Yes, the same has happened on Facebook. One still seems to show a stunted member of the grey aliens pulling the flag from Andrew's hand, and he (Andrew) doesn't look too pleased about it - but is IS a still that might be misleading. We need some eye-witness accounts, maybe Andrew himself, and some clear video footage.

Someone remarked that the aforesaid stunted grey alien looks remarkably like the one who committed a shocking assault on a harmless guy trying to get a decent photo at Land's End, within a few hundred metres of the start, by throwing him into a granite hedge.

TK, try this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCkzxBHt ... re=related

Watch from 15:40, and the whole flag sequence is there, and looks pretty harmless.

You are so wrong on this one Marhak.
That stupid man shouldn't have ran out, potentially threatening the torch bearer's moment. The security is there for a reason - just look at how one idiot disrupted the Boat Race earlier this year.

Don't talk tat. The man was well BEHIND the torch bearer, was jogging and threatening no one. Secondly, he was on the public highway where he's every right to be. It wasn't a stunt, just a guy trying to get a decent photo of the occasion. It was HIS moment, too.

What about the painting out of the bilingual sign then? What have you to say about that?

Following a 50yd token flutter through the tail end of Saltash 'aided' by the front LOCOG Grey,
Ginger Grey, earpiece abuzz, reels in St Piran's before the torch bearer reaches the Tamar Bridge:

Ginger Grey with property stolen by....Ginger Grey!:

As you rightly point out, Marhak, Ginger Grey had a busy day.
He is a key player we are pretty certain to see playing further starring roles in the
Multi-Torch Coca Cola/Samsung/Lloyds Bank NON-Relay Marketing Cavalcade (The Spot A Torch 'Challenge'!):


There is plenty of recorded evidence that the LOCOG GREYS were instructed, determined and firmly resolved to prevent
the Cornish National Flag from being carried aloft across the Tamar Bridge to England.
The strategy was followed through to fruition.
Cornwall topped and tailed like a turnip!

Whilst I agree that the gentleman should have known that he was not to enter the "protective" cordon provided so kindly by the Metropolitan Police, although from the footage I have seen, it does not look as though he actually did, it has to be noted that there are 2 issues arising from this occurrence.

1/ The response by the Metropolitan Police was way over the top, 3 burly Policemen to prevent 1 elderly gentleman from getting too close, throwing him across the width of the road into a Cornish hedge, and then jumping on top of him. This action "potentially" threatened the old mans life, (thank god he wasn't wearing a back-pack). It was a situation where 1 of the "protection" officers could have just had a quite word, and sorted the whole thing out without recourse to violence.

2/ The other thing that this over-reaction caused was the opportunity for someone who really wanted to disrupt the proceedings to enter the already, unnecessarily, breached cordon, and gain access to the torch and barer. ~Now, anyone who does wish to make a "point" by attacking the torch and/or bearer, will know to send in a couple of "dummies" first, which will leave the way completely clear for their "moment of glory".

So, I would say that it is you who is wrong. I hope the gentleman sues, and I also hope that those who were guilty of the over-reaction are severely reprimanded. Reprimanded for the excessive use of force, and for leaving the torch and bearer in danger.
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.

Did you spot the grey aliens with the push-bikes? Carrying v-e-r-y long, narrow blue backpacks. What do you suppose was in them, then, if it wasn't something that went "Bang!" when you told it to.

Ginger grey does look like a wee thug, though, doesn't he? Face like a bulldog chewing on a wasp. Bet he's a bundle of laughs.

Hold up - a new slant on the flag incident. On the link below, the Ginger Grey Alien clearly gets an instruction on his earpiece, then reaches forward and takes the flag. Andy Ball does not look pleased. We really need to hear his story on this.

Very sad, pathetic, ridiculous, illegal, surely, even...
Let's hope that the actions of this mini-ginger retard alienate the whole community in Saltash, and the backlash be big and bad against the oppressing forces of Westminster.
Given police forces & budgets are being slashed, as they are, I ask again, how can the Met. justify sending these thuggish retards to Cornwall and beyond, to jog alongside a goblet of Greek fire? Comedy or tragedy? Now that is the question...

You realise, of course, that the idea of the Torch relay was invented by Nazi Germany for the 1936 games to glorify the youth of the Third Reich? It seems that the tradition is being strictly upheld.

Not so new, Marhak - scenario as described by TK in earlier post above. Audio confirmation coming soon...!

A certain ironic consistency there, Marhak - This whole overblown commercial razzamatazz pantomime drawing upon, stimulating and exploiting the innocent enthusiasm of under-informed children and the no-alternative compliance of their adult carers for, at bottom, corporate gain, having its roots possibly around the time
:idea: Von Ribbentrop had an eye not only for the Duchy :idea: but was also 'seeing' Mrs Wallace with the full knowledge of her Nazi sympathising UK Royal paramour. Echoes of fascist jackboots rattle down through the corridors of time...

I look forward to that. And spreading it far and wide on Facebook.

Several inter-Celtic groups on FB. We've had expressions of shock and horror about the obliteration of Cornish from Land's End from as far afield as Australia and Chicago.

This unnecessary and brutish anti-Cornish aggression was raised with real concern by Dan Rogerson in debate in Parliament this morning.

As you say, Marhak, there is a British Olympic team, and the Olympics should be a pan-British event. Very clearly though, anything that isn't English is stamped on very throughly indeed.

And as you say, TK - Cornwall and the Cornish - completely top and tailed by the state building Olympic machine.

Good for Dan. I appreciate an MP that keeps his promise.
