Standing for MK in St Austell and Newquay

It has been announced today that I will be the candidate for Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall in the constituency of St Austell and Newquay at this year’s General Election.

It is my intention to keep local people informed about the campaign via this blog and a wide range of other media outlets.

In the meantime, my opening statement in the press release to announce my candidacy was as follows:

“Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall is different to the establishment London-based political parties.

“We are based here in Cornwall, we have no vested interests and are not funded by big business. We also have no political masters in London to please and we will always fight for what is best for the people of Cornwall.

“We are a progressive party, campaigning for the devolution of real political powers to Cornwall so that more of the decisions that matter are made here – not by disinterested civil servants or Ministers in London.

“It is my hope that local residents will wish to cast a positive vote and demand a better deal for Cornwall by supporting Mebyon Kernow.

“I also hope that those people who feel let down by the same old politics coming out of Westminster will vote for Mebyon Kernow to show ‘politics as usual’ is no longer acceptable.”
