MK Confused by Prince Charles' Address to Rio Summit
The Truro-Falmouth branch of Mebyon Kernow is confused by recent comments from Prince Charles at the Rio 20 Earth Summit in Mexico.

The Truro-Falmouth branch of Mebyon Kernow is confused by recent comments from Prince Charles at the Rio 20 Earth Summit in Mexico.
In a video address to the Summit, the Duke of Cornwall warned the world about the dangers of destroying the environment saying:
We need to be much more informed about the actual state of the planet … wiping out so much of the world's vital biodiversity and removing our chances of storing carbon naturally …”
Alan January, Chair of MK Truro-Falmouth Branch couldn't believe the comments.
The hypocricy of Prince Charles is unbelievable. He is the man responsible for the development to the East of Truro which will put acres of green farmland under a mass of concrete, drastically reduce the biodiversity of the area, and expand the urban sprawl of Truro even further.”
Conan Jenkin, a Truro City Councillor is appalled by the duplicity of Charles' comments.
“People of all shades of political opinion rallied together to fight the East of Truro development. The Duke’s statement on protecting the environment should be welcomed but the East of Truro development shows that it's one rule for normal people, and another for Prince Charles.”
Mebyon Kernow has been fighting to defend Cornwall’s environment from poor planning decisions, to help build a better strategy for Cornwall, and to stand-up to the large developers.
Rod Toms, Parish Councillor in St Newlyn East commented:
As the CEO of the Duchy Estate Prince Charles should be aware of the unsustainable policies pursued by his ‘development company’ and admit the damage they are about to do to the East of Truro.”
