A gowetha wheg,

This may be getting the discussion off-course - but these responses remind 
us that there is a considerable public need for an authoritative history 
accessible by the public on what happened in history to the Cornish 
language - and how this was brought about.     The constitutional position 
of Cornwall likewise needs retrieval fro its present position: swept under 
the carpet.  People like Angarrack have fulminated on this - but a more 
measured approach is overdue.  Tim Saunders has also written a series of 
articles - but they are privately circulated and I do not think he has ever 
published them.
