A Plague on Both your Houses

"A plague on both your houses" - Romeo and Juliet : William Shakespeare

Both Labour and Conservative governments have upheld the Union at the expense of Scotland and Wales. Even now, in the present climate, they drag their feet on devolution and decry the cause of independence. They want to adopt Welshness by declaring that they are Welsh Labour and Welsh Conservative, but they are nothing of the sort. They are English (British) parties masquerading as Welsh, while at the same time proclaiming their "Britishness" and their belief in the Union, which has outlived its sell-by date. The Liberal Democrats, to their shame, are little better in their continued support for the Union, and their reluctance to join the popular movement towards independence. We have seen, more and more, Labour and Independent councillors in alliance, even Labourites and Conservatives in alliance, for the reason that they are both in support of the Union, and fear the tide which is leading us to the proclamation of an independent nation. Scotland leads the way, in popular support and distrust of Labour, and Wales is not far behind, as events will prove.

Here is a crazy point: language should first and foremost be about communication, i dont care if we all speak English or Welsh just one please, anymore distinction making is bad for the world. Also how about England change its name to Wales, what will you do then, then you will see what a hollow load of garbage patriotism is.
