It’s almost as if the Penzance nurses read Progressive Pulse!
By comparison Corbyn had a rather well attended rally in Cornwall as this photo indicates:
This is in former LibDem country and I think that the LibDems are going to be largely lost (except, I suspect, with their ex and pretty left wing and rebellious LibDem MP for St Ives, Andrew George). Labour are in with a substantial chance because of the disatrous poverty in mainsteam Cornwall – that’s not the the ‘guilded frame’ of the coast – where there are few Cornish left, except perhaps in Newlyn – but in the ‘mediocre picture within’ of inland Cornwall.
It is true most of Cornwall voted to leave, but many – anecdotally – now realise they were sadly misled, particularly as their single greatest source of income is EU funding… Something I doubt the Tories would ever replicate.
And since, these days, Cornwall has an outpost of Exeter University as well as a Cornish, Falmouth (Arts) University, I suggest both Truro and Falmouth constituency as well as Camborne and Redruth – which, in parts has, too, a significant student population – as well as being the heart of the ‘working’ (probably zero hours) Cornwall, could either or both be a surprising Labour success.
Let us hope the Cornish, as well as others, see, at last, the light.
