“We would like to believe their motives are honourable but the proof of the pudding will be in the eating because we have been let down so many times before."When we had 50,000 signatures on a petition for a democratically elected Cornwall Assembly, they jumped on the bandwagon," he said."But when they gained control of Cornwall Council in 2005 they utterly failed to do anything about it."”

“I am sure the last paragraph was intended to be humorous, as it wouldn't matter how many candidates Mebyon Kernow fielded the result would be the same - loss of all six deposits. They really must have more money than sense!If the Liberal Democrats, and MK for that matter, are frightened of any other political party it is Ukip. The emerging party having gained six seats in the most recent Cornwall Council elections as opposed to MK's four, and we all recall MK, in one form or another, has been around for a very long time without any notion of significant success.The Liberal Democrats may suggest proportional representation, but as in the past it will be kicked into the long grass by the electorate: as happened decisively in respect of their Alternative Vote referendum. The only interest they have in this country is to sell it to the corrupt EU, and that will never happen.Reform the House of Lords? What they mean is stack it full of LibDem and Labour peers to filibuster, as they did recently, any suggestion of removing ourselves from the grasp of the corrupt EU. And, don't forget that household name, Mandelson (aided by his side-kick Kinnock) suggested Politician's should decide our fate in Europe and not the electorate. Apparently, we the electorate plebs, are not sufficiently educated to make the decision for ourselves. Now, that is what I call Labour and LibDem's version of democracy. I think they are in for a sudden awakening!”

“I never trust a Lib Dem promise. As for UKIP, does anyone honestly believe they are serious except for a few right wing Tories and assorted other cranks who probably haven't heard the bad news about the loss of Empire and decline?http://tinyurl.com/kn7bsmp”
