ANGLOSPHERISM, NOT RACISM:

It's time to put Welsh independence on agenda - Leanne Wood (Steven Morris, 27 June 2016, The Guardian)

The leader of Plaid Cymru has called for the people of Wales to start discussing the possibility of the country becoming independent.

Leanne Wood said Brexit was an opportunity to break free from the UK - and though Wales voted overwhelmingly to leave the EU she argued that its citizens would think again if the country became independent.

Plaid has long advocated independence for Wales but seen it as a long-term aspiration rather than a short-term goal. Brexit has altered that.

Brexit was about self-determination.  It would have passed at any time the past 30 years, as Maggie understood and Tory elites feared.
