I was discussing the matter of the CSP recently with a friend of mine. He suggests that it should be turned into a fully elected body.

There are parallels to this. For example, the first Dails were set up without the permission of Westminster, and got on with things in Dublin, until the Brits finally recognised them...

Excellent idea.

And at the same time, set up our own Cornish Assembly? It could be based around a website at first, also inviting people to pay a voluntary 'tax' to fund its activities

Actually, no, you wouldn't need the CA Embarassed , but you could still ask for a voluntary 'tax' to fund a Stannary Parliaments activities.

I still think my idea of an alternative currency is a runner as well. The idea seems to be exploding in Europe especially Germany.

Yes, I had an article on that, which I showed round here, but unfortunately it failed to set the heather on fire!!!

Worth looking to South America. In places like Argentina and Russia which have had terrible currency problems, there has been a reversion to bartering, and there are even internet exchanges where people swap a hair cut for a handbag, or a fruit basket for some steaks.

Because no money is earned, there is no income tax either!!!

I believe that it's called "Earnings in Kind", and if memory serves, you are supposed to declare and pay tax on it, as it is deemed to be an income. Sad

What the exchequer doesn't hear about, the exchequer doesn't know. They make enough money off us as it is, and we don't get stuff back.

 Random Information. 
 1997 was the 500th anniversary of the An Gof uprising and a commemorative march (Keskerdh Kernow 500) was held, which retraced the route of the original march from St Keverne, Cornwall via Guildford to London. A statue depicting An Gof and Flamank was unveiled at An Gof's home town of St. Keverne and a commemorative plaque was also unveiled at Blackheath.
