From The Cornish Republican – The English are not the enemy:
The English are not our enemy. The English are our neighbours and our friends down the pub. They are our lovers, partners, work colleagues, family, customers, fellow union members and much much more besides. The Cornish are partly English and the English are partly Cornish. Together we are all clinging on to this crazy roller-coaster of existence.
If we have an enemy it’s the establishment that refuses our rights…
Recording your ethnic and national identity as Cornish, and your country of birth as Cornwall, is not being anti-English, it’s just being pro-Cornish.
It is not an expression of anti-English sentiment and should not be seen as such. Writing in Cornish on the census is simply expressing that one thinks Cornish culture and identity deserves greater recognition and that the Kernow is special.
