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 […]

This December election isn’t just about our future in Europe

Posted on: 6th November 2019

This December election isn’t just about our future in Europe. It’s about the shape of our country for decades to come. It’s about what kind of society we want to become. I’ll be running a positive campaign to restore decency and honesty to our politics. To build a brighter future. To combat those who want […]

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 […]

Caretaker Government must be Plan A for Opposition Parties

Posted on: 7th October 2019

History will not be kind to the collection of opposition Parties and independent MPs if they allow the Cummings/Johnson Government to continue fibbing their way to 31st October. The parliamentary maths is clear. A majority of MPs want to stop the Conservatives. A vote of no confidence followed by the creation of a caretaker Government […]

PM Johnson, School Strike and Conference

Posted on: 26th September 2019

This column has been submitted to publication in the local newspapers. PM Johnson is imprisoned in his own web of deceit. His Government dragged unwillingly back to Parliament to face uncomfortable scrutiny. Guilty of misleading the Queen, of acting unlawfully, of lying to Parliament. He ought to do the honourable thing. But is bound 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. […]

Brexit – Electors must not be ignored… All have a right to sign-off on the final deal

Posted on: 16th September 2019

The Liberal Democrats’ rational approach to Brexit is already well understood. But claiming we would unilaterally stop Brexit without reference to the people through a referendum IF WE WIN THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTION is unnecessary, wrong and counterproductive. Of course I understand why Jo Swinson feels obliged to overstate her case, because the media would […]

I respect the right of the editor of this paper last week to roundly castigate my Party

Posted on: 15th August 2019

I respect the right of the editor of this paper last week to roundly castigate my Party. And I hope the paper will reassure us it’s non-partisan by offering the same selective criticism of other mainstream Parties. But it should also acknowledge that Parties are damned if they DO work with other Parties and damned […]

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 […]
