Goonhilly

Mr Johnson needs to be reminded

Posted on: 27th November 2019

We secured essential investment in space science at Goonhilly IN SPITE the Conservatives (who tried to block it) not because of them. Former west Cornwall Liberal Democrat MP, Andrew George, said it was rich of Mr Johnson to go to Goonhilly for a photo op today, especially since his party ministers had sought to frustrate […]

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 […]

Andrew George at Penzance Street Food Project

Weekly News Column

Posted on: 10th October 2019

Thank you to the media for highlighting of the daily struggle of local people. It helps to get an important message across. The BBC reports from Penzance this week exposes the plight of hard-working local families who endure the very low wage and very high house and living cost local economy. Promises of tax and […]

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 […]

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 […]

It seems all Parties want a General Election

Posted on: 12th September 2019

It seems all Parties want a General Election. And so they should. We have a Government that can’t govern. Critically important matters can’t be resolved. But equally we shouldn’t leave the power to set the date for the election with a pathological liar like the present PM; a man who cannot be trusted and could […]

Tories to introduce Parliamentary “Martial Law”

Posted on: 28th August 2019

The real PM, Dominic Cummings and his poodle – Mr B Johnson – plan to commit the Parliamentary equivalent of “martial law”. Suspending Parliament is a declaration of war on our democracy. They’re running away from being answerable. It is a cowardly abuse of power. There appear to be no depths of dishonesty, arrogance and […]

Conservatives saw fishing as “expendable” in 1972. They still do.

Posted on: 23rd August 2019

The Conservatives secretly described the fishing industry as “expendable” in 1972, when negotiating access to the European Union. Many believe they still take the fishing industry for granted. Liberal Democrat MEPs Caroline Voaden (SW) and Cornish woman Lucy Nethsingha (MEP for East of England) accompanied, local Parliamentary candidate and former MP, Andrew George, on a […]

Rev Julyan Drew

Posted on: 15th August 2019

I recently attended the funeral of a wonderful man who was taken before his time. Universally loved, enormously admired. He was a modern day and real life Poldark of our time. A man who stood up for the wider community and advocated for the interests of the meek. He set a standard we ought all […]
