GUEST,Lucius BS: CAmpaign to Restore England (46) RE: BS: CAmpaign to Restore England 14 Dec 06


Hi Growler

It's quite simple. We all used to speak Welsh (except when the very occasional real italian roman turned up to check progress on tax gathering). When the romans let us go, those of us who were really attached to our own valleys decided to go with the flow as it were and blend in with whatever mix of culture future waves of invasion and imigration might yield. The diehards who wanted to stay welsh buggered off to the western desert now known as Wales.

Nearly fifteen hundred years later we're still here, blending in with the current crop of "offcumduns" and humouring them by going along with their particular cutural whims. Underneath we're still what we always were and privately enjoying the beauty of our valleys hills and moors (and music).

Lucius
