Re: Cornwall Council Sitting on £30 Million.

^ this is called a syncretic argument. No doubt that control of the worlds riches are a network of financial interests leading to the city and the US and percolating down to the forelock tuggers http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=2312847 who carry out their duties.

Re: Create A Cornish Administration.

Wow. So many points to contest I don't know where to start. The best way I think is to leave you a link and ask before you watch it; Have you ever heard of "Queens Bench" ? That in itself destroys your view and proves beyond any doubt that we DO live in a common law jurisdiction, and Parliament's s...

In my search on history years ago I discovered TGG and found it highly enlightening and informative and referred to it many times. TGG is the ...

Re: Create A Cornish Administration.

I have no rights, the difference is that I know it - and I know the state if it wants to can take any action. We only need to look at the case of Bradley Manning to know this. What did he actually do to get imprisoned? He merely told the truth and revealed documents to show the truth. His foolishnes...

Re: Create A Cornish Administration.

True, but behind Graham's weird rhetoric there's a real problem, the subversion of anything resembling democracy by vested financial interests. Decisions affecting Cornwall, usually for the worst, are not made here, not by the people who will be affected. They're made in "The City" or wherever the ...

Re: Create A Cornish Administration.

The Anglo American empire. Seriously. You don't think that there isn't a Chinese corporate empire or a post Soviet Putin empire? Or that the Soviets themselves didn't have one of the worst empires in history? We live in a world of multinational corporates which extend beyond national boundaries. Of ...

Re: Take down Waitrose

I think you need a more responsible title than 'take down Waitrose' - that's the wrong way to go about it. my italics here; Three European Union schemes of geographical indications and traditional specialities known as protected designation of origin (PDO), protected geographical indication (PGI), a...

Re: STOP THE CORNISH GENOCIDE, NOW!

TGG There is a lot of decolonizing of Cornish history to be undertaken and this is being done, but it is a long and slow process. Agree - and think that's an interesting observation. Certainly there is a good amount already but should require more scholarly attention which I think recently it has n...

Re: The Duchy of Cornwall - a feudal remnant

What a load of utter, utter tripe. You are scratching around in history going back 700 years, trying to say Cornwall is somehow not the same as the rest of England .... in the 21st century. Many English counties can proclaim a similar history, but feudal times declined from the 14 century until its...

Re: The Duchy of Cornwall - a feudal remnant

The Duchy of Cornwall was created out of the former Earldom of Cornwall by Edward III in 1337 in order to provide an income for his heir, seven year old Edward of Woodstock (later known as the Black Prince). From that day to this, its purpose has remained the same. An earl is a member of the nobili...
