The end is nigh for the 'United' Kingdom

The pandemic has seeded the idea of a prime minister “who speaks for England alone” as relations between the four nations of the UK deteriorate amid “deep-rooted complacency”, a senior former civil servant has warned.

There is widespread ignorance towards the union, meaning ministers can be kept in the dark about major reforms with little consideration for the four nations, Sir Philip Rycroft, the permanent secretary to the Brexit department until 2019, says in a report.

His damning conclusion says the 300-year-old union is in deep peril and even major political ructions such as the close-run 2014 Scottish referendum and the following year’s SNP landslide prompted little soul-searching in Westminster.

They want Wales to become a sovereign nation, independent of England, instead of being a principality.

To become an independant state and rejoin the EU. Won't be easy but it's achievable, in my humble opinion ofcourse.

Tbh polls mean little to me, they've done polls in West Wales and North Wales (both seen as heartlands of Wales) where theres a stronger support for independance where Plaid Cymru actually have seats in the Sennedd (Welsh Parliament), % is usually higher than it would be in South Wales (where I live). My town, Bridgend, has been labour for 30 odd years, Labour lost the seat to UK parliament and might actually lose a seat in May (local elections) aswell.

Surveys are great and all if there is a huge amount of people participating.

UKIP has pledged to hold a referendum on scrapping the Welsh Parliament.

Its manifesto for the Senedd election pledges to scrap measures to help asylum seekers and refugees in Wales, end the smacking ban and stop sex education in primary schools.

UKIP Wales leader Neil Hamilton said it was the bravest manifesto "ever set out for moving Wales forward".
