There are many small indy/devolutionist/advocacy parties in England (MK in Cornwall, Yorkshire First, NEP, Wessex Regionalists etc) trying to gain traction for progressive, decentralist policies. Such groups should be supported by Scottish democrats just as much as PC in Wales. Yes, they might not be that significant in size, but neither was the SNP at one time.

The translation of the Communist Manifesto into Cornish has been reported on the Breton website Bretagne Info – Indépendance et Socialisme, a site associated with the left-wing group Breizhistance. Thanks to them for promoting the Cornish cause in Brittany.

At its heart is a collaboration with Theatr Piba from Brittany, producing a play in three languages: Welsh, Breton and French. 

Lavaret o deus “leave” hag “out”, da lavaret eo ‘kuitaat’ hag ‘er-maez’. N’eo ket deomp-ni da varn anezho evel-just, met ur wech c’hoazh e teu diouzhtu war hor muzelloù al lavar kozh “ar Saozon milliget !”, hag e chomomp un tammig sabatuet. Kement a liammoù hon eus savet gant Breizh-Veur abaoe hanter kant vloaz ma ouezomp mat e kendalc’himp da vont di, hag int-i da zont amañ, nemet marteze e kousto keroc’h dezho peogwir ec’h izelaio al lur saoz. Gant ma ne vo ket lakaet en arvar ar B.A.I. ! 
They have said ‘leave’ and ‘out’. Obviously, it is not for us to judge them, but once more that old saying “perfidious Albion!” hovers on our lips, and we stair in disbelief.  So many connections we have created with Great Britain over 50 years, we know we will continue to go there and they come here except, maybe, it will cost them more because the pound will be weaker. Here is hoping the B. A. I * will not be put in danger. 
Anat a-walc’h e oa e votfe Bro-Skos evit chom en Europa : o c’hoant da vezañ dizalc’h diouzh Bro-Saoz a zo atav ken kreñv, hag ar “Brexit” a roio tro dezho da lakaat war-sav ur referendom all. N’hon eus ket santet an hevelep c’hoant e Kerne-Veur ’lec’h ma vedomp eizhteiz ’zo. Er c’hontrol, niverus ’oa ar panelloù “leave” er vro-se, bet sikouret kalz koulskoude gant an Europa evit he hentoù. Gwir eo ivez ez eus deuet kalz tud da chom e Kerne-Veur evit o retred, hag eo echu amzer ar vengleuzioù-staen ha zoken ar pri-gwenn. War zisteraat eo aet Kerne-Veur, ha pa ’z a fall an traoù e vez ret atav kavout ur bouc’h da vazhataat, amañ an Europa !

It was fairly obvious that Scotland would vote to stay in Europe; wanting to be independent from England is still so strong and “Brexit” will give them the opportunity to set up another referendum. We have not felt the same desire in Cornwall where I was eight days ago. On the contrary, the “leave” posters were numerous in this country (Cornwall) aided a lot nevertheless by Europe for its roads. It is also true that a lot of people have come to live in Cornwall for their retirement, and finished is the time of the tin mines, and even china clay, Cornwall has faded, and when things go badly it is always necessary to find a cow to beat (scape goat), this time Europe.

Kenderc’hel a raimp koulskoude da vont di, rak kalz eus hor gwrizioù a zo eno, hag an doare ma ’z omp bet degemeret e St-Day, e Kea, e Sclerder, e St-Neot… a lavar deomp ez omp breudeur, hag eo a bouez bras evidomp ’vel evito magañ an darempredoù-se a dosta hor broioù an eil ouzh eben. Disparti ar “Brexit” ne ’z a ket betek donded hor c’halon, hag an harzoù a zo graet evit bezañ treuzet !.

We will continue to go there however because a lot of our roots are there, and the way in which we were welcomed in St Day, Kea, Sclerder, St Neot…. tells us we are brothers, and it is so important for us, as for them (the Cornish), to nurture these connections that bring our countries closer one to another. The seperation of “Brexit” will not reach the depths of our hearts, and borders are for being crossed!

Now I’m guessing that our ‘friends’ in Plaid and the SNP forgot about Mebyon Kernow again. MK really needs to make some noise about this if we don’t want to hear Plaid and the SNP calling for people to vote Green, LibDem or Labour in the Duchy. 
Westminster has already been bought and sold. Vote local this May:
