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. 
 1549 - War between Cornish and English... The 5th, the final engagment came, the rebels (Cornish) were outmanoevred and surrounded, and great was the slaughter and cruel was the fight, and such was the valour and stoutness of these men that the Lord Grey reported himself that he never in all the wars that he had been did he know the like. The Devonshire men went north up the valley of the Exe, where they were overtaken and cut to pieces by Sir Gawen Carew, who left the corpses of their leaders, hanging on gibbets from Dunster to Bath.
