Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

The OED definition of a Nation is:- "A large body of people united by common descent, history, culture, or language, inhabiting a particular state or territory." Therefore, it is clear that as the Cornish are united by a common descent, united by a common history, united by a common culture, united ...

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

You said Cornwall "has never been a country". Never, implies just that, Never. From the sketchy definition you provided as to what defines a country, I have shown you that it, in fact, was a country in recorded history. I did point out that written evidence is in short supply, for various reasons, b...

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

I must admit I've never heard of a King of Cornwall or Cornwall ever being a Kingdom. Can you give me some info? Of course there was a King of Mercia and Wessex, but not all historians can agree on this, they were in fact popularised by writers at the time. There is a lot of info on the 'net about ...

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

Very limited definition of a country there Trevorpen, BUT, in the past, Cornwall was a Kingdom in its own right. It, therefore had its own "parliament", its own "judiciary", its own leader, its own defense, its own laws. These are just a few examples of why Cornwall was a Country in the past. Indece...

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

Oh, I have. I have found a number of different definitions for the word, all legitimate. Which is why I ask you for the definition that you are using, so that we are able to discuss your previous post on an equal level. Unless you wish to be able to change your choice of definition to suit your curr...

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

I did not ask for an example, I asked for a definition, or is that beyond what you learnt at school? ;)

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

Trevorpen, please define the word "country". In your opinion, what constitutes a country? Personally, I prefer the word "Nation", but both words have been used incorrectly for many reasons over the years, that now I believe many are confused by the concept. In a similar way, and possibly for similar...

Re: Britain is failing Wales, Scotland and the regions.

Cornwall is not stuffed. Cornwall does suffer from apathy to a small degree, but mostly it suffers from ignorance. It is not an ignorance of the facts, but an ignorance that the official line can be challenged. Those who do challenge the official line are mocked and ridiculed, painted as weirdos and...

Re: Labour attempts to misrepresent Mebyon Kernow

Unfortunately, it is just the sort of tactic that the Westminster parties are so used to using.

Lying that is.

Have you informed MK of this development?
