    Default A Mebyon Kernow Broadcast

    Mebyon Kernow - the Party for Cornwall has just produced its first-ever party political broadcast.

    I am afraid that you will not see it on the television because, in order to qualify for air-time, MK would need to stand in nine regions in the European Parliamentary Elections. The broadcast can be viewed online at: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYIgzI6Rl4c&feature=channel]A Party Political Broadcast by Mebyon Kernow[/ame]

    I think it will destroy a few preconceptions you may hold about MK and Cornish nationalism. Have a look and let me know what you think.

    What preconceptions are they, Cornubian? The video was more or less what I expected the Cornish nationalists to be about

    What should I have been expecting?

    1 ) Mebyon Kernow do not base any of their policies on race.
    2 ) They are not a right wing party with policies of discrimination against any group.
    3 ) They are politically left of centre with a firm concern for Social Justice. As part of their social agenda they demand justice for all the people of Cornwall. Especially FAIR government, FAIR levels of public services and FAIR levels of properity.
    4 ) Mebyon Kernow defends all the citizens of Cornwall's right to describe themselves in anyway they see fit.
    5 ) they defend the Cornish Communities right to make its own decisions, in the real world local people need to decide their own fate not distant masters in far away cities.
    6 ) Cornish Culture is open to all who live in or associate with Cornwall. A strong confident Cornish culture need not fear outside influence.
    7 ) Mebyon Kernow is strongly environmental in ethos, but recognises the need for positive change to allow appropriate business growth in the Duchy.
    8 ) Cornwall is an historic nation of Europe and MK demand a NEW constitutional settlement for all the people of Britain to reflect REALITY not fanciful government regions. Real communities prosper, fake ones fail.

    Hope that clears things up.

    Are you pro-Cornish independence? What links do you have with Plaid Cymru or the SNP?

    Local power in local hands. I support greater local powers for the people of Cornwall.
