As for the use of the Tudor Rose on signs, and the Tudor Monarchs being sworn enemies of the Cornish following the Rebellions of 14, Adrian is again choosing to forget that large numbers of Devonians took part (and died) in both rebellions (the 1549 Prayer Book Rebellion actually started in Devon).We do not find the Devonians claiming that the Tudors were sworn enemies of Devon and the Devonians, and defacing signs with the Tudor Rose on them.Any English person living in or visiting Cornwall should read their history books if they don't believe my assertion of an emotional and cultural parallel between the swatiska and the Tudor rose, in this context.I am sure Bob Burns can provide some apt references for suitable historical sources (even if he has failed to prove his point in misquoting my earlier posts).Meet them for less when you sign up using the best dating offers.
You have the absolute gall to compare the Tudor rose with the Swastika and everything that means to a generation that are in the twilight of their years.
My wife is German and she would be too, just as much.
Both she and I would feel proud to use spraypaint to do 'criminal damage' in order to remove the offending symbol, were it ever to be used in such a setting.
Yes Adrian, we are talking about events that took place 60 years ago, not 500.
If we are talking history, I don’t know whether you have heard, but William the Conqueror has laid waste the North of England in an act of reprisal. It only happened 1,000 years ago, but folk up here are still seething when anyone mentions Normandy, sees bottles of Calvados or cheap reproductions of The Bayeaux Tapestry (where is that spraycan). Please do not try to intellectualise and justify your paper thin argument, it aint right and it aint clever.
