'To find 'Commonality', and therefore Unity within the term 'British', Between the Historic Majority Oppressor and their Minority Oppressed (Master & Servant?), would be Impossible at this Stage'?

WHAT IS ‘BRITISHNESS’?
"Britain" or "Britishness" Needs to be Clarified that it is just Locating the people living on the Island of Britain in General, and not Defining these people's Nationalities, or their Country as one Homogeneous Group. As the UK or GB is a Sovereign State, Not a Nation or a Country, a Construct promoted from London who control the UK Media, Law and Politics, which is why, in its present form, it can never be an Identity, as you Cannot have an Identity based on a Singular Homogenous UK Nationality, Ethnicity, History, Language or Culture that does Not Exist, as the UK is a Political Union as a Sovereign State, not a Cultural Annexation to Homogenise all UK Nations into One, the UK is a Union of Nations not an Incorporation of Nations! Where there can be no Commonality between the Majority Powerful, and the Minority Powerless, with no effective mechanisms to even try to attempt to Balance that out at UK Level, for Example, due to 533 out of 650 UK (English) Parliament MP's representing England, so are Not treated Equally (such as in the EU with their EU Nations Veto Vote on key areas, which could be implemented in the UK with a UK Nations Veto Vote version but made more Specific to the UK, to Clarify the UK Nations Share UK Sovereignty as a UK Sovereign State is Not only England's), and for London to suggest that because Wales now has limited Devolution (since 1997) that having 533 English MP's out of a Total of 650 UK Parliament MP's (40 for Wales, 59 for Scotland & 18 for Northern Ireland), within a UK Parliament Majority Vote system, does not matter, is a 'Nonsense', as Devolution has No Power over UK Wide Policy Making! As England remain the Master, and Wales and Scotland remain Subservient on the island of Britain, so Cannot be One Equal Homogenous Group, all the Same anyway. Meaning that any decisions from London are decisions by the English, not the UK or Britain as a Whole, as the Celtic Nations do Not have an Equal say in the UK decision making process within the UK (English) Parliament, (an English Parliament because all the other Celtic UK Nations are Vastly Outnumbered so making them largely Irrelevant, a Token gesture) or then on UK International Foreign Policy for Example going to War, or UK Policy on Immigration, because of the Obvious Number Differentials, when Voting within a Majority Vote System, in the UK (English) Parliament on UK Wide Laws and Policy, which is Clearly Stacked in England's Favour, by London. To Clarify, their are Two Different overall Meanings, Aims and Objectives of Nationalism Within Britain, there is a Minority Celtic Nationalism looking for Greater Equality to Level Up, and failing that Independence, and a Majority English Nationalism (never mentioned on the London Media) seeking to Maintain long standing Inequalities but under the Guise of Unionism, although a genuine Unionist would Actively seek Equality and Fairness among UK Nations not work against it for the benefit of their own UK Nation, the definition of Nationalism, and of course, if as London say, Britain is One Nation then there could be No Nationalism within Britain as there is said to be No different Nations with Britishness, yet Nationalism is also said by London to be the greatest threat to the UK Union, who never mention English Nationalism the greatest threat of all as they have the most Power and Influence to Favour their Own UK Nation, and in doing so inspire greater Nationalism from the Celtic Nations, who apparently according to London do not Exist within their term of British as One People and One Nationality?
Currently the term "British" is Defined by London through the Oxford English Dictionary, as, "British", 'relating to Great Britain or the United Kingdom, or to its people or language', as British is clearly referred to, overall, in the singular and not the plural, suggesting One people, Nationality, and Language, and obviously there is also more than the one Language of English in the Nations of the UK, so it Needs to be Defined as "British", 'the people inhabiting the island of Great Britain, within three distinct nationalities and countries: England, Scotland and Wales', to recognise all the people's genuine Nationalities on the Island of Britain, the UK is the term that incorporates Northern Ireland who are Geographically Located on the Island of Ireland. As with this new firm Definition of Britishness you can still then be British and English, or Scottish or Welsh, and Not have to replace your UK Nationality with the made up Nationality of British, that clearly does Not exist as an actual Nation. The recognised defined Nations on the Island of Britain are England, Scotland and Wales, you cannot then just simply invent another wider Nation made up of three already existing internationally recognised Nations, otherwise those recognised Nations then just become regions of the so called wider Nation, not simply a Sovereign Political Union State of Nations called the UK, if you want to identify a person on the Island of Britain by Nationality or Country just simply call them by their UK Nationality, English, Scottish or Welsh, all inhabiting the Island called Britain!! As Britishness then just becomes an Empty Political term Unilaterally thrust onto the Celtic Nations on the Island of Britain by London, who Control the Mainstream UK Media, and therefore Narrative, so it cannot be Challenged, to try to Incorporate the Celtic Nations Psychologically and Legally into the English Empire (obviously London also make UK Law in the so called UK parliament) an English Empire, although much reduced, that still clearly exists to this day. This is not Divisive, it is just Fact, you Cannot just Erase a Person's Intrinsic Cultural and Historical UK Nationality, and even Ethnicity (Celtic), and Replace it with a made up 'Phantom Nationality' (to Clarify, 'British Citizenship', is a UK Political & Legal Construct and is set in London with its 533 English MPs, and a person's 'Nationality', so place of Birth, are Two Totally Different Meanings & Concepts) with a vague Definition of that so called Nationality, of London's Choosing (Britishness), to try to give the false impression of One Homogenous Nation, Country and even Ethnicity, all speaking just the One indigenous Language of English, with a Pretend Equal power to make choices at UK wide level with very Limited Token Celtic MPs? As without a Definition of Britshness that identifies and acknowledges the Celtic Nations the term British becomes an 'Hegemony' term, which is to say, leadership or dominance especially by one state or social group over another, who get to decide what Britshness means Unilaterally, which usually implies just English. Indeed, if you Define British as One Homogenous Group to the International Community then how can International or even Domestic Law that protect Racial and National rights apply to the Celtic Nations if they are Not Defined as actual Nations in their own right, but just as an Homogenous group called British?
Even though Wales has always been a country in its own right, Wales was officially recognised as a country in December 2011 by the influential International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), and as a Nation is defined by the UN as a cultural unit of a collection of people with a shared values, ethnicity, history, language etc, Wales fits this criteria. So Wales is also a Nation, as further Evidenced by their Internationally Recognised National Sporting Teams, for Example. So either London's Unilateral Definition of Britishness, and therefore by implication Britain, as One Nation and Country is wrong (sovereignty in London makes the UK as a whole a state in political terms, not a country or nation with just one ethnicity, culture, history or language), or the rest of the world, and International community, are wrong in saying that Wales is a separate Country and Nation supported by all the Evidence. I think even the most simple minded of people might have to conclude that the rest of the world is right. To Clarify, Wales was a Nation and Country with its own Government before it was Officially Fully Annexed by London in The Laws of Wales Act 1536 &1542 by Henry VIII, (and Initially Conquered in the 13th Century) although London have been calling this the '1536 Act of Union' to try to Imply Consent and not Annexation. If you were wondering, when a Country had been Annexed Previous to the UN Laws in 1945 it still comes under the new UN Law to prevent Annexation, for Example, Hawaii Annexed by the USA in 1898 but allowed a Referendum in 1959 because of the UN Laws Banning continued Annexation and so preventing Self-determination. To Clarify, Wales has always been a Nation and Country, that was Conquered through Threat and Force, and also Not just a State, Province or Region, with an Historic Distinct English and Welsh border, Offa's Dyke built in 785 AD Defining the Two Nations Territorial Boundaries, with Hadrian's Wall to the North Defining Scotland from England. Indeed, London are now trying to use many words other than the Legally Loaded word of Annexation when it comes to Welsh Annexation such as the word "Incorporation" (the inclusion of something as part of a whole), but this does not mention Consent, if I Unilaterally incorporate something as my own by Force, or Coercion (England had already Conquered Wales), or by any other means, I must first have the permission of the owner, otherwise it is stealing, and incidentally, when Russia Annexed the Crimea (2014) I did not hear London mentioning the word "Incorporation", only the Legal Charter term of "Annexation". Although the Crimea is just a Region of the Wider Ukraine Nation so any Annexation Needs to be Voted for by the Whole of the Ukrainian Nation's people by UN Law, which does Not apply to Wales inside the UK as an Internationally Recognised Nation (such as Scotland for Example) but still Wales has never been allowed a Referendum by London and its been almost 500 years now. How can you Unilaterally say the term "British", as one Homogenous group of people, without even any Democratic Consent from all the Nations within that so called term, that's like me stealing your car and then calling it mine, and when asked for permission to have the car, I say, 'I was given it as a gift by the owner', then in the absence of being able to provide any official Consent, when asked for any specific permission again from the owner, I say, 'well I've been driving it for years now so it must be mine'!!
Obviously Wales has No Independent Media so Cannot Voice an Unimpeded Opinion so would appear Silent, although the Resistance to English (London) attack, and Numerous Uprisings by the Welsh to English Domination since being Conquered (13th century) and Officially Annexed (16th century), Demonstrations in Prince Charles investiture in 1969, and the ongoing calls for independence, or at least a Referendum of Consent, by Plaid Cymru and Yes Cymru, along with many recent opinion polls, as some Examples, breaks that apparent media imposed silence. And of course the Two Main Political Parties in Wales are Both London Parties, backed up by the London Media, a System in Wales Created by London. Yet even Wales and Scotland as fellow Celtic Nations would not have the Brass Neck to run for Election in each others Country, as it would be seen as stepping on each others toes, and interfering with their internal Politics. Such a Tangled Web that has been Woven, but always to the Advantage of London, although a UK Nations Veto Vote Specific to the UK could Untangle this Particular Web, and even save the Union.
As British often refers to, or implies English, but can then be used by London to also imply the whole of the Island of Britain, as well as even then the UK, which is where the innate Confusion occurs. As London seem to want Britishness to mean many things, depending on their narrative or objective at the time, for Example, the English National Football Team as a so called British team, but then Great Britain as a National Team in the Olympics also then as a so called British team, as Confusing Examples, both orchestrated from London (for Example London unilaterally created the English FA in 1863, so by definition the other Celtic nations had to then form their own football associations after that, and obviously with the Olympics London wanted more medal prospects to represent a Britain on the world stage, going against Larger nations on the medal table, so then unilaterally incorporated the Celtic Nations as well). As London do have the Power to Set a Firm Definition of Britishness, acknowledging the separate internationally recognised Nationalities within the term Britshness, if they so wish.
Another Example of the confusion of the term Britishness and by association Britain (even though we know that Britain means just the Geographic Island of Britain) due to a lack of a Defined Definition of Britishness is the current term of 'Levelling up the Country', which Country do London mean? Considering that London control the whole of the UK's purse strings and gets to decide where money is spent or not, so will tend to prioritise England's NEEDS over any other UK Nations, as Demonstrated with the Under-Development of Wales and Scotland, to clarify Barnett Consequentials only provide a small Fraction of any money required, and are not based on Celtic Nations NEED. Do London mean just England, North and South (for Example HS2 connecting South to North of England at a cost of £107 Billon so far)? Or is it the other creation from London of Britain as a so called Country? Or even then the extended term of the UK, also as a so called Country, involving Northern Ireland, which Country or Countries is meant to be Levelled Up? But as the 'Country' could mean many things by London's loose Definition of Britishness, then the term "British" can be permanently left open to manipulation from London, through their 'Politician's and Media', by constantly playing within the grey area's created through such a vague Oxford English Dictionary Definition (considered the Authority on the English Language), of the term British, or Britishness. As London cannot say "Britain" or "British" but then only seriously Develop England, who are already the most Developed Nation in the UK!
However, notice how quickly London focus on the Celtic Nations Specific Nationality when they try to undermine their Confidence to challenge the Status Quo, and keep them in their place, by specifically implying that only Welsh people as a Nationality engage in Bestiality, and only Irish people as a Nationality are Stupid, along with only Scottish people as a Nationality as Dour, Miserable Alcoholics, but yet again No set Repeated Recognised slander term for England, or Britain, as Britain is deemed as primarily England by London. So for Example, using the term Britain as a one Homogenous group, or even Nation, to Hide London Orchestrated crimes such Colonialism and Slavery, suggesting it is the crime of Britain as a whole and not specifically England (London) who Specifically Created and Managed their brand of Colonialism and Industrialised Slavery. But then become acutely aware of the Celtic NationsNationalities when it comes time to demean or Manipulate the Celtic Nations to Bolster Anglo-Saxon Englishness, by then identifying people outside of 'their own' deemed as a threat to their overall UK power, favour and Influence, such as for Example being acutely aware of making sure that there are 533 English MP's in the UK (English) Parliament with only 117 MP's from the other three individual Celtic Nations, for Example, Clearly based on UK Nationality, I am pretty sure that England did not have 533 MP's in the UK Parliament by Accident, obviously by Design, and "coincidently" who gets to decide the UK Parliament structure, London and England. So again acknowledging the individual Nations within the UK when it Benefits London, but ignoring them when it does Not. All of which are Easily Evidenced and Obvious.
Don't get me wrong I do not expect London to all of a sudden introduce a Real Democracy in the UK, or Treat the Celtic Nations with Equality and Respect, or even Allow Wales and Scotland a Free Unimpeded Independent Mainstream Media, any time soon, if ever, why would they, when they have all the ongoing advantages? But what I do expect is that the international community will become increasingly aware of these subtle Blocks to Democracy and Free Speech of the Celtic Nations particularly on the island of Britain (such as the British Media controlled from London), and start applying pressure, as well as through Documentary makers or News coverage, from other countries for Example, outside of the London Media UK control highlighting these obvious, if subtle and well hidden abuses, with for Example something as Easy to Evidence as Wales Never being allowed an independence referendum, and London blocking a second independence referendum for Scotland now called for by the Elected Scottish government because of the Material Change of Brexit (indeed how can you have a Fair Referendum in the first place if your Opponent, in London, Owns all the Mainstream Media?), making a so called Britain quite Obviously a Forced Coalition of Nations Without Democratic Consent from All the Nations that make up the term Great Britain, or Britain, with England (London) Blocking any Democratic avenue to Exit that Coalition.
To Clarify, where you were Born Decides your Nationality, and in Great Britain you would be Born in one of three recognised Nations, meaning your base ethnicity would be either Celtic or Anglo-Saxon, ethnicity beyond that would be your Ancestry or Heritage. The word nationality refers to where you are born—a place of birth—whereas citizenship is granted by a government of a country when certain legal requirements are met. In many ways, citizenship can be seen as a political status because it indicates which country recognizes you as a citizen, even though Britain is not a country, just the Island that the three recognised countries of England, Scotland and Wales inhabit, although London have autonomy to make their own legal definitions even though, when regarding Nationality, they are clearly not based in Fact. England is not recognised as an independent country because its sovereignty encompasses all of the UK, the Celtic Nations are not recognised as independent countries because their sovereignty (independence) has been relocated to London England, and by all accounts they will not let it go, even in a so called Democratic Society? So Why is there such determination from London to keep hold of the Celtic nations independence (sovereignty), well because the way they gained the independence of the Celtic Nations could never happen again due to international law, so when they lose it it will be lost for good, with no way of getting it back!
‘What is Britishness’?.....
How can you Define a "Nation's" Characteristics of a "Nation" that does Not physically exist? Great Britain, also known simply as Britain, is a Geographic term to Identify and generally Locate the Countries and Nations of Scotland, Wales and England, situated on the same island called Britain, in Northern Europe, with different Cultures, Indigenous Languages, Histories, Ethnicities and Powerbases, to Clarify, Britain (or the UK) is NOT One Singular Country or Nation!! To Deny this Fact is to Deny the Nationhood, History, Culture, Language and Ethnicity of all the Nations and Countries on the Island of Britain, and also to Dilute the Identity and specific Culture of all the UK Nations, including to some extent England, although as British generally means English the kudos of owning the Celtic nations promotes their brand. However, it is possible to have strong different Cultural Identities, but still come together as a Consenting Union (of course this must Democratically Confirmed first), without the Fear from London that this might support Independence for the Celtic Nations, but coercing English Culture into a so called "British Culture" using London's Control of the British Media (which also makes the Democratic process Biased), means no firm Cultural Identity at all, only the Identity of England trying to maintain their Historical hold on their previously Conquered and/or Subdued Celtic Nations, apparently by any means necessary, which is there for all the World to see. In a World that has become significantly smaller due to New Technologies, but even this diminishes English Culture to some extent, although London own the the UK Media so there Culture can be allowed to Flourish. This 'any means necessary' approach from London, Evidenced by Historically preventing any form of Independence Vote for Wales, and blocking a second Independence referendum for Scotland, even though there has been a 'Material Change in Circumstances' with Brexit, a Power afforded to London, by London, due to England still holding Sovereignty, from Centuries ago, and their 533 English MP's in the UK (English) Parliament, over the Vastly Outnumbered Minority Celtic Nations, as easily Evidenced examples of the ongoing Denial of Democratic Consent, from London, on the Island of Britain.
'Britishness is a state or quality of being British, of embodying British Characteristics' (Oxford Dictionary, first line of Wikipedia). But unless you can Define the term 'British' (which just saying the term 'British' does not do), how can you then embody the 'Characteristics' of being 'British' as a people, with Three different Nations on the Island of Britain? Particularly as a Culture(that Defines Characteristics) is Defined by its Arts, Literature and Media, avenues Celtic people have little or no access to in the UK (predominantly influenced by England, the main central Political, Media and Social UK Power). The Oxford English Dictionary Definition of 'Culture', 'the Arts and other Manifestations of Human Intellectual Achievement Regarded Collectively', as Culture and History Defines a Nation's 'Social Attitude', but on the Island of Britain the Focus is mainly specifically on the Culture of England, and not as the Collective of Nations that Occupy the Island of Britain. To Clarify, the term 'Britain' has never been democratically voted as a Brand name for the countries on the Island of Britain, just imposed on them by London. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a sovereign state, with Sovereignty based in London, composed of four constituent countries that extends its sovereignty over a number of associated territories. Strictly speaking, a country is not necessarily the same thing as a sovereign state, they are academically Distinct from each other, as opposed to being used as Generalised and Interchangeable terms, a Confusion perpetuated from London, as some sovereign states (including the UK) that maybe defined as countries are actually subdivisions of a sovereign “composite kingdom", the Kingdom of the United Kingdom. To Clarify, The Montevideo Convention has four defining characteristics of a Country, although, anomalies are abound. However, it would unreasonable for London to use this 1930's convention (became Operative in December 1934), used for the America's (& Ironically includes a Good Neighbour Policy), to possibly call the UK or Britain a Country, as the Formation of the UK and Britain Vastly Predates this Convention.
Many people living in England predominantly say they are proud to be British, and (or) like being Connected to the Celtic nations, but without any Definition of what 'Britishness' as a Characteristic actually is, as "British" is a Vague Nebulous Geographic term, not a Cultural Characteristic or Nationality Identifier, as British does not exist as one Homogenous group of Peoples, how can you buy into an Identity if that so called collective identity does not exist as one people, you can buy into a collective identity as three distinct nations, cultures, histories and languages, but not as one homogenous group of people projected onto you, as if the UK nations histories, nationalities, race, ethnicities and languages never existed? Moreover, contrary to London insistence and even law makers in the UK (English) Parliament making Wales and Scotland fly a Union Jack Flag at their parliaments (2021), you cannot unify around the Union Jack as it does not represent a Nation it just represents the geographic island of Britain, and Wales do not have any representation on the Union Flag any way, it is just a London invention, representing a Nation that does Not Exist, with no consent or agreement from Welsh or Scottish people, or even the English people as a whole. This is not to say that there cannot be a Unifying of the separate Nations on the Island of Britain, but it will involve being fair from London, not just 'Simplistic Gimmicks' like flying a National Flag that No UK Nation Fully Recognises as they already have their Own Individual Nation's Flags. To Clarify, when I say the term Britain it is an invention from London, this is to say that the Roman term for Britain when they arrived was Britannia, this name then used by London to promote a mythical Nation and Country, mythical in that it does Not Exist, I have looked every where on the island of Britain and I still cannot find the Country or Nation of Britain any where, I can only find the three Nations and Countries that occupy the Island of Great Britain. To further Clarify, the term UK is a 'Political Term' due to Sovereignty being held in London after the three Kingdom Wars by Oliver Cromwell, just before the Act of Union was created by London in 1707, making the UK a Sovereign State which is described as, 'A sovereign state is a political entity that is represented by one centralized government that has sovereignty over a geographic area', it does not describe a Singular Nation or Country, they have totally separate Dictionary meanings, why, because they do not mean the same thing!? As it is possible to be proud of our own UK Nation and be proud of the collective as well, but saying Britain as just One Nation, appears to be an an attempt to Delete out UK Nations Identity, but primarily the Minority Celtic Nations, because Britain can also mean specifically England as they are the dominant and largest Nation in the UK. As Unity is about Acknowledging, Embracing and Celebrating the Differences within the UK Nations, be they Nationality, History, Culture or Ethnicity, Not trying to Pretend that they do not Exist!
As there is No Precise Definition of Britishness, it can be used interchangeably by London to fit their narrative as and when. This is why the term British needs a 'Precise Definition' that is Unambiguous which incorporates and acknowledges all 3 nations as recognised countries with different cultures, histories and languages, but located on the same Island, to provide clarity, so as not to continue the Confusion. Britishness is currently defined by London as mainly, 'the quality of being British or of having characteristics regarded as typically British', which is a non-statement, as what are the Characteristics of being British, within 3 Separate Nations and Countries, with 3 Separate Histories, Cultures and Languages, with the Majority Oppressor's Characteristics and History being Totally Different to the Minority Oppressed. The current Oxford Dictionary Definition of "British" is, 'relating to Great Britain or the United Kingdom, or to its people or language', instead of saying People's or Language's, the Plural, again Suggesting one people and only one language, within one culture and history, not even mentioning the individual UK Nations, deleting out Nationhood and trying to replace it with one British Nationality as a whole, again trying to define British as one Homogenous group, and not just a general term used to locate the people inhabiting the Island of Britain, the same as the terms European or Scandinavian that locates a group of people Geographically, but at least these terms do not try to define themselves a Nationality or as one Country. Imagine how insulted the European's or Scandinavian's would be if a central authority autonomously tried to call them one homogenous group of European's or Scandinavian's as one Nation and Nationality, rather than their individual Nationalities or Country, essentially trying to delete out their Historical National Identities, and replace them with a generic collective term. As Nationhood does not need sovereignty, it is the Common Cultural, Historical and Language bond within a set Territory, as Great Britain Defines the Island that the people of the Three Nations of Britain Inhabit, but "Britishness" tries to Define these People as one Nationality, Culture, Language and History inside one Nation.
Perhaps Britishness could be Clarified and Defined as, 'British', 'the people inhabiting the island of Great Britain, within three separate nationalities and countries: England, Scotland and Wales' (UK is the term used to also include Northern Ireland). Meaning that even Ex-pats from other countries (commonly referred to as Immigrants by the British Media) can be defined as British, due to residency for example, but within the 3 Nationalities and Countries present on the Island of Britain, this Definition would also be valid if any of the "British" Nations gained Independence, and even if you are English, Scottish or Welsh you can buy into Britishness without Sacrificing your own Nationality, Country or Identity. So, with this new Realistic Definition of 'Britishness' it can be bought into as a Collective Term, if required, that is Tangible and Evidenced, as opposed to the current Non-tangible term of "British" as One People and Nation that Conflicts with people's already established UK Nationality. So this Definition is working along side the UK Nationalities rather than trying to Replace of Compete with them, providing a Solid Unambiguous Meaning of British within its Own Free Unchallenged Space as the Collective term of the people Inhabiting the Island of Britain, the Islander's.
A Precise Definition of the term "British" Ensures that it Cannot be used to Mean or Imply Different things depending on Different scenarios, or the person(s) speaking, taking away any Grey Areas and the Opportunity for Misinterpretation or Confusion within those Grey Areas, which provides a Firm Solid Foundation, that allows the Identities of the three Nations Inhabiting the Island of Great Britain (obviously always mean Great Britain when I say Britain for the Pedantic out there) to Develop and Flourish Unimpeded. This does not mean that then they will see themselves as "Suddenly" Different and then want Independence from each other, as by Definition we are intrinsically Different anyway (Nationality, History, Culture and Language etc), we know and Accept this as a given, it just means that all the Nations on the Island of Britain are being Valued, and when you're being Valued within a Union it is kind of Difficult to argue against the Union? As it is Easily Evidenced that Britain is Not a Nation so it Cannot therefore be a Nationality, and you Cannot have 'Countries within a Country', as that would make them simply Regions of the so called wider Country. Just because it benefits London to use the term "British" to mean the Nationality or Country of the people living on the Island of Britain, as a result of their Rabid Insecurity of Separation or Independence, does not make it so. It's like in any Relationship, if you try to keep hold of someone through nefarious or underhand means they will naturally push away from you, but if you are relaxed and calm within the relationship, allowing your partner to Express themselves and be Valued for who they are, the Relationship is then more likely to Succeed. Indeed, when you try to Stifle a person's Nationality they become even more Nationalistic with the push back, as opposed to Embracing the Different Nationalities that then makes them feel Validated and Acknowledged, and not under Threat, so does not then need Defending or even Highlighting, therefore ironically achieving the same aim that London desires, but without the Manipulation, Cute Word Play or Social Engineering, that can Ultimately be easily Evidenced, and then adds more fuel to the Nationalistic fire. Particularly in these modern times with the Internet where information can be quickly verified, so the London Media does not have the UK in a Bubble anymore, as the World can now look in. Almost like an Abusive and Coercive Relationship being Exposed, the Abuser will always try to Deflect and keep things Secret but once it is Exposed and open to scrutiny there are Consequences, as you can't then put the Genie back in the Bottle, and carry on as Normal.
In stating that the term UK or Britain is not a Country or Nation is not about Division, it is about saying to London to 'Acknowledge and Embrace' the Different UK Nations, their Cultures, Celtic Ethnicity and Uniqueness, to openly Celebrate them UK Wide, which will Create a kinship between UK Nations, as opposed to London Constantly trying to Erase UK Nationhood by Spinning the terms Britain and the UK as one Homogenous Country or Nation, effectively trying to Delete out the UK Nations Nationhood, Histories, Ethnicity and Identity, and Replace it with Shallow Meaningless Collective Phrases that have No Substance or even Based in Reality, the Irony is that in Acknowledging and Celebrating the Differences in UK Nations, this will then Create a Substantive Solid Definition of a Britain, or the UK, as Four Strong Vibrant Nations all Valued and Respected as One Collective, not just as England and the others, a left over Legacy from the Past, as the UK is only as strong as its weakest link. As by 'Forcing Out' the UK Nations Identity, you Create Animosity towards London, but also Dilute and become Embarrassed to Celebrate, Openly Discuss and Embrace what it is to be English. I understand that you make decisions based on Fear that if the UK Celtic Nations are allowed to openly develop and explore separate Identities, and sense of self as confident Nations and Countries without being Mocked or Coerced, you feel that they may want independence, if left Unimpeded, as they may see themselves as more and more different to England, and you are hesitant to discuss Englishness for Fear of that being different to the Celtic Nations, and unearthing some Truths you would rather not acknowledge, but in any relationship that is how you move on, as the truth is that Hiding, Coercing and Pretending, when the internet means we all know the Truth anyway, is a destructive force in any relationship, as all relationships have to be based on Honesty, Warts and All. Indeed, the added Irony is that it is that Fear of losing the Celtic Nations that will result in London losing the Celtic Nations, as that further Ongoing Inherited Colonial Mindset from London, that the whole UK structure is built on, which then also provides that added Fear of losing Control, may just be 'Too Strong' for them to make the Necessary Modern Fundamental and Wholesale Changes Needed to save the Union.
