No, I'm most definitely a unionist. I see Wales a distinct entity but am happy for it to remain within the UK. A revival in it's culture and identity is a good thing but that doesn't mean i'm anti English or British.

Is this likely to happen? Boris Johnson wants a system similar to Australia's Trans-Tasman Travel Arrangement (TTTA) with New Zealand, which allows free movement between the two counties.
