People vote no...and yes to supporting England in the 2014 World Cup

Which way did you vote on 'the England question'?

SHOULD Welsh people support England in the World Cup in Brazil?

No, apparently.

At least that was the overwhelming view of the people who voted in our poll.

We wanted to discover your views on the ‘English’ question, and whether it’s wrong for people in Wales to support any team other than England.

A total of 353 people voted. Of them, 136 said people in Wales should support England, while the rest, 216, said they shouldn’t.

We also asked which team you would be supporting in the World Cup, from all those who qualified.

Confusingly, of the 203 who voted, most (57) said England.

In second place was Wilfried Bony’s Ivory Coast team with 51 votes, followed by Spain and the Netherlands with 17 apiece.

Swansea City boast a number of Spanish stars, so perhaps this was the attraction there, while the Swans’ Jonathan de Guzman is in the Netherlands’ provisional squad for the tournament.

So, even though the consensus was that Welsh people shouldn’t support England, it seems they are still the most popular choice to back out of all the teams.

    There is no confusion, you asked two separate questions and are deliberately (or incompetently) misinterpreting the answers. I suspect most cwho voted that they would support England also voted no to question 1 because it should not be an automatic thing for Welsh people to default to supporting England, it should be a case of choice.
