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 […]

Putting stories before pursuit of truth – our media

Posted on: 9th January 2020

The media tell us that public opinion is sharply divided about the story they have spent the past few days ramming down our throats. Apparently the Harry and Meghan “story” is all Fancy a taxpayer subsidised Christmas break to a luxury Caribbean holiday retreat? Well, let’s imagine we have a female PM and that, just […]

2020 – Offering the benefit of doubt…

Posted on: 30th December 2019

Let’s offer them the benefit of doubt in 2020⁄ If what’s promised is delivered, 2020 ought to be a year to look forward to… The Prime Minister promises to restore our NHS, boost our economy, resolve the social care crisis, leap towards zero carbon Britain, slash poverty and to invest in education, policing, vital infrastructure, […]

Unbowed, resilient – post election statement

Posted on: 14th December 2019

Once again the Conservative is swept in on a national tidal wave, while we are swept aside! Nonetheless, congratulations to Mr Thomas on his victory. A positive campaign – to build a brighter future We fought a positive campaign – for our children’s future. For an outward-looking, forward-looking and compassionate country.

Our Campaign Is Go!

Posted on: 6th November 2019

“For Jo Swinson to say she could do “a better job than” Boris Johnson – or Jeremy Corbyn for that matter – is setting the bar very low indeed. “This election isn’t just about our future in Europe. It’s about the shape of our country for the next generation. “The Conservatives want us to become […]

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

Posted on: 18th October 2019

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 […]

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 […]

Badger cull continues to fail

Posted on: 9th September 2019

The Government’s badger cull was politically motivated, not based on sound science. Seven years on and after the culling of 40,000 badgers that reality remains. I opposed the cull then warning that culling badgers would risk making the problem of bovine TB worse. I helped set up the first community-led Badger vaccination project in West […]

Trump protests are counterproductive

Posted on: 6th June 2019

I understand why many chose to boycott or protest against Trump. However, I fear it’s counterproductive. It has the opposite effect to the one the protestors/boycotters desire. Trump may go back to the US with an impression he’s not universally adored throughout the UK, but he’ll have dominated the news and with sky-high public relations […]

Brexit – a deliberate ploy to avert attention from a climate of chaos?

Posted on: 9th May 2019

The 3 pro-Brexit Parties – Conservatives, Labour and UKIP – got their comeuppance from voters in last week’s local elections. Anti-Brexit Liberal Democrats did remarkably well, even in Leave voting areas. And anti-Brexit bed-fellows the Green Party also did very well. PM Theresa May concluded that voters were telling her to “just get on with […]
