Does that really matter? Wales is just a bump on the side of England in any case.

 

Yes, and the Vatican is just a suburb of Rome. And Gibraltar is just any old bit of Spain.

Yeah, Wales is practically just another English county. Not a proper country like Scotland.

Wales isn't a country, it's a principality.

That's a bit harsh.

 

Especially as the Welsh has accorded your home city of Gloucester with the privilege of having its own Welsh name ... Caerloyw. I don't speak Welsh but I am advised it translates as Settlement of the Silver Caravans.

On the contrary, that phrase indicates it's the principal country in Britain.

You lot in East Wales should be grateful we let you 'orrible Saxon types squat in our outlying regions. :P

 my problem with the welsh is the massive inferiority complex they have.

After the last 6 nations many of them seem to have shaken that off and gone too far the other way. Listening to some of them you would think the 2015 RWC was a sure thing for the men in Red....quickly forgetting recent losses to Samoa, Ireland and most SH teams (sorry Craig I am not trying to derail the thread with a RU discussion...honest Guv).

It's not a complex.

No, we have to keep everything simple so that the English can understand it.

Isn't David a Celtic name, normally rendered in Welsh as Dafydd?

 

I was in St David's last month on the tip of Pembrokeshire, and St David's Cathedral is well worth a visit.

No, it's a Hebrew name taken from the Bible. Think about King David of Israel.

 

David is the English form, Dafydd is the Welsh form.
