Aren't you forgetting something? "English/British"? Last time I looked Taffies were still British, so bank draft sent to: -

Excuse me old chap, you ain't wriggling out of it that easily.

England = Country
Wales = Country
Scotland = Country
Britain = England & Wales (two countries)
Great Britain = England, Wales & Scotland (three countries)

If you were born in any of the three countries, you can consider yourself English, Welsh, or Scottish firstly, IN ADDITION to being automatically British by default. I was born in Wales, and at 6 months old returned to London, where I have lived ever since. Therefore I consider myself Welsh born, but of English stock. But, you chose to be cheeky and call me a Taffy, so now it's gonna cost you for your temerity, you ain't having it both ways, so pay up!

Oh no! As you well know you cannot get an English, Welsh, or Scottish passport, only a British one. But that does record your country of birth, so I say that is good enough!

Wriggle wriggle ....

No you didn't! What you said was ...

They don't exist as you very well know. What I can produce is a British Passport, which shows my country of birth as Wales. And as you also well know, anyone born in England or Wales is considered British. Give a £20 donation to Seti and we'll call it quits.

Whoa, what planet is this guy on?

Obviously not our one ..... He was probably trying to con the Japanese into investing into the French aerosapace industry.

Not quits at all, a British passport is a unified one. Produce a Welsh passport & I'll donate £2k.

Well, you had better get your chequebook ready! I am about to apply to renew my passport which ran out a few months ago. Firstly, I quote from the Government Passport page

places of birth in Wales are entered in Welsh upon request


Secondly, I'll treat myself to one of these

How about the passport itself? Pound to a penny it'll be one of these......

The point is John, that there is no individual passport for England or Wales, you all get a British one. Sirius knows that full well, which is why he is offering to pay big money for something that doesn't officially exist. But, as I have said, I was born in Wales and can get that entered in Welsh, and it is quite permissable to have a Wales cover on the EU biometric one. Therefore he can opt out of the £2K, but my solution is as near as is legally possible, and as a matter of honour and integrity, I think he is morally due to cough up £20.

Sorry as you've already proven on these boards, you want exactness & as a "legal" Welsh passport will never exist in my lifetime, my money is quite safe. Anyway, I already donate to Seti :)
