Cornish Pasty Could Feature in Citizenship Tests
7:00am 29th April 2014
Could people have to answer questions about the Cornish pasty before they can become British?
One academic has told Pirate FM our new minority status will mean the UK citizenship test has to change.
At the moment it does not include anything about the Duchy, apart from mentioning St Columb Minor author William Golding.
Now other famous Cornish names could feature or references to Cornwall's most famous dish.
Dr Thom Brooks from Durham University said: "With the UK Citizenship Test we see broad mention throughout of the Scots, Welsh, Irish and English - without an explicit mention of the Cornish.
"That is something that is simply going to have to change.
"It could be Cornish traditional foods, so enter the Cornish pasty. The Cornish national flower, the fact the Cornish have their own language, the Cornish flag and what it looks like - or the patron saint, being St Piran."
Pirate FM asked people in Hayle what they wanted to see featured in the test.
Replies included, naming the Cornish king that ruled in Britain, how much it costs to cross the Tamar bridge and knowing not to feed the seagulls.7:00am 29th April 2014
