Regarding Joachim von Ribbentrop: he was a close friend of Sir Edward Hoblyn Warren Bolitho, Lord-Lieutenant of Cornwall from 1936-62, and was a house guest of the Bolithos at Trengwainton.

Now, who's the current Lord-Lieutenant of Cornwall.......? :o

Like the Squat Grey Ginger Sprinter:

(Oooops! Ginger Grey misses the mini-snapper entering the 'envelope' under the radar! Perhaps the little one sent the big one into the 'envelope' as a diversionary tactic in order to whip around Ginger Grey's knees. Smart!)

Saltash torch-beaer Andy ball has been in contact with blogger An Helghyer, and made the following statement:

"Hi, I'm actually the Andy Ball in question. The Met. police officer was not in the wrong at all. It is important that the Olympic flame is not overshadowed by a political message of any sort. With this in mind, LOCOG, who organised the run, have a zero tolerance on any writing. The Met. officer therefore saw the writing [Marhak note: the flag bore the words: "Cornwall/Kernow"] and took it off me, making the judgement that: "Oh, there's writing, let's not take a chance," and not: "That's definitely a political message, let's remove it". He said the flag was fine but the writing was not, as he was not to know if it was political - which it wasn't".

What Andy did not see, but any of us have, thanks to the recent, clearest video clip, was that the Met. man in question, who was behind him, had just received a message via his earpiece, then grabbed the flag.

Ignorance is no excuse. 'Kernow', the true name for what the English are pleased to call Cornwall, was first recorded as long ago as AD 400. If the Met. officer, or his instructor, did not know this, then that is not our fault, nor Andy's. Perhaps a local escort crew would have known. Unceremoniously grabbing the flag, and balling it up in his hands was, in any terms, an insult to it that would be tolerated nowhere else in the world. Not only that, it was also an insult to the ancient name of Kernow.

If LOCOG have a zero tolerance to political messages, perhaps it would like to explain the obliteration of the Cornish language from the eyes of the TV cameras at Land's End, prior to the start of the relay. I'd also be interesting in seeing if any torch bearer up the line parades an England flag with 'England' written on it, and see what reaction that gets. I think we all know the answer to that.

LOCOG has insulted our language, or flag and our name, all in one day, and the Cornish people deserve and demand a public apology.

'Bang To Rights' - Ginger Grey shouts to drop the flag to the leading Grey who turns around and obeys.
Ginger Grey Hoodlum from London then steals the Cornish flag:

Bless him - in an earlier statement, Dan also mentioned "Cornwall and England".

After that flag grab on the Tamar Bridge 'because of writing on the flag' there is no doubt in my mind why Penn-An-Wlas' was painted out at Land's End.

With regard to the actual flag, why has it been deemed necessary to have to produce our National flag with any writing on it at all?
Is this a case of flag recognition for dummies?
This is something that has been mildly niggling at me for a while now, did someone think that we would be unable to recognise it if we weren't told what it was?

However, I feel that the "reason" for it's hasty removal from the proceedings would have happened whether there was writing on it or not.
I also feel that the organisers of this event, should make an unreserved apology for the disgraceful treatment of our national flag. I can just imagine the headlines in the press if a Cornishman had treated the English flag with such contempt.
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.

Yes, P_Trembath you are right, the National Flag of Cornwall is recognised the World over and should not need such writing on it.

Surely, TK, the last runner didn't leave Cornwall until after he had crossed the Tamar Bridge, whatever the accursed Ordnance Survey might think. Don't go giving away half our river!

Dan Rogerson's mistake, not TK's. We can forgive him that as he had the balls to keep his promise and raise it in the House of Commons (which is more than the other 5 MPs have done - remember that next time the ballot box comes out).

Those who recognise Cornwall's National Flag will recognise it - those who don't (most, due to the England:Cornwall = China:Tibet style Anglo-orchestrated suppression and :idea: ethnocide :idea: of the last 500 years (ish) won't) won't and they are the ones who need flag recognition assistance. Therefore, although being identified with added bilingual text may be seen as disfigurement by some it would seem to be beneficial in connecting Cornwall's Identity & National Flag & True Territorial Status and helping generate greater respect and recognition for the Cornish Nation in the public imagination and the wider world.

:idea: Rogerson Demands Apology For Cornish Flag Grab - May 24th 2012 :idea:

'Liberal Democrat MP Dan Rogerson has urged the Olympic authorities to apologise for removing the Cornish flag from an Olympic torchbearer as he approached the Tamar Bridge.

The incident occurred last Saturday in Saltash as torchbearer Andrew Ball ran with both the Olympic flame and a St Piran’s flag on the approach to the Tamar Bridge.

Since then various videos of the ‘flag grab’ have appeared on the internet, which appear to show a member of the Metropolitan Police’s torch security team receiving instructions through his earpiece before he confiscates the flag from the torch bearer.

Mr Rogerson has written to Lord Seb Coe to ask for an apology. He also raised the issue during a Parliamentary debate on Wednesday.

Commenting, Dan Rogerson said:

“When the last runner with the Olympic flame left Cornwall and set off across the Tamar Bridge, he held in his hands a Cornish flag that was sadly confiscated by the police who were running alongside. Despite a helpful policeman initially carrying the flag with Mr Ball, his colleague clearly received instructions to remove it.

“This incident has understandably sparked anger across the Duchy. To many in Cornwall, this sends out a signal that English, Welsh or Scottish identity is fine, but that Cornish identity is not to be accepted by the London-based Olympic authorities.

“I have written today to Seb Coe, the Chairman of the LOCOG (the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games) about the incident. As a former Cornish MP I am sure he will agree with me that Andrew Ball and the people of Cornwall quite rightly deserve an apology.” '


Where is Cornwall Council Leader Alec Robertson's demand on behalf of the people of Cornwall for an apology from Seb Coe & LOCOG & London Metropolitan Police for this appalling, offensive and insulting international incident ?
Where is Mebyon Kernow Leader Dick Cole's demand on behalf of the people of Cornwall for an apology from Seb Coe & LOCOG & London's Metropolitan Police in response to this appalling, offensive and insulting international incident ?
Where are Cornwall's other MPs' demands on behalf of the people of Cornwall for an apology from Seb Coe & LOCOG & London's Metropolitan Police in response to this appalling, offensive and insulting international incident ?

Coming soon...?

Can we imagine Plaid Cymru, the SNP, Alex Salmond et al tolerating such a National insult?

Radio Cornwall (amazingly) reported this apology demand by Dan Rogerson this morning, and claimed it was they who gave the flag to Andy Ball. If so, they must have done it beforehand, because the clip showing the start of his run also shows him pulling the flag out from under his tracksuit, then getting the front Grey Alien to hold one end of it.

Am drafting a bastard of a letter to Coe right now. (The LOCOG website gives an address to write to), and suggest that as many people as possible do likewise. Mine will demand that the apology, for insults to our land, people, culture, flag and language, be as publicly broadcast as the event during which they were committed.
