PUBLISH IT NOT IN THE STREETS OF ASKELON

27 May 2011

In February I looked at the ups and downs of Cornish nationalism of late in this post. This is an update.

Campaign Kernow
The lobby for a Cornwall team at the Commonwealth Games, which closed without explanation in 2010, has been relaunched.

Petitions

The online e-petition at cornwall.gov.uk calling for a holiday on St Piran’s day now has 289 signatures from residents of Cornwall according to the Cornwall Council website today. This extrapolates to about a thousand by next year. Currently unimpressive.

A petition at digitaldemocracy.org.uk calling for “a Cornish assembly now” has 147 signatures from the UK today. This is not even a ripple in the pond.

And of course there’s the nationalist party coming fifth with thirty two votes in a Cornwall unitary byelection in January, Devonwall, the Cornish Fighting Fund

Notes

Tell it not in Gath, publish it not in the streets of Askelon… 2 Samuel 1.20
