CORNISH ASSEMBLY aka Cornwall Council (temp) 2013-17 Record

Post by TeamKernow » Tue May 07, 2013 1:22 pm

'There is something inevitable about the journey to a Cornish Assembly'
David Whalley, Leader, Cornwall Council, December 2007.

In recent years some progress has been made (more to be done) in getting people who don't live in Cornwall
removed from Cornwall's electoral rolls:
: :idea: C24 'Backstory' :idea:

However, in the four years since the last round of Cornish elections in 2009 while dominated by Conservative 'growth is good' hypnotised obsessives, Cornwall Council has been taking over-development orders from corporate and political interests over in England as if hellbent on wiping the Cornish out of existence - a politically motivated externally driven population gerrymander that puts the :idea: population gerrymandering efforts of Lady Porter in Westminster :idea: in the shade.

It will be interesting to see how the various micro and macro political factors including the reduction in non-resident voters/orchestrated population influx gerrymandering/general UK political dynamics play out in Cornwall's own 2013 election results.

Since the elections in 2009, through other party defections and byelection wins,
Cornwall's National Political Party - :idea: Mebyon Kernow :idea: - increased its presence within Cornwall Council.
Might that welcome trend continue...

The results:

Conservative: - 19
Liberal Democrat: - 2
Independent: + 3
Mebyon Kernow: + 1
Labour: + 6

Number of elected political groups 2009: 4
Number of elected political groups 2013: 9

Key questions (among many others!):
1.Will increased diversity lead to less dictatorial and greater consensual, collective and wiser decision taking?
2.Will increased diversity lead to greater elected council autonomy and less pandering to over-development obsessed CC employee executives and resistance in Cornwall's best interests to external direction and diktat emanating from over in England?
3.Will Cornwall Council arrest the out of control concreting of Cornwall?
4.Will Cornwall Council begin to put the interests of Cornwall's full time residents FIRST for a change?
5.Will Cornwall Council adopt genuine policies for caring for Cornwall's environment and stop wiping them out many times over with the building of huge numbers of unnecessary houses?
More?

May 7th 2013 ......

TASK 1 - Determining the composition of the Cabinet and whether Cornwall Council will act as a 'rainbow coalition' collective consensual body or a contrived theatrical party political grandstanding time wasting humdrum orthodox confrontational bipolar oppositional body where 'mainstream' political parties with headquarters over in England try to dominate, steer and hijack Cornish affairs to suit their UK wide agendas...

And the result is: TBA

TASK 2. Electing a fixed 'Leader', rotating 'Leader' or will Cornwall Council choose to function as a collective with collective responsibility for decisions made? Or some even more imaginative possibility...

And the result is: TBA

So the newly elected "Directors"/AKA Councillors, of the Corporation trading for profit know as Cornwall Council are trying to figure out whether to work in the best interests of the people or to squabble amongst each other. Meanwhile, the rabble of the uninformed ignorant electorate looks meekly on.

Jesus wept ! :shock:

In terms of numbers a Rainbow Coalition is not needed because the Liberals and the Independents have a majority. No other party is needed. However, there are some 'Indepedents' who really have sympathy for a range of parties.

You could say the same about the Conservatives, many Independents have Conservative or Lib Dem tendencies.
Only thing many don't like about the Lib Dems is they hoisted this daft unitary council upon us when the majority wanted to stick with the county council.
Now we have to put up with inflated car parking charges and all the places locals could go and park have either been double yellow lined or parking charges apply!

You, and everyone else who whines and reviles deserve the exact Government you get Trev.

If you are going to partake in a game ladies and gentleman, surely the main prerequisite would be to learn the f*ckin rules !!! :oops:

There was never a vote on whether people wanted the unitary so we do not know for sure what the 'majority' would have wanted. If we had stuck with the same system Cornwall would be bankrupt by now. Seven lots of expensive senior management, districts and the county arguing amongst themselves, even bigger cuts.
