Where Have All the Cornish Gone?

I walk in Aberdeen, I hear an Aberdonian accent. I walk in Manchester, I hear a Manc accent. I walk in York, I hear a York accent. I walk in Swansea, I hear a Swansea accent.
I walk in Penzance, Trura, Camburn, S’nozzell, Bude, Lanson, in fact anywhere in Cornwall, what do I hear? Not one¬†Cornish accent, be it Camburn, Trura, St Just or anywhere!
Either south-eastern English, northern English or predominately, it seems, Midland English/Birmingham…

There’s something rotten in the state of Denmark…