To Clarify, where you were Born Decides your Nationality, and in Great Britain you would be Born in one of three Nations, ethnicity beyond that would be your Ancestry or Heritage, citizenship is the UK is imposed by London to mean the political term of the people on the Island of Britain, but not their Nationalities. Just because London unilaterally bring out the British Nationality Act 1981 for example, does not make it so, particularly when regarding passports as apparent evidence of a singular British Nationality. As Britain, therefore British, is not a Nationality, it is just the people living on the Island of Britain, with the British Passport just evidence that London have power and control through historical Sovereignty to implement such Acts, and impose a citizenship, and Not that British is a Nationality, or Britain is a Country, or even because the Olympics have a GB team, which is only because of London's previous influence, in the early beginnings of the modern Olympic movement, to try to enhance their associated Medal tally on the world stage against much larger Nations, China and the USA for example. Just because London unilaterally persist in saying it is with Words, does not make it so, Facts regarding a person's Nationality do not change just because you keep on repeating a different narrative. This is not Divisive it is just Fact, you Cannot just Erase a person's Nationality.
People may have many ideas or views of what Britishness means to them, this is because Britain does not exist as a solid fact, it is an idea, a vague theory, used by London to incorporate Wales and Scotland, some may say Culturally Annex, into England under one term Autonomously created and developed from London without the input of Wales or Scotland, as a Political invention, it has no substance, it has no form, almost like a projected Hologram, that is constantly projected as real and tangible, but under closer examination is easily found to be obviously non-existent within a Cultural, Country, Racial, Historical and National context, regardless of the 'Self-Determined' ineterpretations and reinterpretations from London, depending on what ever may fit their narrative at the time. As a result of Britishness having no definition it can be manipulated to suit London's narrative, to either mean 'England only' or 'England and the Celtic Nations' depending on the context of the conversation, but of course it has no precise Definition because you cannot Define something that does not Exist. Indeed, you Cannot have a 'British Nationalism' as Britain does Not physically Exist as a 'Nation' (or Country), or even as One Ethnicity, an Elementary School Child could point out this Obvious Fact, you must First have a Nation to be Nationalistic about, or an Actual Definitive Country to be 'Patriotic' Towards, unless of course London assume (or would Like) that all the Nations on the Geographical Island of Britain, the 'Island Landmass' (and the UK) are just the One Nation of England, as a way of expanding their land and people by simply using repeated 'Phraseology' and Wordplay, which seems pretty self-evident judging by the Language and Phrasing of the London Media and Politicians (saying this country, not countries, when referring to the UK or Britain for example). If many English people are saying "British" in terms of Geography, then their immediate Geography would be their situation in England (or Wales & Scotland), their Nation, which would also describe their direct Anglo-Saxon ethnicity, nationality, country, history and heritage? British cannot be a National Identity as Britain (or the UK) does Not Exist as a singular Nation(or Country), or as any Nation, regardless of the Historical and Constant 'Rebranding' effort from London to try to assimilate the Celtic Nations into their territory (apparently trying to make already Recognised International Countries and Nations just regions of England, you Cannot just Over Rule some else's Historical Nation and Country 'Status' by Rebranding them as a Whole, to Create another 'Country or Nation' called Great Britain, which Describes the Island 'Land Mass', but does Not Physically Exist as a Singular Nation, Race or Country), Controlled from London (Cultural Annexation). Why dilute your own specific Nationality with Different Celtic National Identities, Ethnicities, and Histories, unless the English are proud to be associated with the Overall good name of the Celtic nations as a Whole, but also want to distance themselves from their own English history, which would involve Colonialism and Empire directed from London, the Sovereign Power Base of the UK, the same Colonialism and Empire that has Subjugated the Celtic Nations? When an English person says British they seem to want to be the 'Historical Oppressor and the Oppressed at the Same Time' (the Powerful Vast Majority Group Manipulating the term British to their Best Advantage), saying Britishness Deletes out Centuries of ongoing Minority Celtic pain, specifically undertaken on the basis of their Celticness?
The term British as One Nation or Country is a Unilateral London Construct. WHY? Well it seems for three main reasons, the term British hides a multitude of London and therefore English sins, such as colonialism and the conquering and subjugation of the minority Celtic nations in the first place by the majority nation of England, then secondly, saying British as one homogenous group, nation and country, implies unity to some people in the UK and to the outside world, and the third reason is that if you delete out the Celtic nations nationality and ethnicity then there can be no abuse of these nations or ethnicities within domestic or international law, as they do not exist within London's Homogenous term of British. Currently the term "British" is Defined by London through their Oxford English Dictionary, as, "British", 'relating to Great Britain or the United Kingdom, or to its people or language'
Britishness, it is often suggested, is ultimately about shared values of tolerance, respect and fair play, a belief in freedom and democracy, but Colonialism and Subjugation of the Celtic Nations by London (which continues to this day) is the exact Opposite of these Characteristics, the Oppressor and the Oppressed would by Definition have Different Characteristics and Histories. To Clarify, the Oxford Dictionary Definition of 'Oppression' is, 'prolonged cruel or unjust treatment, or exercise of authority', the Cambridge Dictionary Definition of 'Oppression' is, 'a situation in which people are governed in an unfair and cruel way and prevented from having opportunities and freedom'. Although It does seem that London are very reluctant to Define Englishness as Defining Englishness as an Identity will then Define the other Celtic Nations Identities as something different, with different Histories (with the Commonality of all being Subjugated by England), meaning that England (London) cannot then Hide its past in the Homogeneous term of British. Britishness is not evolving or changing because there is no one nation that is Britain, the different UK nations may be changing and evolving in different ways, but not as one homogeneous group. This is why a firm modern definition of Britishness is required acknowledging all the Nations of the British isles Equally (including N.Ireland), but with Direct Contributions from all Celtic Nations as well, not just England or London (Using a Veto Vote to Decide the Final Definition), to prevent London from continuing to predominantly use the term British as a unilateral systemically enforced term by the majority powerful group (represented in London), as a method to Dilute or Hide any associated negative History, or even any current negativity, and provide the outward impression of a united front, even when there are no Celtic representatives in the room, due to London's overall Sovereignty, Brexit negotiations as an example. Moreover, so instead of the term "British" or "UK" this should be replaced with the term "London", when it refers to decisions made by London due to London's Sovereignty, a Sovereignty which allows London to make many decisions autonomous of the Celtic nations, particularly on the International Stage, to allow for accountability. So for example 'Britain's decision to cut the foreign aide budget', making London more accountable directly, which would mean a more thoughtful and cautious approach, and ultimately better decision making, if they know they will be directly held accountable, as opposed to diluting Blame or accountability for Sovereign decisions, that can only be made in London, by saying "British" or "UK", as the Celtic nations do not possess any Sovereignty. It is Unreasonable to have the Power but then try to redirect the Responsibility.
This is Not to say that some sort of a Definition of 'Britishness' Cannot be Formed, but it will mean London and England opening up to allow Celtic Nations Arts, Media and Literature to come through UK Wide using the London Mainstream Media, to allow Britain then to Create a Cultural Commonality as a group of Consenting Equals (a Consenting Union of Nations), that can then Define us as "British", based on living on the Same Island (a Collective of Nations, and Not as One supposed Country or Nation), and not just predominantly as English. However, the problem of Historically Stealing other People's Lands Without Firm and Consistent Democratic Consent, that already have Defined Borders and Identities, is that those Borders, Identities and Ethnicities will always remain, the best you can do is just try to amalgamate without prejudice, equally, but in the end, England will always be England and Anglo-Saxon, and Wales and Scotland will always be Wales and Scotland, and Celtic, these things cannot be erased, there in lies the problem for London, and the more you try to Belittle and Coerce the Minority UK Celtic Nations, to keep them Underdeveloped, and Under the Control of London, based on their Nations borders, the more the Celtic people will see their National Identities as further Reinforced, but as Subjugated People. As there could only be a 'Britain' or 'British' with the Original Briton's (the Celts, before the Angles and Saxons Occupied the Bordered Land Mass of England in 500 AD, after the Romans had left), the Island that the Romans called'Britannia' when they first arrived in 55 BC, because there were No Internal Borders at that stage, the only Border was the Coast of the British Isles as a Whole, so everyone that lived on the Island of Britain at that time were British as there were No internal borders to differentiate, but gradually over time OFA'S DYKE (785 AD) and HADRIAN'S WALL (122 AD) appeared creating distinguishable Internal National Borders, then the British Isles became Three separate Nations and Countries, and then with the arrival of the 'Angles and Saxons' (Danes and Germans creating an Anglo-Saxon English Ethnicity, 'Engla Land' means 'Land of the Angles') became Two Different Ethnicities and Races on the Island of the British Isles. Moreover, to further suggest that 'Britishness' was then forged as part of conflicts such as World War one, and two, along with many other Conflicts, appears Nonsensical as the Celtic Nations had no 'Choice' but to fight for London, indeed, as Evidenced in the Second World War in 1939 where the Republic of Ireland had the 'Choice' to remain Neutral due to their Independence in 1922. As London appear to want to create the term "Britain" to mean England, and Not as a Collective of Comparable Nations, with the Nations of Wales and Scotland as just regions of England, which effectively seems to try to Delete out the Nationhood of Wales and Scotland, along with their Celtic Ethnicity and History?
'What is Britishness', has been a Question Widely Debated and as of Yet, it appears No Real Definition has been Able to be Put Forward to Adequately Define this Statement (Just a Generic version that could apply to most countries). It appears mainly because most Academics 'Copy', 'Critique' or 'Tweak' other People's Existing Work as they Usually Lack 'Creative Thinking Skills',Brexit (2016) as an Obvious Recent Example (copying Canada, Norway & Australia's models), as Brexit has Never Happened Before, it has 'Flummoxed' UK Government Academics, all they will do is look to Copy someone else that has done something similar (a Child could do that), even though those 'Someone Else's, are different countries, and would have Circumstances Unique to them ('Basic Geography', and Not having 'Four Nations within one Collective', for example), with 'Not One Original thought' from the "UK Government" in London, that has Not been Suggested or Tweaked from another Country, being able to be put forward. Although, on the Odd Occasion there can be a nice easy, convenient fit, the Veto Vote in the EU for the UK for example (to serve as a Glue), but again it does not take a rocket scientist to understand the unifying benefits, but it also does not take a rocket scientist to understand that this would involve a sharing of 'Core Powers' form London, which is something that it appears will never happen, with London carefully selecting the powers that the Celtic nations are allowed, but then with the Sewell Convention (1998) meaning that they can over rule decisions made in the Celtic Nations, along with the recent Internal Markets Bill (2020) that takes even more of the limited powers away from the Celtic Nations and back into London, further Undermining any Celtic Devolution. Thinking of 'New Original Ideas and/or Perspectives' appears to be the Only Evidence of Real Intelligence and the Only Effective Strategy for Moving Society Forward? As British Values are stated as Democracy, Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, and Tolerance for different faiths, however these Values are Generic, and could pretty much Describe most Countries in the Western World, they are not Unique to the British Isles, with its somewhat unique Format and History. One thing we do know for sure is that Britishness is made up of Three Internationally Recognised Nations or Countries (hence separate International Sporting Teams for Example), consisting of the Majority 85% Anglo-Saxon English and the Minority Celtic Nations, these are separate Races and Ethnicities (Celtic & Anglo-Saxon), to Clarify then, being British, as well as Not being a Singular Country or Nation is also quite clearly Not a Singular Race of people, Regardless of the 'Rebranding' by London, after all the Celtic Nations had been Conquered by England. The Oxford Dictionary Definition of 'Country' - 'A nation with its own government, occupying a particular territory', and 'Nation' - 'a large body of people united by common descent, history, culture, or language, inhabiting a particular country or territory', which accounts for all the Nations of the UK. To 'Rebrand' all the UK Nations as one Country would be like trying to 'Rebrand' Scandinavia or Europe as one country, which would not be Logical or Feasible, as they are already Recognised Countries and Nations in their own right. In addition, all the Celtic Nations were Subdued before the Act of Union in 1707, so could not physically give Free Consent at that time, Wales was already Annexed, along with Cromwell's victorious 'Three Kingdom War' 1639-1653 including Ireland, and regards Scotland the 'Battle of Dunbar' 1650, for Example. This would be like me metaphorically grabbing someone by the throat and then asking them to sign their house over to me, and saying that they gave Consent.
To further clarify, 'Citizenship' is a Legal Status in a Political Institution such as a city or a state (London get to Define and Structure UK or British Citizenship as the main Political and Legal Power in the UK). 'Nationality', on the other hand, denotes where an Individual has been born. Again, I can only put my Interpretation on this Issue of British Identity, mainly for the reason that No Defining Description has been able to be Constructed, therefore the term 'Britishness' may have to be Defined Using a Different Set of Criteria, which is where this Interpretation may Provide Some Clarity? The Inability to Pin Point What ‘Britishness’ is, may possibly be mainly due to the supposed Contrasting 'Mind Sets', 'Identities', 'Cultures', 'Native Languages' (the 'Welsh Not' in Wales, were Welsh was encouraged to 'Not' be spoken in Welsh Schools), and 'Individual Histories' possessed by the Different Nations within the term Britain, they are 'Not One Homogenous Group'. This could be Compared to trying to Define the term ‘European’, again because of the Complex Differences and Histories of the Individual Countries within Europe to find an Instinctive Cultural and Social Commonality would be almost Impossible, it would be Easy to Identify a Land Commonality as all Europeans Live within a Defined Land Mass, but maybe Not a Cultural, Racial or Social Commonality? Moreover, there appears to be a Reluctance to Define 'Englishness' by England within this term Britain, mainly because it appears that to Define 'Englishness' is to Focus on 'Colonialism and the English Royal Family', and to Focus on 'Colonialism and the English Royal Family' will by definition Highlight the some what Coerced Unequal Relationship between England the Celtic Nations, who are all Historical Colonies of England Acquired Initially by previous English Kings and Queens, that still affects Britain to this day. Furthermore, the London English Establishment are Great Wordsmiths, nothing is accidentally said, so when London Politicians (& Media) Constantly say in the 'National' Interests (the Singular), they are subtly saying in England's Interests. If the statement was to actively reflect all UK Nations, it would be in all the 'Nations' interests (the Plural). This appears to subtly reflect and confirm London's view, that of Britain being just the one Nation or Country of England, with the other Celtic Nations simply being Provinces or Regions, there of (so not accepted as Separate Nations and Races)? Which appears to explain why there has never been a Firm Description or Definition of 'Britishness' or 'Englishness' by London, as London seem to want to continue to see them as one and the same, which would make sense as London to ultimately control the whole of the UK, be it a Region of England, or another UK Minority Nation?
Indeed, you cannot Quantify or Define British through its Habits and Behaviours, if only predominantly England are allowed to express their Cultural Narrative (making Britishness effectively Englishness), and in terms of British Symbols, again because London control the UK Mainstream Media (with Power to Licence a new TV Mainstream Channel only situated in London), as well as the main Social and Political Power in the UK, and tend to mainly only promote their own (Artists, Film, Music, Actors, History and Literature), then British Symbols by definition, will have a tendency to highlight Symbols of England that then become the representation of Britain as a Whole (Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, the Royal Family, Red Buses, as some simple examples). Actually, the NHS (National Health Service) is also seen as a British Symbol, but very few people know that a Welshman created the NHS (Aneurin Bevan), against great opposition, in the absence of highlighting its source (even in the recent Covid 19 pandemic (2020) where the NHS is being Celebrated daily, still the Creator is airbrushed out), then it is continuously assumed that it was just purely an English creation. Possibly the main Symbol of Britain would be the Union Jack flag, that has No Welsh representation included on it, so it would be difficult to even Present this easily recognisable Symbol as Symbolic of Britishness when it is not inclusive of all British Nations? As there are only three Nations in the term Britain (with N.Ireland making the UK), this might be the numerical equivalent of the USA only having 33 stars on their flag, not representing a third of their Nation (and no one saying anything)?
There is also the problem of 'Reappropriation' (Cultural Appropriation) by London (who own the UK Media and are the main UK Social and Political Power) of Celtic Culture. The prime example for Wales would be the 'Reappropriation' of the King Arthur Tales, which were created by Geoffrey of Monmouth (in Wales) based on medieval Welsh poetry talking specifically about Welsh Myth and Legend, even Merlin (original Welsh name Murddin Wyllt) was first written about in these medieval poems, as an actual person living in West Wales (Black Book of Carmarthen, West Wales). Although London have almost completely air brushed Wales out of the Arthurian Legend and created an almost exclusively English Cultural Narrative in its place.
So the term 'Britain' appears to be a Word used to Describe the British Island which is just a Geographic Description of the Island that we Live On as the Only Commonality, and Not the Social, Historic and Cultural Commonalities of the actually People who Live On It! However, for Example, it may be that rather than Describing Europe by Stating all the Individual Countries; it is possibly more Convenient to say Europe or European as that Describes and Locates People from a Specific Land Mass? Although, as Europe can be Defined as a Continent, possibly the term 'Scandinavia' may well be more suitable when Identifying Similarities to the Term Britain? This Scandinavian Description appears to apply to the Phrase Britain, as they Both Do Not present as Continents. It may just be Easier to State the term Scandinavia or Scandinavians rather, when Referring to People Deriving from that General Land Region of the World, than to Physically Mention All the Countries and Races within the Scandinavian Area, Denmark, Norway and Sweden or Danish, Norwegian or Swedish. Although, it does appear that the term Scandinavian is Not the main Subject of any Serious Evaluations, possibly as a result of all three Countries within Scandinavia Not being Governed by One, and trying to be Projected as apparently One Unified Homogeneous Group and Identity? So to Clarify, it does appear that Similar to the Phrase Scandinavia or Scandinavian, the term Britain or British may be Similar, so rather than Individually Stating the Separate Distinct Countries within Britain, it appears Easier and Less Time Consuming Both Verbally and in Writing to State the Term 'Britain' or 'British', which is Obviously very Useful, Fluid and Convenient When 'Talking' and 'Writing', almost as an Abbreviation of England, Scotland and Wales, or English, Scottish, and Welsh? Moreover, to say that we are all descendant's of Brtion's (the original Celts) and therefore are all British because we all came up through Europe after the last ice age as an homogenous group, is Nonsensical, as the Celtic people had already settled in Brittania for Centuries and Created a Nation of people, Race and Ethnic Identity, it was only much later that the Angles and the Saxon's came over from Germany and Denmark, that then came in from different already Recognised and Established Nations with their own Borders, Nationality, Racial and Ethnic Identities, creating the Anglo-Saxon Ethnicity, Race, Ancestry and Nation we know today as England.
As a Consequence we appear to be asked to Define an ‘ABBREVIATION’, when in Reality the Nation, Race or Country of "Britain" does Not appear to Actually Exist?... We are aware of the Three Countries/Nations (Anglo-Saxon & Celtic Ethnicities) within the Term ‘Britain’ and Occupying the Geographic Island Landmass known as ‘Britain’, but there appears to be No One Individual Country, Race or Nation called 'Britain'? There is England, Scotland and Wales all separate Countries/Nations with separate National Sporting Teams & Individual Representation, Flags, Specific Cultures, Histories, Languages, National Anthems, but there does Not appear to be 'One Homogeneous Nation', Country, Culture, Ethnicity or Society that can be recognised as Britain or British? Indeed Wales and Scotland appear to be Derived from their 'CELTIC ANCESTRY' and England appears to be Derived from an'ANGLO-SAXON ANCESTRY' (the name of England is the Anglo-Saxon translation for 'Land of the Anglo's), which means that the People Living on the Land Mass known as Britain are Not even All the Same 'RACE' or 'ETHNIC GROUP'?! So in essence trying to Define what ‘Britishness’ is, can be deemed as impossible at this stage, as the Nation/Country and a unified Race of Britain or British does Not appear to even Physically Exist, more a Coerced apparent Historical Artificially Imposed, from London, Political, Social, Financial & Military Paper Exercise of the Act of Union in 1707, you Cannot just Wish Away Other Peoples 'Ethnicities', 'Histories' and 'Identities'?... It does appear that the term British is used by the London English Establishment to give the Outside Impression of Unity and Strength to England through numbers, more a Projected Outside view of the British Isles, but within the Geographic are of Britain there are three Distinct Internationally Recognised Nationalities within the term Britain that have always been there and it appears will always remain, no matter how much the London English Establishment might want to Rebrand these Nations to their Favour? This Disunity further Reinforced by an Historic and Ongoing English Nationalism (which involves Slander of the Other and Favouring their own) which always Reminds the Three Nations of the British Isles that they are Different, and indeed that one will always be more powerful than the others. This Difference of Race and Ethnicity between the Minority UK Celtic Nations and the Majority Nation of England would Not be a Problem (of course not a problem for England as the Favoured Group, although it will be if the UK disbands) if there were Genuine Equality of the UK Nations, but as English Nationalism is rife (Favouring their Own) in London (who are the main power in the UK), Nationality has always been a Crucial Factor, as London tend to look at your Nationality First then decide whether to make a favourable decision or Not based on that, placing Great Emphasise on your Nationality and Ethnicity.
However, it is possible for a Firm Unifying Definition of ‘Britishness’ to be Formulated in the Future to Save the Union of the United Kingdom, if the motivation is present to achieve this goal from all the varying factions present within the British Isles (particularly England who hold power)? It would seem that in order to define a real Definition of Britishness to 'Unite' and 'Heal' Britain, we must first find a common positive thread between the Nations of Wales, Scotland and England, this maybe more difficult than it first initially appears. To Clarify, to Find an Historic and Modern wide ranging Commonality between the apparent Historical and Ongoing Majority Oppressor (as Evidenced with Uneven Development, Uneven Power Structures and Slander) and the apparent Minority Oppressed (the current 'Master' and the 'Servant?', see 'Describing the Welsh Relationship with England' Heading Below), could by definition be impossible at this stage? As it may be Easy to Identify that the Values, History and Experiences of any 'MAJORITY OPPRESSOR', will be the 'POLAR OPPOSITE' of the Values, History and Experiences of any 'OPPRESSED MINORITY'?!... So to quote the Political Catchphrase of ‘Common British Values’, and being 'British' as a Unified Group of Equal Partners who's people posses Matching Values, a Shared History, ongoing Commonalities and a Shared Access to Power, appears Entirely Misleading?... To this end it does appear that the Central London English Establishment leaders who may influence Sections of their population into Racist thought patterns as a result of their alleged total dominance of the 'British Mainstream Media', need to reassess their Values and make them Specific and Unique to the British Isles as a Whole, if a long term fruitful United Kingdom for All is desired, but perhaps as importantly a Solid Unifying Foundation of 'Britishness' is to be Created. Assuming that this is a shared goal within the whole of the British Isles, which may well only rely on the priority implementation of a Modern up to date 'Democratic Voting Model', possibly set out in a Constitutional structure that Cannot be Changed or Rearranged, which might include a Veto Vote system and/or 75% Majority Vote (to prevent deadlock) between UK Nations similar to the EU (and also see, 'Nation Specific Criteria' at the bottom of this page) to create Proven Equality (and Create a New Firm British Identity as Consenting Equals) between the Massive Population of England and the Comparably Tiny Populations of the other Celtic Home Nations(But Created with all the UK Nation's Participation and Consent). As Presently in any Combined 'UK' Wide so called 'Democratic Vote', the Views & Opinions of the Overwhelming Largest Population(English represent 85% of all the UK Voters) 'Will Only be Recognised Over the Others', the UK Wide 'EU Referendum' BREXIT Vote in June 2016 for example (see 'Nation Specific Criteria' Heading Below). Not to mention the Unique apparent 'Conflict of Interests' in voting that an English person may have living in Wales or Scotland due to England actually owning Wales and Scotland, when voting on Welsh or Scottish concerns (see 'Unequal UK Democracy' in heading above).
Britain is Not One Country it is Three Distinct Internationally Recognised Countries in an Historically Imposed Union (Four with the UK). However, As Wales (& Scotland) are the potential 'Competitor's on their Doorstep', they appear to need Controlling, using an Out Dated 'Lop Sided' Democratic System, to prevent a Level Playing Field. It Does appear Reasonable to state that, 'Just because we are Fortunate enough to have the 'Basic Principles' of Democracy in Britain (UK) does Not mean that it is Perfect,Fixed and Permanent and should Never be Improved or Adapted, and Forever Left Alone!....' However, as the current voting model in the UK disproportionately Favours the Majority 85% English Nation who possess all the main Political Power in the UK, then the Suspicion is that the Unfair Voting Model that exists today in Britain is going to remain, as the Mainstream London Based Political Motivation to change would Obviously not be there (although if this Current UK Voting Model was Unjust to England I am sure the Motivation would be Overwhelming & Unrelenting to alter it on the grounds of Fairness!...). Indeed, when it comes to identifying systemic or institutional manipulation of any sort regarding any subject matter, if you want to identify the original source, the architect, then start your investigation asking one Question, once this one Question can be answered, nine times out of the ten, working backwards from there, the rest will tend to naturally fall into to place, the miracle question is simply 'Who does it Benefit'? So for example, in the case of Britishness who does it benefit to be able to hide behind the term Britain, or prevent Financial, Social, Political and Democratic Equality for all UK nations, keeping ultimate UK power in London, using the UK Parliament with disproportionately more English MP's than any others with 533 English MP's and 117 representing the other 3 UK Celtic Nations. Obviously in a Parliamentary Vote on UK Wide Legislation, Choices or Policy, they are Outnumbered, so essentially the UK Parliament is an English Parliament but can Control the Whole of the UK, with the 'Sewell Convention 1998' as well as added Insurance, over Celtic Nations Devolved Powers.
