Plaid Cymru supports funding for Cornish language!

'It is fantastic to see the Plaid Cymru Conference (taking place at Llangollen) unanimously backing a motion in support of funding for the Cornish language. As a long-standing member of Plaid - going back to my college days in Lampeter - I am once again delighted to see the Party of Wales support for Cornwall and its culture.

What a massive contrast to the MPs which represent Cornwall at Westminster and have failed to oppose cuts to the language funding or battle against the imposition of a Devonwall seat.'

Kernow Matters To Us (KMTU) says:

Despite signing an agreement in 2002, the Westminster Government have reneged on their promise to support the Cornish language by returning £150,000 a year of our tax money to us. This year, this funding was stopped.

That sounds a lot of money. Let's put it into perspective. An MP is paid £74,962 a year salary plus eye watering expense claims. £18.7 million has been spent on 230 'Brimstone' missiles fired off by the RAF in Syria and Iraq between November 2014 and 16 September 2016 to what effect exactly? There are other examples, plenty of them!

We now know that the current government in Westminster and their MPs in Cornwall despise us. That's why we have to turn to others for help.
