How can these English-hating Celts justify attacking a defenceless animal? Will we see any politicians apologising for the actions of these scum? Don’t hold your breath.
A horse’s face was slashed and anti-English graffiti daubed on a stables owned by a Cardiff woman who had moved to a village in west Wales.
Alison Hayes, who was born in the Welsh capital, found her seven-month-old pony with a 4in (10cm) wound on its face.
As she helped the animal at her land in Tegryn, near Crymych, Pembrokeshire, she also noticed graffiti written in slang Welsh saying “English out”.
Dyfed-Powys Police are investigating the attack.
Mrs Hayes and her husband moved to the area last year with the intention of opening a riding stables.
But she was shocked when she discovered their pony, Hope, with a bleeding wound on her nose.
“It is awful, she is very frightened,” she explained.
“She has a 4in piece of flesh hanging of her face.
Graffiti was sprayed on the stables
“I just can’t understand it – I’m from Cardiff, I was born there. My mother and father are both Welsh – what’s going on?
“This is a Welsh-speaking area and they might have mistaken our Cardiff accents for English, that is all I can think,” she added.
“This was an incredibly cruel thing to do. Hope is a beautiful, friendly animal and she was slashed across the face and mouth.
“The motivation of these people was ridiculous and to take it out on an innocent horse was wicked.
“Hope loved being around people but now I can’t get near her. She is terrified.”
A few Welshies are of the considered opinion that because the Welsh phrase sprayed on the wall wasn’t proper Welsh, rather some nonsense generated by a translation website, that it can’t be Welsh nationalists that did it. In fact, a comment on one website said it must be ultra right wing English nationalists to blame because it was duff Welsh. Indeed, so convinced are they of this argument that Smiling under the Buses thinks I must be an anti-Welsh blogger (despite being part Welsh myself!) and one commentator on the CEP blog, where this was cross-posted, asked if the post was going to be edited because the facts had been thrown in doubt!
I’m an English nationalists – quite a committed one I hope you’d agree – but I don’t speak Anglo Saxon. You don’t have to speak Anglo Saxon to be an English nationalist and you don’t have to speak Welsh to be a Welsh nationalist. The fact that the Welsh graffiti is probably duff (it was suggested by locals that it was very old Welsh) doesn’t mean it wasn’t the work of English-hating Welsh nationalists, it just means that it was probably the work of English-hating Welsh nationalists that don’t speak Welsh.
Smiling under the Buses is a Wrexham fan which means that I’m duty bound to loath and detest him and wish him a fiery eternity in the depths of Hades.
