People of Cornwall, take heed!
So it came to pass that Cornwall Council cabinet voted to hand all Cornwall's services to a giant big company, possibly BT and further did the councillors vote against the plans. And yay did Mr Kevin Lavery and cohorts stick one big middle finger up at the councillors and plough on regardless with these plans.
That's right folks Kremlin Kernow are back with a bang this time by trying to pull the kinds of tricks hard right Tory authorities have done in parts they control such as Barnett. Except in this case they don't have permission. Let's look at the facts.
Cornwall Council is roughly made up as follows.
Lib Dems 31%
MK - 5%
Barnet Conservatives have 39councils with 61% of the council, meaning that you should avoid Barnett any time soon because at least 61% of the population have lost their marbles.
About 40% of people in Cornwall support the Tories and their portfolio of unpleasantness, 60% don't. I bet 30% of those Tories are "One Nation Tories" ( I know quite a few) who would really like people to pull their socks up and work hard for their community without necessarily flogging services off to companies that have poor customer service, they quite often believe in old fashioned ideas such as democracy. 10% of their supporters, like any political party, will be as thick as pig dung and unable to string a sentence together without grunting and, the kind of people that vote for a party just because their dad did. Politicians! Don't deny this, you have met them.
But what's this? Cornwall council also voted on this issue and a majority Councillors voted against. Sadly thanks to Mesrs Brown and Blair local government had a whole new system foisted upon it and a select Junta of bug eyed lunatics now control everything regardless of democracy or conscience. In summary then. Barnett = mad policies but democratically chosen, Cornwall = Mad policies with no permission what so ever.
If you think this is the biggest load of crap since "don't scare the hare" then I suggest that you all sign this lovely petition which will force the Council to debate this. Maybe they will then get the message that acting like a 1970's Chilean Generalissimo isn't acceptable.
