Quote..And I'm Rip Van Winkle.....Not much of a reply was it?
That makes us English.....The same as you.Marhak wrote:If Scots assert their identity, or the Welsh stand firm on theirs, or if the Cornish defend their own distinctiveness, then they're derided as "nationalists". But I'll tell you this - none of us has EVER descended to the objectionable and disgraceful kind of nationalism than the Bullingdon boys did today! But they are never "nationalist", are they?
The English have every right to be English. No argument with that whatsoever, and every Celt will agree. But the Scots have an equal right to be Scots, the Welsh to be Welsh, the Cornish to be Cornish. So, what does that make those (like Shady) who insist otherwise? I invite descriptions......
Getting close, now you just have to replace England with Britain.Shady wrote:You just happen to have been born (I presume you were born in Cornwall) in Cornwall which is a country of England.

Got a link to this legal document have you?Marhak wrote:My Scots friends tell me that the EIS in Westminster (or Wastemonster as they call it) have today exceeded even their own high degrees of sheer bloody arrogance.
They have issued a "legal" statement claiming that Scotland is only a part of Greater England. That Scotland and the Scots don't exist. They are English. That not even Britain exists.....Jesus WEPT! Is there no end to it?
They have been doing this to Kernow for ages, with help from their cronies in the media, but I can't believe that their arrogance would try this on with Scotland!
Does this sound familiar? "We are the Borg. You will be assimilated. We will add your distinctiveness to our own. Resistance is futile!" (That's what they think!)
Yes correct Marhak.Marhak wrote:England...first written mention (as Englaland) 890 AD. Named from immigrant settlers from Angeln, Germany, these being lumped together with another German immigrant group from Saxony. Language, a Germanic one, very akin to modern Frisian
Cornwall (Kernow) first written mention c.400 AD. Half a millenium earlier, and probably a good deal older than that. Native people mostly descended from the first re-settlers of an empty Britain after the last Ice Age, c.11,000 BC and originating from Atlantic Europe (as confirmed by the recent Oxford Univ.- Wellcome Trust genetic survey of Britain). Language, from c.3000 BC onwards: a Celtic one, which also originated in Atlantic Europe.
Different people. Different origins. Different languages. Different cultures. Different histories. Not something to be derided or airbrushed away, but something to be celebrated and encouraged, as diversity brings dynamism to society. Homogenising peoples produces automatons. Not the sort of society I'd want to live in. Well, you wouldn't live - you'd be directed from cradle to grave, like the Borg Collective. No thanks.
Well Marhak that's not quite true is it? Because I've spent sometime reading through previous threads on this site & it seems that it's you who has ruined it.Marhak wrote:And no, you're probably not an Islamic Jihaddy nut-job. Just the usual anti-Cornish nut-job that's plagued this forum since it started.
Is that because you're another plastic Cornish person?Carbilly wrote:Yes, I think you undeniably are - probably the only thing that we're all in agreement on...PS.By the way,I'm white,middle aged & very pro English.....And probably more right wing than most.
