What has the EU ever done for Cornwall?

We might well criticise what the money has been spent on and who decided how it should be spent (a national assembly for Cornwall democratically elected by the people should have had control in my view),  but there is no denying that EU funding has helped Cornwall face the massive underfunding we suffer at the hands of Westminster. 
Some might also be tempted to add the recognition of the Cornish as a national minority (FCNM) and the funding our language receives (ECRML) to the list above, however, in reality, these issues fall within the remit of the Council of Europe and have very little connection with the European Union.
