And people wondered why I didn't initially bother to answer you.factotum wrote:I am like visitor puzzled, and I'm hardly a newcomer to the scene. We supposedly live in a democracy (don't all laugh at once!) which means that if things are not to our liking in some fundamental way, we ought to be able to vote for someone to put things right. And given enough time, a party or faction should emerge to do just that. Now the idea that Cornwall is not England has been being propagated for many decades now, along with the idea that Cornwall gets a raw deal from London/SW Region/Devonwall etc. All of this was clearly set out, just to give one example, in Cornwall at the Crossroads, and how long ago was that? We have the 10% petition, we have the Mori majority, we have Cornish flags flying all over the place, and yet none of this is reflected politically. Did you pin your hopes on the local LibDems? They were shafted by their own party. If they had any trace of honour they'd have resigned the whip at that point and formed a new pro-Cornish party, or defected to MK. But no, they shafted you all instead. So what happens now? By rights MK should pick up the votes, but somehow MK has failed to connect with the public. Not just MK but the wider concept of Cornwall as a nation with the right and indeed the need to be able to do its own thing in its own way. So why the disconnect and how to remedy it.
Everything you wrote in that post you have already said in this discussion. You are just repeating yourself. Either you haven't read what anyone wrote, you've forgotten what people wrote or you're being intentionally obtuse. I'm not going to repeat myself, you can read it all again above. If you disagree with what I said that's up to you but do not go claiming that nobody is answering your questions.
