<t><br/> Shows that there's MK potential in that part of the Clay Country<br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> Yes don't know what happened to the clay country up until very recent times.

<r>Maybe Graham. I don't know much about political jargon such as civic nationalism and ethnic nationalism. I've always seen the political Cornish movement as one that needs to be at the forefront of winning recognition for Cornwall as a constituent nation of the UK and equal in status to the others...

<t><br/> Thanks - that gives us a name: Malcolm Brown who compiled the "fact-sheet", the most noticeable feature of which is the repetitious "county", "county", "county" throughout.<br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> I wouldn't make this personal. I agree "Linc" and those behind it should be more aware of the f...

<t>zennorman said<br/> <br/> Lets put this into perspective. MK has done well compared to where it has come from and the number of candidates it was fielding. Just think how much better they could have done with roadside posters and people knocking on doors and engaging with the electorate. <br/> <b...
