I don't think it will happen, Marhak.

To punish Cameron, as well as to keep a modicum of credibility (of course, nothing to do with actual support for Kernow), I think the libdems will make a point of helping defeat this. And seeing Cameron on the back foot, I expect labour will go for the jaguar, and show a united front to defeat him, regardless of the fact that many of Milliband's own MPs might agree with the boundary changes, not least Milliband himself.

For all the wrong reasons, I think Cornwall will win this fight in parliament... and Cameron won't be there with his Joker much longer. He'll lose the next election, labour will have a short even more disastrous stint, only for Boris to take control, probably appointing Ken London Mayor in his first big announcement!!

The point here is that with so much ineptitude, incompetence, disharmony and 'open' corruption in Westminster, this would be a unique opportunity for Cornish nationalists, either as independents or through MK, to wrest control of the Cornish political agenda, here and up there, but do we have the party or the individuals (or the electorate) to do that?!!

On revised constituency boundary changes "following consultation" reported by BBC today:

"Public hearings have been held across the UK to debate the changes, with some MPs unhappy that the proposals would abolish historic seats and create new ones crossing council and county boundaries.

The amendments announced on Tuesday would reinstate Mr Osborne's Tatton constituency in Cheshire, which had been due to disappear from the constituency map.

However, the review has confirmed that Conservative cabinet minister Ken Clarke's Rushcliffe seat in Nottinghamshire would effectively be split four ways and absorbed into other constituencies.

There will be another two-month consultation on the revised proposals before the final recommendations are presented to Parliament in a year's time."

There is no mention of Devonwall in this report unsurprisingly.

Yes, unsurprisingly...

What have our 6 current MP's got to say about it?

Does anyone write to them?

I presume Sarah Newintown & Sheryll Murray will just do what they're told, like two good little girls, but what of George Eustice, and the 3 Libdems (who will presumably revolt)?

Cornwall remains outside England in legal and constitutional terms. It is merely administered (since the 1890s) as though it were a part of the neighbouring country, and that is all. Cornwall's status is more than of a Crown Dependancy, similar to the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.

With regard to matters constitutional, I read this the other day and wondered if there might be any mileage for Cornwall in some of the ideas around a treaty (like a contract) being null and void if obtained by fraud, deception etc.

I'd like to think so, but we'd need money we don't have to pursue it. Even the Royal Commission on the Constitution 1973 (Kilbrandon Report) made mention of the doubts surrounding the legality of the 1890s administrative changes.
