Cornwall voted to leave the EU.
Membership of the EU hit Cornwall’s fishing industry.
Cornwall is a somewhat neglected area – just like Mississippi in the USA, or Barlanark in Scotland.
If Cornwall was a country, it would be poorer than Lithuania and Hungary.
Compare that with the £14.5 billion (14,500,000,000) UK government expenditure on London’s Crossrail project.
Nearly half England’s infrastructure spending is spent in London.
What Cornwall did not get from the EU was:
A thriving fishing industry
An end to poverty.
