Just some after thoughts on republicanism.

Mention has been made of the French republic and its rather totalitarian centralism. Trust me I'm fully aware of this situation. Germany and the USA are also republics however and I'm sure all Cornish nationalists would be happy to give their right tooth to obtain the kind of autonomy enjoyed by a US state or German lander. All this to say that republicanism is not an answer in itself to the Cornish question. For me it is simply a question of principle. The royals, as part of the anglo-british establishment, have been at the spear head of screwing Kernow. The duchy itself seems to me to be the driving force behind what TGG calls the Cornish Genocide. Today they certainly don't help in any way shape or form. Equally I don't believe anybody is born better than anybody else. This unhealthy symbol of privileged along with the rest of the royal edifice is a large part of the glue that holds the anglo-british empire together. To kill a dragon cut off its head. Republicanism doesn't have the wind in its sails at the moment but then again neither does Cornish nationalism. This doesn't stop me from supporting both.

If you threaten the Duchy with liquidation perhaps it might consider trying to secure its place in the hearts and minds of the Cornish once more.

As expected from "Save Cornwall", a very well written, and well -researched, piece indeed.

Although the (native) name of Cornwall appears in the place-name Durocornovio in the Ravenna Cosmography (c.700 AD, compiled from sources of c.400 AD), the first recorded mention of Cornwall and the Cornish people as distinct entities was in 875 AD, when the Annales Cambriae record: "Dungarth rex Cerniu, id est Cornubiae, mersus est" (Donyarth, king of Kernow, that is, of the Cornish people, is drowned). That, of course, was 15 years BEFORE any written mention of an entity called England (Englaland 890 AD).

They seem to want the duchy lands to go to the Crown Estates. The Scots are not at all happy about the way Crown Estates deals with their property north of the border. It might be well worth looking into their problems and complaints and any possible solutions they have. Of course the real solution is independence ...
