Re: [mcruic] CONIFA or Reply Privately

I have to admit that the sneering attitude towards CONIFA by some people does get under my skin.
Especially as they generally come from a non-nation state that is a member of FIFA.
Does anyone else see the irony?


No.

The "sneering" attitude, as you put it, is an attempt to instil some sense of consistency in their decisions on who to admit. Yorkshire was recently admitted as a member on the basis of them being a linguistic minority (speaking Old Norse!) for example.

Excuse me while I sneer (justifiably).


Yorkshire were admitted on the basis of a survey that showed 54% of people in Yorkshire identify more with Yorkshire than with the UK. CONIFA is all about people who identify more with another entity than with the recognised nation-state they live in.
