Cornwall has the strongest independence movement

Cornwall has the strongest independence movement within England.

The peninsula has its own language, three elected councillors from a nationalist party and thousands of people who identify as being Cornish and not English.

"We want to see Cornwall recognised as a nation and not a region of England”
Dick Cole
Mebyon Kernow

According to Cornwall Council, in the 2011 census 73,200 people out of a total population of 530,000 said they had a Cornish national identity.

"Cornwall is one of the historic nations of Britain, same as Wales, Scotland," said Dick Cole, leader of nationalist party Mebyon Kernow.

"It is not a region of England. We have our own traditions, culture and language."

Mebyon Kernow does not want to separate from the UK like the Scottish National Party does, but does want to be seen as its own nation, with a legislative assembly similar to the Scottish Parliament.

"The people of Cornwall have lost out because of the distance from central government. Independence from England would solve this," Mr Cole added.
