For the respect and promotion of the minority languages of France.

In the UK the minority languages such as Welsh and Cornish are recognised and protected under a Council of Europe treaty much like the FCPNM. France however refuses to sign this treaty and along with Greece is the only country in the EU to do so.

Dear Friends

There is a new online petition that was today launched on the Downing Street website against the unitary authority bid and in favour of a Cornish Assembly. Please sign the petition as soon as possible and please circulate it to as many friends and neighbours as you can.

Please visit:

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/cornishassembly/


The petition reads as follows: "We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to (1) reject Cornwall County Council's bid for unitary status; (2) affirm his support for the principle that political power should be exercised by democratically elected representatives at the most local competent level of government; and (3) introduce legislation to replace Cornwall County Council with a Cornish Assembly, which shall exercise (i) such residual powers as may not be devolved beneficially to lower tiers of government, and (ii) additional strategic powers devolved from central government, including those currently exercised by the South West Regional Assembly and other unelected quangos."

Thank you

Dick Cole

St Piran's Day holiday - the government's response:

"As you may know, the Government is currently conducting a wide-ranging consultation on the nature of our citizenship and our constitution, including how best we celebrate our national identity. As part of this process, we have received a number of suggestions for new or replacement Bank Holidays, designed to celebrate or commemorate aspects of British life or history. At present, we have no plans to change the current pattern of Bank Holidays, but we are nevertheless considering all these suggestions carefully.

We are grateful for you for taking the time to submit your views."

This should not be the end of the campaign but rather the beginning.
