Westminster, the building that houses the political parties that forms the government and the same political parties that have, for decades, overseen Cornwall’s position as one of the poorest areas of the UK and the wider EU.
The video below shows Mebyon Kernow leader Dick Cole in conversation with Ed (Kernow King) Rowe. Both men have deep roots in the China Clay Area and the video was partly filmed at two iconic sites in the area – Indian Queens Pit and Roche. They also viewed the waste incinerator presently being constructed near St Dennis, where they shared concerns about planning in Cornwall – but those plans are made at Westminster.
The BBC and ITV has stated that Mebyon Kernow – the party for Cornwall, would need to stand in one-sixth of the constituencies in “England” to have a Party Election Broadcast. This would have meant a total of 89 constituencies – six in Cornwall and 83 in England
MK has produced its own PEB
Mebyon Kernow Party Election Broadcast
“The PEB sets out some of MK’s key policies including more power for Cornwall, fair funding, investment in Cornwall, local control over planning, and an end to austerity.
The video features Party Leader Cllr Dick Cole, who is standing in St Austell and Newquay at the General Election, along with fellow parliamentary candidates Cllr Loveday Jenkin (Camborne and Redruth), Cllr Andrew Long (South East Cornwall), Cllr Stephen Richardson (Truro and Falmouth) and Cllr Rob Simmons (St Ives).”
Vote for Cornwall, vote for Mebyon Kernow on May 7th to shift the balance of power from the over-centralised Westminster to the streets and communities of Cornwall!
