St Piran's Day message from MK leader
As Party Leader of Mebyon Kernow, I would like to wish everyone the very best on St Piran's Day!

It is fantastic that St Piran’s Day is becoming an increasingly important part of our calendar as, each year, more and more people come together in the name of our national saint to celebrate Cornwall’s unique identity.

Cornwall has a powerful national identity, reflected in the Cornish language, our music, dance, sport and a range of traditions – all of which are vitally important to our sense of place and the very well-being of our local communities.

And as we celebrate the distinctiveness of Cornwall today, I believe it is important that we also commit ourselves to taking political actions to make a stand for Cornwall and its people.

Such actions can take many forms. It could, for example, be about pushing for a more powers for Cornwall through our own National Assembly, supporting Cornish territoriality by opposing a Devonwall constituency, joining protests against the proposed £264 million cut to the local NHS through the STP, or joining campaigns to demand fair funding for Cornwall and its public services.

The important thing is that we do all we can to make Cornwall’s national interest the key political issue in the coming weeks, months and years.

Gool Peran Lowen! Happy St Piran’s Day!
