You are now entering Free Berkshire

I send greetings in solidarity this week to the comrades who put up 'Berkshire' on a roadsign on the Wantage Road in Wallingford. While I cannot possibly condone the defacing of public property, I do stand by the cause of freedom for historic Berkshire and for the restoration of boundaries of all the traditional and historic English shires. Perhaps the tide is turning. Most of northern Berkshire was annexed to Oxfordshire by the stroke of a Whitehall pen in 1974, without so much as a by your leave.

As I write no group has yet claimed responsibility, but it does seem to follow the pattern of County Watch

Titbits from the Outer limits

The NF must be feeling a bit down in the dumps lately what with losing their parish councillor to the BNP (see a previous post) but every cloud has a silver lining. They beat UKIP in a Lewisham by-election last week, albeit by 6 votes and not exactly winning either. Also their candidate had previously jumped ship from the BNP. Swings and roundabouts.

Back in the Summer the Cornish National Liberation Army threatened to shout rude words through Jamie Oliver's letterbox, along with some nonsense about receiving logistical back up from the Provos (hmmmmm.....) All the hoo-har this generated in the media annoyed Mebyon Kenow, the moderate Cornish nationalist party. Well, the media love freedom fighters and 'Cornish World' magazine scooped an exclusive interview with the CNLA in which they claim 30 members. Tearing down Cross of St George flags seems a general tactic.