Although Wales can be seen an Ongoing 'Colony' of England obtained through Force, Coercion and Manipulation centuries before, due mainly to basic 'Geography' as well as England's overwhelming numbers and resources. A new mind set of Equality and Fairness (Partnership) Needs to prevail from the London Power hubs, to formulate a Coalition of the Willing, moving away from Control (Master & Servant) to Partnership (Equality), to then Create a Unified Version of Britishness with 'Joint Histories' as Equals moving on into the Future,which again may further be Solidified with the 'Basic Starting Point' of Implementing a Similar 'VETO' System in the UK to that adopted in the EU (to Ensure Equality, Genuine Partnership & Parity in UK Wide Decision Making). However, recently the English Establishment have completely Blocked any Meaningful Direct Negotiation Input on the Terms and Strategy of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland's 'OWN' Exit of the EU as a result of the UK Wide EU Referendum in 2016 (Brexit) with Only the English Establishments Input and 'Control' Directly allowed, along with the Likely 'Power Grab' by the English Establishment of Powers coming Back from Europe after 'Brexit', also Taking Scotland & Northern Ireland out of the EU against their Democratic Will, and the Denying of a second independence referendum request by the Democratically Elected Scottish Parliament (2017-?), as a result of the 'Material Change' of Brexit (with a New Awareness of companies like Cambridge Analytica, Click for Link? and the Pro Bexit, anti-Scottish Independence view of many English people who Live and Vote in Scotland, who may have a Conflict of Interests), and judging by Basic Common Sense and Historical Facts, with many more Imposed Unfair Restrictions to come from London in the future, no doubt. As asserted by Abraham Lincoln (1883), 'Nearly All People can withstand Adversity, but if you want to Test a Person's 'Character', give them Power''.
'YOU CANNOT BE FRIENDS UPON ANY OTHER TERMS, THAN UPON THE TERMS OF EQUALITY'
However, it does appear that it is 'Never Too Late' to Change in order to 'Save' the 'Union of the United Kingdom', even at this late stage into possible Disunity, with the Breakup of the Union apparently very much gathering Momentum, the sort of Momentum that maybe only True Equality and a Fairer more Just Society 'For All' in the UK can Halt. As it may be argued you can only have Commonality amongst 'Equals', which appears to suggest that True Equality may well be the Only Starting Point of a New Unifying, Inclusive and 'Unambiguous' Definition of 'Britishness' to preserve the Union of the United Kingdom into the Future (or Not)?... But I would suggest that London will not be able to give up their key powers for Equality, as Power and Greed are just to powerful a force to resist. To Clarify what is meant by the term ‘Disunity Gathering Momentum’. There appears to have been a more rapid move towards the breakup of the United Kingdom in the last 17 years (2016) since 1999, with the emergence of Regional Assembly’s and more significant power shifts from Westminster, London (apparently forced through by the New Labour Government to prevent Scottish Independence momentum), than in the previous 290 years of the Union, since the act of Union was actually created in 1707? This fact may well provide some Evidence that the fixing of an apparently ‘Broken Britain’ is something that needs prioritising now, as the window for the Saving of the Union of the United Kingdom appears to have a very 'FINITE' Time Period Attached? If you think Logically by Assessing the Momentum Towards Separation within Britain (mainly as a result of New Technologies such as the Internet providing New Public Platforms), what would you think could possibly be the Only Outcome if this Separation Momentum Continue's to its Natural End Conclusion? Indeed, Blocking a New Scottish Referendum can lead to one of two outcomes, in the short term allows Brexit to be highlighted as the reason why Scotland need another referendum (a Material Change) and that they were taken out of the EU against their democratic will, and in the longer term creates a Firm Understanding of just how Controlled Scotland Actually is by London, where Blocking Democracy (Self Determination) will be seen as increasingly unfair by the Scottish people (to the necessary middle ground voter), either way Independence for Scotland is all but guaranteed. The only way London could have saved Scotland for itself is by doing a second referendum straight away (with a written contract stating not another one for a generation, defining once in a generation as at least 20 years) to prevent the narrative of unfairness from developing in the Scottish peoples mind set. Clearly, once Scotland goes there will be No Britain for Northern Ireland to be Loyal too, so will amalgamate with Republic of Ireland. Although it does seem quite 'Bizzarre' however, that the central English Establishment would focus so much attention on their relationship with Europe (The EU referendum 2016 & Brexit for example) before 'Consolidating' their Relationships within the UK (taking the UK Celtic Nations for Granted was your biggest mistake, and could only have been achieved through a purely English Mindset)? Slander and Inequality towards the Celtic Nations from England Weakens the UK as a Whole against External Threats, a scenario which appears to be directly Inflicted from London through apparent Internal Historic animosity (Slander) and Greed (keeping Wealth)? Again you Cannot have your Cake and Eat it, which is to say that, obviously you cannot act on Prejudice in the UK (Slander & Disrespect) and allocate Wealth predominantly to yourself (Inequality) as well as have a United Kingdom? As the UK is only as strong as it's weakest Link, why would you purposely weaken links in your own chain? Surely 'Common Sense'would dictate that you prioritise resolving your 'Home Concerns' First to Create a Solid Base and Foundation, before looking out Focusing your Attention on perceived 'External Concerns'? This may be like gazing out to look for fires on your neighbours houses, whilst behind you your own house is ablaze?
The Central London English Establishment and therefore their Nation appear to be at Great Risk of being 'Isolated' from Europe and then eventually being 'Isolated' from the rest of the UK? As some Home Nations such as Scotland and Northern Ireland, whilst still being Initially part of the UK, could join the EU through the 'Official Recognition' by the EU Member States of the recent referendum 'Brexit' results in June 2016, or some Celtic home Nations even re-joining Europe through their own further 'EU Endorsed' individual 'Democratically Recognised' referendums, and of course as a result of Independence or Irish Amalgamation? The English Establishment must understand that if the European Union (EU) want to change their Rules of Entry into their Own Club (for Scotland & Northern Ireland) or offer deals to other EU Member States to persuade them into a certain direction, as the English Establishment will now Not be members of the EU club (2017), they will Not posses the Power to 'VETO' any EU decisions that may disadvantage them, these changes to the EU rules of entry could happen quickly and fluidly? This Fast Evaporating Time Period to Save the Union of the UK may be a lot Sooner than the English Establishment Anticipates, as the Scottish Independence Question has yet to be Fully Unfolded, along with the possible, but maybe Inevitable knock on effects regarding the Other Home UK Nations with Northern Ireland Amalgamating with the Republic of Ireland, Scotland Independent, as well as England possibly Breaking Up Internally (although Northern Ireland might Amalgamate First, but apparently still the same knock on effects to the UK)? As this Text is being Constructed in 2016/17 it does appear that Northern Ireland May have already 'Figuratively Speaking' Amalgamated with the Republic of Ireland along with Scottish Independent (possibly arriving in the Coming Years, the English Establishment just Don't appear to have grasped this apparent eventuality Yet!!..) which has been particularly Advanced with the Advent of 'Brexit'. However, with this likely occurrence a very real possibility for the UK in the coming years, Common Sense would dictate that the Welsh People Need to Start the Debate 'Now' (2017) about what it's Future Contingency Plan is going to be in the event of the UK Disbanding (Independence, Equality Contract or Amalgamation as possible options?). It does seem that unfortunately the momentum for the Breakup of the Union of the United Kingdom is Based on One Major Principle and that is the Historic & Ongoing ‘Evidenced Unfairness’ (just because the London UK Media says it does not exist, Obviously doesn't make it so.., see the Underdevelopment of the Celtic Nations Compared to England as Easy Evidence, with HS2, HS3 & NPR Projects as further recent Easy Evidence) with the Uneven Power Base and Unfair Democratic System between the Majority tribe of England and the Minority tribes of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and even possibly perceived within certain Regions of the English Majority tribe, Although, it will be Considerably Easier to Voice Concerns being Part of the 'Majority Tribe', than being part of the 'Other', the Perceived Outsiders that are the Celtic Nations within the UK?!
However, given that the 'Oxford English Dictionary' Definition for the term of an 'Establishment' is, ‘A Group in Society Exercising Power and Influence Over Matters of Policy, Opinion or Taste, and Seen as Resisting Change’.The statement ‘and seen as resisting change’ appears to encapsulate how difficult it would be for the supposed 'English Establishment Elite' to Change from the 'Inside Out'. Within this supposed establishment their appears to be an Inherited mindset based in the early Colonial years of Britain, possibly continuing to be instilled using the medium of an English Private Boarding School Environment (including selected Grammer Schools) and then supposed elite English Universities such as Cambridge and Oxford (amongst others), as well as Inherited Social & Family Connections as well as Attitudes handed down through the Generations, that simply do Not correlate with the Modern New World Order of 2016, and has possibly not done so for some Decades?!....
The Obvious Reason for Resisting Change is that, 'When you have all the 'Inherited' Advantages and Power in the UK Why would you want that to Change'?!... However, this appears a Short Term Greed Based approach Based in an 'Outdated Inherited Colonial Mind set', as the wider picture is that without the Relinquishing of the possible Ongoing 'Delusional Perception of the Central London English Establishment', apparently based in Centuries Long Gone and Past, and then seemingly moving towards Continued Evidenced Democratic and Social Inequality today, the momentum of Disunity and Dissatisfaction may only increase within the British Isles? A word of caution for the alleged English Establishment needs proposing at this point, as the South East of England region and London may not be able to sustain its wealth and global influence without the backing from the rest of the United Kingdom’s combined Finance and Prestige, a probable consequence in the event of the United Kingdom disbanding? Perhaps a more Realistic, 'Non-Delusional'Understanding of the Consequences of Persisting with an Easily Evidenced Unfair Inherited 'London Centric Model' of rule (the Inherited Historic Colonial System) within the British Isles in Today's Modern Internet Information Age (2016), that can now highlight Inequality outside of the London Media, may Motivate the English Establishment to Create Commonalities & Equality within Britain as Opposed to possibly Persisting in Highlighting or Inventing any supposed Differences, and Recreating Ongoing Historical Inequality, which by definition may only Result in Perpetuating Separate Tribes assuming Different Identities and therefore seemingly and inevitably, Separate Futures within the British Isles, 'you Cannot say you have Not been Warned'?!...
Although the British Isles is a good place to live, but it could be so much better, if we can just address and acknowledge our history, regardless of how uncomfortable it may be, and stop trying to hide from it, so that all people can thrive regardless of Race, Nationality or Ethnicity, as we are either all Equally British, without Prejudice or Favour, or None of us are British, because being so called "British" only relies upon all Nations within this term Equally controlling its overall destiny, to ensure that they are all moving in an Agreed direction as one.
OTHER VARIABLES ASSOCIATED WITH 'BRITISHNESS'
THE APPARENT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE WELSH AND THE ENGLISH?
As stated previously, there appears to be a reluctance to define Englishness by England within this term Britain, mainly because it appears that to define Englishness is to focus on 'Colonialism and the Royal Family', and to focus on 'Colonialism and the Royal Family' will by definition highlight the some what coerced relationship between England the Celtic Nations, who are all Historical Colonies of England acquired Initially by past English Kings and Queens. This English Welsh (Celtic) "Relationship" has Puzzled me and many people for years, as a result I have Pondered the Differences between Wales a ‘Celtic’ Nation and England who are of ‘Anglo-Saxon’ Heritage (the Anglo-Saxon translation for the name England is 'Land of the Anglo's'). Here are my thoughts, make of it what you will?... When Identifying what the Differences are between Wales and England, I feel that looking at who each Nation has Chosen as the Person to Best Represent 'Who They Are', would be the Best Starting Point.The National Patron Saint of Wales is 'Saint David' a man who devoted his life to Christianity and indeed spread the word across to Ireland and the West of England. The smallest City in Britain is named after him in West Wales. However, England do not have a Patron Saint that is Specifically Connected to it, who has possibly demonstrated a non-violent Christian ethos. England’s patron saint, selected by their English Establishment, is ‘Saint George’ allegedly a Greek National (some say Turkish) who fought in the Roman army as an officer, who appears to have made his reputation through violent acts. Even as a Christian he still possibly proceeded to kill for his Roman masters, which appears to be anything but Christian? However, he did apparently eventually die for his Christian beliefs?
The Absence of a Saint Specifically Connected from England and the choice by the English Establishment of an apparent ‘Warrior Saint’, seems to demonstrate a natural slant away from Christianity and possible moral parameters, and a leaning towards celebrating uncensored power and aggression? Indeed in the crusades the English were led by 'Richard the Lion Heart' who appeared to use Christianity and the Church of England in a possibly calculated manner to validate alleged theft of possessions and land, as well as murder under the more palatable and possibly justifiable banner of God and Jesus. No evidence can be found in any Christian teachings filtered through the Bible that validates murder and theft, under any circumstances, least of all as a possible tool to spread the word of Jesus?
This Leads the author to suggest that the possible Main Difference Between the 'English', usually Initially their controlling establishment, and the 'Welsh' is that the English appear to allow their 'HEADS' to Predominantly Rule over their Hearts when Decision Making, and the Welsh appear to allow their 'HEARTS' to Predominantly Rule over their Heads, both of which posses Differing Positive and Negative Outcomes? To Clarify, the question that appears to be most commonly asked by English Establishment decision makers to themselves is, ‘What course of action would best benefit me and my Interests’, regardless of any possible Moral boundaries that Christianity may place on any decision or behaviour, of course the British Isles is supposedly founded on Christian values? This behaviour appears to be further demonstrated through England’s Colonial past? Where as in Wales with an apparent Christian ethos and background, created through such Native Welsh people as Saint David, they appear to Predominantly ask the question of themselves when regarding decision making of,‘What is generally the right thing to do in this situation’? Even if this course of action may Not benefit their own personal interests, indeed the decision may severely disable their interests, but the decision may feel instinctively Morally Correct? In summary when making Decisions from a person’s 'Head' the Decision Concluded appears to usually revolve around the Objective of what may Best Suit their Specific Particular Interests? When a person makes a Decision Based on their 'Heart', the Decision appears to come with a more Wider Collective Emotional Perspective?
These Different approaches appear to have a Significant Impact on the Self 'Identity' and external 'Perceptions' of the two Nations? In making a Predominantly Moral decision a person possibly Sacrifices any Maximum Gain usually on a Financial or Political level for a Moral Gain. When you Lose Financially but Gain Morally, you may be Financially Poorer but Morally you may be Enriched, which may feed into a view of you and your Race as possibly more morally correct people? Alternatively, when decisions are made that possibly Predominantly Ignore Moral parameters and are made to Maximise Personal Benefit at apparently any cost (the general absence of any emotional connections), they may become Politically and Financially Stronger, but their Citizens and Nation may Lose their sense of right and wrong and therefore their sense of self? When you perceive yourself to be predominantly 'Amoral' you may perceive yourself to be bad? This perception appears to affect the National psyche of England, as for every 'Gain' there is a 'Loss', when deciding with your 'Head' there appears to be a Gain in 'Wealth', 'Power' and 'Influence' (Colonialism, Crusades & Slavery), but a distinct Loss in Moral Authority? This apparent Loss of Morality can be Noticed not only within the apparent Head controlled country but also to the wider world, and therefore over time may begin to Define Who and What a Nation may be as a People and as an Individual Country?
In simple terms a 'Patron Saint' of a country appears to demonstrate that Nation’s Values and Psychology, or at least that Nation’s elite establishment’s thought processes (which tends to Filter down to their people), as it is those representatives who possibly choose the character traits of the person that they most Admire and want to Represent their Nation and People as a whole? When England’s establishment chooses a 'Warrior Saint' as the person to best represent them to themselves and the rest of the world over a passive non-violent man, like the rest of Britain with Saint David for Wales, Saint Patrick for Ireland and Saint Andrew (the Apostle) representing Scotland, then the assumption may be that that Nation places greater Value in Physical and Financial Power rather than Spiritual and Moral strength? This 'Patron Saint' choice for England would appear to make perfect sense on a Logical basis, the Head, as warriors can promote the Protection of their Wealth, but also possibly Promote the taking away of other peoples Land and Wealth, leading to Greater Power and Riches (Crusades, Slavery and Colonialism).
Predominantly promoting a Moral strength, the Heart, may Not logically lead to any Tangible Gain if your Goal is Wealth and Power. This Logical, 'Head' approach appears to fit quite nicely into the largely Secular approach to issues demonstrated in today’s politics and society as a whole within Britain (2016), of course controlled by the apparent English establishment club. In summary it does appear that Welsh people may Predominantly make decisions based from the ‘Heart’ an emotional approach with a moral compass, asking themselves the question, ‘What is generally the right thing to do in this circumstance?’ Whereas England appear to Predominantly make decisions using their‘Head’a Logical approach, with possibly their internal dialogue asking the question, ‘What is generally the right thing to do for me and my Interests in this circumstance'?
There are Historic Welsh examples of decisions possibly made from the 'Heart' such as Aneuarin Bevan who created the National Health Service (NHS) and David Lloydd George who introduced the inception of a Welfare State and Pensions, both now World Wide Norms. To present some more recent possible Evidence of the apparent Welsh character, predominantly the 'Heart', regarding decisions that are in their control Examples can be provided with 'Free Prescriptions' and 'University Education Subsidised', Both Costly and Both that Do Not Exist in England (2016). Along with the Introduction in Wales in 2011 (the First to do so in the UK) of a 5 penny Plastic Bag Tax to help avoid Plastic Pollution and the First in the UK to Introduce the 'Opt Out' system on Organ Donations, amongst others. However, if Wales were to make decisions on Logic with their Head, the extra cost of these expensive decisions could be used in a more calculated manner than apparently supporting their Population or Environment?
As a result of limited powers that Wales has (2016) it appears beneficial to state how Scotland makes decisions, a land with a lot more powers over their affairs but possibly a similar history to Wales with England, as they are both a Celtic Nation on the same land mass within Britain, and Historically Controlled by England? A recent example to Demonstrate the Central London English Establishment’s possible Predominantly 'Head Over Heart' approach may be Evidenced when In August of 2009 Scotland handed over their Libyan detainee ‘Abdel Baset al-megrahi’ to Libya, the ‘Lockerby Bomber’ on compassionate grounds due to Prostate Cancer. Scotland was governed at the time, and indeed still is to the present day in 2016 by the Scottish National Party (SNP). They were able to make this decision as they have devolved powers from England over Criminal Justice. Even though there was Fierce Opposition from England and America, understandable from America due to many of the deceased victims of the Lockerby air disaster originating from America? It is pertinent to note when comparing the difference between England and Wales, as well as possibly the Celtic Nations, that England would Not have made the decision to release Mr. Al-Megrahi, possibly favouring political gain from America over pursuing what could be perceived as the right Moral course of action?
However, despite any possible political power Scotland could have garnered from this position through appeasing America and England, they did the apparently Morally Correct course of action? Scotland allegedly Sacrificed Political Gain for apparent Moral Righteousness, as keeping a dying man out of revenge is morally corrupt, 'Bitterness always creates more Bitterness'. The High Moral Ground may only be gained for a Nation when a Nation does an act that separates them from the murderous actions of the people who they are condemning, 'If you act in the same manner as them, then you are no better than them'? This Principled move appears to have highlighted to the outside world that Scotland may be a Ethical place to be, and could be trusted to do the right Christian course of action even in very 'Tough Circumstances' (as Revenge is one of the Most Powerful Forces to Resist). The reward is a good name, some people may argue a good name is priceless in relations with the outside world for trade and industry. However, possibly more importantly is the self concept this decision may provide to the Scottish identity of apparently perceiving themselves as moral people?
In addition, even though America and England seemed to be appalled at this decision, Scotland’s resolve has possibly made America and England a safer place to be through Scotland’s apparent selfless moral act. It is important to note that the so called terrorists who have sought to hurt the western world through Libya and Iran are now possibly in appreciation of this moral act, as it is very difficult to justify hating on, 'proven good people'. As Scotland appears to have demonstrated a strong Ethical representation of not only themselves but the whole western capitalist world?
DESCRIBING THE WELSH RELATIONSHIP WITH ENGLAND?
'A Master & Servant Relationship'?...
When considering Equality for Wales within the UK, Equality with Specifically England must be sought as the English Establishment possess almost Total Ultimate Control over all the UK Finances, Tax, Law, Business, Media, Democracy and Politics, with Wales presenting as England's First and Oldest Ongoing Colony (with No End Date in Sight), who are also the Overwhelming Wealthiest Nation in Britain, with 85% of the Entire UK Population.Indeed if we are to assume that Colonialism still exists in Britain between England and Wales (which would seem Reasonable as 'No End Date' has been Established, and Wales is Not Independent of London) then Colonialism by it's 'very Definition' is the 'Practice of Domination, which Involves Subjugation of One Nation Over another'. As without Democratic Consent the Relationship between Wales and England remains an 'INVOLUNTARY' one. It is appears Important to Identify the Historical and Current Relationship Wales has with their English Neighbours, as without Identifying the 'Current Scenario' it would be Impossible to Gauge Change to Measure How Far Towards Equality Wales has come from the Current Starting Point of apparent Historical and Ongoing Inequality? So it does not seem unreasonable due to the Historical and Ongoing 'Inherited Systemic Colonial Power Imbalance' that the Central London English Establishment has over nearly every aspect of Welsh life to Historically and Presently Describe them as the Welsh ‘Masters’, making Wales the 'Servant'? An Ongoing position Created through 'Undemocratic' Force Centuries Earlier (the Forced Undemocratic Act of Union in 1707), which appears to be the Left Over Inherited Ongoing Systemic Legacy of a Distant World Wide Colonial Time? The Historical Ongoing Inherited Systems Embedded in the UK Before the UN Laws on Colonialism Seems to have Ensured Colonial Dominance?... There appears to be a reluctance to define Englishness by England within this term Britain, mainly because it appears that to define Englishness is to focus on 'Colonialism and the Royal Family', and to focus on 'Colonialism and the Royal Family' will by definition highlight the some what coerced relationship between England the Celtic Nations, who are all Historical Colonies of England acquired Initially by past English Kings and Queens.
The term 'Colonialism' refers to another Country Owning another Country (Wales Annexed in 1542 without Democratic Consent to this day). In Wales case today Internal Colonialism because of Annexation in 1542 (within a wider forced UK group). 'Internal Colonialism' is Defined by Encyclopedia.com as, 'The term internal colonialism defines a condition of oppression or subordination', being oppressed or subordinate to other's forces servitude (Servant), the Oxford Dictionary Definition of Servant is, 'a person who performs duties for others', so not for the Benefit of themselves but for the Benefit of others. An Oxford Dictionary Definition for the term Master is, 'a man in charge of an organization or group' or to 'Gain Control or Overcome'. So a Slave is Personally Owned by another Person, were as Colonialism is a Country that is Owned as an entire entity, by another Country.Of Course whilst Serving, Subordinate to your Master you will be doing jobs that you would not normally do, if you had free will. Indeed how many servants have you ever heard of saying No to their Masters, particularly in a time when the UN or Human Rights did not exist (Wales as an Autonomous Nation has Never Forcible Colonised anyone in all it's Numerous Centuries old History). I hope this has clarified this subject matter some what?
However, when Assessing all the Evidence which is Easily Accessed through a Simple Home Computer Connected to the World Wide Web (the New Internet Information Age), so Don't take my Word for it, 'Look it Up'. England being Expressed as 'Master's of Wales' although sounding Harsh appears to be a Perfectly Valid and Truthful Description of the English/Welsh Association, given the Easily Evidenced Historical and Ongoing Power Imbalance Between England and the Celtic UK Nations. No Matter how Unpalatable the Term would be to the Welsh people (and the Celtic Nations), and No Matter how Awkward it may be for the Central London English Establishment to Continue to Rule with this apparent 'Truthful' and 'Easily Evidenced' Description Publicly Acknowledged, Exposed & Debated.However, as Further Expressed by George Santayana (1863-1952) an Eminent Spanish Philosopher, 'The Truth is Cruel, but it Can be Loved, and it Makes Free Those who Love it'. In addition, there is a saying that I have known for quite a while now and indeed in many ways it informs my thinking, it goes a little like this, ‘The Bitterest Truth, is Far Better than the Sweetest Lie’. At Least when a person knows the apparent Evidenced Truth,'No Matter How Harsh & Painful that may be'(the Truth is very Rarely Kind), that person then is Brought into Reality Awaking from their apparent UK Media and Socially Constructed Delusion, Naivety, Ignorance and Apathy with a Thud, but at least then can Act Based on Harsh Easily Evidenced Truths (Use this New Valuable Resource of the Internet to Question and/or Confirm what is Written here).Indeed, Wales being apparent Historic and Ongoing 'Systemic Servants' to England when they were a Colonial World Super Power in Past Centuries could just about be Understandable.However, Now Centuries on in the Modern World where England are No Longer a force on the World stage any more,this apparent Perpetually Inherited Ongoing Servant & Master 'Left Over Colonial Legacy' has Now become some what of an 'Embarrassment' for the very Capable Nations of Wales and Scotland (as it 'Infantilizes' these Nations).
Now, Let’s look at an 'Oxford English Dictionary Definition' of the term 'MASTER', which is to say, 'A MAN IN CHARGE OF AN ORGANISATION OR GROUP' or 'GAIN CONTROL OR OVERCOME'. Wales has No Choice (as the English Establishment in London make the overall UK Laws) but to Work for Money that is then repeatedly 'TAXED' directly by the Bank of England based in London, with those Funds then Allocated as the English Establishment see fit. Just to possibly underline the Importance of the people who control the 'PURSE STRINGS', it may be worth quoting the twentieth President of the United States of America 'James A. Garfield' when he stated in 1881 that, 'He who Controls the Money Supply of a Nation Controls the Nation'. The 'Oxford English Dictionary' goes onto to Clarify that the term 'SERVANT' is the state of, 'A PERSON WHO PERFORMS DUTIES FOR OTHERS', (so Ultimately Not for their Own Advantage or Growth but being Directed for Someone Else's Advantage). However, the End Result of working for 'Someone Else's Benefit' appears to be the same when you consider that Wales 'Works for Money' with a Significant Percentage then ‘Legally’ Extracted from their Annual Wage through 'Income Tax', 'National Insurance', along with the many other Various forms of Taxes, including 'Value Added Tax' (VAT) at 20%' on all Daily Welsh Transactions, as well as Further Heavier Tax (Duty) on Fuel, Tobacco and Alcohol, amongst Numerous others. With all this Annual Welsh Generated Tax going Directly into the English Authorities Purse for then to Decide Allocation (the Bank of England in Central London). Perhaps the Fact that the 'Bank of England' is Not called the 'Bank of Britain' may provide an Insight into the Subconscious Thought Process of the Central English Establishment? So to Describe England as the Systemic'Masters of Wales' would appear to be an Obvious, but Harsh, choice of Words, with all 'Common Sense' Evidence apparently Pointing Towards this Assertion? In the Centuries Past UK Money (TAX) may have been Taken Directly Face to Face by the Sword at a Person's Door. InModern Timesthe Money (TAX) is taken using Accountants and Computers through a Person’s Wages and Daily Transactions, but Ultimately the'End Result'of Money being Taken Off Welsh People (the Powerless Servants) by England (the Powerful Master),Remains, its just Taken in a MoreModern,EfficientandSubtle Manner.The Master has the Systemic Power to Direct a Servant to Undertake Actions that may Not Benefit the Servant (in Fact could Severely Disadvantage the Servant) but Advantage the Master.The Servant may be aware of this(or not, particularly if they have No independent Media), but Either Way does Not ultimately have the'Power to Disagree'...A Master Servant Relationship is Defined by One thing, 'The Power Imbalance'. Welsh Style Colonialism Commonly Referred to as'Internal Colonialism' (Leo Marquard 1957), which has been described as the 'Uneven Development & Exploitation of Close Proximity Territories & People'within an Overall Wider Realm.
