The Country Of Cornissia

The Country Of Cornissia
Cornissia
The proposed name by YllwChlk for the independent country, declared formerly the South West counties of England.
South West independence is not a pipe dream. Far from it.

In fact, whilst not mentioned or discussed in the media to any great detail, it is nevertheless talked about in the towns, the parks and indeed on the streets of this great region.

The region here highlighted on the map, is the entire South West and if you do some research, you will discover that this region like many other devolved regions, such as Scotland and Wales, has its own language, its own culture, is historically Celtic by nature, identifies entirely as a separate people from London and is completely unique in its own sovereignty.

YllwChlk has called it Cornissia because historically, the region of Cornwall was itself a truly sovereign state with its own autonomous infrastructure and so politically, it would be sensible to allow Cornwall administrative domain of the entire South West.

Pronounced “cor-nis-sha”, thus differentiating the Cornish as specifically the people of Cornwall and Cornissians as the greater population of Cornissia, its name sings a beauty like the sun upon the seas, a silhouette of a sail and the crushing waves upon a scone coloured coast, as the enchanting lights of Truro begin to dance upon the dusk brushed sky.

In fact once upon a time, Cornwall was its own country and has itself suffered the many pains of foreign rule. Just like Scotland. Just like Wales. Just like Ireland. Just like…. India… China… erm… well, you get the idea.

Today, the undying Celtic heart of the South West and indeed also of the rest of Britain, is beginning to raise its voice.

Cornish Blue ~ Ye English Cheese

Finally, it has been found!

If you ask anyone from England to name a famous cheese they will probably say “Stilton”.

You find it in all the Christmas Box Selections pumped out every year by all the supermarkets and it is forever hailed as “The English Pride & Glory” of blue cheese.

But this is about as accurate as a squirrel on the moon chasing a pink lama up a tree.
