Here are some recent data which show Cornwall is getting a fair share of national funding and resources. Probably not what you will read on Cornish nationalist and Libdem web pages.

Cornwall and Isles of Scilly £710 827 000 (recurrent revenue allocation)

Cornwall is in money terms 24th out of 152 trusts, that is twenty three trusts have more money than Cornwall, the other 128 have less.
