Prepare yourselves. It seems our Government is bound to drag us into a “No deal” Brexit. I rejected Brexit in 2016 because I didn’t believe our Country should lose control to those Conservatives who want turn the UK into a backward, narrow-minded, inward looking and intolerant island which reckons that international respect is won through […]

“I disagree with what you say, but defend to death your right to make an ass of yourself” (Oscar Wilde) It’s a fundamental British value to protect free speech. Which I’m afraid means we’re also obliged to even defend the right of privileged politicians who irresponsibly stoke prejudice by bullying the less privileged who are […]

Last weekend I joined local police on patrol and performed my regular stint supporting the Penzance Street Food Project (SFP). I came away very encouraged.

Taking back control of “our fish”?

Posted on: 2nd April 2018

Fishermen risk their lives to put food on our tables. So they don’t deserve to be deliberately misled, as they have been. I’ve always campaigned for an HONEST and DELIVERABLE policy for our fishermen; and have consistently opposed the irresponsible attempts of Conservatives and others to visit a cruel hoax on British fishermen. Like others […]

Let’s have a public debate on Brexit

Posted on: 21st February 2018

Former MP Andrew George says local people deserve a say on the kind of Brexit being negotiated by the Government. Following the revelation of a secret letter to the Prime Minister signed by one local MP, and which calls for the hardest of hard Brexit’s, Mr George says these matters should be put in the […]
