St Austell and Newquay Campaign Fund
This project is to raise vital funds for Cllr Dick Cole, the leader of Mebyon Kernow - the Party for Cornwall (MK), to contest the St Austell and Newquay seat at the General Election.

Mebyon Kernow is a progressive political party, which is campaigning for a better deal for Cornwall and the devolution of meaningful political powers to a National Asembly of Cornwall. And unlike certain large political parties, MK is not funded by big business or a number of wealthy individuals.

Our Party is also denied fair and equal access to the media at election time. For example, Mebyon Kernow will not be allowed a party election broadcast (PEB) on television, even though we will be standing in all six Cornish seats. We have been told that to get a PEB we would need to stand in a total of one-sixth of the constituencies in "England" - a total of 89 seats.

Mebyon Kernow councillors have condemned the Conservative and Liberal Democrat Coalition for its ongoing austerity programme, which has led to Cornwall Council agreeing cuts of £196 million.

Message from Dick Cole's blog inviting members of the public to the afternoon session:
"I would like to extend an invitation to members of the public to attend the afternoon session, which will start at 2.00. Anyone interested in finding out more about MK would be extremely welcome, and we would be delighted to see you there and to hear your viewpoints.”

Over the last few weeks the Liberal Democrats have started to campaign on the issue of Cornish devolution. Various pleas have gone around to mount a campaign and lately even a survey on people's ideas. My plea here is for them to stop reinventing the wheel and work with the campaign Mebyon Kernow already have.

Would you rather our suggestion that powers are devolved to a Cornish assembly with wide ranging law making powers?
or the various suggestions coming from the Conservatives, Labour and Liberal Democrats for more power to Cornwall Council?
Which body should power be devolved to?

"Mebyon Kernow is calling for a true National Assembly for Cornwall. An assembly which can do away with unelected and politically appointed quangos such as the LEP and tie public spending to public accountability."

Story

The Party for Cornwall
Introduction
Mebyon Kernow is a progressive left-of-centre party in Cornwall. We are striving to build a confident and outward-looking Cornwall that has the power to take decisions, directly affecting the people of Cornwall, locally.

Our policies are founded on three core values:

  • Prosperity for all
  • Social justice
  • Environmental protection
The historic Nation of Cornwall has its own distinct identity, language and heritage. As one of the four nations inhabiting the British mainland, Cornwall has the same right to self-determination as England, Scotland and Wales. Mebyon Kernow is leading the campaign for the creation of a National Assembly for Cornwall, with the necessary powers to unlock Cornwall’s true potential.
