Learning to live with… a Conman

Posted on: 21st February 2022

Learning to live with… Today’s Covid announcement was no more led by science than it was by politics. It was another tactic in “Operation Save Big Dog”. Designed to save the skin of the PM. A man not exactly renowned for his honesty and integrity. Doesn’t matter to him that he’s throwing the vulnerable, the […]

Ignore Ministers. Follow the science for Covid security.

Posted on: 28th January 2022

We can combat Covid and support our economy if we support each other. Communities across Cornwall and Scilly can demonstrate we’re amongst the most community-spirited places in the country. Conservative Ministers have chosen to ignore almost all authoritative science and have lifted sensible Covid controls. In contrast we can all show that here in our […]

Government must “Fix social care” before it can talk of tax raise

Posted on: 28th January 2022

Before the Government hits struggling workers a £12bn tax bill, they first need to demonstrate they’ve “fixed social care”. At the very time the Government plans its National Insurance tax hike Cornwall’s Conservative Council has declared the social care is more unfixed than it’s ever been! At the last election the Conservatives promised that above […]

They promised to “Fix Social Care” – Instead they’ve Failed it

Posted on: 21st January 2022

At the last election the Conservatives promised that above all they would “fix social care”. This week’s news confirms they’ve achieved the opposite. If they want to slash care provided to the sickest and vulnerable they should go and explain that to the patients and their families themselves, and not expect the heroes working on […]

Science-led (not PR-led) Covid strategy please

Posted on: 17th December 2021

Top scientists offered an unvarnished and sobering appraisal of the current state of the Covid pandemic. Government ministers should take note. “…There is no evidence that Omicron is less severe than Delta”!Prof Christina Pagel commenting on Imperial research published 17.12.21. The brilliant scientists of IndieSAGE chart the state of the pandemic (at their last weekly […]

North Shropshire – Electors finally rumble Johnson

Posted on: 17th December 2021

The stunning N Shropshire byelection victory brings with it a message of hope. Hope for our NHS, which deserves real support rather than photo-calls and empty promises. Hope for those desperate for a secure home. Hope for Covid policy led by science rather than public relations. And hope for our children’s future as the climate […]

G7 and the Covid tsunami – Just a coincidence?

Posted on: 20th June 2021

The correlation between G7 and the tsunami of covid case-load in St Ives/Carbis Bay (and Falmouth) is undeniable. It ought to drive public bodies to at the very least maintain an open mind about the connection between the two. But Cornwall’s Council’s Conservative Health Chief has already declared that “G7 is not the cause of […]

Destructive NHS Act to be scrapped – “I told you so”

Posted on: 11th February 2021

The NHS “reforms” introduced a decade ago will apparently be reversed. I spent years fighting the Conservatives and even folk in my own Party who became seduced into accepting these evidently ridiculous and destructive “reforms”. Am I now entitled to say “I told you so”? This is what I said 9 years ago https://www.andrewgeorge.org.uk/no-health-bill-is-better-than-a-bad-one/ – one of […]

Brexit – a deliberate ploy to avert attention from a climate of chaos?

Posted on: 9th May 2019

The 3 pro-Brexit Parties – Conservatives, Labour and UKIP – got their comeuppance from voters in last week’s local elections. Anti-Brexit Liberal Democrats did remarkably well, even in Leave voting areas. And anti-Brexit bed-fellows the Green Party also did very well. PM Theresa May concluded that voters were telling her to “just get on with […]

Edward Hain – we need a hospital, not just a day centre!

Posted on: 1st April 2019

“Using Edward Hain Hospital as a day centre is just an attempt to save the embarrassment of the Conservative Government and local MPs. We want our Hospital back. With desperately needed inpatient beds and vital medical services.” Former MP and health campaigner Andrew George was commenting on news that the Edward Hain Pilot Project will […]
