"Cornish People Granted Serf Status"

Posted on the 24 April 2014 by Markwadsworth @Mark_Wadsworth

From the BBC:
Cornish people have been granted serf status under Prince Charles' new rules for his now independent Duchy.
Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander will make the announcement on a visit to the country later.
Dick Cole, leader of Mebyon Kernow, which campaigned for Cornish devolution, said: "This is a fantastic development. This is a proud day for Cornwall. We salute our new overlord!"
The Cornish will gain the same status as communities in mediaeval and feudal times. Elections have been deemed unnecessary and the leaders of Mebyon Kernow will be burned at the stake.
A spokesman for Prince Charles, who is due to visit Bodmin as soon as they have finished building a castle for him, said:
"Cornish people have a proud history and a distinct identity. I am delighted that we have been able to officially recognize this and afford the Cornish people the same status as their forefathers."
