Conservatives to reinforce second home tax loop-hole, not remove it

Posted on: 25th March 2021

Andrew George was first to expose the multi-million second home tax loophole introduced by the Conservatives a decade ago. He says the apparent “crack-down” on it announced this week “is just pre-election confetti and will, if anything, merely reinforce the problem of a system rigged in favour of property investors and second homers to the […]

Over £100 million in Covid aid given to second homers – Chancellor should claw it back.

Posted on: 26th February 2021

Revealed – over £100m of Cornwall’s covid aid claimed by second home owners. It should instead be used for locals in housing need. I’ve also asked one Conservative MP second homer to back my call.

Today’s hastily cobbled together face-saving NHS cash initiative by the PM is nothing like enough. It won’t even come close to resolving the serious crisis her Government has placed our NHS in. Welcome as it is, the extra funding is a more of a sticking plaster for the tattered reputation of the Conservative Party than […]

The Government not our hospital staff should be in ‘special measures’

Posted on: 6th April 2018

    Once again, Government hospital inspectors criticise hard-working NHS staff for… the failures of Government. Today CQC Hospital inspectors have again slated Cornwall’s main Hospital. But most of it comes down to underfunding and under staffing. Culture of bullying A quote from the husband of one of the hospital’s registered nurses on the Cornwall […]
