With just one more day of campaigning in Scotland before the big vote on independence, there are calls for Cornwall to be next.

Campaigners want a Cornish assembly to be given more say on things like health, housing and the economy.

That would not be the same as independence, but St Ives MP Andrew George still thinks there should be a referendum to demonstrate support.

He thinks that should take place no matter what decision is made north of the border.

Mike Chappell is from the Celtic League. He said: "Yes our demands should be the same as the people the other end of this island of Britain - we demand better.

"I think this is something we can do together. We're a marvellous collection of people from all over. We're very confident - and increasingly confident.

"If you take the A30, isn't it ridiculous we have to apply to London to increase the speed limit on that road?

"Isn't it ridiculous that we have to keep deferring to London for every decision in our health service? Can't we make those decisions here? The people who depend on those services are the people here - not 300 miles up the road."

So Pirate FM is giving you a vote on Cornish devolution.

Let us know whether you want a Cornish assembly with more powers, based here in the Duchy. We will bring you the result at 5pm on Wednesday.
