Re: Royal Wedding - Kernow turns her back :

Argue that one with Professor Norman Davies, author of "The Isles". He is an Englishman but knows his facts, unlike some I could mention. Apparently, one of the titles bestowed upon Prince William by the Queen is "Earl of Carrickfergus". Jesus Christ, how provocative a move is that? It risks the en...

Re: CYMRU: PROTEST TO EQUALITY COMMISSIONER OVER HOTEL ISSUE

I don't think so, Factotum. Modern populations are mobile. Welsh speakers will move into areas that don't have a Welsh speaking majority. If your policy is followed, they will find it hard to maintain their view of themseves as speakers of their own language in their own country, and to pass that o...

Re: CYMRU: PROTEST TO EQUALITY COMMISSIONER OVER HOTEL ISSUE

Freedom of Expression is also a fundamental right which is included in the Human Rights Act. The employees should abide by company rules, it is for the health and safety of both staff and customers. If you keep trying to pick fights all the time on petty matters, it will devalue the fights that rea...

Re: Royal Wedding - Kernow turns her back :

Seen a few Union flags around accompanied by 'Sun' 'news' paper issued blood banners but my local has put up St Piran flags. Don't know if this counts as a 'right royal celebration' according to Trevorpen ? I'll ignore the stupid blood banner comment. In the Mall when people are coming down to see ...

Re: Cornish Twitter/Facebook

I'm sure this has been said many times before but have you guys ever tried to translate Facebook or Twitter into Cornish? Yes it has been looked into. The only way it can be done is if Twitter and Facebook allow community translations. Which neither of them do. I'm pretty sure Facebook does, I'm su...

Re: Proposed ferry service to France

Yes, because if you are speaking English you should use the Cornish names. If you were writing in Cornish then you would use the Cornish names. Côte d'Ivoire to that,Kitto. NB English names have often been contrived, distorted and imposed in order to frame territorial and topographical terms of des...

Yes, obviously you're right, people can call them whatever they want. I'm just suggesting it is good form to keep to one language per sentence ;), certain expressions aside,

I'm ashamed we didn't invade Iraq back in the First Gulf War and left it to a decade later under dubious circumstances. We could have prevented the massacre of the Marsh Arabs.

Re: Proposed ferry service to France

I prefer to show those nations respect by using their true native names, rather than those contrived by others. Its not about showing respect, its about being correct! I mean, do you go round calling Germany Deutschland? Do you campaign for the independence of Приднестрóвская Молдáвская Респýблика?

Re: IRELAND: SEC PROVIDE BRITISH ARMED FORCES WITH RECRUITS

Ireland has said it is not against the law and there are many Irishmen and women perfectly happy to serve in the RIR and other parts of the Armed Forces. This is just petty.