The apparent Opposition to the Public Exploration of an Historic and Ongoing Systemic 'Master & Servant' Association between England & Wales (and apparently the other Celtic UK Nations)by the English Politicians and seemingly Interlinked English Establishment London based Mainstream Media, may well be based on One main premise, and that is keeping Wales (and the other Celtic home Nations) apparently Ignorant of the Truth and therefore Historically Subordinate (Not Wanting Independence)? An Ignorance Easily Achieved you may say if the Only Forms of Mass Education through Traditional Mainstream UK Wide Media such as Television, Films, News, Radio, Newspapers and Magazines are apparently all Controlled through a London Filter, even the Regional Channels. Although the World Wide Internet in modern times is slowly beginning to allow a Challenge to this Traditional Mainstream UK Wide Media Dominance (2016). The Central London English Establishment appear to be all too aware that if this apparent Easily Evidenced Truthful (but Harsh) and Realistic Description of the English and Welsh Relationship as a Undemocratic Inherited Ongoing Master and Servant Association, ever gets Established in the 'Thought Processes' of the Welsh public (and possibly the other Celtic home Nations regarding their Relationship with England), then this Scenario could well Finally Result in a 'Widespread Serious Reassessment' of what it actually Means to be Governed by England for So Long?.... Indeed, it might be wise to First Assess Finally what the views are of the UK Majority English Mass Population are Regarding the Union of the United Kingdom in their own referendum if the UK is going to Work Together as Modern Equal Partners in the FUTURE (See 'What are the Views of the English Regarding the UK?' on 'p16' of the Electronic Book Provided Above)?
As it's very easy to look back at the Dates of Colonialism and assume that that was back then, but Colonialism whether a country and people are still essentially a Colony, or whether a country and people have been officially decolonised, this still impacts these people and countries to this day, whether that be Psychologically, Financially or Socially. The only way to counter these negative affects is to talk openly about Colonialism, acknowledge its damaging impact, and develop strategies for finally moving on through a broad Continuous National Conversation (which some former colonies have managed to do), or risk always walking around with that unattended open wound on a counties National Consciousness (of course not having an Independent Media is Wales interferes with this process).
Since the Formation of the UN (United Nations) in 1945 matters regarding International Security and Human Rights can Now be Diverted to this Authority. As It does appear that Wales still thinks they have the Gun to their Heads and Sword to their Throats when thinking in terms of their Nations Relationship with England, but the Truth is that the Gun was removed in 1945 with the Formation of the UN directly after the second world war. As England are no longer a world super power, and free to act with impunity, due to bigger powers now being present on the World stage to regulate their behaviour in the New World Order. Indeed, further obvious Evidence of a 'Master & Servant' Association is that Wales has to be Granted Permission by the English Establishment to even Hold and Independence Clarification Referendum (an Independence or Not Vote) to Finally Clarify (after 300 years of a Forced Union) if Wales actually Consent to being in the UK or Not (Must have Permission from their Master's First), and of course as it Benefits the English Establishment to Continue to Control and Exploit Wales, they Simply Never have to Give any Permission for an Independence Vote to Keep Hold of their Centuries Old Property? This is like me saying to my Wife that you Cannot Divorce me (if that is her Choice) Without my Permission to do so?...
However, Wales do Posses Some Limited Powers since Devolution in 1999, which is perhaps more 'Admin Based' with all the Ultimate Power over Business, Finance, Tax, Politics, Law & Media Still Residing in London, England. Although even the Limited Powers that Wales do possess appear to be under 'Direct Attack' as Powers coming Back from Europe as a Result of 'BREXIT' in areas that Wales currently (2016) have 'Devolved Control in Direct Partnership with Europe' are likely to be Redirected Back into specifically English Influence, in an apparent 'Power Grab' (Why would the English Establishment want all Powers that were devolved to Wales and Scotland by Europe initially coming back Directly into London, if they are going to allow these Powers to Wales and Scotland anyway? However, many people Point Out the Obvious Fact that in this Scenario the English Establishment then have the Power to 'Pick and Choose', 'Rearrange' or 'Insert Caveats' (in their own time after Brexit when the spotlight is off the UK) which Powers Suit them and their needs, at the apparent ongoing Expense of all the other UK Celtic Home Nations?.... 'Constitutionally' going Against what the Welsh People had Voted for in the 'Official Legal Democratically Recognised' 2011 Referendum on 'More Powers' (Not Less) for Wales with 63.4% Voting 'Yes' & 35.2% Voting 'No', which seems to Further Demonstrate the Power of the Master over Servant, to be Brutally Honest 'What can the Servant do about it?!..' (although there is the UN and International Laws & Courts). So Ultimately Wales appears to be Subject to complete London English Establishment Dominance in all key areas such as Finance, Politics, General Taxation, Law, Democratic System, Business and Media, as possibly further Evidenced just in recent times with 'No' Direct Input being Allowed for Wales in their 'OWN' EU Brexit Negotiation Strategy (with Only England Representing the UK). Along with the Democratically Elected Scottish Government being Denied a Second Independence Referendum (2017), and with taking Scotland and Northern Ireland out of the EU against their Democratic Will, combined with the likely 'Power Grab' from London regarding Powers coming back from the EU as a result of Brexit. Indeed, It seems that the 'Control', 'Direction' and 'Direct Participation' of the EU Negotiation's, 'Process and Outcomes' regarding Brexit is apparently for the 'Inherited Master's Privilege Only'?...
WHY DO MOST ENGLISH PEOPLE APPEAR TO GENERALLY
DESCRIBE THEMSELVES AS BRITISH?...
It does appear that Stating the term ‘English', 'Welsh' or 'Scottish’ (all Individually Accountable Nations) Clarifies Specific Responsibility, so what is Said or Actions undertaken may be 'Pin Pointed' at a certain Race or Nation within the UK. The English Establishment saying British appears to 'Blur the Lines of Consequence', as Identifying any Specific Recognised UK Nation to Attribute Accountability could mean that the subject matter being Discussed could Lead to 'Three Separate Conclusions of Accountability' (& therefore Closer to the Individuals that actually took that Decision), but saying Britain or British (through the London Media the Only National & International Media Voice) Provides a Collective Wider Responsibility which appears to Avoid Direct Accountability, the 'British Empire' for example (Remember that the UK Parliament that makes UK Wide Decisions is Essentially an English Parliament with '533' out of '650' MP's Representing England), along with Stealing Important Cultural Artefacts from other countries and saying should "Britain" hand them back, well "Britain" never stole them (the Celtic Nations), they are generally situated in the place that stole them, in London, the Elgin Marbles as a further example, amongst many. Moreover, when English people say they are ashamed of their country they will tend to say ashamed to be British, not English, as again there shame of England can covertly be hidden inside the general term Britain or British, again blurring the lines of any responsibility, spreading the shame so its not just focused on you or your individual nationality, like a Welsh person saying that as so called British people we are all slandered as sheep shaggers, but the English will say straight away, no that is only specific to you and your nationality. Even Historic terms like English Exceptionalism Click for Link (which means do not have to have any talent, being English is talent enough) are phrased as British Exceptionalism by the English to try to divert from being seen as conceited and self important, diverting any negative connotations of their own nation of England. We are all happy to take Responsibility for Something we did, but to have the Responsibility imposed on you from London by Association when it was not your Decision, most people would find as extremely unreasonable, at best. As Implementing the term 'British' or 'Britain' almost appears to be an attempt to 'DILUTE' any Criticism and 'HIDE' from any Negative Backlash for UK Decisions that could be 'Directly Linked' to the Central London English Establishment and Consequently their Specific Nation? Moreover, in using the term 'Britain' or 'British' on the World Stage the English Establishment seem to want to Portray the Image of a Unified Britain with all UK Nations Equally Treated with Respect and Fairness in a Consenting Union (again almost Trying to Delete Out Forced Colonialism, which is the Reason Why England Still Ultimately Controls the UK to this Day)? However I do think it is a valid point at this stage to highlight that there does appear to be an over use of the word England or English if a Positive event occurs, but also an over reliance on the word British to possibly Spread the Shame if a Negative scenario presents itself. Moreover, Many English People appear to Generally Call Themselves British, to Possibly try to Distance Themselves from England's Some What Questionable Past (Crusades, Colonialism & Slavery that Still has an Impact to this Day in the UK) and Attach Themselves to the Overall Celtic Nations possibly slightly more Positive world wide perception? As many English People appear to be Proud to be British, and/or like the Association with the Celtic Nations, but very Rarely Mention (or even Avoid) if they are Proud to be Specifically English?... Stating the term British all the time also appears to prevent England exploring what is it to English, and what Englishness actually means?... The term and Definition of British appears to be a London enforced term, but any term or Definition of Britishness must be defined with the direct input of all the UK nations equally, including Northern Ireland (using a veto vote for a final definition), it cannot continue be imposed on the other UK nations by England.
As the Celtic Nations have a Vastly Different History to England, and let’s be Honest a more Palatable one?... Then it almost seems as if when an English person, Politician or International Business (or even something as simple as UK award ceremonies Brits, Bafta etc) States or Promotes the Term 'Britain' or 'Britishness', they are almost Trading on the 'Good Name of the Celtic Nations'. The Good Name of Resilient, Tough, Durable people apparently 'Won Ironically Enough' through their Historical & Ongoing Struggles with England.So when the English Establishment Hijack the Term Britain or British (Brits) they appear to want to Associate themselves with the Tag of people 'Fighting the Good Fight against their Oppressor', when they are actually the Historical and Ongoing Oppressor within the UK!?... As many English people seem to want to Exchange their possibly 'Questionable Name' (so possibly Trying to Delete out Historical Colonialism?) by seeming to 'Hide' their Specific Identity and Origin behind the 'Ambiguity' of the term 'Britain' or "British" (the Oxford English Dictionary definition of 'Ambiguity' is, 'Open to More than One Interpretation'). This also appears apparent when many English people seem to attach themselves to another culture, by saying I'm half Irish, Scottish or French, or I am of Jewish heritage, it appears anything but to admit to being purely just English, with all the possible connotations involved? It appears Easy to say You are Proud to be British as an English Person, as the alleged Sins of the English Establishment's Past such as the Crusades, Colonialism and Slavery (which have never been properly acknowledged and dealt with to this day in 2016, meaning that the English people appear to have to Carry their Own Historic Colonial Burden into the Future, unless publicly reconciled) will be Vastly 'Diluted' when you put yourselves into an Equation with Three Other Countries/Nations with their Different Cultures, Histories and Characters.
Moreover, a Further Reason for the English Establishment to Embrace the term 'British' appears to be the Perception of 'Collective Power'. To Clarify, when discussing in terms of Credibility, when an English Politician uses the word 'Britain' or 'Brits' on the World Stage this term comes with the Credibility and Influence of the Celtic Nations. As Essentially when an English Politician says England then they appear to have Less Credibility and Power on the World Stage than saying Britain or British. The term Britain Infers Not One Nation but Three Nations Combined in a Solid Unity, three Nation’s Perceptions, Power, and Influence as Opposed to One. It does appear that it could be argued that when English people state the term ‘Britain’ or ‘British’ to Represent Themselves, they are attempting to Trade on the Overall Good Name of the Celtic Nations? However, when simply stating the term British as one Homogeneous Group this seems to assume that Britain is an Equal Consenting Collective, all working as One towards the Same Shared Goals, with No Issues of Nationalism or Favouritism of having One Overwhelming Controlling Majority Nation with Three smaller Minority Nations attached? In the past decades (if not Centuries) this could be glossed over by using the English Establishment's London British Media to tell the world that the UK is made of of the Celtic Nations loyalty supporting England as their leaders, in a consenting equal partnership. However, in recent times because of the Internet the truth regarding the UK is beginning to emerge to the outside world of the actual relationship between the Celtic Nations and England, with the one majority population using that population to govern the UK through their version of Democracy with little or no actual consent (Sewel motion for example 1998).
Another Anomaly that appears to present itself regularly concerning the use of the term 'British' through the London based Mainstream Media Bias(the Only Mainstream Media allowed in the UK, the Celtic Nations do not possess any mainstream Media, the power to authorise TV Channels is in London), seems to occur if a Celtic Home Nations person achieves great success on the world stage, but if they Embrace or Promote their 'Individual Celtic Nationality' (which by Definition could be seen by the English Establishment as Deleting England out of any Association or Celebration of certain peoples Talent) then there appears to be a London Media attempt to 'Ignore' or 'Demean' them? For example, the Undefeated Super Middle Weight World Boxing Champion JOE CALZAGHE (in the Hall of Fame in the USA) who is Welsh with Italian ancestry. Who retired Undefeated in 2008, 46-0-0 (Unblemished Record), who also defeated US Legends Roy Jones Junior & Bernard Hopkins in America, the First Boxer to be Undefeated with an Unblemished Record (46-0-0) since Rocky Marciano in the 1950's. Who the London based English UK Media have always appeared to 'Try' to Ignore (Even Now, Never allowed any British TV Commentary or Exposure, almost attempting to Delete him out of Sporting History within Britain?) whilst allegedly attempting to only Focus on their Own English fighters present at the time (Carl Froch, Amir Khan and Ricky Hatton, Anthony Joshua etc). Furthermore, even though Joe Calzaghe was a Regular Three Weight Amateur Champion (ABA) he was Not Allowed to go to the Olympics?!... However, success in the USA (& World Wide) meant it was Eventually Outside of the English Establishment's Direct UK Traditional Media Control. Moreover, just to 'Expand' and 'Explore' this particular point of alleged London based Media Disregard, Isolation & Starving of Publicity (of Non English people from the UK) as this still appears to be Evident (2016) with the Welsh Football (Soccer) Player GARETH BALE (the World's Most Expensive Player in 2013, who Won Four Champions Leagues) who plays for Real Madrid (with Numerous other examples through out UK History John Charles (Soccer) in the 1950's as another simple example). Wales is not permitted any National or International Media so are in the Unenviable and some what Vulnerable position (as you Cannot Defend Yourself) of Having to Rely on the Some One Else's Media (London based English Media) for Rebuttal, Defence, Endorsement and Support to Raise & Defend a Persons International Profile (the Lack of Support apparently Conspicuous by it's Absence), which means Welsh Stars can be Vulnerable and Isolated to outside personal media slander on their character as there is no media representation from the UK to Defend them or to balance out a debate. This Induced Reliance on the London based Media for Support, is within a Backdrop of an Well Documented Historic and Ongoing Some What Acrimonious Relationship Between the English and the Welsh (Inherited Colonialism)? Given this Some What Historic Acrimonious Relationship, it appears that the English London Based Media Posses Limited Motivation to want to Endorse & Promote a Welsh person and therefore Wales on the International Stage? To Clarify, 'Simply Compare' (just with this One 'Case Study', as there are many More Historic Examples in All Areas of UK Public Life) the London Based Media's Favourable (Positive Regard?) Exposure, Promotion and Support for 'David Beckham' (English) when he played for Real Madrid in 2003-07, there was even a TV Show charting David Beckham's progress on a mainstream channel (& in General), to the Welshman 'Gareth Bale' playing for Real Madrid 2013 & onwards (who has Achieved More than David Beckham Ever Did?!). But if a person is Not English (from the UK) and Earns World Wide Success, then he or she also appears to be Branded as "British" by the London based UK National and International Media, apparently in an Attempt to Associate England with their Success to the World, so Deleting Wales (or other Celtic Nations) out of the conversation, placing the favourable world wide spotlight (good for Tourism and world wide recognition) back onto specifically England? And if the subject of many Non-english people comes up they will often be referred to as British if successful, but Welsh or Scottish if not.
Furthermore, this Selective Assimilation of the Three Nations within the term ‘Britain’ (four if you discuss the UK) by the Central London English Establishment appears to be also used to provide Credibility for Business with English Companies such as British Airways (BA), British Telecom (BT), British Gas, British Aerospace (BAE), British Petroleum (BP), the British Film Industry, the British Media (although No Celtic Nations Countries are also Allowed to Use the 'British Tag' in order to Promote their Companies Nationally & Internationally), amongst many others. Also in the Media with shows like ‘Britain's got talent’ or highlighting the "British" (English) Royal Family or Class Structure in such shows as 'Downton Abbey' or the 'The Crown' (including numerous Films such as 'The Queen' for example) being promoted as British, which Implies the Collective efforts, Reputation, Personalities and populations of Three Nations in order to possibly Sell English their Brand Commercially on the Wider World Markets, of course the Sellers and therefore the Benefactors will be the London based Business & Media. This Analogy could also be likened to ‘Team GB’ in the 2012 Olympics (any Olympics provides a world spotlight on Britishness so gives the opportunity to further project the perception of unity on the world stage), again portraying the Image of a Unified Britain working as Friends and Equal’s with London Fairly Democratically Settled at its Heart (whilst also using the talent of the Celtic Nations to further increase their medal tallies and promote England as the main UK Nation), even though normally away from the intense mass world media spotlight of the Olympics the three Nations of Britain have their own individual sporting national teams. Furthermore, there also appears Evidence that The English Establishment have almost Hijacked the term British to Describe themselves and also the Union Jack. In an attempt, possibly, to move away from any perceived 'Negative Baggage' associated with the name England and the St.George Cross flag, almost a possible Re-branding of England to Disengage from their Colonial Past? Indeed, when the English do want to try to 'Laugh at Themselves', or give the impression of being 'Self Deprecating', they tend to again use the term British, as it Minimises any Direct Negative Association to themselves specifically (Dilutes), 'Brits Abroad', 'Racism in British Football' for example. As the term Sheep Shagger is directly aimed at Welsh people specifically, it is not aimed at the so called "British" as one vague homogenous group of Nations.
Moreover, Quite Disturbingly in Today’s Modern World (2016) with the perceived threat of terrorism (remember, one man’s terrorist maybe another man’s freedom fighter?) it does appear very telling that the London Based English UK Wide Media appear to promote terrorists that Derive from England as 'British'? Describing these people as British appears to Divert the Attention Away from the Obvious but possibly Embarrassing Question that must be asked by Some English Communities (& the London English Establishment as a Whole) of themselves, and that is ‘Why are so many English people willing to Lay Down their Lives to Destroy their Own Birth Country’? No Welsh, Scottish or Northern Irish Born Person has Ever Bombed or Attacked their 'Own Birth Country'. What Environment is Possibly being created in Some areas of England that incubates such Hatred of their own Nation and Culture? A further possible Unexplored Contributing Factor could be the use of the Commonly used term in the London based apparent English Establishment Controlled British Media and Politicians, of Britain being a 'Tolerant Society'. Quite clearly, you only Tolerate something you do not want, as Clarified by the Oxford English Dictionary, to Tolerate - 'To Allow the Existence or Occurrence of (Something One Dislikes or Disagrees with) Without Interference'. To Suggest (or Infer) to Another Human Being that they are Merely 'Tolerated' (Not Welcome, even though they may have been born in that Country) is Clearly Disrespectful and as a 'Basic Starting Point' appears to Send Out a Strong Message of Resentment and Otherization (would You like to be merely 'Tolerated' in any setting you were in?...). Yet this Constant 'Catchphrase', of Britain is a 'Tolerant Society' continues through Mainstream Politicians and the London based British Media, which appears to Clearly Divide the UK into the 'Tolerated' (Bad Minority) and the 'Tolerant' (Good Majority)?!
However, when appearing to Hide behind the apparent Ambiguous term of 'British' (remember England can even be described as a different Race & Ethnic group to that of the other Celtic Home Nations, so the so called 'British' appear to certainly Not be all One group of people with similar Cultures, Ancestry, Attitudes & Histories, see 'What is Britishness' Above) obvious Questions and Anomalies may never have the Opportunity to be Fully Examined and Explored in an Honest and Open Manner, and therefore a Solution to the Problem may Never be Properly Sought or Concluded. It is quite pertinent to note that quite recently (to this text being created) in 2013 in Kenya, a shopping mall had been attacked, it is suggested that a lady from London England nick named the ‘White Widow’ was the mastermind behind the attack. However, this attack (like many others since and no doubt the many to follow) could have been an Appropriate Opportunity to Hold a Full and Frank Debate Open Public on Why it is that an apparent Significant and Disproportionate Proportion of Specifically English Born people ('Per Capita', as compared to population) appear to hold such Strong Anti-western Views. It could just be that England has more Muslims than the other Celtic Home Nations, and that London (the 'Capital of England') is seen as the Epicentre of Britain? However, I Suppose this apparent obvious 'Avoidance Scenario' would be like Sweden (For Example) possessing a possible issue with Indigenous radical terrorists coming out of their Country, but Describing any terrorists as 'Scandinavian'. When making this possible statement then Sweden would have just Confused the Issue and therefore Complicated any Possible Answers, by Hinting (to Avoid any Direct National Embarrassment) that it may be any One of Three Nation's, Norway, Denmark or Sweden (the Scandinavian Countries) that has the Main Specific Issue?...
These numbers of so called 'Active' terrorists do not appear to be historically evident as much from the Celtic Home Nations Communities ('per Capita', when comparing numbers to size of population) as the Celtic Nations have Never been Intentionally Directly Attacked (the Glasgow attacker, Bilal Abdulah who was English Born in Buckinghamshire, in 2007 was apparently heading towards Leeds and was cornered by the UK Police in Glasgow Airport) and No 'Genuine' (born & raised) Celtic Home Nations person has Ever 'Actively' Carried out a Direct terrorist attack in the UK. To Further Clarify, the so called Far Right Attacker of the Finsbury Park Mosque in London 'Darren Osborne' (2017), was an Englishman Born & Raised in 'Western Super Mare' (England) who just Happened to be Located in Wales at the Time. Again the Simple Answer may be because the Celtic Home Nations have Less Muslims, with Drastically Smaller Population's than England (& therefore Less Opportunity for Radicalisation) who may also be further seen as just 'Fringe Players' within the UK Power Hierarchy, or Alternatively it could be that the Celtic Home Nations as Fellow Minority groups in the UK have a Predominantly Natural Empathy to other associated Minority groups, and as a result may operate under a slightly more Respectful and Welcoming (Not Tolerant, to tolerate is to not want it there but you have to put up with it) Framework, a framework that if Researched and Identified (through a Review or Inquiry) could be replicated by England (and through their Media)? But in Not Opening this Subject Area Up for Serious Honest and Open 'Public' Debate, or a Public Review and Inquiry (When your Open and Honest you Usually Find that People are Open and Honest in 'Return'), and Instead Opting to try to Downplay and Hide this Obvious Anomaly through historically describing any terrorists coming out of England as British (to apparently Minimise any Embarrassment and avoid specifically England being possibly perceived Internationally as an incubator for extremism?), who are English citizens born & raised in England, Disproportionately wanting to hurt their Own Nation and People (birth place) a 'Learning Opportunity' may well be being 'Continuously Avoided' (due to being slightly Embarrassed?). Surely with such a Serious Subject Matter where Peoples Lives are at stake 'All Avenues' Need to be Explored regardless if anyone feels embarrassed or not, as it appears that No other Source is Offering any other Original Options or avenues for Genuine Answers at this point (2016)? You can only get an honest in-depth answer if you approach the subject in an honest and in-depth manner.
When asking these Difficult and Awkward Questions to Establish 'Why' these possible scenarios may exist in an Honest, Humble and Genuinely Inquisitive manner with NO Underlying Agenda (so Look at your own Side of the Street First for Explanation & Answers, not seeking as a First Response to Avoid, or Cover Up Blame and possible Embarrassment), then People and Resources can be put into Specific Areas, along with the Motivation to Embrace a much needed Change of 'Approach' and 'Attitude' towards Minority UK Groups (mainly through the British Media) to Counter these Thought Processes Developing at Source (which needs to start from the so called Top Down, remember that apparently 'A Fish Rots from the Head Down'). But yet again this English woman in Kenya, Born and Raised in London has been described as 'British' not specifically English, and yet again the 'Obvious' but Embarrassing Questions do Not appear to have been Asked by the English Establishment (we must all remember that being slightly Embarrassed or Uncomfortable in the Search for Genuine Answers is of Nothing when Compared to Peoples Lives!). As a Result the Situation of predominantly Indigenous English born people turning to extremism out of the UK Looks Certain to Remain Unchecked and Ongoing, unless 'All' Possible Avenues for Answers and Explanations are Explored leaving all sensitivities and propaganda aside, whether those avenues are Awkward, Embarrassing or Uncomfortable for the central English Establishment or not. Indeed it could be argued that they Need Exploring Because they may be Awkward, Embarrassing and Uncomfortable (sometimes, 'Pain is the Biggest Motivator to Change'), Ignoring or Hiding something never makes it go away, indeed when a person ignores (avoids) a situation it tends to only get worse.
'BRAINSTORMING' OTHER ASSOCIATED AREAS REGARDING THE WELSH RELATIONSHIP WITH ENGLAND
Moreover, in this some what 'Unusual UK Structure' where by 'Four Individually Internationally Recognised Nations' have been Historically Forced to 'Fully' Create just One Supposed Singular Country (as an apparent Result of Colonialism & Empire). This then appears to Place Wales (& the other UK Celtic Nations) at an apparent Unequal 'Sub State' Level within the UK, which is to say, 'a Subdivision of a State, Nation or Country, 'Within a Larger Political Entity', with Varying Degrees of Autonomy Depending on Context' (Oxford English Dictionary). Therefore making any possible 'Nationalistic Tendencies' within the UK significantly more 'Damaging' than if it were Between Separate Independently Managed Countries (Particularly when One Nation has so much More Systemic Power and Population than the Others)? (see 'Wales in Purgatory?' in heading above for some possible ongoing Bias examples?). As there seems to be an Inherent Underlying Traditional Central London English Establishment (Anglo-Saxon) 'Nationalism' within Britain (although it is Normal to have Pride in Your Own Nation, but Not when it's to the Detriment of Others), which is the Dictionary 'Version' of Nationalism Based on 'Favour' or 'Unfair Bias' (Using their Historical Dominance of the UK to Primarily Favour their Own Nation) to the Exclusion or Detriment of Other UK Nations (English Oxford Living Dictionary). However, this well known Dictionary Defined 'Favour Version' of Nationalism is 'Never Highlighted' on the London British Media (there are Specifically 'Only Two Versions' of Nationalism in any Recognised Dictionary, the 'First one' Based on 'Favour of your Own Nation', and 'Second' Based on 'Independence'), whilst the London English Establishment Simultaneously at the Same Time appear to Constantly Publicly Present Themselves as Dedicated Unionists? An English Nationalism that then Seems to Filter Down to Some Sections of their English Population, which appears to also then Extend a Negative Perception of 'Other Nations' & 'Peoples', as possibly Evidenced with Brexit? Apparently Further Evidenced with the Fact that there are No Right Wing Nationalist Political Parties (such as 'UKIP', the 'BNP' or the 'EDL', along with people like 'Nigel Farage' who appears to be the Embodiment of Negative English Nationalism, as a few apparent examples) in any of the other Celtic UK Nations, only England? (See p55 of the Free Electronic Book above under 'The apparent Contradiction of the English Establishment?' section). It appears that the Difference Between any possible English or Celtic Nationalism within the UK is that Celtic Nationalism revolves around Independence (the Need for 'Change', Forced to Seek a More 'Equal Future'), but English Nationalism appears to Revolve around Maintaining all the Historical Advantages of the Traditional Colonialist UK System, the 'Status Quo' ('No Change', whilst Constantly appearing to be Looking Back to Relive the 'Past' Glories of Empire)?
