Cornish not welcome at the games


This is the moment Andrew Ball carrying the Olympic torch had the Cornish flag taken from him just before he reached the Tamar. I'll leave you make up your own minds about the incident and how it reflects on the Anglo-British establishment's relationship with the Cornish identity.

The story is that the reason the flag was taken was that it had writing on it - you can't see it clearly in that pic - but it had 'Cornwall - Kernow' on the flag and any written material was forbidden.
