Thank you to rootschat for the red rose on the banner. Although my roots are mostly Cornish I do have some English genes :) and do appreciate the tribute to St George.

Polly please excuse my ignorance and for stepping out of line if this is the case. But does Cornwall not come under the flag of England ?



There is no offense meant in this post, just wondering if my geography is out of kilter

The Cornish want independence Trish  ;)  There is nothing wrong with your geography

So did some of the Scots, until they found out what was actually in the financial coffers.

Trish, I am not offended :) Yes Cornwall geographically is part of England, but we are very proud of our heritage as many other English counties are. I have a little Northumberland, Yorkshire and Lancashire in me as well as Cornish :) so St George is part of my heritage as well.

Thank you all for clearing this up, as a Lancashire lass who has lived here in Australia for the past 39 years I thought I may have missed something, though I have made regular trips back to see family.

I do think it a little sad though if different parts of the country want to keep breaking away to do "Their own thing" Pretty soon there will be nothing left. Just my opinion.
