This is the kind of nonsnese that devolution leads to! What next? Independent Mercia/ Independent Yorkshire? Orkney independence from Scotland?
If Orkney and Shetland did vote for independence they would be quite rich little countries with the North Sea oil.

Thanks for the responses. To address some of the nonsense above you might like to take a look at this articles that describes our political and constitutional history. What makes Cornwall unique: What makes Cornwall unique |Cornwall Info
Why don't you lot just organise a referendum to leave England? If you vote to go, you can stand on your own two feet. You can finance yourselves, and take your share of the national debt.
Then we English can build toll roads into Cornwall, have border crossings, visa requirements etc.
What happened to the 1st report?
They make a pretty good argument for Cornish devolution, now we just have to give it to them.
Indeed. And they are ethnically different from the mainland Scottish being more closely related to Norwegian Vikings. As I recall in the Channel4 people of the isles programme it was ONLY in Orkney that they found Viking DNA
