Well I'm voting with the majority for Wales to remain part of the UK. That's my right to self-determination in democracy.

The only domination we are in danger of is of extremist nationalists like yourself.

There is nothing extreme in wanting the best for your country.
You may be in the majority but, then again, you may not, and increasingly not.

Perhaps the inclusion of Afghanistan and Iraq?
Palestine?
If not occupation, then those three countries are certainly being oppressed, and in no uncertain terms.

At least if Wales was independent, we wouldn`t have to pay for an airforce and an army, to invade far-off places with lots of oil. Though no doubt, some politicians might dream of commanding mighty armies.
