Oh, no reason to apologize, I think I got your point in your original
mail anyways. Probably should have put an emoticon to my reply, though.
Anyways, this other side you have been speaking of is definitly a very
disturbing one if it turns from a healthy "national pride" (which is
fine with me) to a "radical nationalism" (which is absolutely not ok in
my book). However, more on rightwing extremism and "Celts" in a
following response to Amy's mail.
