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

Posted on: 29th July 2019

  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 […]

He’s campaigning. Not governing. “No ifs. No buts”!

Posted on: 25th July 2019

The new PM, Johnson, isn’t governing. He’s campaigning for a General Election. “No ifs. No buts”. He can’t deliver a new Brexit deal. Parliament will avert his no deal plans. So he’s deployed top marketing strategists to test which form of words works best. He’s not interested in the substance of policy but how he […]

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 […]

Strong Anti-Brexit message from Liberal Democrat success

Posted on: 27th May 2019

The Euro results weren’t just a bloody nose for the Conservative Government. It was a also a thumbs-down for Brexit. Bad news for Brexit Underlying the predictable media hype for the Brexit Party lurks an inconvenient fact… …that support for Brexit has fallen. The BBC/Press Association produced this chart. Correctly not allocating votes for Labour […]

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. […]

Good leaders stand up against those who seek to divide us

Posted on: 25th April 2019

Just a month ago representatives of the whole Cornish community – Christians, Jews, Agnostics, Humanists and others – stood with our Islamic brothers and sisters in peace and solidarity against intolerance and hate. This was following the shocking murder of hundreds of worshipping muslims in New Zealand by a right-wing extremist. And so it is […]

Not such a Happy Mothers’ Day – as Child Poverty increases again

Posted on: 31st March 2019

The Conservatives have pushed more children into poverty. Conservative Government tax credit cuts and the switch to Universal Credit has contributed to increased child poverty. 4.1 million children are now in poverty – that’s 30% of children now below the poverty line. Over 70% of children in poverty are in working households. So it’s not […]

Conservative MPs should apologise to Cornish Council Tax payers

Posted on: 11th February 2019

Cornwall’s Conservative MPs should apologise to Council Tax Payers for consistently voting to cut Council funding. 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 […]

Conservative MP will apologise for voting to increase poverty?

Posted on: 31st January 2019

Credit to Conservative MP Heidi Allen. She appears to speak out against her own Government’s policies which have done so much to create a big rise in poverty and homelessness.   Conservative MPs (including all our local MPs) have consistently voted to: cut working tax credit, slash support for the sick and disabled, reduced housing […]
