Getting a foot in the door

The debate around the future of the UK is raging. How best can we ensure the Cornish questions is included and justly addressed in this conversation?

The Internet is one of many options but still underused by the Cornish movement. Mebyon Kernow and the Cornish Constitutional Convention should be mentioned for their tentative efforts on Facebook and Twitter (@CornishAssembly @MebyonKernow) but where are the other groups? On the legion of press articles about the UK and Home Nations that can be found on the web today rare it seems are Cornish comments.

Cornish campaigners should be monitoring the media and ensuring that our point of view is included wherever possible. A feed aggregator (Site here) of relevant news stories, useful in finding places for comment, is run by an English nationalist blogger. The site provides a list of articles updated daily where Cornish comments and debate should be encouraged. Couldn't we run such a list that would give Cornish activits a starting point for engaging the media? At the moment the pro-Cornish web presence seems to be moving at an inadequate speed for the pace of the actual UK debate.
