St Piran's Day Message; Cornwall deserves better!

As Party Leader of Mebyon Kernow, I would like to wish you all a very happy St Piran's Day!

St Piran’s Day is an increasingly important part of our calendar. Each year, more and more people come together in the name of our national saint to celebrate Cornwall’s unique identity.

I believe it is important that we do everything we can to support all aspects of our Cornishness. But this year, it is vital that Cornwall also takes centre-stage in the political choices that we, as local voters, are about to make.

Recent events at Lys Kernow – particularly with regard to the budget debacle – have shown how the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats put petty posturing and short-term political advantage ahead of what is right for Cornwall.

Cornwall deserves better.

On 2nd May, 123 individuals will be elected to the unitary authority to serve our local communities for the next four years. We must make 2013 the year that people ‘Put Cornwall First’ and elect councillors whose first and only loyalty is to Cornwall – not political masters in Westminster.

Anyone wishing to find out more about standing for Mebyon Kernow, or helping out in the elections, can call me on 07791 876607.
