It is believed he will retire to private life and return to Austria, the country of his birth

Actually, it's possible he moved to Cornwall instead.

By gee, they're not very bright down there in Cornwall, are they?

There are other ways of commemorating the beloved Councillor Harris' walk - including the allusion to his nickname, 'Hitler'.

A slightly deepened sign with an added couple of paragraphs of 'interpretation' would put a bit of local history in its proper context.

Any suggestions as to an alternative name?
I'd thought of a couple but they wouldn't be passed for 'general exhibition', I fear.

You can vote on whether....
" you are offended by a beauty spot being called being called "Hitlers Walk".
So far the results are as follows ....
Yes .. 2,452 or 41.99%
No ... 3,387 or 58.01 %
So the non P.C blokes are leading, as they should be.

Stanwell . . . . in 1549 the bright ones in Cornwall suffered a severe setback

'Hitler's Walk' is so much trivia

Cornish Remembrance Day – Penryn Fair – Saturday 24 August 2013

August 9, 2013 - Communiqués (http://www.cornwall24.net/category/media-releases/) - Tagged: heritage (http://www.cornwall24.net/tag/heritage/), history (http://www.cornwall24.net/tag/history/)

On Saturday 24th August, two weeks before the Cornish Gorsedh is to be held in the ancient town of Penryn, is the annual Open Air Service of Commemoration in that same town.

This brief, but moving ceremony remembers the many Cornish people who, over the years, have given their lives in standing up for the freedom of their Homeland of Cornwall, as well as of the British Isles.
http://www.cornwall24.net/wp-content/uploads/penryn_memorial.jpg (http://www.cornwall24.net/wp-content/uploads/penryn_memorial.jpg) Last year members of the family of a Cornish victim in the current Afghanistan war were proud to join our ranks.


This year, as well as embracing this on-going tragedy, we will remember the slaughter of the Cornish intelligentsia – the Glasney-trained priests from Penryn, who died in 1549 in the ‘Prayer Book Rebellion’.

PEDANT'S REVOLT

Amazing how history can turn, on one single misguided act


To turn on two single misguided acts, is hard to imagine.

It's surprisingly not that long ago really, that on enlisting (1971), many Cornishmen were offered a card to read from to swear allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen with English on one side and the Cornish on the other.

What I was getting at was, that if the council are to replace the signs then, as I suggested in my third sentence, add at least a couple of paragraphs of 'interpretation'.

The signage then explains to non-locals and newbies the origin and historical significance of the Walk's name.
It helps keep the PC brigade at bay - they're always on the lookout (pardon the pun) for something to be outraged by.

I know about these things because I was regularly having to modify long-existing signs because some PCers didn't have a clue how certain historic locations came to be so named.

They're everywhere - you've just got to give them as little as possible to make a fuss about




Fantome, I did some reading on the Prayer Book Rebellion. Fascinating.

Time to ask a serious question - where precisely is this heading? I'm a loyal Cornishman with a 'surprisingly' biased attitude towards Cornwall. I was taught Cornish (Kernowek) from a very early age at school in the 1960s.

Surely, if the majority of people in 'Mevagissey' want to rename it 'Hitlers Walk' they should be allowed to rename it Hitlers Walk? I'm not certain, but I think, even 'Mevagissey', a name for most, synonymous with a very beautiful Cornish fishing village, is probably a fairly recent name could, offend somebody? Most of the odd, non Cornish sounding place names like that, usually came from 'Saint Somebody' albeit: St Mevagissey does sounds odd.

But all this PC garbage coming out in the press about why they shouldn't is fast destroying the very fabric of everything. Will the day come when nobody actually knows what anybody is actually trying to say because of the fear of backlash from the PC brigade. Or worse still, will they criminalise everything and sophistry add "Phobia' to everything it chooses as a good cause today? This sophist doctrine is fostered by delusional minorities and spread by degenerates, which invent, it is possible to pick up a turd and not get shit on your fingers. It aint!

As for prayer book rebellions (I did say I was biased) I'm convinced that was just some good spin to try to destroy a language that almost worked. You take away a persons 'native' language and you take away the 'native'. I think the English answer to the argument was something like 'the books were in latin that nobody could read anyway - so whats their gripe'.

Just to fuel the coals a bit!

Is my memory deceiving me, or didn't Alf Garnet say Hitler lived in West Ham for a time and was an ardent supporter of that football team ?

From memory, Hitler's sister was a school teacher in Liverpool.

Yer I remember watching something about the missing time in Hitlers life which was alleged he spent in Liverpool.
Dont believe it meself I think he was in Atlantis getting his instructions from the Illuminatti or perhaps the Knights Templars or if they were busy the Priory of Sion.
Oh dear now yer done it Drapes yer mentioned the Priory on a none dark internet website.
