The Cornwall Reports exclusive on local MPs links to Israel is very timely. I have just today returned from taking part in The Big Ride for Palestine, cycling with 200 others from all over the UK and beyond (including three of us from Cornwall – my wife, Euan McPhee from Falmouth and myself) from Coventry to London. 

Cornwall Reports, the news website for Cornwall, has published their exclusive here. It is behind the paywall, but Cornwall Reports is well worth subscribing to if you are interested in Cornwall issues. It is very low cost and totally subscriber funded and the editorial line is well left of centre and focuses on issues around the local NHS and dysfunctional Cornwall Council amongst other things. 

The week before last I finally got around to reading Naomi Klein’s post-Trumplection book “No Is Not Enough”

It is very good, particularly in the first half we she expounds on how Trump is not The Problem, he is a symptom of The Problem. The logical consequence of what came before – if not Trump then something else just the same. 

Very easy to read she goes on to critique the negativity inherent in always being against things, protesting about this or that, shuffling through the streets chanting slogans, always on the back foot and failing to ignite the fire within.
