MK members thank Dick for his 20 years
At Saturday's MK Conference, party members paid tribute to Cllr Dick Cole for serving twenty years as the leader of the Party for Cornwall.

The kind words were led by Cllr Michael Bunney who, in addressing the Conference, said:

“Dick is a rock for Cornwall, speaking up proudly, calmly and with passion and reason at all times. Dick is the most trustworthy politician I have worked with and such a contrast to the manipulative politicians we see at Westminster. Dick is humble and steadfast, a figurehead for Cornwall and an honourable and principled man.

“Dick combines his role as an outstanding councillor for his home parish of St Enoder with a wider role as the spokesman for the Clay Country and standard bearer for Cornwall.

“He is absolutely tenacious, campaigning with vision and solid evidence to protect the Cornwall he loves so. Dick is at the forefront of our movement that is working to ensure Cornwall's role as a nation within the UK and to deliver meaningful devolution. The whole of MK and the wider Cornish movement owes much to Dick and we would like to say a collective thank you to him, for always being there for us and campaigning for his beloved Cornwall.”

There was a heartfelt standing ovation and Cllr Cole was presented with a cake (baked by MK member Julie Fox) to mark the occasion.
