:) I like their flag, I hope they don't lose that, but please don't let this article sprout a phase of "let's make it compulsory in schools and let's scrawl it all over our road signs" like bloody Wales.

i don't think it's entirely unreasonably for a country to teach it's own language :roll: but i think it's probably fair to say cornish is dead if only 300 ppl can speak it. there's probably more ppl fluent in Latin or ancient greek!
