Plenty of groups out there campaigning for reform in the UK, plenty of people with good ideas and perhaps some sympathy for the Cornish cause.

If you are already in a Cornish cultural or political formation why not join a larger UK wide groups that you agree with and impose a Cornish perspective.

Then there is always old fashioned lobbying, why not send of the odd e-mail to these groups and see what common ground there is.

Yet another C24 repeat, I am going to post links to UK wide groups here.

Some republican sites to brows!

Internet made it possible for members of diasporic groups to communicate regardless of time and distance.

This website is about how these groups use the Internet - how Virtual Nations are created and used.

UK Watch, anybody who wants to take on the UK establishment would do well to check out this site called UK watch: http://ukwatch.net/

The Ministry of Truth: http://mo-truth.blogspot.com/
Might be worth studying this website to find best practice for asking questions of a less than honest government.

it started with a phone call...
.. to the Citizens Advice Bureau - "How do I prosecute an MP for lying ?". Who would have thought it'd lead to the unravelling of our 300 year old constitution and an insane attempt to get a law through Parliament ?

I am rejoining MK soon. I suggest that Cornish people consider joining nationalist groups in Scotland and Wales, not to mention the Celtic League. Whatever speeds up the process there, will speed up the process in Cornwall.
