    I was referring to political Welsh nationalism, with it's agenda for independence from the rest of the UK, separatiion from the monarchy leading to a republic.
    The issue gets raised constantly by Welsh Nats, who always naively.underestimate the strength of feeling of the majority, who oppose their agenda.

    You were referring to to political Welsh nationalism by referring specifically to Yes Cymru in order to prove a tweet had a "Stream of racist anti-English comments running through the whole thread" by linking an unrelated tweet posted a day before the tweet I posted? Is that right?

    Yes Cymru is an insult to the majority in Wales, who have steadfastly rejected any calls or arguments to separate from the other three nations. Royalists, quite rightly, regard it as nothing less than treason.

    It's another fringe lunacy organisation that would rather see Wales economically smashed against the rocks, than remain a vibrant part of the UK Union.

    The journey to Welsh Independence will be a very closely run race, between the Welsh Indepence movement and their English Independence counterparts, which are both showing increasing popularity.

    English think Scottish and Welsh governments did better handling coronavirus than Boris Johnson - poll - https://www.theneweuropean.co.uk/top-stories/yes-cymru-poll-on-coronavirus-in-united-kingdom-1-6712533

    ...A new poll from YouGov found that just 41% think Boris Johnson’s administration dealt with the pandemic very well or fairly well, with 53% saying it had done a bad job.

    The polling found that 57% believed Nicola Sturgeon’s handling of the crisis in Edinburgh had been better, with just 19% giving it a bad rating.

    Mark Drakeford’s Welsh administration received a 50% approval rating compared to 17% who said it had performed badly.

    Stormont in Northern Ireland received a 45% approval rating, with just 13% believing it had done badly....

    So what you're saying is that we should have a combined Celtic nation, jointly administered by Cardiff and Edinburgh, with England being a semi-autonomous region?

    It's just a case of who gets there first.

    Welsh Independence or English Independence.

    The race is on

    Wales 'losing its heritage' with name changes

    A petition to stop Welsh place names being changed to English will be discussed by members of the Senedd.

    It has so far received 6,958 signatures, surpassing the 5,000-threshold needed for it to be discussed by the petitions committee.

    It states that "little by little, the country is losing its heritage" and "this must be stopped for the sake of future generations".

    Former First Minister Carwyn Jones is among those who have added their voice.

    when they say locals are priced out of the market, why aren't they complaining about the greedy locals who are selling up to the English, rather than selling for less to locals?

    with all due respect, only Boris had to deal with London, a global city. neither Wales, Northern Ireland or Scotland have anything remotely resembling a decent beta city, never mind an alpha. What is concerning is that you are unable to see how having to manage Covid19 in London alone would be considerably more difficult than managing Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland combined.

    "It has been a long-running debate in Wales, with comedian Tudur Owen describing how "history is lost when place names are changed".

    He gave the example of Cable Bay on Anglesey - allegedly named in English because someone laid a cable there.

    "Except of course it's not. It never was Cable Bay. It is Porth Trecastell," he said. "Porth translates as access point or gateway for travel, trade and fishing."
