Conservatives turn back on child refugees, again.

Posted on: 11th January 2020

It’s disappointing but not surprising. Conservative MPs who were so keen to declare support for the Save the Children #StandForChildren Christmas campaign just a few weeks ago have again voted to refuse child refugees sanctuary in the UK. Last week MPs, including local the Conservative, who made much of their declaratory support for Save the Children and […]

Bus shelters for airline users…

Posted on: 11th January 2020

Fifteen years ago I recommended that our society should insist on providing “executive airline lounges for bus users and bus shelters for airline users”. It wasn’t the three word and four syllable slogan that apparently works for political campaigns. So the campaign never took on. But the point was made. Our transport system seems to […]

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. […]

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

  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 […]

Euro elections – send a strong message – vote Liberal Democrat

Posted on: 17th May 2019

This election sees the strong return of the Liberal Democrats. It’s a golden opportunity – to send a strong message to Westminster. The UK is a country of lions led by donkeys. This Government has turned the UK into the world’s biggest laughingstock. The Conservatives have spent three years faffing and in-fighting. They offered multi-million £ ferry contracts to companies with no ferries. […]

Edward Hain – we need a hospital, not just a day centre!

Posted on: 1st April 2019

“Using Edward Hain Hospital as a day centre is just an attempt to save the embarrassment of the Conservative Government and local MPs. We want our Hospital back. With desperately needed inpatient beds and vital medical services.” Former MP and health campaigner Andrew George was commenting on news that the Edward Hain Pilot Project will […]

That’s what Liberal Democrat Councillor Colin Martin and former MP Andrew George are pressing for before Council Tax bills hit local people’s mats next month. Andrew said, “Cornwall’s Conservative MPs voted to cut Cornwall’s funding again last week. Cornwall […]
