Sorry if you have seen this on C24 but I think it has more importance here. More C24 repeats are on the way as well Confused

Make your Cornish politicians work for you!

They Work For You: http://www.theyworkforyou.com/

Why not sign up to Theyworkforyou.com and get e-mail alerts when something relevant to you happens in Parliament, its a great way to keep track of your MP.

Write To Them: http://www.writetothem.com/

Then with Writetothem.com you can find the address and contact details of Councillors, MP, MEPs, MSPs, or Northern Ireland, Welsh and London AMs for free.

Hear From Your MP: http://www.hearfromyourmp.com/

Then you have the option of signing up to hearfromthem.com and getting non spam two way e-mails from your MP's on what they are doing and why.

Here is a great site from the My society people called Neighbourhood Fix-It: http://www.neighbourhoodfixit.com/

It allows you to report directly to the local council your views, or discuss local problems like graffiti, fly tipping, broken paving slabs, or street lighting.

Check out My Society for more good websites: http://www.mysociety.org/

http://news.mysociety.org/ is also a handy little tool for finding out the contact details for all the local newspapers that are read in your area. Particularly useful for anyone planning a letter writing campaign.

The MySociety.com people are going to produce a website to make it much simpler to make a request under the FOI.

Find out more here: http://www.mysociety.org/projects

It might also be worth recording attempts to get information on the petition of 50,000 and what the gov did with it, who was the consulted etc

Councillor Info: http://www.councillor.info/
This website is a new initiative by the Local Government Association that enables you to contact your local councillor online. If you live in England or Wales just type in your postcode, and if your local authority is participating in the scheme, you will be linked to your councillors details or personal website.

This in:

Hello,

This is a one-off email to let you know about a new website I've built that's a bit like Planning Alerts: http://www.streetwire.org

StreetWire is like PlanningAlerts for every kind of local information. As well as planning applications, it will tell you about licensing applications, crime, events and local news near you.

You can also share news with your neighbours, so if you know some little titbit of local news, or want to tell people about an event, it helps connect you with your local community.

You can sign-up here:

http://www.streetwire.org

I hope you find this useful. It would be really great to hear what you think of it, and what sort of information you'd like to see.

All the best,

(volunteer www.PlanningAlerts.com)

This new site for making freedom of information requests it really quite good.
WhatDoTheyKnow has been built to help you get information out of government departments and agencies.

Just visit pick a department, type a request, and we’ll handle the rest.

Even better, WhatDoTheyKnow is an archive of requests and responses made by other people, so you can search for information other people have found, or even set up email or RSS alerts to get notified when something comes in that you’re interested in.

 Random Information. 
 For many Cornish people and Cornwall, the Duchy, as shown by the Officers of the Duchy of Cornwall in 1855 in its dispute with the Crown over the ownership of the Cornish Foreshore, has quite a different significance, based on the original Acts and Charters of its creation. Cornwall itself in this framework is described, de jure, as a Duchy (as opposed to an ordinary county), and the Duchy estates are distinguished from the Duchy itself, having themselves been annexed and united to "the aforesaid Duchy". The Duke of Cornwall may even be described as Cornwall's head of state.
