Cornish Guardian opposes Devonwall seat

The editorial in today’s Cornish Guardian has slammed what it described as the “political abomination known as Devonwall.”

I am very pleased that the newspaper has come out, so strongly, against the creation of a cross-Tamar Devonwall parliamentary seat. It is quite similar to an article I wrote in a recent edition of the newspaper, and this hard-hitting editorial is well worth a read.

It concludes as follows:

“The Cornish people have already been recognised as a ‘national minority.’ As such, we must be afforded the same respect as in Scotland and Wales and not have our boundaries breached by the creation of a bastardised constituency that neither respects nor recognises Cornwall, its heritage, its struggles and its aspirations.”
