Scottish MSP introduces motion into Scottish Parliament congratulating and supporting Mebyon Kernow and its campaign for an Assembly.
Nice to see some in the Scottish movement don't ignore the Cornish question. Many thanks to our supporters in other stateless nations around Europe.
Kenneth would appreciate your support for the motion below.
Kenneth Gibson (Cunninghame North) (Scottish National Party): Mebyon Kernow, The Party for Cornwall.
That the Parliament:
Congratulates Mebyon Kernow (MK), the Party for Cornwall, on winning three seats in the 4 June 2009 local authority elections, three more than the Labour party;
Considers Cornwall to be a unique and historic nation with its own culture, traditions and Celtic language, Kernowek, now undergoing a revival;
Considers that MK is a progressive party campaigning for greater Cornish self-government and a just, fair, sustainable, prosperous, more confident, inclusive and outward-looking Cornwall;
Supports MK’s call for the establishment of a Cornish assembly, and wishes it every success in fighting for a better deal for all the people of Cornwall.
