Public Opinion in Penzance

The Brexit can has been kicked down the road again…

Posted on: 17th January 2019

The “meaningful vote” has left us with a meaningless Government, a determined but enfeebled PM and a powerless opposition. May’s deal is dead. No deal is dead too. Parliament has contrived itself into a triangulated gridlock. The Government is incapable of resolving this. While the Fixed-Term Parliament Act protects Ministers and MPs to carry-on, fear […]

Comment on tomorrow’s vote

Posted on: 14th January 2019

May’s deal is dead. No deal dead too. Parliament has stymied itself in triangulated gridlock. The Government is incapable of resolving this. After Tuesday’s vote we’ll be left with a powerless, rudderless Government and a zombie PM. No proposed resolution will be popular with everyone. But the most rational in these circumstances must be to […]

Meanwhile MPs are all at sea over what Brexit means for fishing

Posted on: 20th December 2018

Meanwhile MPs are all at sea over what Brexit means for fishing. They say they’re “seeking clarity”. Some have been seduced by warm words about becoming “an independent coastal state”. But they haven’t twigged. The agreement leaves just as much access for foreign vessels but with the UK in a weaker negotiating position.

I’ve been out and about

Posted on: 20th December 2018

I’ve been assisted by remarkable people, experts in their field, who are happy to stand with me in packed public halls to inform, engage, advise. I’ll do more in the new year. We should […]

Government’s Brexit strategy

Posted on: 6th December 2018

As the Government’s Brexit strategy continues to spiral into worsening chaos it’s good to see MPs insisted on having full access to the Attorney General’s advice. Everyone noted the local Conservative MP insisted on having this. So it’s odd he voted against the release of the information.
