What about William Scawen?

1680 - William Scawen (died 1689) wrote Antiquities Cornu-Britannic. This is a book that should be got out to the Cornish public in all haste!

Rather than remove/replace the George crosses dotted about, why not get 'unflagged' properties to fly a st Pirrans and just 'drown them out' - surely quicker?

If you wrote to some of the major local businesses in the area and asked them to display one it would get the attention of all their staff and hopefully snowball?

Devonians are Cornish underneath, it's just they don't always know they are. ;-)

Strangely enough, the core document upon which Kernowak Standard (the current proposal for a Standard Written Form) is based is Jordan's Creacion of the World, written in 1611. Bewnans Ke was written around 1575, so both nicely within the Shakespearian period. Oh, there's lots of pre-occlusion in Jordan (gasps of horror from some). As for Bewnans Ke - there's lots of really flowery and quite startling language in it. Definitely worth a read. The KK hardcore might learn some new insults from it - the ones they use are wearing a bit thin after 20 years of it.

P.S. for the more open-minded among this list, give Kernowak Standard at least a chance. You can view the whole proposal on kernowak.com.

Unfortunately, the First and Last Inn at Sennen bears signs that proclaim: The First and Last Inn in England. At Land's End (the Land's End Company, incidentally, owns the First and Last Inn and the present landlords are English), the First and Last House above Peal Point also has signs includsing the words "in England". Anyone have a pot of paint?

Do you think we could set up a Banner sen Piran fund for buying flags to distribute to the Cornish! how much would we need? how cheap can we get flags? Any ideas?

We probably had such a character, or a number of them, living quietly and productively at the college of Glasney until the English tyrant Henry VIII put a brutal end to that enterprise some fifty years prior to your suggested date.





Henry VIII was Welsh, not English.

He was about as English as Queen Elizabeth II (Scottish/German) - i.e. almost not at all.

Instead of blaming all "tyranny" on the English remember that the Tudors (Welsh: Tudur) were Welsh. The House of Tudor began with Owain ap Meredith ap Tewdur.

The English haven't had an English ruler since King Harold II.

A slight aside but on the subject of the use of flags with a red cross on a white background. A friend has shown me a copy of a news sheet found stuck in the bars of his front gate, which seemingly originates from a newly elected/co-opted "Independent" Falmouth Town Councillor, who uses a flag of this design on the front page of his publication. Below this is a design which claims this as "A Cornish flag since 17 AD from Joseph of Arimathea to Arviragus".

The content of the news sheet suggests the producer of the paper could be a disaffected UKIP member/activist. I'm not willing to publicise this for the guy, but felt the use of the flag might be of interest. Someone living in the Falmouth area might be aware of who is behind this news sheet?

Living near St Austell, its always nice to see the Cornish flag maintained on the conical sand burrow at the top of the hill near Penwithick, just before you can turn off to go to the Eden project.

However to my consternation the other day, driving past there was an English flag put on underneath it.

Passing it the following day though - and said offending item had totally disapeared!

:-D

Well done, whoever you are!



Last time I checked Exeter was England

Normally you need to be unbiased to do a study not a nasty little racist.
