In Portuguese, the word "Bretanha" applies equally to Great Britain and to (Little) Brittany. Brittany was colonised by people pushed out of Cornwall by pressures resulting from the Anglo-Juto-Saxon invasions.
I gather that speakers of Breton and speakers of Welsh can still understand each other at least well enough to buy and sell onions. Speakers of Cornish should thus be able to do the same.
And since the Bretons still have a somewhat dodgy relationship with France, perhaps we could invite them to join the UK as part of a joint province with Cornwall...
