The Cornish are a Celtic People. A recent academic and scientific study by Professor Sir Walter Bodmer of Oxford University and other academics and scientists has established that the Cornish have the MC1R gene which makes them true Celts. Their arrival on these islands pre dates the Anglo Saxon English and their Country of England by thousands of years. The English Flag is not flown in Scotland, Wales, the Isle of Man, Brittany or Ireland, nor should it be flown in our Celtic Country of Kernow. Thousands of our people were murdered by the English and the flag of St. George is a threatening and warlike symbol.
If 100 people agree with me, I will run one month of advertisements in the West Briton Newspaper financed by a local wealthy Cornish businessman pointing out the fact that we Cornish do not care much for the Flag of Saint George. Our flag is the untarnished Celtic Flag of Saint Piran.
