I hope you all noticed the Cornish flag on the Royal Barge! Next to the other national flags for Scotland, Ireland (occupied six counties of), Wales and England was the St Pirans cross of Cornwall. A truly monumental occasion whereby the Monarch gave explicit recognition to the national character of Cornwall by placing its flag alongside those of the other home nations: http://mebyonkernow.blogspot.fr/2012/06/ed-miliband-wants-to-talk-about-england.html

"During the celebrations on 3rd June 2012, and in accordance with flag protocol, 'Gloriana' carried the Royal Standard of the United Kingdom and flags of the COUNTRIES of the United Kingdom: The Cross of St George for England; Cross of St Andrew for Scotland; Welsh Dragon for Wales; Cross of St Patrick for the Six Counties of Northern Ireland; and Cross of St Piran for Cornwall."

There can be only one conclusion. That, for the first time since Henry VIII's coronation, Cornwall was at last being openly and publicly acknowledged as a nation of Britain, separate from and equal in status to, the others - including England. And with royal approval. Whether your pro- or anti-monarchy, that is the highest authority in the land: http://thecornishrepublican.blogspot.fr/2012/06/too-little-too-late.html

Definitely not. I kept away from all TV, radio and newspapers during that fiasco.

Would that be why the St Piran's flag was snatched from the hands of one of the torch-bearers by one of the escorts whilst running with the 1936-originated symbol of the games? Perhaps it was felt to be too nationalist to be seen publicly at that point - as opposed to in a subservient position on a "Royal" barge...

Wouldn't surprise me Jolly. Officially the Cornish nation doesn't exist...
