The BBC's anti-Cornish newspeak

BBC News - Grenade found in Cornwall garden

What is a 'Cornwall garden'? What has happened to the adjective Cornish? Is this just an example of the sloppy English of a BBC journalist or an effort by the establishment to bring Cornwall in to line with the English counties? Has the word Cornish not made it into the BBC's Newspeak dictionary? I wonder if we will ever see a Scotland haggis, an England rose or a Wales dragon?

Please don't forget to make maximum use of the BBC's complaints page every time you see them erasing Cornish truth.
