The “Devonwall” fight is on again
Media reports are stating that the Democratic Unionist Party may drop its opposition to the parliamentary boundary review, after massive changes to the nature of proposed seats in Northern Ireland.

If the changes are voted through, it would mean the imposition of an unpopular cross-Tamar Devonwall seat.

Party leader Cllr Dick Cole said: “The news is very worrying and frankly unbelievable.  In this process, Cornwall is being ignored and yet the Conservatives junior partners in government may achieve an outcome which suits them.

“We can have no trust in the whole process and it is hardly surprising that a large number of people are already condemning the process in Northern Ireland as gerrymandering.

“And it shows we must reinvigorate the campaign against Devonwall.”
