I've never quite understood why the English think that all welsh people are 'sheep shaggers'. The most densly populated areas in wales (Newport, Cardiff, Swansea, and the rest of south wales) take the piss out of the other, 'sheep-shagging' areas of wales, just as much as the English do. However, it is just a JOKE! I think I can quite safely assume that no one in wales shags sheep (Unless they're into beastiality) lol :P
And as for all that crap about English/ Welsh rivalry in sport: It's just a fuckin' game! At the end of the day, being welsh, i'm bound to support wales; Ireland and scotland respectively, coz the smaller countries in the UK are bound to 'gang up' against the largest country.
But I mean, a lot've my relatives have moved to England; I have a house in Devon and spend a lot've time there. The only difference between me, and the English, as far as I'm concerned, is the accent. And as for all the rubbish that's been said about cardiff (and the violence that's been associated with it); all towns/cities have rough areas. However, we (the welsh), despise the minority of welsh people, who give this stunning and inviting country, the reputation of one that is full of aggressive; violent, 'hooligans'. (Especially considering the fact that it is the English football team, millwall, not cardiff city, who are renowned for having the most violent fan club!)
Anyway, despite all my rambling, my main point is that wales, (especially south wales), is no different to England, and I can't understand why we are stereotyped as being 'sheep shaggers'. We have the most amazing countryside; (My university is situated right next to the Gower, which has been officially designated as an 'area of outstanding natural beauty'). And even though the welsh language is undeniably 'useless' abroad, it is a fuckin' awsum language to be given the opportunity to learn. Wales, despite being small, is a country full of talent and natural beauty and I think it is impossible for anyone to argue otherwise. That is why I get so annoyed at foreigners (the Americans in particular); calling the UK 'England' and not Great Britain. Because, I belive that the UK (all four members included) is a great country. And I think it's fair to assume that we are all united in our pride and patriotism at being British. We all know that bigger is not necessarily better (the USA probably the best example of that :P lol). Despite being small, we are a fuckin GREAT country and as far as I'm concerned we should stick our fingers up to anyone who trys to tell us otherwise :)! Luv all u Brits!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wales, England, Scotland, Ireland, Great Britain
