GB News presenter suggests English are being ‘exploited’ by Wales
A GB News presenter has suggested that the English are being “exploited” by Wales.
Former Brexit Party MEP Alex Phillips made the suggestion during her take on saving the union on the ‘anti-woke’ channel.
She said the English were “wearying perhaps” that their “prosperity” was being used to fund things over the border they were themselves “denied”.
These included services that are available in Wales and Scotland, such as free prescriptions and student grants, which are have been “gifted to countries that all the while seem to resent and snipe”, according to the presenter.
Phillips described having Wales option on forms as “confusing”, because it’s “hard to know what country you’re in”.
She also claimed that our “shared identity” in the UK is “baffling” for foreign diplomats.
Phillips said: “The English meanwhile never asked what they want, wearying perhaps from her prosperity being exploited to prop up political trinkets over the border that her own people are denied, from free prescriptions to student grants, gifted to countries that all the while seem to resent and snipe.
“If the UK sat around the dinner table it would quickly regress into a bitter family feud.
“With indyref two within five years, bolstered by a marriage of convenience between the SNP and the Scottish Greens and English Votes for English Laws quietly abolished last month by Parliament before anyone could notice, the situation is further complicating itself in the shadows.”
‘Hard to know’
She also said: “She said: “When filling out an address online sometimes it’s hard to know what country you’re in when scrolling down the drop-down box.
“If you were looking under G for Great Britain perhaps, or use the United Kingdom, or perhaps England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland all boast their own billings. This confusion mirrors the same circumstance we find ourselves in.
“The complex nature of our shared identity, baffling foreign diplomats and world leaders, as well as us, ourselves.”
