UK websites doomed
Fri, 02 Mar 2007
If Scotland does break away from the United Kingdom and gains its independence after 300 years of English terror and billions of pounds of London pounds, what happens to all our .co.uk web addresses?
Wales is a principality rather than a kingdom so the UK will have to be dissolved (not literally, we'll leave that to climate change).
Has anyone in Scotland actually thought about this?

No... cause it's not going to happen. Do you honestly expect the SNP to win then elections in May ????
Are you smoking crack? :-)
That would mean the scum having to work for a living as the SNP whipped their benefits away.
I think your .co.uk address is safe for a while.
Oh dear, are .jock addresses on the way?!
How dare you describe the occupers of Wales as holding power over a principality? How dare you! We were illegally invaded by evil Englishers who cam and made a principality of our proud country. We will rise!
When I say 'scum' I mean the scum element....not that everyone is scum! oh dear...I must read 'eats, sh*tes and leaves' more carefully :-)
We invaded Wales on the strength of a security report that the Taffs were developing weapons of mass destruction. The report's author, Baron Blaire of Sedgefield, was able to convince Edward I that there was no other course of action left open to him. If it had been up to me I'd have widened, lengthened and deepend Offa's Dyke and left the Welsh to stew in their own leek soup.
According to recent research (sorry, don't have the source), today's inhabitants of Wales are in fact the last surviving real English people. All the so-called English are Roman/Norman/Viking types.
I would argue that the Welsh are Britons as England hadn't been invented by the time the Romans had pushed them all westwards.
In 1603 King James VI of Scotland succeeded Queen Elizabeth, to become James I of England, to be the first King of what he called Great Britain.
If there's one thing that history has taught us, it's that too many people attach too much importance to things that happened a long time ago.
Just seems strange that England and Scotland were joined by a "Scottish" King, and now Scottish commoners are now trying to split us.
