Not racist. Just another example of a non-productive parasite with an over-inflated sense of his own importance demonstrating his own ignorance and insecurity. I stopped worrying about them years ago.

I' m more irritated by the Wels names for places In Pembrokeshire that are resolutely English-named (albeit a mix of 11th century Flemish and Elizabethan English. Milford Haven for example is now Aberdaugleddau, which is inaccurate at several levels...

Ynys Mon AM Rhun ap Iorwerth said the column was "prejudicial poison" which would not be acceptable if it referred to any other religion, race or people.������������

That can't be a real name, even in Wales...:ladybags:

Edit - from one of the tweets below:

Someone called Rod Liddle says in the Sunday Times that 'Welsh has no real vowels'. 'Ignorant' has 3 vowels. 'Ignorant' in Welsh is 'anwybodus' and has 5.

No mate, it might be 5 syllables, but still only 3 vowels.

To be fair, I had to check to see if that book was real. I love the use of giving it an old feel.

QED. You English really ought to learn a little more about your country...

Ynys Mon is the original name of Anglesey (another English-enforced name...). AM is "Assmebly Member". Rhun is an old Welsh forename and "ap Iowerth" is "the son of Iowerth" in the same way that MacTavish is the son of Tavish.

No mate, it might be 5 syllables, but still only 3 vowels.No mate. Welsh has 7 vowels. a,e,i,o,u,w and y. It's different language from English; the letters have different sounds. Just as as in German, "w" is pronounced "vee", or in French "h" isn't even pronounced.

What's parochial idiot in Welsh? :ohwell

Why is Wales so hilly? They took so much land from the English, they had to put it somewhere. :igmc:

I doubt Ynys Môn is the original name or even the original proto-Welsh name. It is the modern. Welsh name. We know the Latin name was Mona so we can assume the indigenous name in the first century was similar.

In my experience "Twat" would probably cover it. "Twmffat parochial" at a push, but i'd lean towards the former.

Fun fact - Ynys Mon is also known as 'mam cymru', or mother of wales. On account that it looks (ever so slightly) like a head.

It's not a Rorschach test, you can say it looks like a disembodied woman's head if you like.

Thanks for the Welsh lesson chaps, I'm sure it'll be extremely useful, er...never. :wink

Almost certainly true, since most English have only a limited understanding of the meaning of heritage. If you want to waste an hour or two, try to translate "Hwyl" into English... :tongue

However, we may have educated one or two to think a little harder before blithely slagging off something they don't understand :happy

Welsh for oven is 'poppy' - and Welsh for microwave oven is 'popty-ping' - classic!

At current clientco lift goes all American - 'Car D', the ones at DVLA Morriston would go all 'Flwr Pedwan' or something which I think was 'Fourteenth Floor'

Wales is also a unit of measurement

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unusual_units_of_measurement#Wales


Equal to 20,779 km2 (8,023 sq mi), the country of Wales is used in phrases such as "an area the size of Wales" or "twice the area of Wales".[25][26] England is 6.275 times the size of Wales, and Scotland is roughly four times the size of Wales. Ireland is four times larger than Wales, and France is about twenty-five times larger.

In older British and Commonwealth atlases, it was common to show a known area at the same scale, and the usual area to show was either Wales for smaller scales, or Great Britain for larger areas.[citation needed]

The British comedy show The Eleven O'Clock Show parodied the use of this measurement, by introducing a news article about an earthquake in Wales, stating that an area the size of Wales was affected. The Radio 4 programme More or Less introduced the idea of "kilowales" – an area 1,000 times the size of Wales. The Register introduced the nanowales (20.78 m2).[27]

The measurement has been adopted by rainforest conservation charity Size of Wales, aiming to conserve an area of rainforest equating to the area of Wales. On 1 March 2013, the charity announced that they had succeeded[28] in conserving an area of rainforest the size of Wales and will continue to operate to sustain and increase the protected area.[29]

You're not wrong mate.

I've come back across that Welsh bridge a few times with bandy legs end empty bollocks.

Whole load of us went up to Tenby once for my mate Pete's stag do. I was the best man and to cut a long story short I got handcuffed to this Welsh bird and found myself still chained to her when I had to pop to the bogs for a Neville.

Anyway, she gave me a blowjob and the smirk I had on my face when I came back into the pub must of said it all as this massive cheer went up from all the lads.

I’m not welsh but I grew up watching welsh bbc programming in the afternoon when wagging off school. Always dreamt of a converted barn/farmhouse in North Wales! And I’m still after a copy of ‘Morgan’s Boy’....
