Yes, I did see this. Some presenter/interviewer from way out of
Cornwall, perpetuating the Dolly Pentreath list and with the usual
sneery attitude we've come to expect from the BBC. 'Do you speak
Cornish?' he asked the barmaid. 'No," she replied. 'Thank God for
that,' he said.
Still, Mick, Ray and Denise held their own. Rather well, I thought.
I've missed the Radio Cornwall programme today on which some academic
from the University of Durham is being allowed to opine that the
Cornish, as a people, don't exist. (If this was done against a black
or Asian group, there would be all hell to pay and probably
prosecutions as well). Ok, so I don't exist, therefore this message
has never been sent.
