Then you appear unable to read - I suggest you go back to the thread in question and look at those calling me a liar - then you can come back here and apologise.

Damn right it always been the decent English (or British, depending) who have always wanted unity. On this centenary of Amritsar I am reading an account of Udham Singh, and his assassination of O'Dwyer after the event. It was the decent British of O'Dwyer and Dyer who just wanted unity and did what it takes to stop the division. I recommend "The Patient Assassin" by Anita Anand, this seems as good a place as any.

Being half English and half Welsh I have wondered why the Flag of St George is a sign of my White Nationalism/Bigotery etc etc but the St David is perfectly fine.

1. It isn't, but if it is perceived by some that your St Georges flag is so, then stop doing whatever it is you are doing with it.
2.Sounds a bit like why is there Gay Pride but not Straight Pride.

I have just reviewed the recent (£350 million) exchange & no one has actually accused you of lying - other than inviting you to differentiate between lying & disingenuity.

All this arose from your attempt to misinform & mislead.

One of my fishing partners is from Bristol; his father is English and his mother is from a small town in Wales. They went to visit her home town and on one of his walks he stopped in at the local pub. The old boys gathered together at their corner table eyed him suspiciously as he approached the bar but every stranger probably gets that treatment. When he asked the barman for a beer and they heard his accent, one of the men in the corner asked him where he was from. He replied "I'm from Bristol, but my mum is from here." The old guy smiled and said "Well you're alright then Boyo, you're only half a bastard!" As we fished we then had a conversation about the English and their position as oppressors.
Craig Ferguson was either on his talk show or visiting someone else's and told of getting into a fight in a bar in Scotland. As it progressed from a real or perceived insult to argument to angry shouting he yelled "Let's go, I'll kill you, you English bastard!" The other man retorts "Oh yeah, you're going to get it now you English bastard!" Craig explains "Of course, neither of us is English, but it helps get the blood up."

25 years ago I worked for a Company with its head office in Scotland, which I had to visit most weeks, staying overnight in a super, small hotel on the edge of town.

One night I was chatting with the proprietor & I suggested that I might pop into town that evening. He replied that he had undertaken to my Boss to "look after me" and that he would not allow me to go into town - as I am English!

My sister.

She is super conservative and religious so total opposite of me, but she is always posting and complaining about welfare and government programs, when she herself benefitted from those programs...makes no sense.

She lives in AZ now and post on an article on FB about Californian's moving to AZ, "people in California should stay there" um hello your from California....

No wonder we barely speak lol
