Our country back-peddles again – This week’s blog

Posted on: 16th September 2020

The UK covid-19 battle is characterised by NHS and public sector Lions led by Ministerial Donkeys.Government Ministers have so far protected themselves from deserved criticism with the comfort blanket of supporters who jump on critics for being “unpatriotic” at a time when “we should all stick-together”. This has permitted Ministers to maintain consistency in their […]

British Lifeboats upholding British values

Posted on: 16th August 2020

I celebrate the wonderful work of our lifeboat volunteers. It’s inspiring and reassuring. They continue to uphold British values in spite the storms and tempests of politically-inspired news reporting all around them. The coxswain of a lifeboat on the Kent coast said this week – when asked about their saving the lives of desperate people […]

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 […]

The Blues show their colours… (This week’s Blog – 17th Feb)

Posted on: 21st February 2020

Dutifully chanted lies Prime minister Dominic Cummings and his official spokesman Mr B Johnson reshuffled what the media called their “Puppet Cabinet” this week. And it must have been reassuring for Mr Cummings to witness his newbies demonstrate cheerful choral obedience for the TV cameras by dutifully chanting the already debunked lies about the hospitals […]

Cold comfort from Conservatives for child refugees

Posted on: 22nd January 2020

Conservative MPs have yet again today voted to refuse sanctuary for child refugees. This is as unsurprising as it is disappointing. Conservative MPs of course routinely attempt to defend themselves by quoting the numbers of children who’ve successfully been resettled here in recent years (see this tissue of astonishingly selective “evidence” from the local Tory […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. To heal the divisions, to bring […]

It’s Andrew George or the Conservative

Posted on: 22nd November 2019

If Andrew George doesn’t win we’ll have the same obedient Conservative representing us Westminster. Imagine how you’ll feel on 13th December if that happens. If the Conservative wins, it will probably mean five years of Johnson’s Tory party, supported by Mr Farage and the far right. There are fake stories on social media about future […]
