Passing the exploding blame parcel

Posted on: 11th October 2019

Who will blink first in the UK/EU game of blame-avoidance? The Conservative Government or the EU? The Johnson/Cummings Government maintains its artful bluster. But their bluff has been called. Their empty promises exposed. I doubt the EU will grant Johnson the prize he craves – freedom to blame everyone but himself. So, the EU is […]

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 […]

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 […]

Brexit: What Next?

Respect and moderate language at our Brexit debate

Local Parliamentary candidate and campaigner, Andrew George, has insisted that all who attend the next in his popular series of public events on Brexit must offer mutual respect and to moderate their language.

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 […]

“Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!”

Posted on: 25th September 2019

PM Johnson is imprisoned in his own web of deceit. His Government dragged unwillingly back to Parliament today to face uncomfortable scrutiny. Guilty of misleading the Queen, of acting unlawfully, of lying to Parliament and frustrating parliamentary democracy. PM Johnson, his Commons’ Leader, Mr Rees-Mogg, and Attorney General, Mr Cox, should “consider their positions” and […]

Value “wellbeing” – not wealth

Posted on: 18th September 2019

I strongly welcome Jo Swinson’s promise to put “Wellbeing” budgets at the heart of the annual Budget. We’re too obsessed with GDP and wealth. I’ve long supported this policy. We should shout about it. Of course the Government should regularly assess how its actions affect happiness. Measuring just monetary value misses the point of life. […]

The people must have the final say

Posted on: 16th September 2019

The Liberal Democrats’ admirably strong anti Brexit line 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. Jo Swinson is doing a great job. But I’m not convinced the Leader’s office has thought […]

Brexit – What Next?

Posted on: 12th September 2019

I’ve held a series of well-attended public meetings to help inform local people on Brexit. The next is on 27th September at Penwith College. There’ll be a cross-party panel and representatives from law, commerce and transport. (Of course I’ve always invited the local Conservative MP to join the debate, but he’s always refused. Just as […]
