The funding allocated to Cornish is just the tea money in terms of public finance. In the terms of hard-pressed voluntary organizations, however, it's a fortune.

So far, the delaying tactics gave worked marvellously. So far, not a penny has been spent on getting Cornish into schools or into the public eye. A lot has been squandered on such party tricks as jetting NJAW over from Dublin so that he can tell us about Roman Catholicism in Ireland, or the pronunciation of Hebrew in Israel. And a lot has been tentatively allocated to investigating placenames (Again? WHY?), or a cluster of overlapping and largely redundant attitudinal surveys. A nice litte earner for somebody ...

However, even at the present rate, a large proportion of the spondulicks will remain unspent at the end of the current financial year. That means that it will disappear into a budgetary black hole. Cornish receives next to nothing, and at last half of that gets taken away. The grand plan to derail the entire Revival is panning out nicely ...

 Random Information. 
 For many Cornish people and Cornwall, the Duchy, as shown by the Officers of the Duchy of Cornwall in 1855 in its dispute with the Crown over the ownership of the Cornish Foreshore, has quite a different significance, based on the original Acts and Charters of its creation. Cornwall itself in this framework is described, de jure, as a Duchy (as opposed to an ordinary county), and the Duchy estates are distinguished from the Duchy itself, having themselves been annexed and united to "the aforesaid Duchy". The Duke of Cornwall may even be described as Cornwall's head of state.
