Mebyon Kernow - Cornish Diet Campaign

The North Cornwall branch of Mebyon Kernow - the Party for Cornwall launched the Cornish Diet Campaign at the Camelford Show on Wednesday

This is to build on the Living Communities theme, the Cornish Diet calls for 80% of all food served on Cornwall Council owned or run premises to come from Cornwall by 2012.

The campaign is being spearheaded by Joanie Willett,

the MK PPC for North Cornwall.

This would include a clear long-term development path so that growers and producers can find and access potential future markets in the public sector. Such activities need support from as many of us as possible, to increase the benefit to local traders in all areas of Cornwall.

Radical Reforms and the Constitutional Reform Bill – the need for decentralisation

Labour announced its Constitutional Reform Bill in July, the long awaited bill tabled by Jack Straw has turned out it seems to be just business as usual and a not much more than a timid tweaking of the fringes of the issues that need addressing.

After the expenses scandal causing so much damage to British politics and public trust in the system, this chance to change the flow of corruption and the iron grip of the Westminster village has been sadly squandered.

Where are the strong willed left-wing firebrands when you need one ?

If Westminster is serious about cleaning up politics it needs to decentralise, and remove the Quangos. Its not rocket science but it does involve trying to wrestle back the power from those who have become addicted to it.

So my though for the day is that :

Decentralised politics is the only solution to a more transparent political system.

UNPO Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organisation

I was shown this group and thought it might be of interest to you all,

So what is the UNPO:

"The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) is an international, nonviolent, and democratic membership organisation. Its members are indigenous peoples, minorities, and unrecognised or occupied territories who have joined together to protect and promote their human and cultural rights, to preserve their environments, and to find nonviolent solutions to conflicts which affect them. "

I think it would be good if we put our weight behind them to see if you can get more recognition for the Kernow and its culture.
