Appleyard, The Times, July 02, 2006

Can you tell me Nicholas why you are so keen on England? If someone wishes to identify themselves as British who are you, or anyone else for that matter, to tell them they are wrong to do so?

Please don't answer by suggesting that the trend is away from Britishness toward Englishness; if trend made something right Welshness would have long since been considered an illegitimat aspiration.
