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 […]

Perhaps we Poldarks can finally defeat the Warleggans?

Posted on: 15th August 2019

Does art imitate life? Well all is now set for the good Poldarks to challenge the evil Warleggans. For the Poldarks to advance the politics of decency, compassion, equality and to improve opportunities and life chances for the many by challenging the Warleggans’ protection of the privileges of the wealthy few. Draw your own parallels. […]

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 […]

He’s campaigning. Not governing. “No ifs. No buts”!

Posted on: 25th July 2019

The new PM, Johnson, isn’t governing. He’s campaigning for a General Election. “No ifs. No buts”. He can’t deliver a new Brexit deal. Parliament will avert his no deal plans. So he’s deployed top marketing strategists to test which form of words works best. He’s not interested in the substance of policy but how he […]

“Fake news” is Johnson’s route to No. 10

Posted on: 18th July 2019

Our next PM continues to fib his way to Downing Street… Mr Johnson has made a trade in making up stories about straight bananas and fictitious regulations he wants people to rail against. Last night he pleased Tory supporters by waving a kipper on stage, asking “Why does a kipper from the Isle of Man […]

Ms Widdecombe came to west Cornwall this week

Posted on: 4th July 2019

Ms Widdecombe came to west Cornwall this week, presumably to update us on how her scientific project to “cure” homosexuality is going. I may have missed it. Though I’m sure it’ll be reported elsewhere in this newspaper. Meanwhile the rest of us are considering whether her homophobia could be cured by science… Three years ago […]

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 […]
