You are probably all well aware of English nationalism now as a form of dominant group nationalism. The nation and people that were the driving force behind the UKs state nationalism, the English, are now starting to reclaim the same level of devolution as the Scots, Northern Irish and Welsh.

English nationalism is not the only example.

In the Spainish state the central region Castilla also has an autonomist movement.

For the Franco-french I've found this blog that argues for the idependence of Brittany and other national minority regions within the French state leaving a rump Franco-french republic: http://france-independante.over-blog.com/ Although it seems to have been hacked at the moment by French state nationalists.

 Random Information. 
 For many Cornish people and Cornwall, the Duchy, as shown by the Officers of the Duchy of Cornwall in 1855 in its dispute with the Crown over the ownership of the Cornish Foreshore, has quite a different significance, based on the original Acts and Charters of its creation. Cornwall itself in this framework is described, de jure, as a Duchy (as opposed to an ordinary county), and the Duchy estates are distinguished from the Duchy itself, having themselves been annexed and united to "the aforesaid Duchy". The Duke of Cornwall may even be described as Cornwall's head of state.
