It seems that the Conservative speaker was using this platform to promote his Westminster party politics rather than the crucial housing issue.
He was more concerned with saying things like "I think people are getting tired of being told what to do, they have had twelve years of being told what to do."

I hadn't noticed being told what to do more in the last twelve years than i had before - in fact, could it be the other way round?

Oh, the Thatcherites loved to tell us all what to do. Particularly if you were a miner or steel worker, and they had truncheons.

Ever remember that notorious film where the police had charged against striking miners, and the film was reversed to make it look as if the miners were running towards the police?

Or if you were unemployed as i was for many years, like 25% of my town were.
To claim benefit you had to agree to move to any part of the UK for a job, which many did, breaking up families and leaving their now elderly relatives to be cared for at the local tax payer's expense.
I did not agree and said i would work in any part of Scotland, Wales, or Cornwall. Eventually they said that was ok, but i was never offered any job anywhere.

Anyway, the MK reps spoke well and sincerely, but i cannot understand why nobody from the FibDems turned up to speak, do they really have such a large "comfort zone" in Kernow that they don't have to bother?

Thanks to the pipers for their effort, but i don't blame them for wearing dark glasses. Wink

We got there about 2:15ish the march was given as starting at 2:30, walked round the corner to the square and expected to see a big crowd of people, and there was about fifty at most, Shocked quite a few people we know and the pipers, was a bit worried, but spoke to one of the Stannators who said "its Camborne," in other words, they'll get here dreckley

Sure enough more and more people turned up, then someone else said it was advertised in the West Briton as 3pm start, but a good crowd in the end, at least 400 might have been more, and people from different area's not just Camborne

As the mayor said "its only the begining!

The conservative bloke George, spoke to me, asked what we were doing with the photos, he was alright as a person, not sure what he is doing though in a Tory sence, he is well out of his depth in Camborne.

Afraid that we had to cut the Ukip man out of the video, someone had to go, Frenchie published it for youtube, then realised it was 12 minutes long and you're only allowed ten on youtube. Ukip man reminded me of a double glazing sales man

Julia Goldworthy went to her sisters wedding, (she Tweeted it ) the mayor asked if any one else would like to speak on behalf of the Lib Dems and nothing happpend. No representative present.

 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.
