On another forum I was asked how old the Cornish flag was.
Did a search here but could not find any info on it.

This sounds like an excellent idea. Living as I do in mainland Europe something like this would be a good way for Cornishmen outside of the Duchy to keep in touch.

I am a dual citizen and I am glad the countries I am bound to allow me that ability. I do so much enjoy the convenience of being a "dualer".



Me too!
My advise to you PiC is to keep all options open.

I've got a feeling that many of the English and French MEPs will not be very responsive to this idea. Possibly the Germans and Austrians will be more forthcoming, theirs being by far the largest language in the EU and also they have no minorities of their own pestering them. :)

Two things:
Can someone teach me how to say "I speak Cornish" and how to pronouce those three words otherwise I would be telling porkies if I sent that email. :wink:
Where does the email list come from? Is that only UK's MEPs?
