OK I may have gone slightly overboard on the title there but...
It poses the question, if Cornwall can become a minority afforded the same protections etc as the Welsh and Scottish, then why not Yorkshire? It's certainly got enough of its own cultural identity. Whilst I was never particularly for a regional assembly mostly due to the thought, why do we need another layer of scrounging politicians, which I still hold to, would it be possible for Yorkshire, or even a bigger conglomeration of the northern counties to become more independent.
OK this is probably a bad idea but I'm certainly not happy with the way the UK seems to be heading at the moment certainly from a political stand point.
What are everyone else's thoughts?
