This last month has been tinged with sadness following the passing of former Cornwall MP Candy Atherton. Candy was vital in securing EU Objective One funding for Cornwall whilst she was the brilliant MP for Falmouth and Camborne. She dedicated her life to public service in Cornwall and made a huge difference to people's lives. Her work rate and dedication on behalf of the Cornish people and the Labour Party will be sorely missed. Candy's kindness and generosity shone through. She could always be relied upon to stand up for Cornwall and stand up for Labour values. My thoughts and deepest sympathies are with her husband Brod, her mother Pam and all of her family and friends.  We miss her.

This week is Living Wage UK Week, and yesterday it was announced that the Living Wage has increased to £8.75 for workers outside London. This will see over 150,000 workers receive a pay rise, which is needed even more in theses times of high inflation and wage stagnation.

Brexit update 

Theresa May’s speech in Florence last week brought a welcome change of tone there are still many questions to be answered regarding what the ‘Implementation’ period will include never mind what the final deal will look like. This all means that businesses and citizens are unable to effectively plan for the future, despite being 15 months after the referendum and 6 months after the Government triggered the Article 50 process with no plan in place.                                   

I’ve written a couple of articles this month on Brexit, follow the links below to read them: 

The will of the people for Brexit was not a vote for border queues, cuts in subsidies and a neglect of the NHS

Imagine you’re going to buy a new TV. You want it to be able to record programmes, connect to the internet, have Netflix and surround sound. The salesman confidently tells you that your new purchase has all of this and more. But once you get your new TV home, you discover that not only does it have none of these features, it’s not even colour. Your promised world-leading, unbeatable, top-of-the-range television is a black and white set. Put simply, you’ve been sold a dud.

The will of the people was not a vote for border queues, subsidy cuts, or neglect of our public services

Brexit Update  

 

Last weekend the Labour Party’s position on Brexit moved on.  The position is now that Britain should remain in both the Single Market and the Customs Union through a necessary transition period after March 2019 and keeps this open as a long term option.  This couldn’t be more important for the South West as, for example, our region is one of the largest manufacturing regions in the UK and relies on the truly frictionless trade and customs arrangements that the Single Market and Customs Union ensure.  I am hopeful that this sensible move from the Party leadership allied with the arithmetic in Westminster will see the UK staying as members of these two vital agreements in the future.
