“Cornwall and Yorkshire show regional identities run deep in England, too” – an article which perhaps kind of misses the point that for many Cornish people Cornwall isn’t in or part of England. In Cornwall exists a national identity distinct from English and/or British, and whilst I doubt you’ll find many ready to claim Yorkshire isn’t England, in Cornwall its a different story.
Today, as a fully recognised national minority alongside the Scottish, Welsh and Irish, it’s only proper that the Cornish be provided with a tick-box option on the 2021 UK census. I’ll be writing to the Census people and I strongly advise all those concerned to do likewise. You can find their website with contact details here – Census 2021 consultation. Please do take the time to contact them.
