Cornish terrorist group declares war on students

15 October 2009

A self-proclaimed “terrorist” group in Cornwall have launched a campaign against the influx of students into the county. The Cornish Republican Army, dubbed the “Ooh-Arr A” has signed anti-student slogans which appeared at an open day event at University College in Falmouth. The graffiti appeared at a nearby railway station and reads “Penryn has had enough of students – CRA”. The protest is believed to have been sparked by the planned use of 231 new flats for students rather than local residents. The CRA, who want independence from the United Kingdom, have previously threatened to firebomb the restaurants of Rick Stein and Jamie Oliver, as well as claiming responsibility for burning down an empty warehouse and two derelict offices.
