Cornwall Councillor Thinks Disabled Children Should be “Put Down”

Colin Brewer, independent councillor for Wadebridge East – remember that name if you live in that area come the May elections- told a Disability Cornwall stand at Lys Kernow, “Disabled children cost the council too much money and should be put down.”.

An investigation ensued but he refuses to resign over the remarks which took place in October 2011. In my opinion he should be sacked, never mind resigning and also have a visit from the local Constabulary.

Cll. Brewer

He wittered in his defence to Disability Cornwall: “While I meant no offence by my remarks to you I can see, in retrospect, that they were ill judged and insensitive and should not have been made at all.”

He later snivelled, “I had come to their stall after a long council meeting and I was probably a little bit het up. I used to be a salesman and I said it to provoke them into a discussion – I expected them to parry it and talk to me.”

Seemingly a ‘Class-A’ asshole and someone who most certainly, in 21st century Cornwall, should not be party to making any decsions that affect us at all.

Natural ‘England’s’ Unlawful Actions

You will remember back’long I wrote of this crowd operating in Cornwall – Natural ‘England’ and their poor conduct with regards Penwith moors.
Well the fantastic pressure group Save Penwith Moors has just released a dossier of NE’s unlawful works and omissions/actions since 2008 and it makes for shocking reading!
If you value Cornish heritage and history support SPM, they have a Facebook page as well as their website.

Below is the link to the paper:

Cornish Sports Stadium

With Mebyon Kernow talking of supporting a Cornish sporting stadium, (Used instead of the silly ‘Stadium 4 Cornwall’ or ‘S4C’ <that’s a TV channel!> or ‘Stadium for Cornwall’ which no doubt it will end up being called, just like the equally silly ‘Hall for…’. That was the campaign… Where’s the imagination?!), I though I’d throw in my view.

I feel an all-purpose sports stadium would be a fantastic asset for Cornwall so long as it’s not an excuse to build even MORE houses! The proposals for the already heavily congested Threemilestone from the last few years were exactly that – basically building a new village/town that just happened to have a stadium in it. Wrong.

My own feeling is that use should be made of already existing facilities, in fact one in particular. Carn Brea Leisure Centre and adjoining land in Pool.

Stadium Proposal

Not only is this fairly central, it’s just a couple of minutes off the A30. As you can see the main train line runs alongside – it wouldn’t take much to install a platform, indeed, the disused Carn Brea Halt is in the vicinity (even without, Camborne and Redruth stations are only 10 minutes away.).

This site would allow a stadium to be built on the site of the athletics track. An all-purpose stadium allowing athletics, football, concerts and of course our national sport, rugby. Olympic sized swimming pool, conference centres and state of the art sports science and gym facilities would be part of the whole, making this the jewel in Cornwall’s sporting crown.

That would be my dream but I’m only interested in something that would benefit Cornish folk in general and youngsters whose future careers in sport would be boosted greatly, not in lining my pockets like the carpet-baggers who either want to build unneccessary housing or supermarkets and view a Cornish stadium as an easy way in…

Cornish/Gypsy/Traveller – all the Same According to Cornwall Council

The last few days has seen a furore over Cornwall Council’s ethnic monitoring (first spotted by one of Kernow King’s followers) on housing benefit forms:

John Kirkhope’s FOI Request re: The Duchy

John Kirkhope is a solicitor and Notary Public who has long studied Cornish law and has been examining the very mysterious and complex Duchy of Cornwall and their latter claims of ‘private estate’.

“Yes, Cornwall is a separate feudal authority, ie kingdom.”

So says Kevin Cahill, a House of Lords scholar and researcher with no Cornish nationalist axe to grind.

“Cornwall really is a separate kingdom, as has long been claimed by activists west ot the Tamar.” so says Martin Hesp, a Western Morning News  journo with no Cornish nationalist axe to grind.

So what the hell is going on? Well, Mr Cahill has published a facsimile of an old manuscript known as the ‘Second Domesday’ or more correctly, ‘Return of Owners of Land, 1873’. This dusty tome shows who owns what in Britain and as we in Cornwall have known for a long time, you don’t own squat.
Talking to people in my job, they are always amazed when I mention the Duke of Cornwall owning everything in Cornwall; the land, the trees, the leaves on the trees, your house (or at least the land it stands on) etc. Across the border in merrie England, it’s the Crown.

Here, is one more thing to further our cause. We don’t make things up, we are not fantasists. We put our argument forth with pure, hard and substantiated fact. Just because authority has chosen to keep the people in the dark, does not mean it’s not true. You’d think people would get that in the 21st century more than ever…

So here is a scan of the article that appeared in the WMN. You can’t find it online as they (WMN) haven’t deemed it worthy of putting up. Well, we wouldn’t want the populous to know the truth now, would we? It’s a wonder this article was ever printed at all but it was and it boosts Cornwall’s cause no end.