To Clarify, although Henry the 7th (1447-1509) was Born in an English held castle in Wales (too English parents), when King (through his English bloodline) he quickly forgot any Welsh association. Actually it was his Son Henry the 8th (Born in London, with all the following Royal Tudor Line Born in England) that Fully Annexed Wales in 1542. In fact, although the Tudor Name can be traced back to North Wales, the Tudor Name had already been Conquered and 'Submitted' to England (through Tudur Hen 1278, Click for Link) with the invasion by Edward the 1st, 'Longshanks'. Owain Tudur (the grandfather of Henry the 7th) Anglicized his name to become Owen Tudor. The Tudor (Tudor Rose) Emblem is made up of the Red Rose of Lancaster and the White Rose of York, both places in England, united after the English Civil War (War of the Roses), and have nothing to do with Wales. So to say that the Tudor Dynasty was Welsh is a bit of a stretch to say the least, but I can understand why London would want to promote this narrative in more recent times to try to infer that Wales had some sort of say in the corridors of Power based in London (which they Evidently did Not), remember that the History of the Conquered always gets Written by the Conqueror.
So does the British Empire Still Exist? Well Yes, but as it 'Always Was' in the Beginning (before being 'Rebranded' by London), the English Empire. But as 'History appears to Demonstrate' as with most previous Empires, the Power and Expansion seems to go Round in a Full Circle, with Each Layer Peeling Back Over Time, and then Eventually Coming Round to the Beginning. Apparently suggesting that in the End, as in the Beginning, there maybe just England remaining (in the Absence of a Modern Genuine Equality), even then in the Continued Absence of Genuine Equality from Central London, England could then run the risk of breaking up Internally (with Yorkshire & Cornwall as apparent existing factional examples within England, indeed Cornwall with its Celtic background could end up amalgamating with one of the other Celtic Nations)?
So 'When Do' do the English Establishment Finally 'Move On' from Empire (which can Never be done Again due to World Wide Mechanisms put in place such as the UN & the Emergence of New Superpowers) and Embrace a New Modern Britain 'Moving On' into the Future, with Each Recognised Celtic Nation Treated as Equal Partners and not as Historic Colonial Servants to be Restricted and Exploited, as this Constant Traditional Colonialist English Nationalistic Attitude Drives Division and Ultimately Celtic Independence. Perhaps the most 'World Wide Public Example' of the London English Establishment Authorities Historical Nationalism in the UK (Apart From the Easily Evidenced London English Establishment Systemic Bias & Restrictions Within the UK, see 'Wales in Purgatory?' heading above for some examples), is the Central London English Establishment's Historic Insistence on Separate International Sporting Teams (England Creating their own Nations Sports Teams 'First' with the other UK Nations then Having to Follow Suit) Representing and therefore 'Differentiating' and 'Separating' the Various Nations within the UK. Obviously making Success for each Nation more Difficult on the World Stage as the 'Representative Available Pool' is then Split Four Ways (the Only Country in the World that has Separate National Sporting Teams!)? Although 'All Nationalism' Whether through Subtle 'Systemic' 'National Favour' (the English Establishment 'Version' within the UK) or 'Overt' Well Publicised 'National Independence' (the Celtic 'Version') is 'Toxic' Within a Union of Recognised Nations (as it Creates a 'Them & Us' Culture). Nonetheless in order to provide a Fair and Balanced Society Both Forms of Nationalism must be Equally Highlighted and Available for Debate, as they appear to be 'Strongly Interconnected' (Only Telling Half the UK Story by Only Focusing Negatively on Celtic Independence Nationalism (as Divisive), Without Acknowledging your Own Version of Nationalism (which is just as Divisive), can Never be Acceptable)!? However, it does seem Reasonable to Suggest that the Most Powerful Dominant Majority Leading Nation Within any Union Should be the Ones with the Responsibility of Setting the Equality Example? As in order to try (if the Motivation actually Exists as it will Require Giving up Some Powers and Advantages to Create Equality) to Unify and Develop an all Inclusive Core 'British Identity', 'Actions Speak Louder than Words', just Saying your a Unionist Without Evidenced Actions and Systems Backing that Up, in Today's Internet World that can Now Publicly Platform Inequality and Bias, Counts for Very Little...
Many governments are reluctant to define poverty as it may highlight issues or undermine them, the most rounded definition of 'Poverty' may be the World Dank Organisation, 'The most commonly used way to measure poverty is based on incomes. A person is considered poor if his or her income level falls below some minimum level necessary to meet basic needs. This minimum level is usually called the "poverty line". What is necessary to satisfy basic needs varies across time and societies. Therefore, poverty lines vary in time and place, and each country uses lines which are appropriate to its level of development, societal norms and values." The World Bank Organisation.So Poverty is relative to your location or society depending on the national average (in the UK, the UK average), as London have split poverty into Absolute (not meeting basic needs) or Relative poverty (not the same as national UK average), but they are still both Poverty, but now statistically separated, so lowering the poverty rates (Statistics) in one foul swoop. Moreover, UK poverty can be easily disguised by London Subtly trying to compare poverty in some African countries for example, to the UK, but poverty is relative to the country you live in, so most people who are in poverty in the UK may compare poverty to other countries examples (which could be relatively normal in that country), so do not know, that even though they cannot afford the basics (Food Banks), or to be able to participate in society fully because of lack of money, they feel that they are not in poverty (or cannot complain in all good conscience to being in poverty) because of the comparisons they may naturally make to what they see on TV? So Without an All Encompassing Definitive Definition of Poverty, All Poverty can be seen as on the Same Sliding Scale of Measurement across all Countries and Societies, regardless of Location, which appears to Minimise the Devastating Affects of Relative Poverty for Billions of people across the World (even in so called Wealthy Countries).
In addition, It appears Pertinent to Note at this Point that the Newest Piece of Equality Legislation in the UK (the Equality Act 2010) that Combines previous UK Discrimination Legislation does Not Include 'Discrimination' Based on the Grounds of UK 'Nationality' (although since 2014 the Celtic Nations have since been Identified as a Separate 'Race' to Anglo-Saxon England) or 'Class' (a Person's Social or Economic Status). The Nine Worthy areas Protected are Race, Age, Disability, Gender Reassignment, Religion, Sex, Sexual Orientation, Civil Marriage and Maternity Pregnancy, however Not 'Nationality or Class'. Pertinent as these Omissions of 'Protection from Discrimination' Based on 'Nationality or Class' (the English Establishment Authorities in London Make UK Law) seem to Demonstrate an 'Intent' to Continue to Allow Historical UK 'Discrimination and Bias' Based on a Person's Nationality or Class Hierarchy. Particularly Important in a Country 'Fully' Made Up of 'Four Individually Recognised Nations'?... As UK Business Leaders Fund UK Elections for the Politicians, who then make UK Law for the Businesses to be Less Regulated and Less Taxed (a cosy club)? 'Policy is the shadow big business casts over society' Noam Chomsky.
Moreover, many people have wondered that with so much obvious inequality in the world, why do the masses not react against it? The answer appears to be in 'Maslow's Hierachy of Need'? To Clarify, the average working person must cater for their basic needs which is food, clothing, water, warmth, rest and housing, along with then safety and security. The Capitalist society that we live in ensures that in order to maintain these essentials the average person has to work and focus all their efforts on paying bills, loans and mortgages to maintain these basic needs. Areas such as Self Esteem and Self actualization that are higher up on the Maslow triangle can only be focused on once the basic needs are permanently met and secured. This might account for many of the the prominent thinkers in history coming from wealthy backgrounds or with wealthy sponsors, permanently securing their basic needs allowing them time to think, as a Christian my needs are met, but as this is not a theological text no explanation is required.
London appear to create the Narrative through their Media of an Imbalance in wealth in Wales between the North and the South, pitting North against South with the age old tactic of 'Divide and Conquer', saying that the South get all the money and power and the North get nothing. To 'Deflect Responsibility' for any uneven wealth in Wales away from London who hold the Historical Purse Strings to create a direct Motorway and Railway Link Connecting North and South Wales through the Spine of Wales (if they wanted too), to spread any Welsh wealth through the whole of Wales to help solve this problem (even though Wales as a whole is comparably poor), with England further solving their own North South divide through their new HS2 (High Speed Rail) Rail Link, along side the already existing extensive Rail and Motorway Network Links between the North and South of England.
The Historically Exploitation of other peoples acquired land's resources evidenced even within Wales (indeed the initial Celtic nations subjugation created the Blueprint for England's later Colonial actions Worldwide), with individually owned and run Wealthy Royal appointed English Landowners, Baron Penrhyn, Click for Link from Liverpool (the peerage of Ireland & the UK in 1783 & 1866), then this Land being handed down through their generations, regards Profits of Welsh Slate for example (Always 'Follow the Money' to Find the 'Source of Exploitation'), along with other further individual examples including Welsh Coal, Lime and Iron that Fueled the Industrial Revolution.
Although, this perceived Ineffectiveness from Welsh Politicians to Improve Welsh Prosperity or even just Defend Wales against Derogatory Racial Slander (Bestiality) may well result in the Wider Welsh Public Questioning the point of a Welsh Assembly, and as a Consequence may even Risk the Continued Long Term Future Existence of this apparent Valuable and Hard Fought Resource? (It Is Not Enough for Welsh Politicians Just to be Happy to be There, Becoming a Politician is 'Not' the End of your Journey, it is just the Beginning!!...). In response, it does appear Self Evident that the some what Unexplored World regarding the process of 'How' these Welsh Politicians, who Should be a Strong Competent Voice for Wales, are 'Selected as Candidates', Needs to be more 'Transparent and Inclusive' so the average person can publicly see a Clear Route to being a Politician. As obviously if a Candidate is Mysteriously put Forward by the Nameless Faceless people in the Background (by their London Superiors for Mainstream Political Parties in Wales) for a Seat in Wales and for Wales in the UK Parliament , then because most Seats in Wales are Mainstream London Political Party 'Safe Seats' they will be Elected, as who ever is put forward as a candidate for a particular mainstream London based party will win regardless of ability or talent (People tend to Vote for the Party Not the Person, as all Mainstream London Political Parties have full British Media Support, the Others Do Not). In Essence then again Far From Being a Democratic process, it appears that who ever (the anonymous people behind the scenes) has chosen that person for the Safe Seat has essentially Autonomously Chosen that areas Democratically Elected Representation (Candidates should be Put Forward by the Public and Voted for using New Technology Online Before they even become Considered as up for a Final Selection Group, to then be Voted on again online, before a Final Candidate is reached as an Official Candidate for a Mainstream Political Party in any Formal Election)?!... As at Present Welsh people as a Whole can Elect a representative but they Cannot Select one(Can Elect but Not Select?). As predominantly the Quality of Politician that Wales have produced over the years (their Representation) is Quite Clearly Lacking, since Many of them seem 'Sensitive' and 'Precious' Unable to even Stand Up for Themselves, let alone for their Nation?!... Common Sense, Natural Confidence, and the Ability to Think on their Feet (Quick Wit), with the Basic Capacity to possess the 'Courage' to Engage with and Publicly Explore the often Delicate and sometimes even Embarrassing 'Wider Issues' that have Historically & Continuously Blocked and Hindered Welsh Prosperity 'As A Whole' over the Decades (if not Centuries), would be an acceptable Basic Starting Point (Not just attention by successive MP's & AM's on Only their Basic Day to Day Narrow Personal or Constituency Interests, if you really want Improve the Life's of your Constituencies then Focus on the Bigger Picture).
Basic Common Sense appears to make it 'Self-Evident' that the Historically 'Poor Welsh Economy' and Constant 'Racial Slander' can be Directly 'Linked' to the UK Media Enforced Association with a 'Disrespectful', 'Rude', & 'Debauched' Racial Lie. This Racial Slander appears to Create a 'Less Than Favourable' Wider World Public 'Image' (Wales Has A Serious Imposed Image Problem)!. As Common Sense appears to Dictate that many people might be Instinctively 'Put Off' (& Judging by the Fact that Wales has Less Tourism than anywhere else in the UK seems to be a major Factor?) Visiting, Studying or Investing in a Place where they have Heard that the People and their Nation are apparently Portrayed as being Ridiculed, Weak or even Sexual Deviants?... (Racial and National Slander is almost like getting a Solid & Permanent One Star on 'Trip Advizor' with Permanent Negative Feedback, as Slander of a Nations Reputation provides an overall Negative Image of that place, even before Tourists look into individual Welsh Destinations?). Which 'Must' Directly Impact 'Welsh Tourism', look at the Power we all place on Other Peoples Perceptions of a place through resources such as 'Trip Advizor' (Tourism Worth a Potential 'Additional' £Billions of Pounds Annually for Wales), which as a Direct Consequence Negatively Impacts Welsh Peoples Overall Potential Prosperity (Wales Consistently has the Least Tourism in the UK)!.. To Clarify, when a Person (Tourist) does some Natural Internet Research (& Social Media Inquiries or Sometimes even through Direct Word of Mouth, as We All Do when Deciding Where to Visit) on Wales as a place to Spend their Precious Time, Effort and Money to Visit or Not (when in the UK), and when Further Considering all the other Viable Alternatives in the UK, with Scotland 'Predominantly' being Known For having Braveheart, England their Monarchy and Northern Ireland Linked into Ireland's History of struggle with Empire, and Welsh people Known for Sheep Shagging (Bestiality)? Remember that a Brand or an Image is 'What people say about you when your Not in the Room'. As a Consequence of this Constantly 'Unchallenged' English Establishment Media Lie regarding the Welsh people this 'CRUDE' Negative Propaganda (Indeed Considered by Many as One of the Crudest Racial Slander Terms in the World) would be One of the 'First' things that will 'Eventually' Come Up on a World Wide Google Search, or even on Social Media Conversations Regarding Wales and the Welsh People. Making Wales being 'Predominantly' Known for Bestiality. But 'Most Importantly' with this Slander Term Remaining Publicly 'Unchallenged' as a Lie, People may Only Assume that it is a True Reflection of all Welsh People and Wales??!...
Although, judging by the recent Official London Proposed 'UK Internal Markets Bill (2020)', regarding Brexit (as an Example), that London are even Officially Publicly Contemplating using (as an apparent Threat to the EU in Negotiations, which essentially could be seen as a Tool of Black Mail, do what we want or we will do this, and then to 'Amend it after it is Not Needed, or if it did Not Work, or there are any Direct Unintended Negative International Consequences', to then try to save Reputation afterwards, which Provides a Unique Public 'Snap Shot' into the Inner workings of how London operate). However, even Seriously Publicly Contemplating, and Intentionally Preparing the Necessary Legislative Tools to Break International Law, if Required, means that the International Damage has already been Done, which by London's Own Admission Breaks International Law, as with many Laws, just the Intent to Break the Law, and then Equipping Yourself with the Necessary Tools to Break that Law, is in itself a Criminal Offence (which is Unprecedented as London Usually just Deny or Ignore, but Uniquely this time the other side also have their Own Unimpeded Independent Media to highlight any illegal or immoral activity, unlike between the Four UK Nations, with the Easily Evidenced London Media Monopoly). As the Proposed Internal Markets Bill (2020) goes against what London had previously agreed with the EU, so Reneging on their word (indeed, if London feel they can do this with the Powerful EU with No Consequences, Imagine what they can do, and have done, to the Celtic Nations, who London effectively Control, and who have NO fully Independent Mainstream Media to Highlight any Historic or Ongoing Injustice). Although, I suspect that the International Community, through International Laws such as Democratic Consent, and Free Speech through the Media (for Example) will have Different Ideas, and Ultimately will Prevail, as London is now in Greater Isolation in the World through leaving the EU which reduces London's power to influence from the inside, and particularly as the World is now a smaller place with the advent of the Internet, as Evidence can now be provided Unimpeded to the World. At this point I would like to Formerly Welcome the International Community into the Celtic Nations World, if only for a 'Brief Moment', with London in Westminster, and therefore England, under the Guise of the UK, acting 'Unilaterally' Without Other Internationally Recognised Nations Consent, a Habit and Mindset that appears to have been fully formed with the Celtic Nations over the Centuries, to this Day, which can be Easily Evidenced, and is Well Documented, a well established, English 'them and us' Nationalism (Anglo-Saxon), not just with all the other countries around the World, but also with the Celtic Nations, within the so called London Branded United Kingdom, with a constant Esily Evidenced favourable bias towards their own Nation or Race, meaning that at this point the idea of the UK staying together would be almost next to impossible unless their is a significant change in London's attitude and mindset, its like treating your partner constanty unfairly in a marriage, but then still expecting them to stay with you, particluary as now force cannot be used to ensure compliance, due to bigger world powers now taking prominance.
Again, using the Power of that Scarce Commodity of 'Common Sense' for a Moment, do you Think that this Crude Historic Negative Public Propaganda Labelling 'Helps or Hinders' Wales's Selling Potential to Overseas 'Would Be' Tourists (or even Internally within Britain) in a Tourist Industry Worth a Potential additional '£Billions of Pounds' to the Welsh Economy as Demonstrated in other UK Nations (Wales Historically & Consistently has the Lowest Tourism numbers in the UK?), with Wales already Historically the Poorest Nation in the UK, with some of the Poorest areas in Europe!?... Tourism Being Vital to Every Economy in the World (Even the Wealthy One's) as it is Worth an Additional £Billions Annually for Each Nation. Again using that Scarce Commodity of 'Common Sense', surely there must be a Plausible Reason why Wales 'Continuously' and 'Historically' has Significantly 'Less Tourism' than Anywhere Else in the UK, as Wales has just as Beautiful Scenery, Coastline and Interesting History as any other part of the UK? Indeed Northern Ireland and Scotland also do not own their own UK Media to Publicise Themselves but still do well regarding Tourism? Furthermore, Regarding Diaspora's (Descendants Living Abroad) Ireland, Scotland and Wales have relatively Similar Small Populations (Scotland approx 5 Million, Ireland approx 5 Million and Wales approx 3 million), actually Northern Ireland (a Nation that also has more Tourism than Wales) only has 1.8 million population.
Clearly the Children of Wales today are the Welsh Adults of the Next Generation and Directly Represent the Economic and Social Future Prospects for Wales (If you Tolerate this 'Derogatory Labelling' now, then your Children and Grandchildren Will be Next). To Ensure a Bold, Confident Wales that can Thrive and Prosper in the Modern World that has become a lot Smaller because of Technology, this Slander term needs to be pushed against at every turn using the 'Power of the Truth' (The Oxford English Dictionary Definition of the term 'Truth' is stated as, 'That Which is True or in Accordance with Fact or Reality') to Help Mitigate any Form of possible Shame or Discomfort Developing for Simply Just Happening to be Welsh!!... Through also Implementing the Various Pieces of Law that already Exist in the UK Designed to Promote British Unity, such as the Race Relations Act 1976 & Equality Act 2010 (as well as Laws in 'Europe' & 'UN International Laws' to Prosecute Racist's & Liar's on a Hierarchical Scale). Although the 'Motivation' to Directly Prosecute or Financially Support Welsh Citizens to Implement Existing National & International Laws through Welsh Authorities Needs to be Present from within Wales. The ability to Prosecute for Racial Slander may be Achieved by providing the the Financial Ability for all 'Welsh Citizens' to Prosecute 'British Media' Figures and their Companies for Racial Slander, 'to Include All Welsh Resident Ethnic and Minority Groups', through Access to an all Wales Citizen's 'Cultural Defence Legal Fund' (CDLF) to Create a Financial 'Bridge' from 'Person to Legislation', as Free 'Legal Aid' is usually always Not allowed for Slander Cases in the UK (See 'How can Wales be Improved' under 'What is Britishness' heading above for more Detail on a CDLF). Otherwise the Law and UK Justice System could be seen as at Best Ineffective and Only available to the Wealthy, but at Worst simply paying 'Lip Service' and being Complicit to Negative Racist Stereotyping and Abuse (as well as any Associated Discrimination and Inequality), and therefore even appearing to Condone it?!...
In order to Finally Change this Historic Outward Public Image an advertising campaign Needs to Address the Welsh Sheep Shagger Bestiality Lie Directly But on Wales' Terms, Finally Taking the Power of the Slander Away, but in a Subtle manner that Demonstrates Wales as the Honest Minority Stoic people Not getting Bitter in the Face of Constant Racial Slander, being Historically Oppressed by the apparent Powerful Nasty Dishonest Nameless Faceless Elites in London (the Same Historic Narrative as Scotland & Ireland), with a Slogan for Wales being (for example) of 'For the Truth Seekers' (as who does not seek the Truth?). Let's be Honest all Other Expensive Advertising Campaigns Promoting Wales, although even Cinematically Great, have Consistently and Ultimately 'Failed' in Raising Tourism Numbers (in Fact Tourism and Tourist Spending Figures in Wales have Continuously and Historically Stagnated or Gone Down when Compared to the Rest of the UK's Tourism Figures which have Continued to go Up Significantly. Tourism is an Important part of many Countries Economies, even the Wealthy Ones. Unless the Welsh People Rewrite the Externally Imposed National and International Narrative of Wales they will Continue to Suffer Less Prosperity, and the Subtle but Ultimately Destructive Psychological Impact of Constant Crude Slander. This 'Unique Historic Welsh Problem' in the UK, of Lack of Tourists (Overseas Students & Business) appears Directly Because the Overriding Historic UK London Media Imposed Crude Negative Public Narrative Regarding Wales Still Exists Unchallenged... Remember to 'Keep Your Eyes on the Prize' here (the Importance of this Subject Matter) with a Potential Additional £Billions of Pounds Every Year for the Welsh Economy, which would be Crucial to the Historic and Ongoing Ailing Welsh Economy, which appears be the Difference Between Continued Hardship or Relative Wealth for the Welsh People!... To reiterate, the apparent Historic Negative Impact of Racial Slander on Welsh Tourism & Business is Easily Evidenced by the Fact that Wales Historically and Continuously has the 'Least Tourism' out of all the Four UK Nations (& also has the 'Least Private Sector Business Creation, Wealth & Investment', with continuously the Most over Reliance on State Funded Public Sector Jobs in the UK as a Result). As Clarified by the English Establishment Billionaire Businessman 'Richard Branson', 'All You Have In Business Is Your Reputation', and also further Specified by Baltasar Gracian (Spanish Philosopher), 'A Single Lie Can Destroy a Whole Reputation of Integrity'...
It does appear quite Noticeable however, that the 'London Based UK Wide Mainstream National Media's' (in Broadcasting & Print) when mentioning an"Establishment" or an "Elite" in British Society with Ultimate Power in the UK, seem Hesitant to Expose the'Identity', 'Location' and 'Nationality' of these supposed Powerful UK figures? It does seem that Highlighting Specifically the London based 'English Establishment' in the British Mainstream Media, as opposed to continuously pushing the Vague and Ambiguous terms of 'The Establishment', 'British Establishment', 'The Political Class'. 'The Political Establishment', 'The Political Elite' or an 'Elite in Society', which could Highlight, or Confirm that Power and Influence in the UK could be Bias and held Solely in London, possibly only ever Ultimately Favouring their Own Majority tribes Interests, at the apparent Historic & Ongoing Expense of Wales and the other Celtic Home Nations (as apparently Further Evidenced through Comparing England's Vast Income with Wales via Population & Landmass sizes, with England's allocation at £700 Billion a year & the Welsh allocation at £15 Billion a year, see 'Equality Indicator' under 'Wales in Purgatory' Heading Above for more detail). It does appear to be 'OBVIOUS' that In order for Wales to Finally achieve a level of Equality with England in the future, they Must First Begin by Establishing Who are the Historic & Ongoing Enemy to their future Equality & Prosperity in the UK, As Historic & Ongoing Welsh Inequality Does Not Happen 'Accidentally!' it Requires Planning and Forethought (if it did happen Accidentally, then Wales Over the Decades would have had Periods of Inequality and Equality 'Randomly!'). In Essence then, you Cannot Challenge Oppression and Restriction if you Fail to Firstly Identify Who Specifically are apparently Oppressing you!?... However, this may be more Difficult than it First appears as the Cloak of Anonymity Created through Total UK Mainstream Media Dominance (Remember Scandals such as 'English Establishment' Tax Avoidance (2016/17), using British Overseas Territories, were Exposed Outside of the UK Media (the Paradise Files), Not by the UK London Based Media) seems to be the London based 'English Establishments' Most Crucial Strategy. To put in simple terms, if a group of people are doing something possibly Immoral and Underhand in the Shadows (Tax Avoidance for example, with alleged Historic English Establishment Figureheads such as the Queen & Prince Charles exposed in 2017 & David Cameron's (Prime Minister 2010-2016) Family in 2016), placing the Spotlight of Focus on that Group in Society, particularly when operating within a supposed Equal Union, is the last thing they want. Although, with all the Easily Accessible Evidence available(some areas of which highlighted in this literature), the actuality of a London Based English Establishment Historically and Continuously Controlling Wales (to England's best advantage), could quite possibly be the World's 'Worst' best kept secret?!... I suppose Evidencing Welsh Inequality from the English Establishment is like Building a Legal Case against a person who will Not (or Cannot) Ever Admit that they are Guilty?... Still relatively easy to Prove through Evidence and Historic Behaviour Patterns but apparently purposely made more Difficult than it Needs to be in the Absence any Co-operation or Ownership, and with the apparent ongoing Intentional 'Omission' of Salient Facts (through their London Media). Indeed, just to further Highlight, when London Politicians repeatedly State the Term 'In the National Interests' (the Plural would be, 'In the Nation's Interests'), as there are actually Four Internationally Recognised Nations that make up the UK.
It does appear however, to be only Human Nature to want to look after your own first, as it does seem that essentially Every 'London' Based Political Party in 'Britain' can be Described as Essentially an'English Nationalist Party'not just 'UKIP' (Nigel Farage) the Main 'Obvious English Nationalist Party' with their Main Logo as the 'English Lion', although they also apparently pretend not to be (even UK Labour have an 'English Rose' as their main Logo). A Nationalist Party is to say 'Wants What is Best for their Own Nation of England First and Foremost', which again does appear to be a basic human instinct (Acceptable in a Separate Individual Country, although Certainly Not as Part of a Union, the UK), but at least be Honest about it (however, when Obvious Scenario's appear to be Hidden or Purposely Ignored they then seem to take on a more Sinister aspect)!? When referring to the 'English Dictionary Definition' of the term 'UNION' (as in the 'United' Kingdom) it is Stated as 'A Society or Association Formed by People with a Common Interest or Purpose', so anything Not for the Common Purpose of 'Everyone' in that 'UNION', with One Powerful Nation Favouring their Own Interests, appears to Obviously take that Association Out of the Identity of being a 'UNION' into the description of 'NATIONALISM' (and of course the Definition of 'UNION' assumes a group of people 'Initially' coming together through a 'Free Willing Democratic Process, which was Not the case with Britain, with the Act of Union in 1707?...'). Always be minded of the quote from Mohatma Ghandhi when he Stated the Order and Process of Breaking Oppression and achieving Equality (Ironically enough with the same London English Establishment foe), 'First they Ignore you, then they Laugh at you, then they Fight you, then you Win'.
