Scott Mann won’t be supporting ‘Devonwall’

“I am disappointed to see once again that the boundary commission has proposed a cross-border seat between Devon and Cornwall. I think that the logistics of dealing with three local authorities, two health authorities, and the sheer size of the new constituency would be problematic for any MP.

 

“I am of the view that Cornwall should be considered a special case and remain whole, and that we shouldn’t be cutting the number of MPs at a time when we are getting more powers back from the European Union to Westminster. The Boundaries Commission should be asked to equalise the constituencies with 650 MPs.

 

“I won’t be supporting these proposals.”

    No “self interest of course” wonder if he supports the other boundary changes that will rob Labour of 40+ seats? Unlikely!

    Cornwall needs Scott and the other five MPs to actually vote against Devonwall. A mere ‘not going to support’ won’t work. Look at what the NI MPs have secured – millions of £s funding for their propping up of the government. If our six MPs in Cornwall took that approach just imagine what we should have had. They could have exercised massive influence if they worked together for Cornwall. Come on Scott – ‘not supporting’ isn’t good enough. Cornwall needs you to say a very clear NO.

    PLEASE, SCOTT MANN, CAMPAIGN IN PARLIAMENT AGAINST THIS VERY STUPID IDEA. CORNWALL NEEDS TO BE A SPECIAL CASE, OUR ELECTED MP NEEDS TO WORK FOR THE PEOPLE OF NORTH CORNWALL, NOT HAVE DIVIDED LOYALTIES OF
    CORNWALL versus DEVON.
    STAND UP AGAINST THIS, PLEASE.
