Amongst the dark clouds …are a few silver linings

Posted on: 1st April 2020

We should of course look for silver linings in the dark cloud of this emergency. It has brought out the very best as well as the not-so-good in people. But the best seems to be winning. And we’re winning other benefits too: Less carbon emitted to our atmosphere which is great for combatting climate change. […]

£millions of Pandemic aid handouts for second homers while low incomers get none

Posted on: 16th March 2020

Fighting for justice for the low paid and self employed, many of whom face severe hardship from the Government’s emergency C-19 measures. Meanwhile the Government gives generous handouts to second home owners. The grants now being offered to Cornwall’s second homers who don’t need the £70 million+ they will be entitled to claim under the […]

Combat Coronavirus by tackling inequality

Posted on: 4th March 2020

If the Government really “will stop at nothing” to combat Coronavirus then it must immediately grant low paid workers the sickness protection rights they’ve steadfastly denied them. The Conservatives’ cheerleaders in the right-wing press say Ministers have promised to “stop at nothing” to avert a COVID-19 epidemic. But those same Ministers seem to be unaware […]

Politics has quickly returned to routine normality…

Posted on: 23rd January 2020

Conservative MPs again voting to reject sanctuary for child refugees. This is as unsurprising as it is disappointing. They of course routinely attempt to defend themselves by quoting the numbers of children who’ve successfully been resettled here in recent years. But this is in spite of not because of Conservative Government policy. As a Save […]

Conservatives’ NHS record on “Black Alert”

Posted on: 11th January 2020

The on-going crisis at our Treliske’s Emergency Department – A&E – exposes the results of four years of Conservative underfunding and mismanagement of our NHS. Again it’s twice been on Black Alert (or Opal level 4) this week alone. I don’t need to explain to people who live at the far end of a long […]

Caribbean holiday

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, […]

A “Golden Age”?!

Posted on: 19th December 2019

This Government wants to pass legislation to make sure it does what it says it will do. Evidently it doesn’t have much confidence in its own trustworthiness… But that’s what this Government has promised; to pass legislation to make sure it delivers money which it promised the NHS. Less than the NHS needs, but nevertheless […]

Tribalism won’t save our NHS from the Conservatives

Posted on: 25th October 2019

Strewth! Here we go again… Liberal Democrats DO NOT support the privatisation of the NHS and will fight Tory attempts to put profit before patient care. I spent long enough fighting a Labour Government which rolled out the red carpet for the private sector in the NHS and fighting the Tories during those awful Coalition […]

We’ll take the NHS money – though we suspect it’s just more counterfeit pre-election promises

Posted on: 30th September 2019

Local Candidate and NHS campaigner Andrew George said he’d be pleased to accept the money the Conservatives have said is on offer for the local NHS, and that he’ll make sure its delivered effectively, so long as the Conservatives show where the money is coming from before they lose office. Mr George said, “If the […]