Moreover, It does appear no coincidence that there is a complete Absence of any Mainstream London Political Party that 'Openly' promotes and represents 'English Nationalism'(a 'Mainstream' English Nationalist Party, although there is currently UKIP and the BREXIT Party) in Britain. Similar to the Other Two Nations in Britain, with Wales (Plaid Cymru) and Scotland (SNP), who are Open and Honest regarding their Nationalist Intentions in Britain (and as a Result of Obvious Bias Only Seek Election within their Own Respective Nation's of Wales & Scotland, Not the Whole of Britain)? This absence of an Openly Specific Mainstream 'English Nationalist Political Party' appears to be because the English Nation 'Do Not Need' a Specific Mainstream 'Nationalist Party' to stand up for 'Specifically English Nationalists Interests', or even a Specific 'English Parliament' (the UK Parliament allegedly acts as an English Parliament due to a Miss Match of Votes 650 MP's from England and 117 MP's from all the other Home Nations combined ?). As all the Mainstream London based Political Parties in Britain appear to perform the same function of acting in the 'Best Interests of England' anyway, through the supposed UK (English) Parliament (a Majority Collective of London based mainstream English Nationalist Parties, some more obvious than others, but never openly Nationalist), Obviously, to this end 'England' already has it's 'Own Parliament', it is just that the Westminster London UK Parliament also predominantly controls the rest of the UK as well as itself. As there appears to be an Instinctive underlying Collaborative Mindset between London Based Mainstream Political Parties of coming together when needed to promote areas that advantage England's interest's (and of course as English MP's Vastly Outnumber the Celtic Nations MP's in Westminster, London then this is Easily Achieved, with 650 MP's (Member's of Parliament) for England, 59Scotland, 40 Wales and 18 Northern Ireland),but Collaboratively attacking areas that may Disadvantage England's interest's (using their larger MP numbers in UK Parliament), which appears to be Further Evidenced with the 'Complete Unified Opposition' by all the Mainstream 'London' Based Political Parties to Scottish Independence?!...As losing Scotland would make England Significantly Socially & Politically Weaker and Financially Poorer (Best Interests of England to keep Scotland, not only because Scotland have 'OIL', 'although it does help!'). However, alternatively Independence could ensure Scotland thrives, much the same as the Republic of Ireland, a Country Similar to Scotland in Size, Location and History (who are now one of the Richest Countries in Europe per capita in 2016, Without the Added Bonus of 'OIL') and many other Former Commonwealth Countries (Commonwealth Money all Directed into England, perhaps not so Common or Collective Wealth?) such as the USA, India, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Hong Kong & Singapore (all apparently doing exceptionally well). So it appears that 'All' London Based Parties United as 'One' going against what could be in the Best Interests of Scotland, but DEFINITELY is OBVIOUSLY in the Best Interests of England? Just to Clarify any possible Misunderstanding, Scotland as an 'Historically Fully Internationally Legally Recognised Country/Nation', finally got their 'Independence Referendum' in 2014 (after decades, if not centuries of trying through various avenues) Only because the SNP (Scottish Nationalist Party) managed for the first time ever in Scotland's History to gain the 'Majority Democratic Power' in Scotland since 2007, with an Open and Transparent Agenda of Independence. Previous to this Pivotal event the apparent London based English Nationalist Representative Parties of 'Labour' and 'Conservatives', who were Previously Historically in Power in Scotland, apparently collectively never even put forward as a genuine voting option for Scotland. Even the Regional National Celtic Government Assembly's in 1999 were apparently introduced to appease any Independence talk specifically in Scotland (out of possible Fear of Losing Scotland, and more recently it's 'OIL' as well?).
Perhaps to shed some further light on this area, Britain's Mainstream London based Political Parties, the Conservatives, Labour and Liberal Democrats have representation across all the Three Nations of Britain in the form of Welsh & Scottish 'Conservatives', Welsh & Scottish 'Labour', and Welsh & Scottish 'Liberal Democrats' (2016). These parties appear to be 'Smaller Provincial Wings' of their Main Political Party based in London, who seek the best interests of the Nation they represent (Wales & Scotland) within the limited powers that they are allowed, but still appear controlled Directly from their London Power Hubs (who possess ultimate Power in the UK). This 'National Labelling'must mean then that the Third Nation's mainstream Political representatives in Britain must be 'English Labour', 'English Conservatives' and 'English Liberal Democrats' with their Main Head Quarters all based in London, ultimately seeking the best interests of their own Nation of England (An alleged Nationalist Approach) but the key element being, with all the 'Power' and Influence over Britain and the UK at their Disposal. If these mainstream Powerful London based parties were truly 'Unionist' surely they would just be called 'Conservatives', 'Labour' or 'Liberal Democrats' regardless of what Nation they may be located, in Britain? It appears that there would be No Need to create Smaller Regional Wings of their Political Party (who possess limited power ultimately answerable to their London power hubs anyway) in order to Identify each Nation 'Individually', if the Three Nations in Britain were all truly regarded by Westminster (English establishment) as the same (Equal), which would seem to be a Unionist approach. As opposed to the 'National Labelling' of the mainstream Political Parties around Britain, which would seem to be an Obvious Nationalist approach? It does appear that you can Only Favour your Own once you have Identified & Catagorized who is Yours, and who is the Other?...
In addition, possibly further Evidence of the wide reaching influence of the English Establishment in UK Politics, when only seeming to allow their Own English Associates & Connected Colleagues to Lead their Mainstream London based UK Political Parties, appears to be the Continuous Impressive Performances of the Leaders of the Scottish 'Conservatives' & Welsh 'Labour' within Britain (2017). To Clarify, the Leader of the 'Welsh Labour' Carwyn Jones (a WELSH Person) has consistently been considered to be 'strong & stable', always presenting as a charismatic and effective Leader, as Evidenced with his ongoing success in Wales for Labour over the powerful UK wide Conservative Party through many Elections. Equally the 'strong & stable' Leadership of Ruth Davidson (a SCOTTISH Person) in Scotland Leading her 'Scottish Conservative' party to a revival in Scotland against the majority SNP (Scottish Nationalist Party) through her great wit and proven debating prowess over the past years (including the General Election 2017). Given these Politicians continuous exceptional Performances as Proven Leaders when Compared with the 'Chaotic & Nervous' performances of their Main English London Party Leaders through out the recent years, who also had a lack of any real Leadership experience before given their roles. Then why have these successful Welsh & Scottish Leaders not been offered, by their London based UK Party, or even seriously suggested by the British Media for the role of 'Leader' of their Mainstream British wide Party (Conservatives & Labour) based in London, England?
Surely, all things being Equal (in 2016, although could be any year?), with Valuable Experience of Effective Leadership under pressure and a Proven track record of Success as a Leader within Britain, Ruth Davidson (Scottish Conservative) & Carwyn Jones (Welsh Labour) would be the First choice to eventually Lead their respective UK Parties BASED in London, with the opportunity of then being Prime Minister of Britain, having actually Demonstrated Talent and Ability?! However, it does appear that perhaps an Obvious Welsh or Scottish person Leading an apparent London based English Nationalist Party (the UK Conservatives, Labour or Liberal Democrats) would Not have as their main aim the Best Interests of Specifically England, but maybe the Broader Interests of the UK, which may be Outside of the English Establishment's Interests and Influence? Therefore the Idea of an Obvious Welsh or Scottish person (Not an English person) who maybe outside of the English Establishment Club, Heading a mainstream UK London based apparent English Nationalist Party (Puts the Interest of their Own Country First), and possibly then presenting as Prime Minister of Britain, maybe viewed by the English Establishment(and possibly many of the Majority English UK Voting population?) as a 'Contradiction in Terms'(going Against English National Interests)? Furthermore, it may be argued that if Carwyn Jones & Ruth Davidson had previously Altered their Accents (apparently similar to 'Lord Heseltine' from Swansea for example?) and/or attended English Establishment Private Education as children (like 'Tony Blair') then their National Origins would be more Difficult to Immediately Identify and easier to apparently Intentionally Mask, and therefore the assumption could be by the 'MajorityVoting Tribe' that they were of English Origin (One of their Own)? Perhaps the Fate of Gordon Brown (Scottish) in the 2010 UK Wide 'Modern' General Election & Neil Kinnock (Welsh) in the 1992 UK Wide 'Modern' General Election, who both presented with Strong Accents further Evidences this point, as well as the Absence of any Non-White Prime Ministers (2016)!? ('Modern' is to say After Widespread Media was Invented (TV & Radio) and became Common place in people's home's in the 1930's , which made the spreading of information (propaganda) faster and more affective).
Furthermore, it does seem that when a London associated Political Party or Politician says that the 'Union of the United Kingdom' is better for 'BRITAIN' or 'THE COUNTRY' or 'IN THE NATIONAL INTERESTS' (there are Four Nations within the UK), what they really appear to be saying is that the Union is Best for 'ENGLAND' Only (as Owning and Controlling Three other Celtic Nations Finances & Competitive ability in the UK are the Main Inherited Assets that England Continue to Own, Especially with Scotland having 'OIL', but this Control can also be used to stunt development and potential of the these other UK Nations to prevent independence, 'your to poor to leave'), an apparent 'English Nationalist' approach but Presenting under a 'Unionist' Pretence (Could it be Feasible that some People Lie?). Or even better, ensure the subject matter of apparent Bias towards specifically English Nationalist Interests by the main UK London based Political Parties is not mentioned in the first place (the apparent Continuous 'Omission' of Pertinent Facts), so they do not have to Lie. Easy when apparently the London English Establishment control the Voice of the British Mainstream UK Wide Media, the only real Effective avenue to bring Politicians and Officials to account, through an apparent Socially Connected Members Only Club, which also has the Authority to Prevent Celtic National UK Wide TV Channels being Formed, which is 'Clearly Evidenced Today' (2016), as 'NO' Celtic UK Home Nation has Ever (& apparently will Never) be Allowed to have it's Own UK Wide National Television Channel operating out of, and representing their Own Individual Celtic Nation within the UK (all the Celtic Home Nations are predominantly subject to only the English London Based Media Influence, Crucial when Influencing & Moulding the 'Thoughts' of the UK Wide public as a Whole, by 'Highlighting' or 'Omitting' selective information).
In addition, it seems that the apparent English Establishment London Based 'National' UK Wide Mainstream Media only Promotes UK 'Labour' or 'Conservatives' (with Liberal Democrats & previous to Brexit, UKIP as possible second options), appearing to limit Nationwide 'Publicity' that may suggest that any other Political Parties Outside of London could be Serious Political alternatives For Britain (or the other Celtic home Nations)? Most Authoritarian Countries in the World prevent an Opposition, but in Britain the Central London English Establishment appear to have split their collective into Two Main London based Political Parties. So the Opposition is essentially themselves but with one being slightly more Socially Conscious (Labour) than the other (Conservatives). However, the 'End Result Remains' as they will still be the Same Type of People (English & White primarily Privately or Grammar School Educated, with a Few Tokens) promoting the Same Type of Overall interests (England's)? This London Media No Platforming seems to Starve the Welsh & Scottish Nationalist Parties of the Oxygen of Nationwide Mainstream Publicity and thus Limiting their chances of gaining further parliamentary seats representing their respective Nations in London. As most people may perceive their Local Nationalist party in Wales & Scotland as appropriate for Local issues, but on a Nationwide scale are maybe more 'Media Influenced' to assume that the three mainstream parties based in London are more appropriate for the wider British concerns, and vote differently in Local & General elections to reflect this possible Media bias? A position already weakened if you consider that in any Election in Scotland or Wales, the One Welsh (Plaid Cymru) or One Scottish Nationalist party (SNP) will be Directly Opposed by the Three Mainstream apparent English Nationalist Parties with all their Resources and UK Mainstream Wide Media Influence (Labour, Conservatives & Liberal Democrats) within elections in the UK Nations of Wales & Scotland. Additionally, the idea of 'Plaid Cymru' or the 'SNP' Running for Election in England would be 'Laughable', an therefore totally unacceptable by the English Establishment, as they are both seen by the Majority English public (& English Establishment) as Political Parties based in Wales or Scotland, so would Obviously be Perceived as Naturally Biased in Favour of their Own particular Home Nations Interests (Wales or Scotland). However, the Three Mainstream London Based Political Parties (Conservatives, Labour with an English Rose as their Logo, the Liberal Democrats, and even smaller London based political parties such as UKIP, who have an English Lion as their Logo) with Obvious English Affiliations, have Historically Run for Election in Wales and Scotland as well as England (the Whole of Britain). Although, No One appears to Point Out the Same Obvious Natural Bias or Affiliation apparently Inherent within these London (England) Based Mainstream Political Parties, when they Run for Election in Scotland or Wales (though Again the British Mainstream Media may play a role in Not Highlighting this Obvious Unbalanced Anomaly)? Moreover, with the current UK Political Structure (2016) apparently stacked against the indigenous Nationalist parties in Scotland and Wales, 'Three Against One' (not including UKIP as well) in any Local & General elections in Scotland & Wales, coupled with the possible Control of the UK National London based UK Wide Mainstream Media's (automatically Viewed in Wales & Scotland) in Favour of the three Mainstream London based Political parties (aginst any so called Nationalist Parties in Wales & Scotland0, not to mention the Unfair Democratic Voting System in the UK which appears Rigged in Favour of the Largest Population, 'Which Just Happens to be England?!...' (see 'Nation Specific Criteria' Below), the recent success of the SNP in Scotland appears almost 'Incredible'?!...
Alternatively, we can look at Inequality in the UK in a different way,as it seems that the English Establishment's London based Political System continues to apparently 'ACT' with 'English Nationalist Actions' but Pretend to be 'Unionist' by 'WORDS' (Judge people by their Actions Not their Words). So What are the Advantages for the English Establishment to want to be 'Publicly Seen' as a Unionist Nation(doing what is best for each Nation Equally in the UK) and not allowing themselves to be publicly acknowledged as a Nation that may only have its Own Specific Nations Interests as their Main and Only Concern (a possible continuous 'Omission' of intent?), at the apparent Expense of the other Celtic Home Nations? Well, since 1945 and the formation of the UN (United Nations), Colonialism (taking peoples land away from them by force) has effectively been 'Outlawed' (with larger powers than England to enforce this ban) as a result other countries owned by a larger country must 'Democratically' prove that they want this control and it is not being Imposed on them against their Democratic will (either Covertly or Overtly). When The English Establishment Promote a Unionist agenda in their Mainstream Media it Implies that the UK is One Family of Equal Democratic Nations with the UK voting system apparently permanently biased in favour of the largest population (England). Allowing the Acknowledgement of the possible Historic Exploitation of the other Celtic Home Nations by the English Establishment to be 'Publicly Confirmed' and Exposed by Themselves(which can only be done by directly Admitting Liability or in a UN (International) Court of Law using Evidence) would be 'POLITICAL SUICIDE' for the English establishment, as this would imply 'Colonialism' (Controlling & Exploiting other countries Covertly or Overtly for Profit) which is Anti-Democratic and would mean that the UN could Intervene. Although, in Not Publicly Acknowledging or Confirming Anything the Central London English Establishment can Occupy the 'AMBIGUOUS' ground using 'PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY' (All this Evidence Could just be Coincidental with No Malice of Fore Thought?). Crucially however, now since early 2016 that Certain Specific 'COINCIDENTAL OVERSIGHTS' have been Publicly Highlighted Worldwide on this Website to Ten's of Thousands of People and Counting (Thank God for New Technology), this then makes the 'PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY' argument 'INCREASINGLY' REDUNDANT 'Over Time', as you can only 'Plausibly Deny' something you Genuinely or Feasibly did not know anything about? When a person is made Aware of Something that Previously they may have Denied or Failed to Acknowledge, then in 'Not Acting' on that 'New Information' moving forward can Evidence that that person is 'Now Consciously' Aware of Inequality & Discrimination Concerns and is Consciously not doing anything about it (A possible 'Act of Omission' under UN Human Rights Law?). The only Conclusion that can be drawn to a person(s) who appears to 'CONSCIOUSLY KNOW' Inequality & Discrimination is happening but still 'Allows' it to happen and/or Not actively Mention anything, must be that it is Acknowledged, Excepted and Condoned (or even created) by that Person(s)?However, it may just be easier to NO PLATFORM any UK issues (through their London UK Media) that way any concerns can just be permanently ignored with no Justifications or Denials even required. Although the Idea that the English Establishment are Not Aware of Celtic Inequality & Discrimination in their Own Managed Lands with total Control and Oversight of all 'UK Technology & Internet', Law, Tax, Business, Finance as well as apparently the whole UK Mainstream British Media, and with the Devolved Celtic Nations Government's Regularly Publicly Highlighting their Concerns since the formation of the Celtic Devolved Governments in 1999 (albeit the English Establishment do control the UK Mainstream Media?), maybe Far Fetched, but again 'Plausibly Deniable' (even when it isn't)? Once again, It does appear that Evidencing Welsh Inequality from the English Establishment is like Building a Legal Case against a person who Can never Admit any Liability.
However, there are many pieces of even recent Evidence (let alone an apparent mountain of Historic Evidence) not just'Speculation', that is happening Now (2016), that can Substantiate claims that the UK Celtic Nations are being Railroaded Against Their Will in an Anti-Democratic manner. Not least of all, 'No' Direct Input being Allowed from the Celtic Home Nations in their 'OWN' Brexit Negotiations of the EU (2016), Denying the 'Democratically Elected Scottish Government' the opportunity to Hold a Second Independence Vote (2017), Taking Scotland & Northern Ireland Out of the EU against their Democratic Will, and the likely 'Power Grab' by the English establishment of Powers coming back from Europe as a result of Brexit (to name but a recent few). Just to Focus Specifically on the likely 'Power Grab' by the English establishment as a result of Brexit for a moment, remember that Wales has a Significantly Different Historic and Ongoing Relationship with 'Europe' as Opposed to the 'English Establishment'. England have 'OWNED' and apparently 'SUBDUED' Wales for Centuries and possess a History of Oppression against Wales throughout this time period, apparently many elements still Evident to this day (England are the Only Country in the World with this apparent Historic and Ongoing Acrimonious History with Wales, so it is quite Ironic and Ominous that of All the Countries in the World to be Ruled By, Wales is Ruled by England!!...).
Perhaps to further highlight the position of the English Establishment taking Scotland and Northern Ireland out of the EU against their Democratic will, as stated above. The suggestion by the English Establishment (Nigel Farage, who went to Boarding school and was a Banker like his Daddy, amongst many others) that Liverpool and London (English Cities that voted remain in the Brexit referendum in 2016) also had to Tow the UK Vote Line, is some what Disrespectful to Scotland and Northern Ireland who are Democratically, Historically and Internationally Recognised as Individual Nations/Countries. The suggestion that a Whole Nation/Country can be Comparable to One Individual City in England further appears to Evidence the'Lower Status'(See 'Otherization' Taylor 2009, under 'Home' Heading Above) within which the English Establishment appear to view the other UK Celtic Home Nations, as Compared to their Own?.... Indeed, Wales (& most other Slandered Minorities across the World) appear to be frequently put into an Unwinnable Situation (Catch 22) by their Majority Slanderers. Where by the Slanderer either attempts to 'Make you the Victim' (through Slander & Discrimination), or they then Accuse you of 'Playing the Victim' when you Challenge or Highlight Discrimination. However, without Challenging the Stereotyping the Victim Tag and Associated Discrimination Cannot be Removed (& so it Continues)??...
In addition, Europe as an Entity have 'No Vested Interest' in Restricting Welsh Economic and Social Growth, as they do not Fear Welsh Independence (or more Powers) that may Increase Competition for England in the UK Market, or have any History of apparent ongoing Animosity & Oppression with Wales (Wales is England's Closest Geographic Neighbour and therefore potentially one of their most Potent possible Social & Economic threats, lower Tax levels for example). As a consequence, these Powers coming back from Europe (remember this Power was Essentially a Partnership Between 'Wales and the EU' with limited direct English Establishment Interference) but then going straight into the hands of the English establishment in London could mean that Wales Loses that 'Neutrality form Europe' when deciding on factors already devolved regarding Welsh affairs (such as Agriculture and the Environment), to be replaced with a possible 'Agenda and Bias Lead Style of Governance'(an Historic Agenda of England's Interest's First, which is Fine if they were a Separate Country but Not as Part of a Union!?) from the English Establishment. This apparent Historic and Ongoing 'Acrimonious Relationship' with Wales (from England their Direct Owners, 'Master & Servant' Association?) could perhaps be the Main Reason Why Wales Needs as much Contact and Interaction with the EU as they can possibly Garner?
Furthermore, if the other Celtic Home Nations had their apparently Obvious Evidenced Suspicions Officially 'Openly & Unambiguously Confirmed', which can only really be done Conclusively by the English Establishment, or Decided in an International Court of Law (by removing the Fog of apparent 'Ambiguity' (Plausible Deniability), which would also categorically 'Acknowledge Accountability', the very action the Fog has been created & designed to prevent?) that the English Establishment were In Fact Historically and Currently Exploiting the Celtic Home Nations in a Continuous Colonial style (2016). Then the Celtic Nations Population, as a Direct Consequence, would then be more Inclined to Democratically Vote in Favour of their Individual Nationalist Parties, away from English Based Political Parties (although see 'Nation Specific Criteria' Heading regarding the current voting system in the UK, Below), as well as a possible massive public outcry from the Celtic Home Nations for Independence from England, with a Concrete Tangible Unambiguous Reason of Exploitation (Which is Why the English Establishment, even Faced with the most Obvious Overwhelming 'EVIDENCE' and Backed into the tightest corner, could never Openly Acknowledge a hand in Specifically English Bias Governance, as well as Historic & Ongoing Celtic Exploitation & Discrimination in the UK?).
As previously mentioned probably the most Vital Inherited Assets that England Continue to Own are the Celtic Home Nations, without them they could be ISOLATED (No Allies) and significantly POORER (Celtic Home Nations would then be able to compete fairly & Unrestricted with rival English companies and also adjust differing tax levels in the UK markets to ensure their own Individual Wealth, and of course Scotland have 'OIL').Hopefully, this has 'Shed Some Light' on Why the English Establishment may 'NEED'to Publicly Project the 'Impression of a Unionist Approach' from their apparent London UK Wide Mainstream Media Power Hubs in the UK, whilst appearing to Continue to Act in a Specifically 'English Nationalist Manner' (mainly achieved through the English Establishment apparently Controlling all Traditional Mainstream Media in the UK to Allow their Unionist Message to be Publicly Broadcast & Circulated (apparently Easier to Exploit someone who is led to believe that you are their Ally?), which also Ensures their Message remains Unchallenged as to it's validity in the UK)?So in Essence then the London Based English Establishment appear to have Created the Scenario for themselves in the UK where they can 'Have Their Cake and Eat It Too' (also known as 'Having the Penny and the Bun'), so allowing themselves 'The Best of Both Worlds (Nationalist & Unionist) within the UK' (Easy to do you may say if you are the most Powerful Force within a specific Union), with the Financial Benefits of a 'Nationalist approach' (Selfish), whilst Hiding Behind a 'Unionist Mask' (Partnership), in an attempt to Disguise any possible English establishment Historic and Ongoing Greed, Bias and Selfishness, and present a unified front to the rest of the World?
However, apparently'Pretending to be 'Unionist' by 'Words' but 'Acting' with 'Nationalist Actions' (Actions Speak Louder Than Words) could 'Unfortunately' be exactly the avenue that leads to the 'Break Up' of the United Kingdom at a more rapid rate, therefore actually acting against England's National Best Interests? To Clarify, England Owning the Other Celtic Home Nations is of Great Advantage to England Both Financially and Politically, Indeed it could be argued that Owning the other Celtic Home Nations is the Greatest Remaining Inherited Advantage that England possess?So to sabotage that Union by 'Covertly' and sometimes 'Overtly' acting in the Best Interests of England in the short term (an Inherited Colonial Attitude?), at the apparent expense of Wales and the other Celtic Home Nations (Easily Evidenced by Comparing England's Wealth £700 Billion annual income a year and Wales £15 Billion, see 'Inequality Indicator' under 'Wales in Purgatory' Heading above), could be exactly what is in the 'Worst' interests of England in their Medium to Long term Future?! Genuinely Evidencing Equality (see 'Equality Indicator' under the Heading 'Wales in Purgatory' Above)) with Demonstrated 'ACTIONS', Not just 'WORDS' through out the Whole of the UK seems to be the 'Only Way' to Secure the Future Union of the United Kingdom in the Modern Internet Information World (2016).Remember, 'Internet Access' these days means that Information is readily available, so keeping the general public 'IGNORANT' (as previously achieved in the not so distant past) becomes a lot more difficult in today's 'Modern Information Age' (Internet). This means that Politicians 'WORDS' can now be 'LINKED' to 'ACTIONS', and 'LIES' can now be easily 'LINKED' to the 'TRUTH', through Readily Accessible Evidenced Based Information. A Facility that is Now available to Anyone in the Modern World, A Fact that Old School Politicians Must Now Rapidly Adapt To (2016). So actually 'Equality' could be the 'Only Way' for England to maintain Control over their Inherited Valuable & Highly Lucrative Home Nation Celtic Properties in the Modern World (2016), as Inequality & Lies appears a lot harder to Hide these days (possible 'Omissions'), with Statistics quoted by Politicians being able to be Challenged as to their Validity through the 'Internet' and Alternative Statistics also being able to be quickly Sourced & Presented by the Average Person on the Street. Therefore it may well be Necessary in Today's 'INTERNET INFORMATION AGE'('The Information Revolution') in the last 15-20 years (widespread for approx 10 years up until this point in 2016), in order to ensure and secure England's (and the United Kingdom's) Future Best Interests, to Actively Embrace Equality, as opposed to apparently 'Self Sabotaging' themselves for short term gain (mindset of the Past), through Continuously Resisting Genuine Equality in the UK. (Greed is a Powerful Force which Leads to Complacency). As outlined previously, Inequality & Lies can Now be Easily Publicly Evidenced & Exposed to Scrutiny with a Public Internet Platform & Forum to Express these Concerns across the world, open to all UK citizens, not just public platforms that have only historically been available to the so called Elite (Traditional UK Mainstream Media's), since Information is Power, this new Internet Age position actually strengthens Democracy by providing a Voice for All (The Main Concept of Democracy). However, the people in Power will be unsettled at this recent Technology Development as Historically their Views & Opinions were the Only Opinions in the Mainstream Public forum with No Opportunity to be Challenged, but now these views can be Publicly Challenged, with reasoned and substantiated argument on a Public Platform Open to All Voters.
