Sandie. Not being serious when I posted about Knighton. As far as I know, that is one of the most peaceful areas of the UK. Lovely towns to visit. It had a Welsh book shop when I visited about 20 years ago. I got a book and DVD about Fireman Sam in Welsh for children which they loved. "Taniwr Sam" I think he was called in Welsh. :-D

Sorry , lost me John. ..are you being serious , or Not being serious as you posted.

Why are you bringing up Knighton ? Is there a revolution going on there ?

I thought it was a quite quiet town !

Not being serious, Sandie. Don't think there have been recent problems in the Knighton and Llanfair Waterdine areas. Though all those castles along Offas Dyke point to a turbulent past :-(

What you on about John? Local politics ? Something I keep well away from !

Sandie. Yes rugby is quite friendly rivalry. But you are forgetting the local war at present time between Radnorshire and Shropshire. A border skirmish - but livelihoods have been lost. :-D ;-)

I like all softer accents. Favourites are very north of Scotland, west coast of Ireland (like Janet in Dr Finlay's casebook) and French, of course :-D :-D

But any Welsh accent is so good. Perhaps Cardiff and Flint not so hot. My favourite is Anglesey. And I just love the Valleys :-D :-D Oh, and Liverpool and Wirral never grate on me. Nor does Stoke, duck.

As far I know the only revelry Wales v England ( currently) and that is friendly too is between the Rugby Union teams....and may it stay that way :-) :-)

The Cardiff accent is a bit iffy - that's Grangetown, Splott etc. - I have lots of rellies in Grangetown

If there is one conclusion I would draw, it is that there has been NO competition between England and Wales to see which is best country to live in and which is best language. We have just given our personal opinions.

Someone said that English vocabulary is much greater than Welsh, and that is a fact. I pointed out that Welsh has more words for sheep than English - and probably more words for other animals too. That is a fact. Nothing competitive in that.

Vive la difference, I say :-D Wales and England and Scotland working together (whether united politically or no) will always be stronger in the world than Australia and New Zealand combined.

But women had to leave when they got pregnant...at least at ICI where I worked.....at about 6 months.
Just thought that banking got a bit easier in the late60's early 70's due to decimalisaton.
