How Democratic is the UK?

Posted: July 22, 2012 in democracy

How Democratic is the UK? The 2012 Audit produced by the Democratic Audit is now out. Sadly next to no mention is made of the Cornish autonomy movement, national identity or constitutional position.

Equally the ‘3 Celtic nations’ – Scotland, Wales and the British controlled bit of Ireland – are often mentioned when any impartial observer provided with all information could only conclude that there is a fourth ‘Celtic’ national identity in the UK. 

The only reference I’ve found so far is: “It should also be noted that, within England, support exists within some areas – in particular Cornwall – for the introduction of devolved arrangements of some kind”. Which it must be said is 100% better than the last audit. 

Has the Cornish movement failed to communicate its, and the Cornish questions, existence to yet another well meaning but poorly informed organisation or has the Democratic Audit chosen to gloss over inconvenient Cornwall?