Accepting the Inherited Rule of England over Welsh affairs appears to send a strong message out to the rest of the world that Wales feels that English people are more competent and genetically better than Welsh people, and Welsh people acknowledge that somehow Wales is not capable of running its own affairs, as there has been no legitimate voice expressed to the contrary. The assumption may be then that Welsh people are inferior to English people as they do not possess the skills and capabilities that the English possess? However, as a long standing resident of Wales I have never got that sense of inferiority regarding their competence as opposed to England's competences, or any other Nation in the world. It appears to me that even though this perception could be an obvious perception, that it does not reflect Wales and its belief about it's self as competent and moral people, Perhaps More a Direct Reflection of the Historic and Ongoing Legacy and Burden of the Undemocratic Colonialism that Wales Continues to Inherit?
In addition, in order to Produce a Greater Quantity of Good Quality Solid Politicians to Represent and Defend Wales that may be More 'Enlightened', with 'Insight', and 'Analytically' Able to look at the 'Bigger Picture' based on 'Evidence' with the Necessary 'Courage' to act. To this End, It does appear that the Ability to 'Speak Publicly' Needs to be an Ingrained Early Skill in as many Welsh Children as possible, to Ensure a Larger Pool of Potential Politicians (& Representatives) in the Future, (which may further Encourage a Lifelong Engagement in Politics and their Society to Children at an Earlier age, reinforced with a Lower Age for Voting at 16). Using the Idea from many American (& some elite English) Educational Establishments of a 'School Debating Chamber' (or Area) to Develop specific Widespread High School Public Debating teams, with Debate Classes, Training and Competitions Between Welsh Schools, to Practice their Skill, Dexterity and Ease at Public Speaking. As 'Public Speaking' is a Vital Skill in all walks of Life and Career Advancement, not just being a Politician or a Council member, but also in area's such as Presenting Business Pitches within (or too) Multi-National Companies, Media work, Marketing, Sport, Tourism, Academia, Business, Entrepreneurship, to being a Lawyer and a Teacher, or just General Job Interviews. It does seem that the Ability to be Comfortable when Speaking Publicly as a 'General Skill Set' in Wales (by almost expecting a lead role?) seems to have been seen as Instinctively Unnecessary for many Welsh people over the previous Decades (if not Centuries), as a possible consequence of Welsh people Historically Assuming (Socialized) that they are more the Inherited 'Servant' the One's being 'Imposed On' (the Rule Takers) than the Inherited 'Master' the One's 'Imposing' (the Rule Makers) in the Inherited UK Power Hierarchy (See 'Describing the Relationship Between Wales & England' under the 'What is Britishness' heading above). However, with the Introduction of the Welsh Assembly Government in 1999 (albeit with Initial Limited Powers), the Need for more Potent Quality Welsh Politicians (by Introducing More Competition) to Cogently and Astutely Publicly Represent, Promote and Defend Wales has 'Significantly Increased'.
Although, it does appear 'Pertinent' at this stage to point out the Importance of 'Geography' in the apparent Colonial style of rule from the English Establishment. Most other previously Conquered Distant Colonial Territories such as Australia, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand and India (amongst others), all 'Asset Rich Countries' for the English establishment, though it has been alleged that due to the Cost of Transportation of Goods, People and Facilities, as well as the Mechanics and Infrastructure required to rule these Countries long term, due to their 'Geographical Distance' from England, it appeared to be more 'Cost Effective' for the English Establishment to Allow their Independence (Cost may have Outweighed the Benefits? Although UN Decolonisation Legislation initiated in 1945 also played a role?) and of course None of these Distant Nations were Directly 'Geographically' and Financially Linked into the UK Economic Markets, so would represent 'No' Direct Financial Competition when Given Independence on the English Establishments Doorstep. Distant Lands such as Hong Kong Continued to be 'Highly Profitable' (Benefits outweighed the Cost) for the English establishment, but was Given Back to China in 1997 as apparently China evolved into a larger military & financial force than "Britain" (The International British Bank 'HSBC' was created in Hong Kong, HSBC stands for 'Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation')? This Financial and Geographical Consideration appears to be Evident Today as the Only 'Main' Existing Colonial Assets the English establishment still Continue to Own are the Nations Geographically Closest to them (Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). Although the Central London English Establishment (Promote through their Media) the Thought that Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland are Funded by England and without England they would Collapse Financially, the Basic Economic Facts are that a person will Not Keep Land that does Not make them Money or is a Drain on their Resources!?...(Remember Even Iceland as an Independent Country, on the Far Reaches of Europe, with barely 300,00 people are a Wealthier Nation than Wales per Capita)The USA and Ireland are the Possible Exceptions to this Rule as they Actually 'Forced' their eventual Independence (through a variety of means)? In addition, obviously this Initial 'Colonialism Project' was Initiated before the Emergence of the United Nations in 1945, set up directly after the second world war (the Global Police Force), so after 1945 it appeared that the UN made it more difficult, if not impossible, for the English Establishment to Continue to Rule & possibly Exploit distant lands through alleged Force? These days it seems as if 'Subtle British Media Propaganda' (Orchestrated from London) and the further use of Ultimate Power by the English Establishment over British Law, Tax, Business, Finance and Politics within the UK, has had to Replace the Sword to Ensure Ongoing Colonial Control & Profitability from their Remaining English Establishment Crucial and Original Geographically Favourable Colonies based within the UK?
Wales appears to accept the current and ongoing 'Status-Quo' as there has never been anything else, it has always been the same (for 300 Years and Counting......) and more importantly no alternatives to this Historic & Present condition appears to have ever been 'Allowed' to be Explored through the various apparent English Establishment Edited & Controlled Mainstream Media (the World Wide Internet Outside of English Establishment Control can Now be used as a 'Voice' in 2016). It appears Evident to me that the Welsh people are resigned to the fact that this current circumstance may always be the case as it has always been the case, so they have to make the best of their Inherited situation, as they may feel powerless to bring about change due to a possible lack of balanced information put out into the public domain by the London based Mainstream Media, and a lack of actual Legal Alternatives & Finance to Voice or Challenge the Ongoing Welsh Inherited circumstance. Providing a balanced voice through the 'Mainstream UK Media' may allow a greater understanding to be provided to the Welsh people and the people within the Home Countries (& the Wider World) regarding the Welsh Condition. This apparent Media Dominance by the English establishment seemingly ensures a lack of any possible alternatives being Allowed to be explored that could be pursued to bring about a positive change for the people of Wales and 'Ensures Control', indeed the Debate could not even be started and the subject matter of Welsh Inequality exposed to the Welsh & UK public without the apparent Consent of the London based Mainstream Media (You Cannot Publicly Discuss a Solution Without First Publicly Identifying the Problem)? Obviously, If It Is the London Based English Establishment who are 'Preventing Welsh Prosperity' (apparently the Only Authority with the Ultimate Power in the UK to Achieve this Aim?) then Why would they use'Their Own' alleged London Based Mainstream UK Wide Media to Expose'Themselves' as possibly Corrupt!?......
It does seem that when Describing the Welsh Attitude to their Relationship with England the term ‘APATHY’ appears to be the Overriding Emotion. Perhaps this quote describing 'Psychological Warfare' from the 'Encyclopedia Britannica' may shed some light on the apparent Passiveness & Acceptance of the Welsh population, it states that, 'Psychological warfare (Commonly known as Propaganda) is the use of Propaganda against a perceived enemy (Friend or Foe) and supported by Economical and Political measures. Such Propaganda is Generally Intended to Demoralise the Perceived Enemy to Break his Will to Resist, and to Render him Generally Favourable to One's Position' (Colonialism?), in the absence of Hope it would appear that Apathy reigns? To further highlight the possible skill, dexterity & vast Experience that the English establishment may possess regarding Propaganda & Misinformation,Noam Chomsky, who was one of the Founders of the Field of 'Cognitive Science', goes onto to Highlight that,'The First Modern Propaganda Agency was the 'British Ministry of Information' a Century ago, which Secretly Defined it's Task as to 'Direct the Thoughts of Most of the World'. To further clarify the term 'Propaganda', the Oxford English Dictionary's definition of Propaganda is stated as, 'Information, Especially of a Biased or Misleading Nature, Used to Promote a Political Cause or Point of View', and of course in order to Spread Propaganda in the UK possessing Total Ultimate Control of the Mainstream UK Wide Media is 'ESSENTIAL'(Which Might Explain Why the Celtic Home Nations are Not & have Not been 'Allowed' Any National or International UK Wide Mainstream Media Presence in the UK)?
Indeed, there are many people who say that Discrimination and Racism will 'Always Exist', and therefore what's the point of Resisting it? However, any Movement towards Equality by 'Creating Awareness through Truth', means moving in a 'Positive Direction', and no matter how small those movements may appear at the time, they can make a 'Huge Difference' in making Life just that 'Little Bit Easier' for certain Discriminated Minority Groups, and their Next Generation coming through (who can then build on that again, towards making all forms of Racism socially unacceptable, but it has to start somewhere), and that is worth fighting for. As you must be Aware that 'Accepting Inequality Today means your Children will Accept Inequality Tomorrow', and so it Continues. As Easily Evidenced in Wales, why do you suppose that Discrimination, Underdevelopment and Slander has gone on for so long for Wales? At some point Wales has to say 'Enough', and start moving the Direction of Travel away from the Ongoing Subtle Underlying Presumption and therefore Acceptance of Inequality, and move Openly towards a Narrative of Expected Equality. Although, Wales Not being Allowed an Independent Mainstream Media Continues to Keep Welsh People Ignorant, the Biggest Weapon the London English Establishment have over Wales.
It does appear that Propaganda has been ever present, even in modern UK society (2016) through a variety of Media outlets (National Mainstream Television Channels, News, Films, Radio, Newspapers, Magazines & UK Internet) to Promote Selected Opinion's and Mould Social Behaviours, not just present in times of Physical War against a set Identified openly acknowledged enemy. Some recent examples in the UK could be the '£350 Million a week Extra for the NHS' Banner on the side of a Brexit campaign bus (2016), also the repeated Slogan of 'Strong & Stable' to describe Teresa May (Conservative Prime Minister) in the 2017 UK general election, both of which where later proven to be Fabrications of the truth. Just to point out a few more Historic Subtle examples of Favourable Propaganda apparently used through the Central London English Establishment, such as the Fictional Characters of 'James Bond' & 'Sherlock Holmes' to Insinuate that White English people are 'Super Intelligent' and 'Physically Superior' (mainly located with the backdrop of London), to highlight but a few Historic examples of apparent Propaganda using well known Fictional Characters & Films.
Although, apparently keeping Wales Ignorant of their Past and Present Relationship with England through such Historic Activities as possibly Not Teaching Specific Welsh History in Most Welsh Schools ('Omission' of possible facts?) with No Independent form of Welsh History being presented into the Welsh public domain through the Mainstream British UK Wide Media, apparently controlled by the English Establishment (it appears that the English Establishment have the Power in the UK to almost Edit Out their Part in How Wales Became Owned by England Originally, and How they Managed to Maintain that Control over the Centuries to the Present Day of 2016?) which appears to keep Welsh people Ignorant and Controlled, and therefore also appears to Prevent a Balanced Perspective of the Current & Historic Welsh and English Relationship from Ever being Openly Explored in the UK? As asserted by George Santayana (1863-1952) a prominent Spanish philosopher, 'Those Who Do Not Remember the Past are Condemned to Repeat It'. Furthermore, Goerge Orwell (1903-1949) goes onto highlight that, 'He Who Controls the Past Commands the Future'.
In addition, It is always quite amusing to see on Welsh Regional Television recently (London Controlled?) regarding the 20 Year Anniversary of the Welsh Devolution Vote in 1997, the Open Public Televised Debate as to whether the Welsh Assembly Since 1999 (with Wales being granted limited Powers over their own affairs) has 'Helped or Hindered' Wales in the last 20 Years? Though, Never the 'Open Public Televised Debate' Regarding Whether Total Overall Control of Wales from the English Establishment based in London over the last 300 Years has 'Helped or Hindered' Wales, which seems to 'Avoid'the Most Obvious but Important 'Question' (albeit the English Establishment do apparently control the Mainstream UK Wide Media, so can Decide the Direction or Subject of Any Debate)? So seeming to be 'Asking the Right Question But Obviously 'Critiquing' the Wrong Main Authority' regards Welsh Powers and Historic Lack of any Financial Progress, as London is Where the Ultimate Overall Power over Wales is Actually Historically & Continuously Situated (the Welsh Assembly Performs more of an 'Administration Role', as in overall Instructions & Finance given from London are mainly Administered and Allocated in Wales through the Welsh Assembly)?
Just as a Quick Side Note for a Moment outlining the apparent current situation in Britain, as many Welsh Labour Politicians (one of the two Dominant London Centred Mainstream UK Parties) point to lower unemployment figures in Wales (& UK) as proof of improvement in Wales (at this time in 2018). The reason that Unemployment Figures are at their lowest levels in Wales since the 1970's is because of the 'Hostile Environment' implemented by the other Dominant UK Mainstream party, the Conservatives in (2010), again Centred in London, with Shrinking Benefit payments, Arbitrary Sanctions (that Stops Payments for Weeks on End), Involuntary Work Placements (Legally defined through Poundland case (2013) as Incompatible with the UN Convention on Human Rights, 'Forced Labour') along with Inbuilt Obstacles and Delays put in place when First Claiming (apparently made even more Hostile by the New Universal Credits System in 2018 (Imposed from London), which will then have the Ability to Stop All Payments at Once when Sanctioned, as Opposed to just Partial Payment Blocks (so Personal & Housing Money Stopped at the Same Time), making People Destitute (Hence the Rise in Homelessness) but Saving the Government Money?). Whereby people are Forced to take low wage, low skilled, insecure, zero hour contract jobs (surely that would be an Unemployed Person?) that cannot cover their bills (so would Normally be Unemployed and Show Up on the Figures). However, they can claim restricted and difficult to obtain shrinking Working Tax Credits & some Housing Benefit, but this directed avenue ensures they will Not appear on the Official Unemployment Figures. Hence the reason why Unemployment is Low in the UK but the Tax Receipts have Not Gone Up Accordingly (More jobs means More people Working, More Tax payers Should Equal More Money to the Government in Tax? However, due to the Majority of these so called Jobs being Minimal Insecure Varying hours at Minimum wage they do not earn enough to pay Tax) with Wages Remaining Low due to the Flood in the Labour Market of Desperate People who have to take any job just to eat, which is Obviously Great for Big Business as they get a Constant supply of Cheap Labour, but Destructive to Society (Remember, there but for the grace of God go you or I), as Demonstrated with the Increase in Foodbanks, in Fact until recently Foodbanks were virtually unheard of in Britain (the Welfare State appears to have been Effectively Covertly Abolished in the UK at Present?). As further Evidenced in 2019 when Professor Philip Aston (UN Human Rights Commissioner) stated that,'The UK's Social Safety Net has been Deliberately Removed and Replaced with a Harsh and Uncaring Ethos'. Although these 'Hostile' Welfare Restrictions (through the creation of a Hostile Environment) Do Impact the Whole of Britain, Wales is Still Yet Again Continuously the Poorest Nation in the UK and therefore is Hit the Hardest by any UK Government Welfare Cuts.
Moreover, many People have Argued in Wales that the Existence of the Welsh Assembly is Paying Even More Bureaucrats 'On Top Of' the One's Situated in London (England), therefore Adding More Cost to the Public Purse? However, Other Welsh People have Countered this Argument by Suggesting that although this may Indeed be True, regarding Doubling the Cost for Bureaucrats, as there does appear to be to many more Bureaucrats due to the Introduction of the Welsh Assembly (1999). An 'Alternative' Proposal which maybe 'More Sensible' and 'Beneficial' for Wales and the Welsh people, if they are going to Reduce the Amount of Bureaucrats and therefore Public Expense, is to Remove the more Distant 'Travelling' (uses up precious Time & Resources) Bureaucrats from London (Member's of Parliament) which seems to Promote a more Distant, 'Arms Length' Relationship with Wales from London. In Preference to Removing the Bureaucrats Closest to Welsh Concerns in the Welsh Assembly, who may Posses More of a Constant Local Knowledge and Stronger Affiliation being actually 'Permanently' Based in Wales? Under this 'Alternative Suggestion' the Ultimate Outcome of Reducing the Cost to the Public Purse may still be Achieved, whilst Relocating any Welsh Representatives (MP's) Out of the 'Westminster, London Bubble' (in a another Nation)England (The 'Welsh Secretary' would Remain to Voice Welsh Interests & Concerns Directly in the Westminster "UK" Parliament, who is Permanently Located in the Welsh Office in London anyway), which seems to Relocate Representatives, 'More of the Time', even Closer to Wales and it's Local and National Concerns? This 'Alternative Approach'appears to Promote More of a Consistant Local Welsh Based Knowledge, Affiliation, Connection and Passion, which still Allows a Welsh Voice, were necessary, through the Welsh Assembly Ministers Relaying Welsh Constituency Concerns Directly through the 'Welsh Secretary' in the Welsh Office 'Permanently Based in London' for that person to Voice in the "UK" Parliament (when necessary), but will Significantly Cut the Numbers and therefore Cost of Politicians & Administrators to the Overall Welsh Public Purse?
In the Absence of an 'Up to Date', Full and Honest Debate Regarding Ongoing Inherited English Rule over Wales, which was Created in an Era when England were a 'Colonial Super Power' Undemocratically and very much 'Of Its Time', would mean that Wales (and the other Celtic home Nations) Currently Posses an 'Out of Date', 'Antiquated' System of Rule, that does Not Factor in the 'New World Order' and the New 'Internet Information Age' or appear to Respect or Adapt to recent Home Nations Devolution (Democratically Voted) since 1999, so Clearly is Not Fit for a Modern Day so called 'Democratic' British Isles. Although we are Fortunate enough to have the 'Basic Principles' of Democracy in Britain, this does Not mean that it is 'Perfect' and 'Permanent' and Shouldbe'LeftAlone', it requires Regular Critiquing, Monitoring, Nurturing and Developing, with a continuous view as to how it can be Improved and Adjusted to Better Engage and Fit the Needs of as Wider a Democratic Collective as possible in the UK, which appears to be a Significant aspect in Maintaining and Ensuring Democracy's Ongoing Future Relevance in Modern British Society.
Regarding Independence for Wales London constantly ask the question 'what currency will you use in an independent nation', when the question should be 'why is London making it so difficult for any Celtic nation to be independent', by suggesting that London will not allow an independent Celtic nation to use the Pound as currency essentially blocking independence in another way, as people will feel Uncomfortable and Fear changing their currency, due to London insinuating that the Euro is not a stable and safe currency, and cannot be used if you are outside of the EU, which it can be. Holding the second place as the reserve world currency (with the US dollar taking the first place), Euro is one of the world's safest currencies. Even though the Euro is also prone to fluctuations, the amounts of gold reserves in the EU zone and the currency's impact on various industries and markets make it stable, so actually Safer than the London Sterling (Pound). If the Union is strong and good for all UK nations then present the argument, but in the apparent absence of being able to do this London must block independence, even though currencies such as the US Dollar (generally regarded as the world's currency as it is so stable) can be adopted in any country without impediment, along with the Euro that is also considered a stable and safe currency world wide, only London have created this suggested impediment when using their currency for the Celtic nations as independent states. There is no Law that prevents a country from using another countries currency either for the short term as a stop gap, or for the long term, indeed connecting yourself to a rich and stable currency as an anchor is a good idea, especially for a fledgling nation, as a rich country is less likely to become poorer, or their currency become unstable in any tough times world wide. Although you cannot control interests rates, but in the case of the Celtic nations they were never allowed that ability anyway, so nothing has been lost (as London are always more likely to favour their own situation in any event), but the ability to financial generate and distribute your own wealth without Impediment has been created.
In addition regarding the London Based British Media, it appears that any Media 'Not' directly Central London English Establishment owned in the UK seems to be Immediately Edited, Directed, Commissioned and Produced by English Establishment Representatives at Ground and Management Level. Along with the one's that 'Are' directly owned, which might explain the predominantly English Flavour to their Productions such as Downton Abbey and the Bodyguard (for example), with any Foreign Owners (Rupert Murdoch & Family as an example) possibly presenting with more of a 'Hands Off' approach (Collecting the Financial Profit)? So appearing to allow the existing London based Editors, Directors, Commissioners and Producers to continue Creating News, Shows, Drama's, Soaps and Story Lines that they personally feel will sell to their own familiar audiences and saleable abroad (so Fundamentally then Periodically Different Owners, but Essentially the Same Core People who Work and Recruit there?). Even the Local Regional Media in Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland (the Specifically Locally accessible News, Newspapers & Regional Local TV Channels) are predominantly either Owned, Edited or Indirectly Controlled from London (even including the Regional Welsh Speaking S4C channel, which is Controlled & Funded by the BBC in London, for example). As of course, all Forms of potential Propaganda easily 'Fall at the First Hurdle' in the UK, if you do not have 'Total Control' of All Aspects of the 'British Mainstream UK Wide National (& therefore Internationally accessible) Media in Broadcasting and Print' (as without Total UK National Media Control in Broadcasting & Print any Messages, Assumptions or Narratives Promoted in the London based UK Media can then be Countered, Challenged, Explained or Neutralised). This apparent Total Historic and Ongoing Dominance by the Central London English Establishment appears to Historically Ensure Only their Singular 'Self Imposed' Voice Represents and Directs the Narrative for the Whole of the UK and each Individual UK Nation. (See p118-131 of the Free Electronic Book Version above for More Information on the "British Media"). The alleged Paradox being that if this historical level of subtle underlying overall Control (an Obvious 'London Centred' UK Media 'MONOPOLY') over the whole UK National Mainstream Media (Including the British Film Industry) apparently by the Central London English Establishment Network (the Old Boys & Girls Club) in Broadcasting and Print, were being Demonstrated abroad, the British (London) Media would quite possibly be the First to Label that Countries Media as a 'State Run Media'. Even though ultimately it appears that the BBC itself is an Historic and Ongoing State Funded Organisation Resulting from Government Law makers in London, with the Distinct Possibility that the Authority that Generates Funds for any Organisation would be an Obvious Primary Force within that Corporation? Indeed, with the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) and the Partly BBC Funded Channel 4, two of the Main Television Channel(s) in the UK which are all Orchestrated from London, it is a Legal Requirement that 'All' UK citizens (Households) Pay a Yearly Subscription of £147 (2016) and rising year on year, 'Whether they Want or Use their Service or Not', with UK Government Enforced Prison as an Ultimate Sanction for Non-payment. This Ongoing Legally Enforceable UK Law (Introduced back in 1946) would be like saying for Example in Modern Times that a person Must Pay for a 'Sky Sports Subscription' (Whether they Like Sport or Not!) or they will ultimately be Fined or put in Prison in a Court of Law, which in a so called free country is clearly 'Insane'?!... Surely Paying a Subscription to Watch the BBC or Not should be Optional, particularly in Modern Times with so many Numerous Other Viable and 'Free' (as well as Significantly Less Expensive) Options Now available?! So in Essence then, the Tragic Irony appears to be that Welsh people are Forced to Pay for a Large Part of their Own Damaging UK Negative Media Propaganda!?...
Moreover on a wider Political theme, in order to provide MP's that are in Politics for the 'Right Reasons' a Placement (or Apprenticeship) System needs to be put in place before an MP (Member of Parliament) can be considered for a Mainstream constituency, to certify an MP's validity for the role, as with most professions and occupations. Becoming a Mainstream MP cannot be decided by what school you went too or the connections you hold? This Placement System may take the form of a 6 Month Placement in a Social Housing Estate, Private Rental Property or Mortgaged Property (with their family) either undertaking a minimum wage job with Tax Credits, Zero Contract Job, on Unemployment Benefit or Working in the just about managing middle. To provide first hand up to date knowledge of how policies they may support might impact the average person, which will provide a Human side to their decision making based on at least some Experience and an element of Empathy. However, probably more importantly, this system will create MP's that are there for the Right Reasons, not just because they may have a good wage and use their positions during and after their MP period to secure more lucrative positions, commonly known as Career Politicians. This Placement System can finally demonstrate to the general public, many of who have been disenfranchised by politics over the years and with Politicians reputations at an all time low (if that is even possible?) as they see MP's are living in another world to most people, a Placement can create at least some what of a connection between the MP and the people who they are meant to Serve. A different placement position for long serving MP's after a 10 year period in the role.
As well as there needing to be a world wide definition or catergoriasation of the word POVERTY so governments cannot just play with the term, the term JOB also needs ot have a common definition, as a so called job that is non-contract, has no hliday or sick pay, and is funded by tax credits (in the UK as an example) through the government is not a JOB, as a JOB must be defined as a position that allows a person to live comfortably, full or part time (set wages for each, but a choice of full or part time according to circumstances), with also a set deinition of full time and part time (part time 16 hours), full time (37.5 hours), contracted, perhaps all jobs given the same wage give or take a couple of grand for mass workers under management and owner level (with more money paid to staff by definiton decreasing owners wealth mass again helping to level up society further, but on the flip side the more money in society the more of the owners product or servcies will be consumed, and the further need for more product and service providers creating more jobs), perhaps this would be more appropriate to finally provide a more equal society as the recent COVID 19 VIRUS (2020) has demonstrated that usually the most under paid jobs are the one's most vital to society, as it has become painfully apparent that you cannot judge the worth, or value of a job, based on its income.
WHAT DEFINES A WELSH PERSON?
