    "exactly how do you define stealing other peoples land , english weekenders buying cottages in wales ? denying the irish their island ?" There was a campaign of burning down English-owned holiday cottages and obviously there's a long history of IRA terrorism. Do you support that then? Either way I think you need to do a bit more reading so you don't become the b/s league. It would be ludicrous to compare the position of Irish and Welsh, with the Pals. The Welsh and Northern Irish all have full democratic rights as citizens of the UK and full freedomn of movement and rights to settle and work anywhere in the UK. The Pals don't have any democratic control whatsoever over their occupiers and little freedom of movement. The Welsh have been offered independence in a referendum but have opted for their own parliament and semi-independence instead. In Northern Ireland too, it's long been made clear that if a majority want union with Ireland, that will happen. How about asking a majority of West Bankers what they'd like, eh?
