Welsh were on the list; 3,963 of you apparently.

Hardly surprising there are more ethnicities than countries is it

159 Cornish
87 Gypsies
33 Gaelic
24 Shetland Islanders
6 Orkney Islanders

and more worrying 225 that didn't know.

It's funny to think about this in respect to the UK in which has about half the rate per capita yet spends a lot more time "worrying about immigrants" (in the Daily Mail sense of the term).

Maybe we should join the EU?

Love leeks, what use in coal in Chch? daffs have all gone now, but what the hell I can now support the AB's and no one here has accused me of 'stealing a leg of beef'
p.s when we moved into this house there was a coal bunker full of the stuff and it took me ages to get rid of it!
