UC was replaced by some, because of the perceived imperfections of UC.  
UC was certainly imperfect, but KK was no cure.
KK was never accepted, quite simply because people could see it was  
not really Cornish.

Politics has given us the SWF, and it will have some success. In the  
long run, however, it will be replaced, because it is so obviously  
It uses spurious graphs, it is inconsistent and is incapable of  
distinguishing different sounds in the spelling.
When I say in the long run, I mean the long run—I am not talking about  
the next five years.
