It's all happening in Cornwall. First we have Cllr Jan Powell defects from the Conservatives to the Lib Dems. Now Cllr Loic Rich has defected from Mebyon Kernow, a Cornish nationalist grouping, to the Conservatives.

Cllr Rich says:

"I found it very frustrating being in a party that, along with the opposition parties, seemed to be in deliberate denial of the UK's economic and social needs."

When I was on holiday on Polzeath in January I was asked if I had come from England which rather brought home the strength of Cornish identity.

Welcome aboard to Cllr Rich.

When we have an English Parliament, Cornwall will vote to decide who represents them on it. That, and following the subsequent debates, may give them more of a sense of connection to the rest of England.

Hopefully this defection will go some way to calming the tense political situation in Cornwall.

We must be sure that Cllr Rich has renounced violence and has but his pasties 'beyond use', in a manner accountable to an independent body.

Scottish not "British"

 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.
