Crisis shows the true value of key workers and the strength of our communities

Posted on: 29th April 2020

Tomorrow evening we stand out again to applaud our frontline workers. Those people who literally put their lives on the line to save the lives of others and to keep us all going – not just NHS professionals, but care workers, refuse collectors, grocery retail workers, transport workers, delivery services and many, many more. It’s […]

Government’s daily PR briefing exposes its failure – (virtual) Parliament must be recalled

Posted on: 16th April 2020

The Government has been floundering. It’s response to this devastating pandemic has been poor. So for weeks I’ve been urging my former colleagues in our “olde worlde” Parliament to adopt modern technology to get back to work in a virtual Parliament. The UK Government has been slow and indecisive. Way behind the curve with testing, […]

£millions of Pandemic aid handouts for second homers while low incomers get none

Posted on: 16th March 2020

Fighting for justice for the low paid and self employed, many of whom face severe hardship from the Government’s emergency C-19 measures. Meanwhile the Government gives generous handouts to second home owners. The grants now being offered to Cornwall’s second homers who don’t need the £70 million+ they will be entitled to claim under the […]

Combat Coronavirus by tackling inequality

Posted on: 4th March 2020

If the Government really “will stop at nothing” to combat Coronavirus then it must immediately grant low paid workers the sickness protection rights they’ve steadfastly denied them. The Conservatives’ cheerleaders in the right-wing press say Ministers have promised to “stop at nothing” to avert a COVID-19 epidemic. But those same Ministers seem to be unaware […]

Conservatives turn back on child refugees, again.

Posted on: 11th January 2020

It’s disappointing but not surprising. Conservative MPs who were so keen to declare support for the Save the Children #StandForChildren Christmas campaign just a few weeks ago have again voted to refuse child refugees sanctuary in the UK. Last week MPs, including local the Conservative, who made much of their declaratory support for Save the Children and […]

2020 – Offering the benefit of doubt…

Posted on: 30th December 2019

Let’s offer them the benefit of doubt in 2020⁄ If what’s promised is delivered, 2020 ought to be a year to look forward to… The Prime Minister promises to restore our NHS, boost our economy, resolve the social care crisis, leap towards zero carbon Britain, slash poverty and to invest in education, policing, vital infrastructure, […]

A “Golden Age”?!

Posted on: 19th December 2019

This Government wants to pass legislation to make sure it does what it says it will do. Evidently it doesn’t have much confidence in its own trustworthiness… But that’s what this Government has promised; to pass legislation to make sure it delivers money which it promised the NHS. Less than the NHS needs, but nevertheless […]

Unbowed, resilient – post election statement

Posted on: 14th December 2019

Once again the Conservative is swept in on a national tidal wave, while we are swept aside! Nonetheless, congratulations to Mr Thomas on his victory. A positive campaign – to build a brighter future We fought a positive campaign – for our children’s future. For an outward-looking, forward-looking and compassionate country. To heal the divisions, to bring […]

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 […]

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 […]
