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 […]

Our Campaign Is Go!

Posted on: 6th November 2019

“For Jo Swinson to say she could do “a better job than” Boris Johnson – or Jeremy Corbyn for that matter – is setting the bar very low indeed. “This election isn’t just about our future in Europe. It’s about the shape of our country for the next generation. “The Conservatives want us to become […]

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 […]

Investment in the NHS

Posted on: 15th August 2019

I’m grateful the local Conservative MP drew attention to my comments about the importance of investment in the NHS in his column last week. I’ll leave you to decide whether he misunderstood or deliberately misrepresented what I said. But I don’t apologise for saying that proper investment in our NHS is a higher priority than […]

Cornwall should welcome NHS announcement – even if it’s from Johnson’s magic money-lending tree!

Posted on: 5th August 2019

Today’s hospital funding announcement confirms imminent General Election The Johnson Government is making an extra £850 million available for future capital spending on NHS hospitals. This includes nearly £100 million for the long awaited and long promised rebuilding of the seriously deficient Princess Alexandra Maternity wing at Treliske, Truro.

We celebrated the 70th birthday of our NHS a year ago

Posted on: 18th July 2019

We celebrated the 70th birthday of our NHS a year ago. At the time, health campaigners like me also pointed out the NHS was more debt-ridden, under-staffed and crisis-managed than at any time in its history. To deflect criticism the PM, Theresa May, announced £billions more for the service. The media were immediately taken in […]

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 […]

Edward Hain – we need a hospital, not just a day centre!

Posted on: 1st April 2019

“Using Edward Hain Hospital as a day centre is just an attempt to save the embarrassment of the Conservative Government and local MPs. We want our Hospital back. With desperately needed inpatient beds and vital medical services.” Former MP and health campaigner Andrew George was commenting on news that the Edward Hain Pilot Project will […]
