Reaction: What do you think of Cornwall's new 'National Minority' status?

This is Cornwall - 3 hours 12 min ago
The Cornish identity has been given official status today with news that the Duchy is being 'National Minority' status under EU law. The announcement, which will be officially made by minister Danny Alexander during a visit to Newquay and Redruth later this morning, has seen Cornwall featured across the natinal press, as well as on TV and radio news. The word 'Cornish' is also trending on Twitter this morning, with tweets including these:

Big day for the Cornish, formally recognised by Gov as a national minority group with the same standing as the Irish, Welsh and the Scots

— Cornwall Fire Chief (@CornwallCFO) April 24, 2014

Allegations that Cornish minority status leaked by makers of Jamaica Inn to take the pressure off are largely untrue.

"@susanpenhaligon: My Granny Pen is chuckling up there on her cloud. Can hear her now, 'the Cornish are not English, Sue' #KernowBysVyken"

— susan penhaligon (@susanpenhaligon) April 24, 2014

National Minority Status eh? Does that mean Cornish people are few and far between? Tell us something we don't know! #cornishndproud

— Dave Penberthy (@DavePen8) April 24, 2014

Remember: enjoy this massive historic moment, but bear in mind we have more steps to take. This was a huge step further. #Cornwall #Cornish

— Matthew Clarke (@KernowPods) April 23, 2014 We want to know what you think of the news. Should Cornwall push for more recognition as a minority nation? Could the Duchy be handed powers by Westminster to decide its own laws, in similar terms to those handed to Wales and Scotland? Or is it all just a fuss about nothing, which will make no difference?
