What do you call a Sheep tied to a lampost in Wales?....

...That's not funny!

Don't the police have anything better to do?

A pub landlady who used a Welsh flag as target practice at a St George's Day event has been questioned by police over alleged racism


It is clearly a recurrent pattern, earlier in the week there was this:

A RACE storm could be brewing down a fictional Welsh noodle mine.

The Advertising Standards Authority has received 37 complaints about a Pot Noodle advert which features miners digging for noodles in a Crumlin pit, accompanied by a male voice choir soundtrack. Some have described the advert as "racist".

The Prime Minister isn't exempt, perhaps Cherie could sue him for Human Rights abuses:

North Wales Police is considering a complaint made against Prime Minister Tony Blair over allegedly using a swear word in relation to Welsh people

Ann Robinson was also questioned by the police for supposed taffophobia, are there any cases I've missed?

Alison Pearson was investigated by the police for anti-Welsh comments made on Question Time, despite the fact she hadn't appared on the program in question and she's from Swansea anyway. (and you'll never guess which force it was)

Has to be North Wales doesn't it? Nottinghamshire Police are similarly stupid but they would probably just instruct their officers to wear leeks in their uniform as a gesture of solidarity.
