Re: The organic myth of the British constitution

No doubt but sometimes I actually know what I'm on about. If your brand of wishful thinking and outright american right-wing batshittery is the alternative then I truly do despair for Cornwall. However sincere you may be, on so many points you're just plain wrong. If you don't like the banks set up ...

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

So Fulub, what is there? Time is short. Who now is even lobbying for an assembly, nation status, 'recognition' ... And if it's only a man-and-a-dog outfit, am I not right to be pessimistic? It seems to me the rational for Cornish autonomy was all set out clearly years ago, and is mostly more valid t...

Re: The organic myth of the British constitution

By 99.9% of the population 99% of the time, since they obey the laws, pay their fines, rarely demonstrate etc, and make do with having a bit of a grumble now and again. Also by the all the officials, police and armed forces who've sworn personal loyalty to Mrs Windsor her heirs and successors. Not t...

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

Also as has been pointed out, the Duchy shy away from any proceedings e.g. in court that might resolve the confusion over their status. They use that confusion and uncertainty as a handy smoke screen for their dirty dealing.

Sorry, no edit facility here. I meant to say "explain why Plaid only have a minority of AMs (and are NOT in power)"

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

Exactly! You've just eloquently set out exactly why Cornwall is stuffed, humped and shafted. Btw. even in Scotland the 'message' is having difficulty getting through the constant flood of disinformation and scare stories being regularly churned out by the pro-union media. And it's fairly easy to sho...

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

Apparently the Labour Welsh First Minster actually asked for the nukes to come to Wales, although in fact the site may already be too developed to make that possible. The alternatives are the Tamar and the Fal. It would clearly suit the Welsh and the English to quietly forget about Cornish aspiratio...

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

Does this mean that Plaid now consider Wales a 'region'? Given that most Welsh voters prefer a unionist party that's exactly what it will soon be. Wake up Wales!

Re: One Small Victory for Cornish?

Because I have no confidence that Maga exists for the long-term good of the language or for Cornwall (with every respect for those working there, no doubt in most cases with the best of intentions). The underlying politics are clear enough though, take over the functions of the existing voluntary bo...

Re: The organic myth of the British constitution

"What is the territory associated with this parliamentary sovereignty? Clearly it does not extend to the USA, North Korea or any other foreign country, and I'd assume it covers the territory of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, but what about Man, The Channel Islands, other c...

Re: The organic myth of the British constitution

Here we go again ... We do have a constitution in the UK, sort of ... It has never been codified in a single document as in many other countries, probably because we've never had a proper revolution. The official line is that it is spread over various documents and decisions and conventions from dif...

Re: Myth busting for Mebyon Kernow

As long as the English continue to hang on to their Delusions of Empire and Inherent Superiority over Lesser-breeds, any other brand of nationalism or movement for autonomy/independence in the British Isles is bound to be "Anti-English". The English and their mentality are the Problem, everybody's p...
