“"Meanwhile, in the run up to the olympic torch being carried through our Country of Kernow, 18 homes were raided by the police and the occupants warned not to interfere with the torch procession. The oldest person threatened was 80 years old!"

I thought this warranted a thread of its own.

Are there any ongoing inquiries into this matter to find out what really went on? No doubt an MP must have been involved, or was it all a storm in a teacup or all hushed up hoping it would go away?”

    You tell us YC you seem to know it all, give us a few lines of your 'wisdom'

  • youngcornwall  |  July 22 2012, 9:04AM

    I am all ears hence the "?" When something goes off that is worth getting your teeth into, nothing comes of it. Plenty of threads and yap about history and things that very little can be done about it, talk about "can't see the wood for the trees", this is the Cornish way I suppose, we live and learn.

    The Celtic League site seems to be be the only place this was reported? http://tinyurl.com/d5456p7

    What's to talk about? Several people were visited in Cornwall by the police and interviewed, one person has lodged an official complaint any discourse maybe prejudicial to any case to be made. That said several English Nationalist's were interviewed by the police yesterday, one of whom wet himself in fear, I know there were photographs taken and I am sure they will be published soon. I didn't here of any Cornishman having a 'Tenna' moment when interviewed. :)

  • EndUKRule  |  July 22 2012, 11:15AM

    It has been on Facebook and several complaints have been lodged. A London based Human Rights legal help organisation is apparently involved as seemingly the police were heavier handed in this Country than in England with more oppressive tactics. Twitter has informed the organisation is called 'Big Brother Watch'. Also reported in Cornwall Community News: Read all about it here: http://tinyurl.com/blspzn3 Civil action against the colonial police seems quite likely and good!

  • EndUKRule  |  July 22 2012, 11:25AM

    Big Brother Watch: http://tinyurl.com/yhjejzu http://tinyurl.com/yhjejzuwho-we-are#.UAvUOZGbXU4 On Twitter at the time, apparently the Colonial Police threatened someone in their late 70's. A complaint has been made apparently. Also, a lawyer has been engaged so perhaps that explains the relative silence. These complaints can take a long time to resolve as we know from Imperial Police bully boy tactics elsewhere including up in England.

  • Slimslad  |  July 22 2012, 12:00PM

    " Colonial Police"? Bless.

  • youngcornwall  |  July 22 2012, 12:06PM

    For someone like myself who does not use Facebook and Twitters and very seldom reads any Facebook, I can understand why the police may have been alerted, from what we read in the press, prevention is better than cure so they say, if this is the case?

  • EndUKRule  |  July 22 2012, 12:17PM

    I agree. The Colonial Police who cover this Country are hopefully going to be sued and shown for what they are. Imperial bully boys. Noting the You Tube videos showing Colonial actions in Kernow during the torch rally. Wasn't it Hitler that brought those back? The EIS would appreciate that though. Meanwhile, up in England, I trust the family of Mr Tomlinson are going to take the police up there for every penny they can get.

  • Slimslad  |  July 22 2012, 1:34PM

    Or perhaps the police fully understand how desperate some people are to get their "cause" publicized,(or more likely have their "15-minutes of fame"). The types of silly stunts these people have got up to in the past probably justify an "interview". Not sure these people were ever "threatened", but it looks better, for dramatic purposes.

  • youngcornwall  |  July 22 2012, 4:06PM

    "Not sure these people were ever "threatened", but it looks better, for dramatic purposes." On past experience, I would say some certainly need protecting against themselves that is for sure

    i see youngcornwall is full of wind & p--s as usual slimslad not a lot better

  • Chy_Howlek  |  July 22 2012, 6:08PM

    They sure are. neither of them in Kernow, one plays with model boats and the other, anything but young, believes himself a 'Christian'.

  • Rialobran  |  July 22 2012, 6:39PM

    YC "For someone like myself who does not use Facebook and Twitters and very seldom reads any Facebook," Do you use a crystal ball to look at the Facebook you do not use, but seldom read? You need a Facebook account to read anything on it...

    Absolutely... Delicious.

  • Chy_Howlek  |  July 22 2012, 8:02PM

    youngcornwall was probably banned from Facebook. He ends up banned from most forums. A bit like Slimeylad who was banned from Cornwall 24. Written any hotel reviews recently Slimeylad?

  • Slimslad  |  July 22 2012, 8:04PM

    "Written any hotel reviews recently Slimeylad?"" Too much information, surely? LOL

    Now Chy has a little friend , Rialobran. Who seems obsessed with hotel reviews?

    Totally off-subject, but if it amuses, who am I to object? Chester looks nice.

    People were "spoken to". Not exactly the Stasi.

    "Not exactly the Stasi." Not exactly conducive to a free society with the right of protest either

  • Slimslad  |  July 25 2012, 2:42PM

    Or the rights of the vast majority, who wanted to enjoy a specracle without some idiots jumping in front of cameras, trying to look like a crowd?

  • Slimslad  |  July 25 2012, 2:42PM

    "Spectacle" Sorry!

  • Rialobran  |  July 25 2012, 5:52PM

    Spectacle? Hardly what I call a 'spectacle' a corporate sponsored over-sized 'zippo' being carried by has been sports stars and geriatrics is hardly a 'spectacle'

  • Slimslad  |  July 25 2012, 7:56PM

    " Hardly what I call a 'spectacle" Ah, but you are totally biased, as a disgruntled and envious "anglophobe" LOL

  • Slimslad  |  July 25 2012, 8:11PM

    Your choice of the word "geriatrics" Rialobran. May be a choice that you come to regret. http://tinyurl.com/brjzqk8

  • Rialobran  |  July 25 2012, 9:04PM

    ger·i·at·ric (jr-trk) adj. 1. Of or relating to geriatrics. 2. Of or relating to the aged or to characteristics of the aging process. n. An aged person. Can't see how I can regret using a descriptive word, I have a few for you but the sight just puts '*' in place of letters

  • Rialobran  |  July 25 2012, 9:04PM

    Site*, lol

  • Slimslad  |  July 25 2012, 10:40PM

    But using "geriatrics" in conjunction with "has been sports stars", as in... "has been sports stars and geriatrics"/ Could get you into trouble on any sighted site, slightly . LOL

  • Changinghouse  |  July 29 2012, 5:39PM

    Is that original article true ?

  • EndUKRule  |  July 29 2012, 5:56PM

    Yes it is. It was reported in not only this newspaper but others. 'Big Brother Watch' a London based human rights organisation put out a press release about it. The word is that persons victimised are now taking legal action against the police for compensation. The report on the BBW website covers the actions of the police: http://tinyurl.com/yhjejzu including a 79/80 year old being visited.
