Hi all

 

There are some true Cornsih people on here, those who are proud of where they come from and want the best for the place and the people.

 

However there are a load of little englanders as well, and even well intentioned discussions tend to degenerate when these relics of a long gone empire take over.

 

While the whole concept of forums is to be impartial I think the time has come for a "by invitation" forum, i.e. by recommendation, lack of troll posts on here etc.

 

Recent events, like the apparent demise of Cornish World, make me wonder if the time has come for a forum like this.

 

I am not political, do not "hate the english", but it obvious that a lot of users are only on here to discredit and denigrate any attempt to promote our Cornish identity.

 

No doubt they will start on me straight away but if the likes of Marhak, Truru, Team Kernow, shaz'ron etc get to read this first then I might have made my point.

 

There does not seem to be a PM facility on this forum so not sure how to communicate offline with folks like those listed above.

 

This is not an attempt to "go underground" or to encouarge any sort of dodgy activities, merely a plea for the ability to engage in meaningful dialogue with true "sons and daughters of Cornwall". Too much to ask ? I hope not.

Everyone, Cornish or otherwise, has their own particular part to play. No part is too great or too small; no one is too old or too young to do something.

If you cannot take everything that is thrown at you, and give as much as you take, your case must be very weak.

 






 

Hypocrisy is just what we have come to expect from you Mr. Harvey.

Some would love to keep the truth under wraps and out of sight, what that whole truth is, the jury is still out.

 

While I agree that we should have no trouble knocking back whatever arguments are thrown at us, it is the closed mindset of fervent English nationalists that trawl the interweb looking for an argument that cause the call for them to be banned. The types who have already made their mind up about the Cornish, and whose only intention is to prove to us how we're wrong. The type who no matter how many facts and sources you show them, they will still scream with their eyes closed and their fingers in their ears. They are all over the internet but represent a very vocal minority, and it is the more rational moderates we should be explaining our case to, not these troublemakers.

nige 999 the winter olympics hosted by Hadeas would be more likely than me being allowed on your proposed secret squirrel web site ...which is odd.

I say that because i'don't mind weather i pay tax and am governed from Truro or where ever...but it would never happen on the terms and conditions publicised on here ...ie on a next to aparthied basis with lashings of socialism and no concept of real wealty creation and generation....and to be frank the levels of anti english hatred would also need  a look at {not you....of course}

Hiya, Steve.  Found another way in (although you've used the name Buccaboo before)?

"proposed secret squirrel web site"

 

I am not proposing a secret squirrel website, what I want is somewhere where I can have SERIOUS and CONSTRUCTIVE discussions with like minded Cornish patriots and not have to put up with muppets making inane, tedious, repetitive, stupid and pointless posts trying to force their pro Ingurrland dogma on people, like myself, who are totally uninterested.

 

Not much to ask is it ?

 

Looks like TINE for me but the stupid firewall at work blocks it................

Remember a couple of World Cups back, when Saxonland totally surrendered to Brazil (ONE shot on goal in the entire 90 minutes!).  Now that they have an Italian manager, do you think Eng-er-land will replace their red cross on white background with the Italian battle flag? 

White cross on white background.

Of course, I had to go and look that up, didn;t I?  Is there anything the English haven't pinched from someone else?
