England Devolve on the Euro elections: http://www.devolve.org/Newsetc.htm#NT94

Devolve! is of course non party political. And most radicals around Devolve! have little time for the Euro-bureaucracy. However, we have been committed to a vision of Europe since our early days as a Midlands regional movement - a 'Europe of 1,000 Flags'.

It also happens to be the case that those parties most rabidly opposed to the European partnership are also viciously opposed to devolution. They oppose devolving power to England and they oppose devolving power within England. We would ask all allies and devolutionists, if they intend to vote, not to support such parties.

 Random Information. 
 The Cornish Rebellion of 1497 was a popular uprising by the people of Cornwall in the far south west of Britain. Its primary cause was the raising of war taxes by King Henry VII on the impoverished Cornish for a campaign against Scotland, motivated by brief border skirmishes that were inspired by Perkin Warbeck's pretence to the English throne. Tin miners were angered as the scale of the taxes violated previous rights granted by Edward I of England to the Cornish Stannary Parliament which exempted Cornwall from all taxes of 10ths or 15ths of income. The Cornish had little sympathy for English wars against Scotland, considering that most Cornish were not English speakers at that time.
