Promoting the Politics of Hope

The Conservatives may have successfully clung onto this seat at the last General Election with a narrow majority. But there’s a growing campaign team of people who will fight for those the Conservatives can never speak up for. The struggling majority, the inadequately housed, our NHS, our schools and colleges, small businesses and the self employed, those who care for our environment.

Andrew George has vowed “not to walk away”. You can join a growing campaign team. We’re determined to win this seat back at the next General Election, to make a big difference, to change the direction of this country for the better.

Talking of dividing people…

…if the purpose of the Conservative Government’s policy on the EU was to divide people, promote division to the point of the break-up of families, growing intolerance and threats, the risk of the break-up of the UK and visceral disputes which will ta …

Good leaders seek common cause and stand up against those who seek to divide us

So it was just a month ago when the whole Cornish community – Christians, Jews, Agnostics, Humanists and others – stood with our Islamic brothers and sisters in peace and solidarity against intolerance and hate, following the shocking murder of hundred …

Speaking Up

"As you know, we lost by the narrow margin of just 312 votes. I was asked by news reporters immediately afterwards “how disappointed” I felt. I explained that I wasn’t disappointed for myself, but for the people I hoped to speak up for and who deserved to have their voice heard in Parliament.

After all, in Cornwall alone the Conservative Party, which secured the support of just 35% of the Cornish electorate, nevertheless secured 100% of the seats, …100% of the voice.

The Conservatives primarily speak up for those who are already more than able to speak up for themselves: the wealthy, the landed, big business, the privileged, powerful media barons, those who believe the poor have only themselves to blame etc.

But who’ll speak for the poor, the poorly housed, our NHS, our schools, our public servants, our environment, refugees, for Britain to be an ambassador for peace and reconciliation in a wider world, or even for foxes who’d rather not be chased to their death just for the recreational fun?

Of course, even though a clear majority of voters in this constituency agree we must find a voice for the voiceless, unfortunately ‘ thers’ successfully campaigned to split the ‘progressive’ vote and so helped to gift this seat to the Conservatives.

We owe it to the voiceless to do all we can to stop that happening here next time. That’s why I’ve been working to seek cooperation between those on the centre/left of politics. I will continue that work. I hope you’ll join me.”
