BBC Survey shows – Cornish nationalism is dead in the water – Calls for Mebyon Kernow to disband!
Eddie Bone, the Campaign Director for the Campaign for an English Parliament, said:-
“Mebyon Kernow, the Cornish National party seeks independence for Cornwall and wants to be a nation distinct from England, however the latest BBC and YouGov survey on English identity shows that 62% of people living in Cornwall don’t just identify as being English BUT are proud to be English”.
Eddie Bone continued:-
“The time has come to give a greater voice to England as a nation because this would also be giving a greater voice to the counties of England. By giving the Cornish County Council a greater voice working with an English government would effectively silence Mebyon Kernow calls for an independent Cornwall”.
“Mebyon Kernow’s claims that they have support for Cornish independence in Cornwall now look ridiculous and hollow. Their credibility has been smashed on the rocks of English pride and Cornish nationalism is now shown to be dead in the water! Kebyon Kernow should give any idea of Cornish independence up because it is clear that the Cornish County of England doesn’t want it”
“The Cornish rightly see themselves as both a strong county and as part of England and the English nation, Mebyon Kernow should respect the wishes of the majority of the Cornish and disband!”
