Working together – best way to combat pandemic

Posted on: 31st October 2020

It’s time for all parties to come together for the good of the country. I’ve called for this before. But it bears repeating again now. Our country needs a cross-Party, cross-Parliament but most importantly genuinely science-led coalition to take over and get on top of the pandemic. All the signs are that it’s taking another […]

We can be better than this – and rise above Scrooge-like excuses for child poverty

Posted on: 28th October 2020

Warm congratulations and thanks to many local businesses and individuals who’ve stepped up and responded with kindness after Parliament voted down Marcus Rashford’s campaign to fight child hunger amongst the poorest families. The vote itself was shocking enough. But the litany of attempted excuses expose the Conservative MPs who voted against children in need. Let’s […]

Conservative MP should have an honest debate about breaking treaty obligations

Posted on: 19th October 2020

It’s time the local Conservative MP apologised and came out of his bunker to face an open public debate of his conduct and voting record. I’ve been accused by one of Conservative MP’s local Conservative Party campaign managers of likening his Conservative Government with Nazi Germany. The confected outrage was no doubt dreamt up to […]

Cornwall – a Tory developers’ paradise – “stop these disastrous plans!”

Posted on: 4th October 2020

The Conservatives see Cornwall as a developers’ paradise. Now they want to set that policy in concrete. And with a large Parliamentary majority and a pliant bunch of obedient MPs representing Cornwall there’s little to stop them… Their proposed changes to the planning system will put greed before need, accelerate volume house building and drive […]

Large Parliamentary majority will deliver “oven-ready” deceit

Posted on: 16th September 2020

The Dominic Cummings’ Government is correct. The introduction of The Internal Market Bill this week is not unique and has precedent. For example there’s The Enabling Act forced through by Hitler in 1933 . It ultimately paved the way for totalitarian rule in Germany and all that the world witnessed thereafter. And Putin has also […]

Our country back-peddles again – This week’s blog

Posted on: 16th September 2020

The UK covid-19 battle is characterised by NHS and public sector Lions led by Ministerial Donkeys.Government Ministers have so far protected themselves from deserved criticism with the comfort blanket of supporters who jump on critics for being “unpatriotic” at a time when “we should all stick-together”. This has permitted Ministers to maintain consistency in their […]

Our teachers and pupils deserve support – not ill-judged opinion

Posted on: 9th September 2020

It is dangerous if MPs who appear to have a low comprehension of risk are permitted to opine on the subject of the safety of our schools returning. Some MPs need tutorials – especially on science and evidence based policy making – before being let loose on the public. Former MP Andrew George has written […]

We must fight back.” Andrew George successfully led the parliamentary campaign against the closure of Edward Hain Hospital in 1997. He is prepared to help lead the fight back against the loss of the Hospital now. A decision to make permanent the ‘temporary’ […]
