    Including the poor spelling, this one is clear to all. Personally I believe that the sooner we can get more English people to buy houses in Wales, the less of a problem it will be.

    Fine thanks TH. Just depressed that nearly every Yes Cymru thread that I see, appears to be no more than two degrees of separation away, from racist anti-English outbursts.

    Clearly the economic benefits to Wales from having tens of thousands of English home buyers, who can afford to buy here, outweigh the disadvantages from having locals who can't.

    It seems so. I posted a tweet which you jumped on claiming there was a "Stream of racist anti-English comments running through the whole thread". I couldn't see any and asked you for evidence. You claimed even more people were talking about it yesterday and I again asked for evidence, as did another poster.

    Your eventual evidence is an unrelated tweet posted the *day before* the one I posted.

    You want more evidence of anti-English racism?

    No, it doesn't surprise at all that there's racism & bigotry of all kinds to be found on twitter. What I want evidence of is a "Stream of racist anti-English comments running through the whole thread" from the tweet I posted. Unless you were mistaken, in which case we'll agree you were wrong and move on.

    Owing to a lack of forthcoming evidence from @Worse it appears he too is of the opinion that he was mistaken when he asserted that the tweet I posted had a "Stream of racist anti-English comments running through the whole thread".

    Apology accepted Dave mate, apology accepted. :thumbup:

    I second that. 'Hoisted by his own petard' springs to mind.

    His acknowledgement of his mistake and his subsequent apology have been most welcome.

    Any mention or connection to Yes Cymru is racist, or has racist anti-English overtones, or implications as far as I'm concerned.

    I have several friends and indeed, family members who are Welsh, live in Wales and own second homes in Wales.

    In that context, how is your example "more evidence of anti-english racism".

    Indeed, is "racism" between people of the same skin colour even a thing?

    Any reply to my request for evidence of a "Stream of racist anti-English comments running through the whole thread" from you which doesn't contain that evidence is an apology as far as I'm concerned. Thanks again for acknowledging your mistake, it takes a brave man to admit when he's wrong. :thumbup:

    Their stated goals are:

    "Our aim is to gain independence for Wales, in order to improve the way our country is governed. We believe in an inclusive citizenship, which embraces and celebrates the fact that everyone who chooses to make Wales their home – regardless of their background – are full citizens of the new Wales.

    Our group will promote independence for Wales through a range of activities, to make the case that Wales, like so many other nations throughout the world, would be better running its own affairs, as part of a wider European and international family. Our organisation is open to all who believe in independence for Wales."

    Well they know that over a hundred years spent preaching to the choir, hasn't brought about a desired result.

    Well Yes Cymru only started six years ago, so I've no idea where you're going with that argument

    Poor old Dai. He's backing the wrong horse again, and not for the first time.
