The Autonomy Project

Posted: September 26, 2010 in self determination, unlock democracy

From Unlock Democracy: The UK – and England in particular – is one of the most centralised countries in the world.


Unlock Democracy’s new Autonomy Project lets you compare how your local authority compares in terms of self-governance with a variety of countries around the world and EU member states.


Kent has roughly the same size as EU member state Estonia and is larger than 12 US states. Even Cornwall is larger than Malta and Luxembourg. The Autonomy Project doesn’t give you answers, but if you give you an idea of what is possible.

“Even Cornwall” Cheeky buggers! Far be it for Unlock Democracy to involve themselves in –Keeping Cornwall Whole– let alone mentioning our de jure autonomous constitutional status that we are denied. Still, it seems like an interesting resource that they’ve produced and one of interest for all campaigners for Cornish autonomy.
