Unitary get government go-ahead

The official government announcement has been made. In a written ministerial statement, John Healey MP has confirmed that Cornwall County Council’s bid for unitary status will proceed and that the first set of elections will take place in 2009.

Though this is not a surprise, the announcement devalues our democratic system because of the way that it has ignored the views of the majority of the people of Cornwall.

Once again the Cornish voters are ignored by central Government.
Despite being overwhelmingly rejected by the people of Cornwall, this has been pushed through.
Is this democracy?
