Cornwall secedes, calls in Welsh help
Shortly after the Cornish were granted UK minority status, Cornish independence party Mebyon Kernow have announced the county has seceded from Great Britain with immediate effect and can now be considered a separate country. Teams of civil engineers and demolition experts began simultaneous action to destroy road and rail bridges and widening the Tamar to place a 300 metre water border between themselves and Devon.
David Cameron has condemned the move as illegal, but fellow Celts in Wales have offered aid by sending a dinghy from Swansea to Newquay carrying essential supplies of bara brith, though this was turned back by RAF fighters. Asked why Wales was helping the illegal nation, Plaid Cymru Chief Executive Rhuanedd Richards replied: ‘Well, it annoys the English, doesn’t it?’
