Help! I Think I’m A Nationalist

Monday, March 6

Share:

From Seamas Carey (creator of The Reason Why podcast), comes the controversial sell-out comedy show on identity, second homes, xenophobia and bagpipes.

Who am I?
Where do I belong?
And who should I vote for?

Cornwall is at a tipping point. House prices soar, the population shifts, tensions rise.

Some people see it as a separate nation; others see it as a prime holiday destination and playground for the rich.

Seamas Carey is confused.

He is desperately trying to understand.

He’s watched a wave of gentrification sweep through his rural hometown. There’s nowhere to live, yet second homes stand empty. He wishes Cornwall was more welcoming and inclusive, but watches “up country” money sow division and suspicion.

Could closing borders and nationalism be the answer?
Where’s the line between pride and power?
What happens when it all goes too far?

Seamas needs help. He needs your help.
