Brexit- What next? Public meeting 27th Sept

Posted on: 9th September 2019

A date for your diary. A public meeting. 8th in the series I’ve arranged in the last 12 months. A cross-Party panel has been invited and there’ll be a panel of ‘fact-checkers” from commerce, law and freight handling. Arranged by Andrew George. Venue: Lecture Theatre, Penwith College More details and panel names to follow… (free […]

Cummings gets his comuppence

Posted on: 3rd September 2019

Boris Johnson today skewered himself on the sword of his own bluster and misjudgment. Meanwhile the real Prime Minister, Dominic Cummings, has seen his devious strategy of threats and dictatorial rule catastrophically fail. Johnson complains that Parliament is stopping him from negotiating a Brexit deal with the EU. But he’s made no effort to commence […]

EU leaders Merkel and Macron have called Johnson’s bluff

Posted on: 29th August 2019

EU leaders Merkel and Macron have called Johnson’s bluff. He assured them he could walk on water where Irish backstops and borders are concerned. They’ve given him 30 days to prove it. They must be laughing behind their hands. It would be entertaining if it weren’t so humiliating for the UK. For the millions who […]

Tories to introduce Parliamentary “Martial Law”

Posted on: 28th August 2019

The real PM, Dominic Cummings and his poodle – Mr B Johnson – plan to commit the Parliamentary equivalent of “martial law”. Suspending Parliament is a declaration of war on our democracy. They’re running away from being answerable. It is a cowardly abuse of power. There appear to be no depths of dishonesty, arrogance and […]

Conservatives saw fishing as “expendable” in 1972. They still do.

Posted on: 23rd August 2019

The Conservatives secretly described the fishing industry as “expendable” in 1972, when negotiating access to the European Union. Many believe they still take the fishing industry for granted. Liberal Democrat MEPs Caroline Voaden (SW) and Cornish woman Lucy Nethsingha (MEP for East of England) accompanied, local Parliamentary candidate and former MP, Andrew George, on a […]

Merkel calls Johnson’s bluff

Posted on: 22nd August 2019

Angela Merkel is smart. PM Johnson is out of his depth. The UK Conservatives planned to construct a story in which the EU would be blamed for a breakdown in negotiations. By asking Johnson to find an alternative solution to the Irish backstop the ball’s in his court. She’s called his bluff. 30 days to […]

“No ifs. No buts”: Brexit won’t happen

Posted on: 20th August 2019

Irish PM Leo Varadkar has made clear to his EU colleagues that it is not worth reopening Brexit negotiations with the UK. He’s right. PM Johnson is merely engaged in synthetic media posturing for his right-wing supporters not in a serious attempt at renegotiation. Leaders of other countries are laughing behind their hands, while attempting […]

It’s about WHAT a Government of unity does, not about WHO leads it

Posted on: 16th August 2019

Our primary objective should be to combat this Dominic Cummings Government, the advance of the right and Johnson’s “promise-anything” cavalier attitude to truth and integrity. If a sensible moderate majority of MPs can come together to head off the irresponsible catastrophe our country is destined for – if Cummings/Johnson are left to carry on as […]

Liberal Democrats

There’s an important parliamentary by-election today

Posted on: 1st August 2019

There’s an important parliamentary by-election today. In the rural Welsh seat of Brecon. If the Liberal Democrat’s win this seat from the Conservatives the Government’s wafer-thin majority will be reduced still further. It’s difficult to see how the Government can survive for much longer. I spent a short time there this week. I discovered rural […]

Cornwall deserves a fair share from Johnson’s magic money-lending tree

Posted on: 29th July 2019

  Andrew George has joined his fellow Liberal Democrat Parliamentary campaign team to call for Cornwall to get a fair share of Government investment in its services and economy from the new Johnson Government. Andrew said, “This Government is led by a man who can’t tell truth from fiction. There’s going to be an almighty […]
