We must move on from Brexit

Posted on: 24th October 2019

We must move on from Brexit. To breath hope into our communities. To rebuild our NHS, reinvest in our children’s education, seriously combat climate change and to tackle growing poverty. But Parliament has become paralysed by this chaotic Conservative Government… So much for “take back control”! It saddens me to see our fishing communities taken […]

MPs who vote for the “Deal” tomorrow will be selling out the Cornish Fishing industry

Posted on: 19th October 2019

The new Brexit deal could decimate the fishing industry – especially those in the more heavily contested waters of the western approaches (Area VII to those in the industry). Former Liberal Democrat Fisheries shadow Minister, Andrew George has confirmed that the pro-Brexit campaign group ‘Fishing for Leave’ is “absolutely correct” in their criticism that the […]

This doesn’t “Get Brexit done”?!! It’s just perpetual Brexit torment

Posted on: 18th October 2019

The new Johnson deal doesn’t “Get Brexit done”. It would merely create new problems and leave the UK in a form of perpetual torment …If you’re suffering Brexit fatigue, this route will leave the UK in a Brexit netherworld for generations. Prof Michael Dougan kindly came to Penzance for a successful and well attended public […]

Passing the exploding blame parcel

Posted on: 11th October 2019

Who will blink first in the UK/EU game of blame-avoidance? The Conservative Government or the EU? The Johnson/Cummings Government maintains its artful bluster. But their bluff has been called. Their empty promises exposed. I doubt the EU will grant Johnson the prize he craves – freedom to blame everyone but himself. So, the EU is […]

Weekly News Column

Posted on: 10th October 2019

Thank you to the media for highlighting of the daily struggle of local people. It helps to get an important message across. The BBC reports from Penzance this week exposes the plight of hard-working local families who endure the very low wage and very high house and living cost local economy. Promises of tax and […]

Caretaker Government must be Plan A for Opposition Parties

Posted on: 7th October 2019

History will not be kind to the collection of opposition Parties and independent MPs if they allow the Cummings/Johnson Government to continue fibbing their way to 31st October. The parliamentary maths is clear. A majority of MPs want to stop the Conservatives. A vote of no confidence followed by the creation of a caretaker Government […]

Brexit: What Next?

Respect and moderate language at our Brexit debate

Posted on: 27th September 2019

Local Parliamentary candidate and campaigner, Andrew George, has insisted that all who attend the next in his popular series of public events on Brexit must offer mutual respect and to moderate their language. Mr George will host and chair the event. Liberal Democrat MEP, Caroline Voaden will be on the panel with Brexit Party candidate, […]

“Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!”

Posted on: 25th September 2019

PM Johnson is imprisoned in his own web of deceit. His Government dragged unwillingly back to Parliament today to face uncomfortable scrutiny. Guilty of misleading the Queen, of acting unlawfully, of lying to Parliament and frustrating parliamentary democracy. PM Johnson, his Commons’ Leader, Mr Rees-Mogg, and Attorney General, Mr Cox, should “consider their positions” and […]

Value “wellbeing” – not wealth

Posted on: 18th September 2019

I strongly welcome Jo Swinson’s promise to put “Wellbeing” budgets at the heart of the annual Budget. We’re too obsessed with GDP and wealth. I’ve long supported this policy. We should shout about it. Of course the Government should regularly assess how its actions affect happiness. Measuring just monetary value misses the point of life. […]

Brexit – Electors must not be ignored… All have a right to sign-off on the final deal

Posted on: 16th September 2019

The Liberal Democrats’ rational approach to Brexit is already well understood. But claiming we would unilaterally stop Brexit without reference to the people through a referendum IF WE WIN THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTION is unnecessary, wrong and counterproductive. Of course I understand why Jo Swinson feels obliged to overstate her case, because the media would […]
