Re: UKIP No1

If Kevin Cahill figures were correct and all investigations proved them to be correct, I would have thought after 10 years down the line we would have heard something by now. Or is there another conspiracy in the offering. The classic imperialist response to inconvenient situations of this sort is ...

Re: The Duchy Of Cornwall – Cornish Music Talent – Past Pres

An Daras have recently released a CD of Cornish language songs by the late Brian Webb and a CD with some Cornish language songs and Cornish favourites by the late John Bolitho. Great stuff. I see Pete Berryman has been mentioned - the Cornish Django Rheinhardt. Great player. He was with Ralph McTell...

Re: UKIP No1

In government, it is the English who were the architects of their own problem. They've denied themselves. If they hadn't insisted on Union with Scotland, interfered in Ireland, assimilated Wales (as they did for 300 years) and trampled all over Cornwall's (still existing) rights to its own parliame...

Re: UKIP No1

it is the English who suffer under the Barnett Formula, it is the English who are denied their own Parliament (as well as yourselves), so enough nonsense about English Imperialism. The hidden agenda of the Barnett Formula was to try to fool the electorate of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland tha...

Re: The English - Exponents of Cultural Genocide

Please spare us the simplistic twaddle, Cormorant. Or do you really not understand how the electoral system is weighted against small parties, how MK would have to stand in constituencies outside Cornwall to qualify for TV election address space, how the Euro constituency was repeatedly engineered t...

Re: UKIP speak Cornish

It is generally perceived that falling foul of Godwin's law tends to end up causing the individual making the comparison to lose their argument and/or credibility, as noted by a number of publications including in one article in The Daily Telegraph [8], however, Godwin's law itself can be abused, a...

Re: Fishermans children holidaying in France

I remember John Jenkin of Golant, who was born and bred in Newlyn (or possibly Penzance) saying that he used to sail to Brittany as a kid on Breton fishing boats. His youngest memories included hanging around the Breton boats in Newlyn with the other kids, so much so that he always thought that the ...

Re: Lib Dem MP Stephen Gilbert's Disturbing Hypocrisy

For UKIP, read EIP. They hate the Celts. Absolutely true. English Independence Party sums it up. The trouble is that they want to lord it over their neighbours, too. I can't see them wanting to give up the taxes they prise out of us, Scotland and Wales. I suppose the continuing peace in Northern Ir...
