wales is a nation to the West of England and, like England, is a part of the United Kingdom. Wales has it's own ancient language and culture. There is a tendency towards independence within Wales. Anything CAN happen, the question is; SHOULD it happen?

Thank you for your answer and you make good points. Welsh Nationalists rarely get more than 10% support, hence "tendency" you express the mechanics of separation eloquently but the question of SHOULD still is unanswered.
iantoPF -- point taken. Any nation of people that desire freedom based on their own culture and other factors SHOULD be free to choose and that includes Wales. Thanks -- its a good question.
Thank you Aquasilver; Good points, but isn't Cornwall, Yorkshire, Geordieland and Cumbria also different people groups? would your argument make them independent also?
Why not, I had not thought that far, but it's logical and smaller government on a more localised level will always be better for most aspects of sovereignty, with the exceptions of national (UK) defence possibly and international trade.
There is a big difference between Wales and Yorkshire Geordieland and cumbria although there are still remaains of the old language spoken in that region the majority (even them who can speak it) consider themselves English
People will kove to where the jobs are. Nothing to do with national preference. Ask the Pakistanis and Poles. Where would the greater opportunities lie?
