News Update

Posted on: 11th October 2018

I see that some Conservative MPs (perhaps found elsewhere on this page) make bold claims they’re fighting for local Post Offices which have closed or are threatened with closure. It’s like an arsonist returning to the scene with a leaky bucket of water, when the house is already well ablaze, but demanding that folk appreciate […]

Of course we must respect the Brexiteers’ referendum victory. Those 17 million of the 66 million people in this country. Apparently “Brexit means Brexit” is as much of an explanation as we deserve. We must ignore the catastrophic impact. Pretend the humiliation of the Prime Minister at last week’s EU summit is merely proof she […]

Spare a thought for the army of uncomplaining, unsung heroes. Those who are required to make sense of the chaos that is our Government’s management of Brexit. The ranks of stoical civil servants and the proprietors and staff of the thousands of businesses who have been working hard to decode the mantra-laden codswallop and cluelessness […]

Prepare yourselves. It seems our Government is bound to drag us into a “No deal” Brexit. I rejected Brexit in 2016 because I didn’t believe our Country should lose control to those Conservatives who want turn the UK into a backward, narrow-minded, inward looking and intolerant island which reckons that international respect is won through […]

Defending to death Bozo’s right to bully

Posted on: 17th August 2018

“I disagree with what you say, but defend to death your right to make an ass of yourself”, said Oscar Wilde. It’s a fundamental British value to protect free speech. Which I’m afraid means we’re also obliged to even defend the right of privileged politicians who irresponsibly stoke prejudice by bullying the less privileged who […]

Last weekend I joined local police on patrol and performed my regular stint supporting the Penzance Street Food Project (SFP). I came away very encouraged. The prospects for Penzance remain positive, providing that those who speak up for the town are likewise positive about these things. However, there are still many who would rather blame […]

Reflection on tragic killing of MP Jo Cox

Posted on: 5th July 2018

It’s right that we annually reflect on the shocking and tragic killing of an exceptional MP Jo Cox by a right-wing extremist two years ago. But I’m going to say what many are thinking yet are afraid to say. Of course these occasions should be moments to bring communities together, break down divisions and stand […]

Conservatives have rigged the voting system. But it can be reformed.

Posted on: 10th May 2018

Good news! If last week’s up country local election results were replicated here in west Cornwall in a General Election the Conservatives could lose at least 2 of their 3 MPs, according to one independent source. The two in every three local electors who didn’t vote Conservative last year may welcome this? However, such a […]

Conservatives more concerned with how they look than in how our NHS is struggling under their mishandled supervision…

Posted on: 24th April 2018

So Jeremy Hunt has written to just fellow Conservative MPs to ask what he should do to make him and his Party look less bad. This after all of those years of distain towards and mismanagement of our NHS. Jeremy Hunt wants to drape himself in an NHS which is a thousand times more popular […]
