Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall believes that respect for individuals, communities and peoples should lie at the very core of the political philosophy of all progressive political movements.
And yet, the ‘pre-election’ atmosphere of early 2005 has been characterised by the unsavoury spectacle of the two main London parties, and various rightwing groups, squabbling over the issues of immigration and asylum.
Instead of working to promote tolerance and compassion in our society, they have preferred to focus on the intolerance spouted by the tabloid press for their own political advantage.
We must all work towards real equality, which will benefit all society, eliminating out-dated attitudes and stereotypes, allowing all members of our communities the freedom to live their lives as they choose.
Racism is an evil that can be found in all societies and Cornwall is no exception. Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall pledges full and unequivocal support for stiff sentences for race and hate crimes. There is no place in the Cornish community for any type of discrimination.
