Elected (and appointed) Scots abound all over England including the south west.
Conservative and Lib Dem candidates stand in England usually because they cannot secure election in Scotland, especially now with the Scottish National Party under Alex Salmond so rampant!
Here in the south west, Scottish MPs include Ian Liddell-Grainger – Bridgwater & Somerset West and Liam Fox – Somerset North.
One might also draw attention to Kerry McCarthy MP, a Labour carpetbagger in Bristol East, and to Robert Buckland MP, Welsh Conservative carpetbagger in Swindon South, neither of whom appear to have had any connection with the people they purport to represent prior to being parachuted in by their respective Brit parties!
More relevant to the impending European Elections, we have Sir Graham Watson a Scottish pro EU Lib Dem who invariably refers to ‘Britain’ in preference to English!
Sir Graham Watson, Scottish Lib Dem,
who does not represent England or her south west region
It is no mere coincidence that Danny Alexander, another Scottish Lib Dem and the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, is today announcing that the ‘Cornish’ (whoever they are precisely) will be given same status as people from Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. This means that that EU dictators will be instructing the British Government to expend more of Britain’s [ie England’s] public funds on the residents of Cornwall.
Nor is it a coincidence that the so called Cornish nationalists have not nominated any candidates in the forthcoming EU Elections.
[Mind you, the distrusting Lib Dems ~ probably measuring others by their own yardstick ~ waited until after nominations had closed thus ensuring that Mebyon Kernow really could not ‘rat out’ on the deal, before making any public announcements!]
This reduces opposition to the above-mentioned Graham Watson and his list of Lib Dem candidates, and is one of a desperate set of measures designed to bolster flagging support for Lib Dems and all they stand for, which is clearly not the interests of the south west’s and England’s!
No doubt the plan is for Mebyon Kernow’s votes to go to the Lib Dems in gratitude for this largesse!
Quite simply, Mebyon Kernow has been bribed, and the Lib Dems in Coalition have done the bribing using England’s money!
The Telegraph’s report of this squalid deal may be found here, together with a poll on the matter: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/10783741/Cornish-to-be-given-national-minority-status.html
Who now disbelieves that the EU schemes to fragment England and to destroy her as a national entity!
