Re: PM Has Cornish Daughter!

thats my point heamoorman, if the baby was born in England I don't think the PM would have mentioned anything to do with the name. And the baby is being called Florence Rose Endellion, after St Endellion

Re: PM Has Cornish Daughter!

how about loveday as a name. I think just the fact that the PM has mentioned having a Cornish name does say something about his views on the Duchy. He wouldn't have said anything of the sort if the baby was born in any other bit of England, might have done if it was in Wales or Scotland.

hmmmm I'm not sure I seem to remember they messed around with the toll booths when I was a kid and before then you paid both ways, but as I said might be making that up!

I might be making this up but I seem to think in the dim and distant past when I was a kid (70's) you used to pay both ways

Re: Who owns the foreshore around Looe Island?

The way you write your comments using the term "they" as with most things you say hints at some underlying conspiracy by the English.

Re: Who owns the foreshore around Looe Island?

Re: Who owns the foreshore around Looe Island?

I don't think they do "promote" the name St Georges, they just call it that because that is its name.

No conspriacy here, move along please
