Old Granny Mulligan said that H&W were a next of proddo vipers,, she had a hate of others in the UK, she once advertised a job with the caveat "No Welshmen need apply" Never understood this till I went to the UK in 1960, Sectarianism was live and kicking even down to football teams Celtic/Rangers?

Tell Granny that it starts with Celtic and Rangers.
"Up to our knees in Fenian blood" and "There's only one King Billy, that's McNeill" are traditional lullaby's sang by all.
Belfast has similar football clubs and their traditions are enshrined in the Good Friday Agreement.

Oh there's only one King Tony, that's Blair.

Doesn't quite roll off the tongue. Gran will be confused.
