If elected to Cornwall Council, I will be the voice of sustainability and resilience, which is currently sadly lacking. Climate Change together with the world wide energy crisis leading to ever higher energy costs are the defining problems of our time, threatening the lifestyles of our and future generations. That is why we must re-localise our way of life, reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and develop a local economy in food, renewable energy, services and other sectors in the face of uncertain future.

Cornwall is one of the poorest regions in the UK, but it has the potential to benefit substantially by sustainably harvesting its food, energy and other natural and human resources. Unlike all other political parties, MK has no masters in London to overrule policies that are best for Cornwall. MK councillors stand up for Cornwall, for all the people of Cornwall, without distinctions.

Many other candidates latch on to sustainability in their manifestos, but few practice it in real life. We do. We run one of the most sustainable organic farms in the UK: winners of Best Small Scale Renewable Energy Scheme in Cornwall, BBC Food and Farming sustainable Farmer of the Year finalist and other awards. I know how to live and farm sustainably and I can help the whole of Cornwall similarly to prosper through self-reliance and resilience.

So I urge you this time to vote for Cornwall, vote for MK and make that possible.
