The poster are in fact from the English Democrats / Campaign for an English Parliament and not the EDL. The EDL are an anti-islam xenophobic group that have no policy on English home rule and, more often than not, mix-up English and British imagery and identity. The EDP and CEP do however advocate an English parliament and have every reason to stamp out the Cornish movement.

I'll grant you that amongst supporter the boundaries between the EDL, English Democrats, BNP and Ukip can by quite blurred.

Why should they be against Cornwall, surely another potential nail in the UK's coffin. Are then against the Welsh too? After all Wales was clearly 'abolished' by the Act of Union which made the Welsh constitutionally Englishmen. Cornwall otoh seems never to have been formally incorporated into Wessex or England. Still logic is maybe not their strongest suit?
