Keep Cornwall Whole

Mebyon Kernow has been extremely critical of the forthcoming review of parliamentary constituencies which could lead to a “Devon and Cornwall” cross-border seat.

It is fair to say that representations to the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, even from Lib Dem MPs like Dan Rogerson, have been rather casually dismissed.

Last week, I attended a meeting called by Adam Killeya, the Mayor of Saltash. It brought together over twenty people from a range of political viewpoints to consider how we ensure that the integrity of Cornwall is guaranteed. Attendees included two Lib MPs, a Lord and a number of Cornwall Councillors.

I was one of seven people who agreed to meet on Monday 16th August (tomorrow) to develop the campaign and the best way forward.

Time is certainly not on our side. The second reading of the Parliamentary Voting Systems and Constituencies Bill will be on 6th September.

There is already a website, which will be developed as the campaign progresses. See
