While many people as I am sure you'll know have questioned this lack of a fully working site you have actually communicated here the reason, so there you go, why not post this clarifying statement up on the website as it is good to publicise such a situation, it may even help win some much needed support!Stephen Richardson wrote:.
There is a small team of people working on the website but we do not have the money to pay someone, like the Westminster parties do, and the volunteers have to work extremely hard first to learn the skills that they need before they can go on to apply them in constructing a workable website.
It has to be one of the weak points about MK in my book.This is the challenge that faces MK - to communicate our message in a way that is more releveant to the spectrum of issues in people's minds when they vote.
The details are lacking I can't see how you would make it better, but what would you do? what is that plan? What is so wrong with the economic situation now? Again this is not easily available information is it?Just as important (and probably of more relevance to voters) is whether an Assembly would be a social and economic benefit for the people of Cornwall.
Naturally, I believe it would. I believe that the Westminster parties are more interested in the well-being of themselves (personally), London, and the South East of England, than they are in any part of the UK. I also believe that people who live and work in Cornwall are best placed to address the particular needs that Cornwall has and that a 'one size fits all' Westminster policy is not necessarily the best thing for Cornwall.
For me Cornwall is pretty good at the moment there is a lot happening and fast we don't have that many issues apart from the rubbish talk about housing problems and lack of jobs. The housing thing has aways and will always be a political issue but however you view it. They still keep building houses while many complain about the lack, they still keep selling houses while people complain at the cost. The jobs thing is odd and people sitting on benefit due to fact they would lose out if they went to work is a big problem, but how do the many and I welcome them Polish people find the work while many locals are happy to sit and complain about the lack of work?
Despite what anyone believes about me I'll say this if the people want the Cornish Nation idea great, but don't force it on people, peoples rights should be respected and we didn't hear anything from MK regarding the discussing way a school was slander on this website, does it matter to you Stephen Richardson? I fear this kind of mindset to be the "thorn in your Side" although this was at an extreme end of things it highlights a problem of why many people don't trust MK/Cornish movement.
