Migrant workers and Welsh hypocrites

Regular site visitors will know there has been a rather heated debate about the numbers of migrant workers coming to Wrexham and the region to live and work. Well, John makes an interesting point, aimed particularly at Welsh people who say our culture and heritage is being diluted by diversity:

"...As for Wrexham people worrying about Wrexham losing its culture and heritage - Wrexham will only lose these things, if Wrexham people choose not to learn them, celebrate them, add to them and pass them onto the next generation. Just cos your new neighbours are called Janusz and Magdalena, does not mean you have to give up your culture or allow politicians to bully you into doing so. It's your choice and I look forward to seeing you visit and get involved in your local museums and cultural establishments, learning the language, Welsh literature and Welsh/border history, exploring the area and supporting local industries and businesses. Nationalism without a real knowledge of your nation's culture and heritage is little more than bigotry."
