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. […]

The people must have the final say

Posted on: 16th September 2019

The Liberal Democrats’ admirably strong anti Brexit line 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. Jo Swinson is doing a great job. But I’m not convinced the Leader’s office has thought […]

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

National Opinion Poll

Posted on: 6th June 2019

Meanwhile my Party- The Liberal Democrats – has topped a national opinion poll for the first time in my memory. This came after our success in the recent European election. The world of politics has become so chaotic and rudderless that almost anything could happen. You could contact me if you want to help combat […]
