Unacceptable over-development of Cornwall

Posted on: 18th July 2019

I support those protesting against the unacceptable over-development of Cornwall. Cornwall Council tried to persuade the Conservative Government that we should have a lower level of development. After all Cornwall has been one of the fastest growing places in the country since the 60’s. But the Conservatives imposed a much higher housing development figure. Even […]

Post Office

Closed post offices

Posted on: 18th July 2019

I see local Conservatives are celebrating that a van will replace some of the many closed post offices for a few hours a week …for the time being! Witnessing Conservatives rushing to communities after Post Offices have closed to sympathise with locals is like seeing vandals returning to the scene of their crime to support […]

NHS

We celebrated the 70th birthday of our NHS a year ago

Posted on: 18th July 2019

We celebrated the 70th birthday of our NHS a year ago. At the time, health campaigners like me also pointed out the NHS was more debt-ridden, under-staffed and crisis-managed than at any time in its history. To deflect criticism the PM, Theresa May, announced £billions more for the service. The media were immediately taken in […]

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 […]

@30 Day Wild

Posted on: 6th June 2019

I’ve started the great Wildlife Trust “@30 Day Wild” challenge – to do something for nature on each day during June. I’d like to say I do this anyway, but perhaps not everyday. I’ll report back on progress later this month, though in the meantime you can follow me on https://www.facebook.com/Andrew.George.Cornwall/

Liberal Democrats

National Opinion Poll

Posted on: 6th June 2019

Meanwhile my Party- The Liberal Democrats – has topped a national opinion poll for the first time in my memory. This came after our success in the recent European election. The world of politics has become so chaotic and rudderless that almost anything could happen. You could contact me if you want to help combat […]

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 […]

Strong Anti-Brexit message from Liberal Democrat success

Posted on: 27th May 2019

The Euro results weren’t just a bloody nose for the Conservative Government. It was a also a thumbs-down for Brexit. Bad news for Brexit Underlying the predictable media hype for the Brexit Party lurks an inconvenient fact… …that support for Brexit has fallen. The BBC/Press Association produced this chart. Correctly not allocating votes for Labour […]
