    Set in a post Brexit Britain. Next up on the .eu site will however be another photography piece (as was the previous one).

    Surprisingly few people realize that there have been two Anglo-Cornish wars since the late 15th century, and that Cornish armies invaded England. The first time they got as far as London; the second, only as far as Exeter.

    Cheers,

    For credibility I would suggest that Northern Ireland left before Wales. The UUK government offered a hundred Euros to every Northern Ireland referendum voter who voted to leave.
    Cornwall is forced to stay until all the new lithium mines are worked out.

    Um... It's a STORY. Sure, yours could be perfectly good stories, but they're yours not mine. If you want a different one, why not write it?

    Also, how do you force a country to stay?

    Cheers,

    Easy.

    Look at what happened to Wales, Cornwall, Scotland...

    Dear Steve,

    In the 21st century? That's part of the point of the story. The world changes.

    Cheers,

    They'd never make it past the traffic jam at Stonehenge nowadays.

    Dear Martin,

    Hmmm... You're giving me ideas for new stories. Breton-Cornish guerillas with longbows...

    Cheers,

    Given the bunch of living-in-the-past arses in Westminster, nothing would surprise me. "We want independence from Europe, but you can't have it!"

    On the other hand, a good story. And we can but hope.
