I find it very hard to take the Fake News and political spin being put out by some of the Westminster parties standing candidates in the Local Elections on May 4th
The blurb put out by UKIP states that at the last Local Elections they gained six seats on Cornwall council. This is, of course, perfectly true, but what they don’t say is that during the next couple of years five out of the six resigned.
This on its own would be bad enough, but figures obtained from the Nation Audit Office and the Electoral Commission indicate that the by-elections resulting from these UKIP resignations cost Cornwall Council £103, 505 that they, (and we), could ill afford.

Similarly, the Liberal Democrats are heading their leaflets “The voice of Cornwall”. This is the political party that did not vote against the Eco-town, despite claiming to be backing public opinion that it should be rejected. Their excuse was that their “hands were tied” by Government legislation. It is obvious that their tongues were not tied because of the trail of saliva stretching all the way to Westminster where Liberal Democrat MPs could say things if they wished. Or perhaps it is because they are not really the voice of Cornwall, just a bunch of has-beens who can’t think what to say.
