Some of the lowest paid people in the UK are presently worse off because the Labour budget has abolished the ten pence income tax rate, though belatedly the government is perhaps putting this right. I explain here (Soaking the poor) why I think about 48 000 are affected in Cornwall.

I’ve looked at some publicly accessible Cornish nationalist websites. Not one of those websites I’ve looked at, as far as I can see, has discussed this pauperisation of the poor in Cornwall, let alone protested it.

An odd silence.

Of course, individual nationalists may be protesting to their MP or the chancellor.
