    How enterprising. I suspect that the leek munching, sheep shaggers have a case of sour grapes due the fact that the Jock's have bigged up their history a bit and as a consequence the Americans and Japanese flock in to spend their dough.

    Aparently golf originated in Holland and there is a variety of other shit that we have nicked over the centuries.

    I will smile as I often walk past the statue and see hoards of tourist taking photos and carrying bags full of shortbread.

    Don't worry once we're finished robbing your cultural heritage we'll leave you lot with Morris Dancing and Kriss Akabusi, AWOOGA!
     
  6. The man isn't Welsh you daft prick, he's Swedish. He is a rheumatology lecturer at Cardiff University School of Medicine and I know him well. He is a good bloke but he has a bit of an obsession about man's relationship with dogs that sets him apart a bit; I believe he's had books published about the subject. Besides, the Welsh wouldn't have the gall to criticize since they pulled exactly the same sort of scam with that Gelert nonsense.

  8. Aw, I really hurt your feelings, didn't I? I tried living in Scotland and it was OK for a while but I fancied somewhere more civilised. :wink:

    I have to admit the only time I've been to Wales is when I've been forced to by the RN.

    I wasn't impressed!!!
     
  10. What's the matter? Did the Welsh see right through you? They're perspicacious that way.
    I've been here 26 years and have enjoyed every second. I must admit it's good to get home once in a while, though.
