Cornish Nation-Cornwall Council Election Results May 2 2013

Post by TeamKernow » Fri May 03, 2013 7:03 am

In recent years some progress has been made 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,
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/population influx gerrymandering/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...

And here are those results:

Summary of changes:

Conservative: - 19
Liberal Democrat: - 2
Independent: + 3
Mebyon Kernow: + 1
Labour: + 6
UKIP: + 6
Labour & Co-operative Party: + 2
Unspecified: + 2
Green Party: + 1

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

Key questions (among many others!):
Will increased diversity lead to less dictatorial and greater consensual, collective and wiser decision taking?
Will increased diversity lead to greater elected council autonomy and less pandering to CC employee executive and external direction?

Today we will know who are Cornwall Council's new Directors. The name "Your Councillor" is pure myth. Whoever they are will have no effect on the continuing bulldozing agenda of the corporation trading for profit on Companies House known as "Cornwall County Council".

Democracy ? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

:idea: HERE :idea: is the search page of Companies House.

No entry found there for 'Cornwall County Council'. Is it visible somewhere else?

Your link has 'timed out' TK, but I wouldn't doubt your word for a second. ;) Here's Dun & Bradstreet, who list over 160 million companies worldwide: http://www.dnb.com/

Go to the search section in the top right hand corner. Tick "Other Business". Change drop down from United States to United Kingdom. Then type Cornwall County Council into the search box.

You might also wish to search other "Companies" such as; The Ministry of Justice, Inland Revenue, Devon & Cornwall Police, whilst not forgetting good old' "UK Parliament PLC".

Enjoy...and remember; No Contract equals No Obligation. :)

As the Liberal Democrats believe in Proportional Representation (as many on the - ahem - 'progressive left' do) then surely on these figures the Tories are entitled to more seats and therefore have a moral right to be the largest party?

Just because a body is registered at Companies' House doesn't in itself mean that its purpose is to trade for profit. Many types of organisations, including some co-ops and charities use a company structure, in many cases it's the most straightforward way to establish limited liability, i.e. the company is a legal entity apart from its members. What you need to do is get a copy of the Memorandum and Articles of the Co. you're interested in, they're available from Co's House, and look under the sections 'Objects' (what their purpose is) and 'Powers' (what they're allowed to do). Also the rules relating to 'Application of Profits/Surplus'. Do they issue share capital, if so to whom, do they pay interest or bonus, do members vote according to their share holding or OMOV? And so on. I would suspect however that a county council would be a 'company limited by guarantee' (i.e. one that doesn't issue shares at all) but it would be interesting to know. It will all be there and publicly available (for a fee?) if you bother to do the research.

How about a coalition of MK and Independents with the Greens?

Perfectly true, I myself have drawn up the rules for one or two 'not for profit' outfits. Are you still blinded by all that 'freeman' hogwash you fell for? As I said, you need to look into the Mem & Arts of the Co. in question to find out what kind of beast they are. If you plan to successfully 'hack the system' you first need to understand how the system is set up and works. That may well not be exactly how we're told it works, but neither is it likely to be how you picture it in your worst paranoid fantasies.

Unfortunately, that would only give a total of 40 members.

Hogwash ? Here's hogwash. Companies not set up to trade for profit. I'm glad you're happy with a corporation acting under the guise of a Defacto Government. It's perfect for screwing you for any tax they care to make up at their leisure. Pay up ignorant slave.
On the other hand, being a sovereign citizen, I don't have to because I know the rules. ;)

Oh yes, 'that freeman stuff' is hogwash alright... for slaves.

Well now you're showing us all your own ignorance. Do you even know the difference between a corporation (established by charter) and a company (est. by registration)? Have you ever even opened a book on company law? Companies can be set up with shares, or without. Shares can be a means of investment, or simply nominal 'membership tickets'. Or you can have some of each. Even so, the return on investments can be limited e.g. where the company exists for the benefit of its workers or the community. To find the purpose of any particular registered company you have to examine its rules (technically its "Memorandum of Incorporation and Articles of Association"). I suggest you do that for the bodies you're interested in, I'd be interested in the results.
As for 'citizenship' that exists in France, the USA and many modern states, but not in the UK, here we're still subjects of the Crown, the feudal system still endures (or maybe in Cornwall we're subject to the Duke, amounts to much the same thing). Any guaranteed rights we happen to have seem in fact to come from Europe, but the Tories egged on by UKIP plan to put an end to any of that. In England at least (though probably not in Scotland) the Westminster parliament is sovereign. Whatever rights they're pleased to allow us, they are free to take back at any time. As the old saying has it, "An Englishman's free to do as he likes ... just so long as he does as he's told".
