To welsh or too welsh?

That is the question. I think.

The term to welsh (also welch) on a bet meaning to renege or avoid payment has been around all of my

lifetime.

Is it a disparaging reference to the Welsh or is there no connection to the Welsh people?

I bet you don't know!

I Welsh but I have no idea.

I’d happily renege on a bet though, so maybe it is based on us?

Permit me to enlighten you in respect of a bugbear of mine ....the inappropriate expression of being "welshed on"......

If truth be known the expression should be "Penned on".......

The Welsh were in fact the first to be welshed upon, and have carried the burden ever since of being incorrectly titled.

When America or the Colonies as they were then was being first settled, Welsh emigrants were promised land by William Penn (founder of Pennsylvania), only to find on arrival they had been gazumped and the land sold to others, thus they were "Welshed upon".

As fellow Taffs will testify we are probably the most fair minded, just and even race going.

I’ve never eaten Welsh Rarebit.

For that matter, I’ve never played rugby. I can’t sing. I don’t live in a valley. I’ve never technically shagged a sheep...

Calling all Welshmen ‘Taffs’ is the equivalent of calls by all Englishmen ‘Brummies’ or ‘Geordies’ isn’t it? I’ve never even seen the river Taff. I live closer to the Mersey!

I am Welsh and believe the saying comes from a stereotype from the English believing that Welsh people are unreliable or dishonest.

I would say that there are unreliable and dishonest people in all races but I believe that's how the saying came about.

No, it's a Hitachi!! At least it was until they closed the factory.
