Of course if it does go-ahead, the likes of Shaunbhoy and Incognito will have to 'feck off home' as they'll need visas to come into England.

Nice and minimalist.

Do we have room to stick the dragon in with that empty space? Maybe behind the cross like it's behind bars symbolising the fact we'll never let them escape?

If we are changing we might as well get rid of the Saint Patrick's Saltire and just stick with the Red Hand of Ulster on St George's Cross as its not all Ireland anymore just the North

No. The Welsh flag is a relatively recent marketing construct and has no historical presence. Besides which, Wales is actually part of England, like Cornwall or Yorkshire, so it is covered by the cross of St George.

I think you'll find the dragon has been associated with Wales for centuries

If it's recent or ancient would be immaterial if we were making a NEW flag.

With this sort of flag Wales would want to be independent also.

Maybe but we can't go cluttering up our flag with symbols from every county, region and principality of England. The Welsh are covered by the Cross of St George and should be proud of it.

No but it's based on human to sheep ratio not area

But we need something to symbolize our relationship with industry, you know, spinning mills. that sort of thing.

Well if it is likely to be designed embracing the likes of you as a modern Englishman, better put a large yellow stripe down the back.

The union jack really rattles my cage there is no welsh representation on there at all hmph

I believe in 2007 Margert Hodge tabled a debate about including the dragon or some other emblem of Wales on the flag. It was agreed that this should happen but the size of this was directly proportional to the Welsh input in the union.

A dragon about the size of a 20p piece was subsequently added to all Union flags but due to a design fault it was placed in exactly the same place as the hole that is punched out to allow the flag to be raise on a flag pole. This hole being approximately the size of a 20p piece.

So OP, your statement isn't completely true....:D

You're not naive enough to believe Wales will ever be able able to stand on it's own two feet are you?

Does Wales have any kind of industry to rival Scotland's booze and beef, or is it just a mish-mash of random stuff?

Maybe N.I. could join with Eire if they leave us? That would be great fun.

Not to my knowledge, in my view people are all to concerned with what they're due rather than getting out there and making opportunities for themselves. The cities are ok it's just deep in the valleys where they are so insular about it all

Public sector workers

Oxymoron.

The Spartan
16th January 2012, 16:04

I think it's even higher than that.

Salaries are 18% higher in the Public Sector, mostly because there's very little private sector left.

Sounds about right and they've the cheek to think of striking again, Civil Serpents can't believe I actually used to be one

There must be something of the "evolution in action" thingie about some of this.

In the old days, most reasonably intelligent parents didn't want their boys to work down the pits like dad did, they wanted them to become teachers, or whatever.

So, with that selection pressure......they went on to become Equal Opportunities Inspectors and LGBT Outreach Workers.

Funny though, I always thought 'Inreach' Worker would be a better career for a lesbian.
