Cornish nationalists, relatively few in number and limited in actual political support, are fanatically proud of their Celtic heritage. Some of the more extreme nationalists occasionally burn down holiday homes, and like their brethren in Wales, while the very concept of Cornish nationalism tends to be regarded as absolutely ridiculous (and hilarious) by anyone not from Cornwall. In any event, nationalists will insist Cornwall is a separate country or constituent- [[UsefulNotes/WithEuropeButNotOFIt with England but not of it.]] Largely because it should be. Who says Wales gets all the fun?

** Bizarrely, King UsefulNotes/CharlesI offered to elevate Cornwall to a ''kingdom'' during the English Civil War in return for support from Sir Bevil Grenville. Though this didn't happen, up until the Great Reform Act of 1832 Cornwall was ridiculously overrepresented in Parliament due to a corrupt practice of enfranchising boroughs there where hardly anyone lived.
