'PRAG NA?': The new project that aims to support and grow social opportunities for Cornish speaking.

My name is Brian Rogers and I've just started as Project Lead for this one-year Cornwall Council funded project managed and led by An Rosweyth, the network of Cornish language organisations, and wanted to ask for your help in spreading the word, so please feel free to share this with your friends!

'PRAG NA?', or 'Why not?', has two main aims, both of which are about getting more people engaged with Kernewek and speaking it.

General Election and the long grass for 'Devonwall'?

Redruth

18 April 2017

In a clever move, Mrs May has called a General Election. Although following Cornwall's own elections on 4th May, 2017, the electorate in the Duchy are likely to be 'electioned out', in one swoop, Mrs May will look to increase her majority in the Westminster Parliament and in so doing, give her greater ability and mandate to deal with those 'rebellious Scots' and to effect whatever deal she chooses over Brexit taking advantage of the lack of any determined opposition.

However, there may be a little silver lining to the large blue cloud!
