Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Thank you, this is the kind of answer I had inmind for my original question.

There is absolutely no problem for a large island such as the Isle of Wight to be its own region.

Regarding Wessex, since the process is bottom-up, as long as the existing Cornwall  county council refuses to join the rest of the Wessex councils in applying for region status, it would stay separated. Similarly for Cumbria.

And the rest of Wessex isn't that keen on Cornwall. At least 'round these parts.
