I have been asked by one of Cornwall's independent councilors to blog about the campaign against the new logo for the Unitary Authority so here goes.
It seems that the new logo (pictured) was developed without any consultation of the Cornish public who nonetheless paid for a packet for it. Apart from its dubious aesthetic qualities one has to ask why our traditional crest has been ditched. If it ain't broke don't fix it.
Here is the e-mail I received.
As I am sure you are aware, over 10,000 people in Cornwall have now signed the petition against the proposed logo for the new Council, and over 50 Parish and Town Councils have added their support to the campaign. We wish to spread the petition as widely as possible, and wondered if the petition could be added to your website. Please find a copy of the petition attached. Thank you for giving this matter your consideration.

Well I can't link to a petition on this blog because there is no online petition, however all those who want to sign the petition can get copies by phoning 01726 884584 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