Nation Specific Criteria (VOTE)
Without Clarifying Exactly what is Meant by Being 'WELSH' (InPolitical Terms), then the Welsh people’s Views and 'VOICE', as Genuine 'Stakeholders' in Wales's Future' (with NO Conflict of Interests), will Never be fully Recognised or Acknowledged in the 'Alleged' democratic Britain of today (2016). To Clarify, Due to the Large Porous Border with their English Neighbours on the Same Landmass, Immigration within Britain is Easy and Fluid.If the Welsh and the English Population Sizes were Equal or Relatively Comparable then this Undemocratic Anomaly would be Quite Easily Naturally Evened Out (as with the Relatively Low Numbers of Other Celtic Home Nations and any Overseas Immigrants Residing in Wales). Their is a Human Right to Elected Representation, so Welsh people Electing their Genuinely Identified Representatives to then go to the UK Parliament appears justifiable in Law. Although, Equal Representation is made slightly more difficult in the UK as it is in the very Unusual position of having Four Recognised Nations amalgamated as one in London. As a result the UK needs a slightly different approach to ensure Equal Representation for all Indigenous people of the Four Nations genuine views in UK parliament are Represented, not just Historically England's. The Nation Specific Vote Within Each UK Nation to Provide Greater Direct Democratic Representation for each Nation's People, then Further Coupled and Supported by a UK Nations Veto-Vote and/or Majority Vote Between each UK Nation in the UK Parliament at the Wider UK Level Decision Making on areas Specific to the Whole of the UK. Indeed in the Brexit Vote of 2016 the English Establishment stopped European Citizens (in EU) from voting as the apparent perception was that they may come with a possible Conflict of Interests as they represent the Club (EU) that the UK was voting to leave or not? However, due to England’s Population Presenting as Eighteen Times Larger than Wales, on the Same Fluid Border Landmass, with approximately 55 Million people out of the whole UK population of 66 million people (ONS 2016), which is 85%of the British Population as a whole, and the Welsh Population standing at approximately 3 Million people (5% of the British Population as a whole). It may only take a Small Shift of the English Population into Wales to Distort the Democratic views of the Indigenous Welsh people, if this Impact is not Already in Existence Without any Impact Felt in the Reverse (in England). This Impact appears more particularly potent in rural areas where less people live (but still appears very potent in urban areas). So if only a Couple of Dozen Families move in to Various Towns and Villages from Over the Border in England, as a Result of Cheap House Prices, More Space or Retirement, Where as a Consequence of Historical Under Funding and Under Development in Wales, Space and Land appears Relatively Abundant, and house rental and prices are significantly cheaper than in England just over the border, along with the Lure of More Substantial Properties (Due to Ongoing Welsh UK Poverty). Leading to many English people Retiring in Wales, but also many still working in England but Residing (so eligible to vote in Wales on Welsh issues) and then Commuting from Wales. Due to the already Small Population in rural areas (and in Wales as a whole) these Incomers will Drastically Distort the Local Indigenous Democratic Voice of each Individual Welsh Community and Constituency, just through the Sheer Volume of Numbers of the Incomers moving into Wales, Directly Effecting the Outcomes of a Welsh Independence (or for more Powers) Referendum, European Referendum or even Local and General Election's in Wales? Furthermore, when a Region or City in the Nation of England gain Internationally Recognised Nation Status then they too can be part of the Nation Specific Criteria Voting System, but until then the Historic Internationally Recognised Four Nations of the UK can by definition be the only participants subject to separate National Voting Analysis. However, to possess the Basic Principles of a Democratic Society within the UK presents as a Fortunate position for it's people, although, as suggested by Armando Iannucci (2017)'Just Because we have a Democracy in Britain doesn't mean that it is 'Permanent' and 'Perfect' and we should 'Leave It Alone', we have to Continuously 'Nurture it', 'Engage with it' and 'Renew it', to Commit to it'......
However, the Biggest Concern and Therefore the 'MOST CRUCIAL' in 'Rationalising and Clarifying' this Focus on Mainly the English Incomer Voting Population in Wales, is that "Wales is Owned by England". This Fact appears to possibly provide a Different View of Wales by English People Living in Wales, than that of 'ANY OTHER OVERSEAS IMMIGRANTS (OR CELTIC HOME NATIONS CITIZENS)' who may Reside in Wales (Who also Do Not Present as All One Specific Group (Race) within an Overwhelming Majority UK Population Mass), whilst Overseas Migrants may be More Likely to present with a Neutral Unbiased view on England and Wales (that could influence their Vote in Wales) as they may have heard of these Nations but have no actual experience of them individually?). To Clarify, Due to an apparent Natural Attachment to their Birth Country (Psychologically Proven to be Developed Largely in a Person's Early 'CHILDHOOD', as asserted by the Centre for the Developing Child, Harvard University 2009), 'Who Own Wales as a Nation', English People who Reside in Wales might be More Inclined to View Wales as'Theirs', the'Property of England' (Which Would Make Perfect Obvious Sense as the English Do Actually Own Wales), which may be they Do Not Want to Lose in a Welsh Independence Referendum, or Risk maintaining Less Control when Voting whether Wales should Posses More Powers? So when Voting in Wales, it may be in a Manner that Best Benefits their Own Nations Interests (a Basic Human Instinct?), by keeping Wales Under England's Control, which could be Further Achieved by Voting for a London Based Political Party? There appears to be 'No Other Country or Nation in the World', whose 'Immigrant Population' that Reside in Wales who May Posses the Same apparent ‘CONFLICT OF INTERESTS’?!...
*To clarify the term 'CONFLICT OF INTERESTS' the 'OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY' Definition is stated as: 'A SITUATION IN WHICH CONCERNS OR AIMS OF TWO DIFFERENT PARTIES ARE INCOMPATIBLE'. Furthermore, *The 'CAMBRIDGE DICTIONARY' Definition goes onto state that a 'CONFLICT OF INTERESTS' is: 'A SITUATION IN WHICH SOMEONE'S PRIVATE INTERESTS ARE OPPOSED TO THAT PERSON'S RESPONSIBILITIES TO OTHER PEOPLE'.
Do not get me wrong, if this Conflict of Interests Situation were in Reverse where Wales Owned and Controlled England and had general ultimate Control over all its Tax Contributions and were able to ultimately Control all 'Decision Making' within Britain to Permanently Favour their Own Social and Economic Interest's. I am pretty sure that in that scenario that the Welsh people would be Reluctant to Voluntarily Vote to give away that Land and/or Minimise its Powers over that Land as well?... None the less, that does not make it right, as a 'Conflict of Interests' is a 'Conflict of Interests' and as such is likely to Distort any Personal Decision making and Ultimately any Democratic Vote (Resulting in Disunity), Regardless of who's Interest's it may advantage or dis-advantage (much as, if a politician has a 'Conflict of Interests' they must 'declare it' and have it 'openly acknowledged', to promote Fairness and an 'even playing field'). Acting on the Basic Human Instinct to 'Look After Your Own First' is Fine when a Country is a Separate Entity, but Definitely Not Fine as Part of an alleged UNION of NATIONS (United Kingdom)!... The Conflict of Interest's apparently being that Potentially certain Collective Personal Interests may Significantly 'Undermine Impartiality' regards the Wider Public Interests?Indeed, certain restrictions on other resident Nationals voting in a different Nation's elections is not uncommon it happens all across the Europe and indeed currently in the UK regarding many EU National's.
Furthermore, In June 2014 a 'Telegraph' Newspaper Article by John Bingham Pointed Towards this Migrant Concern by Introducing the Article Headed, ‘The Welsh Could Become a Minority in Wales as English Set their Sights West’. In this Article the author Highlighted that in 2014 it was Estimated that '22%' (ONS 2011) of the Population Residing in Wales can be Identified as 'English' and rising (which is 660 Thousand People out of the Welsh Population of 3 Million), with only 3% of England's whole population being from the other three Celtic UK Home Nation's 'Combined'. Many of these English migrants are said to be predominantly of Adult Voting Age (primarily Retirees or come to Work in Wales). So in terms of the genuine 'Real Term Impact' of this 22% of migrants on the actual Voting Pool and therefore Democracy in Wales may a Substantial Impact (in Representing Welsh Views) when Votes are cast in Wales in Elections or Referendums. The Article goes onto suggest that by the mid 2080’s Welsh People will be a Minority in Wales, as a result of their Nations Geographical Closeness to England, their Disproportionately Large Population and the Fluid Movement of People from England to Wales. Where as a Consequence of Under Funding and Under Development in Wales, Space and Land appears Relatively Abundant, Along with the Lure of More Affordable and Substantial Properties (due to ongoing Welsh UK poverty). To Clarify, the Oxford English Definition of a Migrant is, 'a person who moves from one place to another, especially to find work or better living conditions'. To put this 22% into Perspective, 22% of England's Population of 55 Million would be 12 million One Hundred Thousand People. Imagine the Public Outcry in England, Due to a possible perception of an Unfair Disproportionate Democratic Influence within England's Democratic System!... (again in Contrast All of the Celtic Nations people 'Combined' only make up 3% of England's entire population)?
In order to put this figure of 22% into some sort of perspective, in the recent European election vote (May 2014) ‘Plaid Cymru', the party of Wales, polled 15.6% of the overall votes made in Wales, with the National voting turn out at 32.1% of the eligible Welsh voting population, and in 2016 are currently the second party in Wales. This same Article suggested that only 3% of the English Population is Derived from the Celtic UK Home Nations 'Combined' (Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland), a Celtic 'Ethnic Minority' (Ethic Due to Celtic Heritage, see 'Race Laws UK & EU' above). Which appears to suggest that out of the Four Home Nations Only England, with their Disproportionately Large UK Population Mass, remain Unaffected by this Anti-Democratic UK Anomaly, indeed they appear to be the Only Nation who Actually Significantly Gains? This Ever 'Increasing English Resident Contingent' (as Easily Evidenced through Listening to the Accents of the People Based in Wales, Demonstrated on the Welsh Regional Media, Business or in General day to day living) in Wales Due to the Current UK Voting System appears to 'Severely Alter' the Results of Any so called Democratic Vote that Wales partakes in, which Provides an 'Artificial and Distorted View of the Welsh Perspective'. Moreover, on a Wider UK Voting Perspective England's Overwhelming Population Numbers within the UK appears to Allow England to "Democratically Vote" through Anything it Favours, at a UK Wide Level (England are 85% of the Whole UK Voting Population (55 Million People out of an Overall UK Population of 66 Million People), Wales are 5% (3 Million People), In a UK Wide Vote or Referendum (Brexit) for example, You Do The Maths!!....)
Now lets explore the Dictionary Definition of the term Democracy, the Oxford English Dictionary Describes 'Democracy' as, 'A System of Government by the 'Whole' Population or 'All' the Eligible Members of that State, Typically Through Elected Representatives'. Furthermore, the Oxford English Dictionary also goes onto to say that a Definition of 'Democracy' is also, 'Control of a Group by the Majority of its Members'. This 'Control of a Group', as in the Group of the Four Nations within the United Kingdom, by the'Majority of its Members', is where the main 'Problem'in the Basic Principle of the UK Democratic system lies in Representing the Whole of the UK. The'Group'of the United Kingdom are Not all One Homogeneous Group, so to have a Majority within One group (England) to Represent All Four Nations would by Definition be Unfair and even possibly Biased Towards that One Dominant Nation. Moreover, the One Main Dominant largest population group of the English (even the Anglo-Saxon name of England is translated into 'Land of the Anglo's) within the United Kingdom do not appear to be the same Race or Ethnic group as the other Celtic Home Nations within the UK (English are of Anglo-Saxon heritage, Others are Celtic), so could Historically & Consistently perceive the different Ethic & Racial group members in the UK as the Historic 'Other', the Outsiders? Further, complicated by the fact that the Celtic Nations that are part of the UK were initially Forced to join the Union Centuries Earlier in a Non Democratic manner by the use of the Majority Nation's overwhelming numbers, military might and close Geographic proximity. In any UK Wide Democratic Vote, only the Voice of the Nation with the Largest Numbers of Voters (England who Represent approximately 55 Million people (85%) out of the UK's Whole Entire Population of 66 Million people), will be heard above all the other smaller population members (the Other Three Celtic Home Nations within the UK representing a 'Combined'15%, which is approximately '11 Million people', within the UK), with the Brexit UK Referendum as a recent example in 2016 (taking Scotland & Northern Ireland out of the EU Against their Democratic Will, as the English Establishment Ensured the Brexit Vote was a UK Wide Vote, Meaning that Mathematically their Nation had the Obvious Overall Final Say). Moreover, due to Easy and Fluid Movement within the UK, any Local Elections or Specific Referendums held in the smaller Celtic Nations, specifically, may well be Severely Effected due to the Overwhelmingly Large English Population Migrating Within the UK (the Scottish Independence Referendum in 2014 as a possible example).
To help Counter this 'Disproportionately Uneven UK Voting Population Anomaly' Between England's 85% of the Whole UK Wide Voting Population and the Other Celtic Home Nations of the UK, with Wales at 5%, Scotland with 8% and Northern Ireland at 2% (In a Combined UK Wide Vote or Referendum 'You Do The Maths'!). In order to Provide an 'Equal Democratic Voice for All the People in the Whole of the UK', (A Key Element In Any Democratic Vote) not just Wales but all UK Nations, the author Proposes that 'Proof of Birth' in Wales would be a 'Simple Non-Convoluted Solution' to this Obvious Ongoing Anti-Democratic System, Historically and Currently Present in the UK (2016). This Proof Criteria may be in the Form of Providing a Passport when Voting(or Other Methods of Proof Previously Provided Through Future or Existing Technology), which appears to be Simple, Hassle Free and Convenient. To Ensure Fairness Welsh people Living Outside of Wales Could Use a Postal Vote to their Birth Region in Wales, in order to provide a Real Term Representation that Provides an Accurate Representation of Wales. Along with English people Resident in Wales Using a Postal Vote (Computerised Vote in the Future) to also Divert their Vote Back to their Birth Region in England to also provide an Accurate English Representation. Indeed, providing Identification at Polling Stations already happens in Northern Ireland with No Problems what so ever.Although, Postal Votes have been in Operation for Decades with 'ExPats' (Immigrants) Living Outside of the UK, with No Concerns Regarding Cost, Efficiency or Fairness? Obviously in the pursuit of Fairness and Equality, as well as to avoid genuine accusations of Racism by the English Majority tribe, then Welsh people living in England must also be Subject to the Same Voting Criteria (Vote being Relayed Back to their Original Birth Region in Wales to Affect the Outcome in their Own Nurtured Region) when Engaging in English Only Concerned Referendums as well as Local and General Elections. Although, the 'Office for National Statistics' (ONS 2011) states that all the Celtic Nations residents in England 'Combined' is only 3% (so has an almost negligible impact anyway) of England's overall population, with No Unique Conflict of Interests from the other UK Celtic Nations as they do not own or ultimately control England, however in the Interest's of Fairness this must be seen to happen.
If 'Democracy' is a "Core British Value" then How Can the Current UK Wide Voting Model (2016) be so Unfair by appearing to be'Permanently Rigged in Favour of the Majority Tribe' (the English are 85% of the UK's Whole Voting Population (55 Million People Out of An Overall UK Population of 66 Million) Wales is 5% (3 Million People), You Do The Maths!..), Surely a 'Value' by Definition Must be Morally Correct? This Simple 'Proof of Birth Region Solution' Must be Implemented to Allow & Ensure Equality of Expression for the Welsh Peoples Views (as it allows an Allocation for each Home Nation not a Combined UK WIDE Vote), as it seems No 'Coincidence' that the General Voting Pattern of Wales in the Recent UK Wide European Referendum (2016) appeared to Follow almost the Identical Pattern of England (High English Incomer Numbers (22%) Assisted by an Influential National London Media)? The Proposed Nation Specific Criteria is 'Not Perfect' as it cannot guard against All the Negative Connotations of England's Majority Population being so Disproportionate to the Other Home Nations Democratic Voting Pool, but it is Fairer than the current British Electoral System. What it Can Do is to Help to Minimise & Contain 'Most' of the Negative Impact of a Vastly Uneven and therefore Unfair Combined UK Voting Population by Allocating a specific Voting Voice to each Home Nation not being continuously Drowned out by a Combined UK Wide Vote.
England also Posses an Overwhelming Amount of Constituency Areas as a Result of being the Largest UK Population (which Requires an MP for Each) so in any UK Wide General Election who ever the Majority English Voting Population Predominantly Vote for will be recognised as the Democratically Voted Voice of the Whole UK, also Leading to Significantly More English MP's in the UK Parliament, with 533 MP's for England, 59 for Scotland, 40 for Wales and 18 for Northern Ireland, So even in Any "UK" London Westminster Parliament Vote, England Can Push Through Legislation, Structures and Motions that favour them. This Large Constituency Number (MP's) due to the largest UK population representing England will account for the DUP (Democratic Unionist Party) Voted in Power in Northern Ireland, the SNP (Scottish Nationalist Party) in Scotland and Labour in Wales, but the Whole of the UK is Governed by the London based Conservatives who the English Population have Predominantly Favoured in their own country (meaning that who ever England votes for on Mass as the largest population 85% will rule the whole of the UK regardless of how the other home Nations voted in their country). However, in Reality Only total Independence for Each Individual Nation within the UK could Solve this Particular UK Democratic Problem (although if you want to remain as part of the UK this unfair representation can be evened out, if all the four UK Nations where given the same amount of constituencies (MP's in the "UK" Parliament), such as by making the Celtic Nations constituencies Smaller (more of them) and the English constituencies Larger (less of them) as a possible ides, but that is an argument for another day, baby steps first).
However, the Good News is that in Introducing this Uncomplicated Proposal of the new 'Nation Specific Criteria' Voting System with a Simple and Convenient 'Proof of Birth Region' (Indeed, providing Identification (that can clarify Nationality) at polling stations happens in many countries world wide including Canada and France, and even already exists in Northern Ireland) process can 'Help to Mitigate' a Large Proportion of the Historic & Ongoing Negative Effects that possessing such an Unequal Population Mass between England and the other Home Nations appears to consistently Generate (Negative Effects only Experienced by Three out of the Four Nations of the UK, so Logically if it is set up to Benefit England, who are the Only Nation in the UK with the Power to Implement the new Nation Specific Criteria, then why would they do that if it Limits their Power?....).The Nation Specific Criteria Vote Proposal, Although Far From Perfect, appears More Effective in Representing the Whole of the Democratic View of the Entire UK than the Current UK Voting Format which Combines UK Votes to predominantly favours just England's views. As it appears to ensure a Fairer Democratic System in Each UK Nation in Representing their Genuine Indigenous Views and Preferences when each Individual Nation Votes Internally in Local Elections, General Elections (Provides the Party and Result that the Indigenous Home Nation Specifically Voted For) and Referendums Specific to Each Nation (including one's for more Powers or not). Consequently Assisting in Mitigating much of the Unfairness Associated with One Nation Possessing a Disproportionate Amount of Voters in the UK.Although obviously Significantly More Democratically Effective and Fairer than the Current UK Voting Model, the Nation Specific Criteria can be a Huge Step Forward towards Moulding and Nurturing the Best UK Democratic Model for Future Generations for All of the United Kingdom's Nation's and Citizens. Indeed, to further Clarify and Confirm, certain restrictions on other resident Nationals voting in a different Nation's elections is not uncommon it happens all across the Europe, and indeed currently in the UK regards EU National's.
It appears that the Indigenous Welsh Voters must be Recognised and Empowered through a New Creative but Simple Democratic Voting System (Nation Specific Criteria) to Allow the Other Nation's Voices within the UK (Not just Wales) to be as Strong and Recognised as the One Majority Nation's Voice (England). This approach would Introduce a true 'British Core Value' of Democracy for All, not just Democracy for the One Majority tribe, Creating a Truly 'United Kingdom' and a New Solid Sense of 'Britishness' Based on 'Fairness and Respect' moving on into the Future (Promoting Unity Not Division).
To Clarify this term ‘Incomers’, the proposed 'Voting Criteria' it appears, must Focus mainly on Identified English Born Residents in Wales. However, all identified English residents in Wales can Enact their Democratic Right to Vote, unless Specifically on a Welsh based matter, for example a Welsh Referendum, or Referendum for More Powers for Wales, and to Promote Fairness the Same will apply for Welsh People Living in England on Specifically English Matters. This Democratic Voting Right can be Enacted in General and Local Elections by using the Postal Voting System (although Computerised Voting would be a Future avenue) to Relocate English people's Votes who are Resident in Wales Back to their Own Original Place of Birth within the UK,and again to Ensure Fairness, Vise Versa with Welsh People Living in England.
The Focus mainly on the English Resident Population in Wales may be able to be Legally and Morally Justified as the English Population is 55 Million people, approximately Eighteen (18) Times Greater than that of Wales (3 Million), at 85% of the Whole Entire UK population (the Focus Based Purely on the Unequal Maths). Human Rights Law states that a person should be Represented in a Vote, but in the UK they are in the Unusual Position of Four Internationally Recognised Nations people's Views that need to be Equally Represented. Indeed in the Brexit Vote of 2016 the English Establishment stopped European Citizens (in EU) from voting as the perception was that they may come with a possible Conflict of Interests as they represent the Club (EU) that the UK was voting to leave or not. The other UK Home Nations posses Small Populations that are relatively similar in numbers to Wales (Wales 3 Million, Scotland 5 Million & Northern Ireland 1.9 Million people). So only needing a Small Shift of the Overwhelming English Population from England into Wales to Drastically Distort the Views, Voice and Opinions of the Indigenous Welsh Community (Genuine 'Stakeholder's' in Wales's Future with NO 'Conflict of Interests') who are only 5% of the Whole UK Population (England 85%). Furthermore, England is the Closest Country to Wales on the Same Land Mass so Movement of People is Fluid and Regular with More English People likely to Settle in Wales in the Future Due to 'Inexpensive Housing' and 'Abundant Space', as well as 'Geographic Convenience' as a Further Draw? Indeed Wales's Only Border Shares the Whole East side of its country with England on the Same Land Mass, with North and South Wales appearing to be Enclosed by English Territory and the West side of Wales Bordered by the Irish sea.In Democratic & Geographical terms 'This is like a Hippo sharing a bed with a Duck', Extremely One Sided!.....
Furthermore, Without Identifying Specifically What the Views of the Majority English Population Are Towards the Union of the United Kingdom as a Whole, then the Direction of the other Home Nations (& indeed England) may Never be Naturally Clarified (We Just do Not know the Position of the Overwhelming 85% Majority Tribe of the English in the UK)? Could it be that the Majority of the English Population view Wales as a Burden, a Burden they could do Without? Or do they Value Wales as a Loyal and Sturdy Ally and Feel Less of a country without them? Or Ultimately given the Length of this Particular Union, could it be that the English Population Views Wales as the Family Member they Never Really Liked and Only Tolerated them because the Law within the Act of Union 1707, said to do so? However, these Views Need to be eventually Clarified through an Essential 'English Only Referendum' so Wales, England (& the other Home Celtic Nations) can Finally Identify 'Where Exactly They Stand'??!... As staying part of a Union where it has been Identified that the Majority are just Tolerating you, is Not a way Forward for the Whole of the UK and would Further Bolster, Validate and Push through an Independence agenda for Wales, as Who wants to be in a Union which has 'Specifically Clarified & Confirmed' that it does not Want you there or Value you? (Perhaps the Reason Why it has Not already happened?). Alternatively though If this Essential 'English Only Referendum' suggests that Wales (& the other Celtic Home Nations) are Valued and Wanted then this Must be Backed Up with Tangible Action to Provide Equality in All areas of the UK (You Cannot have All the Positives of Being in a Union Without Any of the Negatives!..). See the Free PDF Book Provided under the 'Home' Heading above, p16 'What are the Views of the English on the UK?'.
This 'Nation Specific Criteria' proposal still Promotes a UK Wide Vote (with a Democratic Veto Vote System at UK Decision Making Level to Equalise the Four Nations Populations within the UK), but in order to prevent the Voice of each Celtic home Nation being 'Drowned Out' by a Mass UK Wide Public Vote (85% of UK Voters being English, 5% being Welsh, 'You Do The Maths!..'), the 'Nation Specific Criteria' suggestion allows the Wider General Public, Analysts and Politicians More Specific and Focused Access to the Grass Roots, Indigenous, Opinions and Voice of Each Home Nation's Genuine Population Individually in Significantly more Detail and Clarity, Including England's.As Each Home Nation is slightly Different, then their Identified Needs will also be slightly Different, but the Home Nations Indigenous People's Views Need be Known First Before this can be Achieved.
This Criteria to Vote suggestion, the 'Nation Specific Criteria', is put forward purely out of ‘Common Sense’, as a person Voting on the Fate of Another Country or Nation who may have a Vested Interest (Conflict of Interests) in the Welfare of a Dominant Neighbouring Country or Nation, could Obviously Skew any Results, Particularly if that persons tribe is Overwhelmingly over Represented in a UK wide Referendum or even a specific Welsh Referendum (English are 85% Compared to the Welsh who are 5% of the UK Population as a Whole). When a person Identifies themselves with a Particular Nation they may Instinctively Tend to Predominantly Favour the Needs of that Nation?
To present in simple terms, the Basic Principle of Owning a Piece of Land, England Owning Wales, means that if the Owner of that Land had a Referendum Vote to Give Away Their Land for Free (similar to the Scottish independence Referendum 2014) then 'Common Sense' would Dictate that, that person would be More Inclined to Predominantly Vote ‘NO’,'Who in their Right Mind Would Voluntarily Vote to Give Away Land that they Feel they Own, For Free'!?.. Almost the Perfect Analogy of Asking'Turkeys to Vote for Christmas'?.... This is the Analogy that appears to Demonstrate an English person’s Perspective Living in Wales, who may not Intrinsically Identify Themselves as Welsh, but Resides in Wales, when they Vote in a UK or Welsh Independence Referendum, General and Local Elections. or when Voting as to whether or not to provide more Powers for Wales?
It does appear that Recognised Indigenous Welsh people Voting in Local, General Elections or Referendum's will assist in Clarifying and therefore Acknowledging their 'Minority' Voice (Wales 5%) in a 'Vast Sea' of an '85% Majority Population'(England 85%). Any EU referendums may also be a matter of Welsh interest, due to their inferior economy and over reliance on EU funding, which is different to England? However, it seems that it is difficult to get much more relevant to your own Race or Region than your local MP? Surely the Vote for your Local MP, that Represents them in Westminster, whether that person represents with affiliations to any of the available parties, or is English or Welsh, or any other Nationality, does not matter,but the Fact that they may have been Voted and therefore Elected by the 'Recognised Indigenous Welsh People' of each Community and Constituency area seems Obviously Fairer. Even Welsh people living outside of Wales will have family members and close friends still Directly Linked to their Birth Area and Vise Versa with the English Residents in Wales, so still apparently Maintaining that Concern of Wanting the Best for their Birth Place Community (and Nation), even though they may not Physically be Living there at the time of Voting?
This Nation Specific Criteria 'Proof of Birth' (providing I.D at Polling Stations already happens in many countries world wide including Canada, France and even in Northern Ireland within the UK) when Voting seems to be Fairer and more effective in Representing what the Original Indigenous People who Identify and possess a Genuine Affiliation with a Certain Region or Nation, the 'Genuine Stakeholder's' in their Nation's Future, who possess 'NO' 'Conflict of Interests', actually Authentically and Genuinely think is Best for their Area and their Nation as a Whole (be that England or Wales). As the Centre for the Developing Child Harvard University (2009) asserts, 'The Formative Early Years (0-10) is said to be Hard Wire Information (such as Identity) into the Brain, that Remains throughout a person's Life'. This Simple 'Hassle Free' & 'Convenient' 'Proof of Birth' (providing Identification at Polling Stations already happens in Northern Ireland with No Problems what so ever) approach can Further be Implemented to all Four Nations of the UK to Demonstrate that their Nation is 'Valued' and to Reflect the grass roots 'Different National Opinions and Trends'(as the UK is Not all One Homogeneous group). Although this 'Nation Specific Criteria' Proposal is Far from Perfect, it Ensures More of an Equal 'VOICE' for all 'Four Nations of the UK' when voting internally within each Nation than the Current UK Democratic System and Will Represent a Significant Leap Forward Towards UK Equality, and then to provide Equality at UK Wide Decision Making Level Aligned with the Veto Vote (and/or Majority Vote) Between the Four Nations of the UK in the UK Parliament on areas Specific to the Whole of the UK, thus possibly Solidifying and 'Future Proofing' the Union of the United Kingdom, not Working Against It?!...
