What does Brexit mean for our environment?

Posted on: 22nd April 2019

As the uncertainty of Britain’s Brexit negotiations continues, local campaigner Andrew George offers a further public meeting to inform and engage local people about the impact/opportunities ahead. The next meeting will take place next week in St John’s Hall Penzance and will include Molly Scott-Cato (Green Party MEP) and Cllr Sue James (Liberal Democrat Environment […]

EU animal protections

Posted on: 11th April 2019

In November 2017 Conservative MPs voted against transposing EU animal protections into UK law. Following a public backlash the Conservatives promised to introduce their own law; to recognise animal sentience – that animals have feelings. We warned that Government needed these laws before our departure from the EU. But nothing’s happened. As well as removing […]

Public Opinion in Penzance

The Government’s three years of Brexit negotiations

Posted on: 11th April 2019

The Government’s three years of Brexit negotiations have produced trade deals with such global superpowers as the Faroe Islands (and a few others). We also now live in a polarised nation which has become the laughingstock of the world. Parliament appears incapable of making ‘meaningful’ decisions. Whatever your view on Brexit, it would be calamitous […]

Are we confident they can decide?

Posted on: 6th April 2019

  Whatever your view on Brexit, it would be calamitous for this country if crucial decisions which will affect us all for the next 50+ years are taken by MPs who are fatigued and mentally impaired. (see attached article) The Government lost by just one vote this week while one local Tory MP abstained because […]

Brexit poll

MPs have voted to take back control…

Posted on: 28th March 2019

…from the Conservative Government which has spent the last 3 years negotiating largely with itself …but has failed. The Government should have responded to the EU referendum by bringing the country together. Not just setting red lines for the 17.4m of the 66m people in this country who wanted to Brexit. After a thousand days […]

Brexit poll

So here we go again. Big Government defeat. But no solution.

Posted on: 14th March 2019

Brexit – that vortex where fantasy meets reality – has left the UK humiliated and facing perpetual torment. In my experience there are a small group of EU obsessives who live for nothing else. For them, having a never-ending debate about the UK’s relationship with the EU would be heaven-on-earth! Of course it’s plausible that […]

There are NO “legally-binding changes” to the Withdrawal Agreement

Posted on: 12th March 2019

  Professor of EU Law, Michael Dougan, commented “There is still no mechanism by which the UK is entitled unilaterally to terminate the “backstop”” after analysing the so-called “Strasbourg Agreement” published last night. His Summary comment sent to me earlier this morning, after burning the midnight oil is set out below and his full analysis […]

Brexit Event Penzance

Success at last for the Government!

Posted on: 28th February 2019

Yes. Theresa May and her Ministers have succeeded in making the UK the biggest laughingstock on the planet. Fighting off impressive competition from the US White House they managed to scale new heights of shambolic ineptitude in their handling of Brexit to achieve a degree of national humiliation not seen before. Those who’ve attended any […]

Public meeting hears that Brexit won't happen on 29th March

Public meeting hears that Brexit won’t happen on 29th March

Posted on: 18th February 2019

Expert speakers, Professor Michael Dougan and Sarah Adkins, warned a large and divided audience in Penzance on Friday evening that the Government was many months away from being capacity to manage any kind of departure from the EU. Brexit will not happen on 29th March. Article 50 will be delayed. Andrew George who organised the […]

Brexit: What next?

Spare a thought for poor Lucifer…

Posted on: 14th February 2019

Thanks to that Donald Tusk he now has to find “a special place” for people who’ll give him and the rest of the inhabitants of Hell serious reputational damage! However, there is “a special place” for a representative on behalf of a Brexit campaign group or political Party to join me on a discussion panel […]
