<t>Funny how David Cameron created the Shadow Minister for Cornwall and used the word Duchy instead of county isn't it?<br/> <br/> <br/> It's funny how Canada recognises Cornish people as an ethnicity and the 2001 census did too! My understanding of so-called British justice and the laws of England ...

<t>Right, I have read through the arguments on this thread and it is a complex debate indeed.<br/> As usual we are faced with the Cornish paradox, the gerrymandering and the shifting of poltical goalposts.<br/> <br/> <br/> 1. The BBC are not deliberately being inaccurate in calling Cornwall a County...

Well whatever he may have been- from all of this it sounds like he was  not a very nice person indeed.
Changing tack a bit, I can't find a reference for that Coren article in the Times, have even tried the Times itself.
Any ideas where it might be found?

I didn't mean YOUR tone, I meant the tone of the original quote! Sorry about that. No offence intended.

He sounds like a nutter from what you have described!!!


Are there any official sources, including your quote about what he said (allegedly)? Any online references?

<t><br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> It's understandable with only 700 speakers. But there is always a silver lining to digs and snideness, it increases awareness that there is a Cornish language, which is only a good thing. People were making fun of Welsh decades ago, some still do but it's taken...

That is absolutely disgusting. Thanks for that information.
Why? What have we ever done to them?  Other than give them pasties, steam engines, lamps, and oppurtuinities for nice second homes by the sea?

<t><br/> There is a final group , in my opinion the most dangerous group of all, those who pretend that there is no Cornish question, those who flatly refuse to acknowledge it.

<r>Two issues here.-<br/> <br/> <br/> 1. Kernophobia- I heard this word being used many years ago, others say they have never heard of it. I can find no reference either- so perhaps it was a neologism that someone used and I took for granted as a word- afterall we don't grab a dictionay every time s...
