Conservative MPs fail to stand up against Devonwall

In the House of Commons today, Cornwall's Conservative MPs voted against a motion from the Scottish National Party to abandon the parliamentary boundary review.

The motion was tabled by Pete Wishart MP. It called for a reduction in the number of unelected peers in the House of Lords and also for plans to reduce the MPs to be abandoned. But it was defeated by 245 votes to 278, with Steve Double, Scott Mann, Sheryll Murray, Sarah Newton and Derek Thomas all voting with the Government.

I find it especially shocking that the MPs failed to even use the opportunity to speak out against the proposed Devonwall seat.

This is a disgrace against the people of Cornwall for whom these numbsculls are supposed to advocate. They should all be sacked and we should have another election. Puppets and whipping boys of the Conservative Government of England, they cannot and should never ever claim to be Cornish in any way or form as they have proved themselves traitors to the people of Cornwall.

to be expected from these individuals, uncaring, unthinkiing, self serving chancers
playing fast and loose with all our futures. They must be disposed of at the next election

How low must Tory MPs sink before the people of Kernow stop voting for them? They are a disgrace to the people they are supposed to represent.
