    How come they're not just narrow-minded French nationalists to you?

    We've spent the last hundred years either fighting them or saving their arses. Why would we want to be politically dominated by them?

    This is a fine example of the French stamping their feet and getting what they want, no matter what the cost might be down the line. Today, I also hear that the people want a referendum, but they can't decide on a subject ....

    The French love a good protest :nqat:

    Therein lies the weakness of your argument. Ninety three years of political failure have produced a minority political party, that can only don yellow vests in defence of crested newts, tadpoles and tunnels.

    It took Heydar Aliev a week to seize power in Azerbaijan. Museveni did it with just twelve men in Uganda. What do we have to look up to? A political group who have spent ninety three years, pleading and begging with people to allow them to take power.

    Most people couldn't give a KQVXZ for a political group of fanatical talibanites, that sees Welsh speaking newts and tadpoles, as being more important than a prosperous economically sound country.

    Well in my ideal world, Wales would be an independant member state of the United States of Europe, with equal representation to other member states. Not as we currently are, looked down upon and treated like shit by the English tory establishment.

    And the weakness of your argument is that the protesters are environmentalists not nationalists.

    I must admit to not being very well educated about the indigenous wildlife around Newport, so imagine my surprise that not only have newts developed the power of speech, but are also bilingual.

    Well we've been screwed over for years by the Tories. Now that we won't get any EU investment and the UK economy will generally be going to hell in a handcart in a few months time, what the hell.

    My only hope for the future prosperity of Wales is that we do gain Independence and EU membership.

    There's an awful lot of environmentalist nationalists retweeting this TH. Not too much concern expressed for the bees and tadpoles, or the flora and fauna.

    When I see the tanks on the streets of Penylan and Cyncoed then I'll believe it. Until then I'm afraid it's likely to me more of the same. Success breeds success and constant failure breeds...

    The EU doesn't work like that. They have systematically bled dry the UK (including what could have been spent in Wales) for the past 45 years and taken a political direction that was never envisaged back in 1973. The EU is anything but fair. It is autocratic (far more so than Westminster) and largely wasteful of the money it leeches from the wealthy members. The major contributors do not get a fair deal. To make things worse, it has now become evident that it will be virtually impossible to tell them that enough's enough, we want to do it our way.

    The past couple of years, we have driven right down through the centre of Spain on the most incredibly engineered motorways. Viaducts, tunnels, superb surfaces and all paid for by EU money and largely toll free. The problem mentioned elsewhere about Brynglas is nothing compared to what has been achieved throughout Spain and Portugal. If the EU saw fit, then the financing and expertise for South Wales to address that issue could have been made available years ago. I think it naive to expect anything different if Scotland or Wales were independent members, as they would have to stand behind the likes of Latvia in the queue for handouts.

    The fact is that the EU wants to give the UK nothing and that is why I believe our country as a whole should continue to tell Brussels where to stick it.

    Well there's an awful lot of the 54 retweets, if you want to be picky.

    There's no one on there crying over squashed tadpoles...
