A recent study in England has shown that 73% of the English population secretly wish that they were born Welsh.
94% of those who took part said that they even preferred the Welsh flag because it’s got a big fricking dragon on it.
Professor SqueakyShoes who commissioned the survey told WalesOnCraic:
“We were quite surprised by this outcome as the general feeling is that the English are a very proud nation. But scratch beneath the surface and you’ll find that the average English person secretly wishes that they were born Welsh. We found that the English lacked any sense of hiraeth, which is always good for the soul. We also found that a lot of English people considered converting to Welsh back in the summer of 2016 when Wales went all the way to the semi-finals of the Euros. They realised that being Welsh is a fun thing for the most part. The English will of course, deny it in public, accusing us of being arrogant and big-headed but we now know the real story.”
Betty Knickersmudge, who took part in the survey but didn’t want to be named said:
“During the day, I’m a very proud Englishwoman but when I go home at night, I put on the Stereophonics and eat cawl. It’s a secret I’ve had for many years now.”
