Another poser.



So, who are this lot?

Is it a picture from a diversity training manual? No. Give up? Well it's obvious dear readers, this is the 'Welsh', according to Plaid Cymru.

Of course, Wales is nearly 98% white, but Plaid continue to be pointlessly obsessed with diversity. What's ironic about all this is that if Plaid took more of an interest in the majority population, they wouldn't actually have to ask what the Welsh want!

But, let us come to this question and the responses given by the contributors. What does Wales want? Well a new football team would be nice! But, jesting aside, the contributors to the site show that there are many Welsh people who have a far greater understanding of the problems facing Wales, than their alleged 'party'. And, unsurprisingly, Eid festivals are not at the top of the list.

There are numerous posts referring to Plaid's frankly futile quest to move further and further to the left. The reason for that policy is simple. Their 1999 election results, in which they made significant gains in Labour heartlands, went to their heads. More socialism is the key to victory, was their erroneous conclusion. Recently, those ex-Labour votes, have evaporated, and Plaid has been left with egg on its face.

So, there are two paths avaliable to Plaid. A new one, which consists of moderation, nationalism, capitalism, alternative energy generation, the return of industry and the current population put first. The other, current one, consists of more socialism, anti-Englishness, multiculturalism, EU aid, rampant welfarism, massive public sector spending and endless 'regeneration projects', which are useless without high-quality industry.

Of course, they will continue to follow the second path and they will continue to be soundly beaten by Labour, after all isn't that what the Welsh are supposed to do - lose and lament?

It's a bit of a worry with the way the union is seemingly being undermined. Just imagine them in charge of an entire economy, of the laws of the land and of, heaven forbid, border controls!

Talking realistically, Scotland and Wales would probably not survive independence. Scotland alone would be poorer than Venezuela if it chose to go on its own.

Any political party that wants independence for their Home Nation are stuck centuries in the past. No party is lying (shock) when it says that the Union brings benefits to all of the Home Nations.

They look at the example of Ireland and conclude that EU membership and ergo aid, has led to the Irish renaissance.

The real reasons are more complicated, but most important of all has to be their tax policies. Sadly, the unreformed socialists in Wales don't understand that.
