Re: Will UKIP score in Cornwall?

Just watch 'Northcliffe' outlets indulge in a massive circle jerk over UKIP's electoral 'triumph' and see how much coverage they give them on the laughable 'TIC' sight for winning 6 seats, then contrast this with the complete lack of publicity afforded to MK.

Re: Duke Of Cornwall-Prince Charles-Stealing From Cornish Na

Interesting to note on the comments section of that 'Guardian' piece someone calling themselves 'Caldy 1' states that when Chartirist Robert Lowery visited Cornwall in 1839, he found Cornish to be widely spoken amongst the miners. Anyone have any further information on this?

Re: Clipping the wings of Natural "England".

Who's this one then? :lol: I smelt ''Troll'' as soon as I saw the first post. I don't think it's any of the pond life that infest the 'TIC' retirement home for the perpetually bewildered English Nats (Trevorrow?) as the grammar is too good, but if it looks like a Troll and sounds like a Troll... :ro...

Re: An Amazing Document For Cornwall.

I know the Cornish have been shouting about this for some time, but they turn out to have been right.
Well bugger me, who'd have thought it, the Cornish were right?
When was this published? I don't buy Northcliffe publications but I haven't seen this on 'This is (not) Cornwall'.

Re: We never have laughed as much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For information, latest figures show that tourism, with it's oft-repeated claim that Cornwall would somehow 'die' without it, contributes just 11% towards Kernow's GDP whilst employing 14% of the workforce. Of course, the fact that those jobs are full-time, well payed and secure ( :lol: ) fully supp...

Happy 'Nos Calan Gwaf' to all! 'Bout time we reclaimed this Cornish Celtic festival as well. :P Anyone celebrate it? Any historic or recently revived activities happening in the Duchy?

Re: Slimslad on this is not Cornwall

I seriously think the man has 'issues'', like so many of the EDL/BNP/UKippers on there. I mean, it can't be normal to live in Newcastle and spend so much of your time posting anti-Cornish diatribes on a site that carries 'news' items concerning issues that couldn't be more remote to your everyday li...

Re: Cornwall Councillors Give Themselves A 20% Pay-Rise

If you want a council entirely made up of elderly, retired Tories then do away with allowances all together. if you want to encourage younger people from different social backgrounds then they have to be able to afford to be able to do the job. Agree with this 100%. Not saying for a minute that I'd...

Re: This is (not) Cornwall forum

To be honest, I don't know why anybody bothers with it as you're on to a loser from the start as the whole Northcliffe organisation is virulently anti-Cornish - one glance is enough to convince you of that. Apart from the BNP/'little englander'/UKIP brigade that infest the place and seem to do nothi...

Re: Can Cornwall Trust the 3 Tory MPs?

Clearly you fail to grasp what is being sought. There will be no extra tier of governance. The UA will become the Assembly, with a bit of reorganisation. With local control over local affairs, there will be appreciable savings.

Re: Can Cornwall Trust the 3 Tory MPs?

I shouldn't worry overmuch about the bottom feeders who lurk on 'TIC'. The last wild flailings of a dying breed of desperate Greater England nationalists who still lament the long lost days of Empire. If you ignore them and deny them the attention they so desperately crave, they may even take the hi...

The obvious glee with which this anti-Cornish site reported the fact that the Cornish flag was to be banned at the Olympics was matched only by - on news of the ban being overturned - the speed at which they removed all three offending articles. Will be interesting to see how rapid they are in repor...
