Beavers return to Scotland encourages Welsh wildlife campaigners

Welsh wildlife campaigners have welcomed the Scottish government announcement last week that the Eurasian beaver is to be formally recognised as a native species, four centuries after being hunted to extinction in Scotland. Lead partners in the Scottish Beaver Trial, the Scottish Wildlife Trust and the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) hailed the decision as a major success story for conservation.

Protest outside office of Cornish MP

22 November 2016

Today's protest outside the Liskeard Constituency Office of Sherryl Murray MP.

It is a very rare occasion indeed that people in Cornwall stand outside an MPs office and protest about that sitting MP. 

Organised by a group of individuals at short notice, we suggest that although the number was relatively small, the massive social and mainstream media expressions of disgust at this MP added to this little demonstration should act as a clear warning to Cornwall's MPs.

Loyalty & patriotism is for life, not just a fad Sherryl Murray MP!

During October, 2016, 'Kernow Matters To Us' (KMTU) wrote to all 213 Town and Parish Councils in Cornwall asking them to join with us in the stand against the unlawful imposition of a cross border Westminster parliamentary constituency on Cornwall, a silly proposal made by the unelected quango, the Boundary Commission and now widely referred to as 'Devonwall'.

We mourn the passing of Audrey Randle Pool, Cornish speaker, who was active in the long running campaign to save and promote our Cornish language.

The unelected civil servants have gone and what a message they take with them! Speaker after speaker, some 50 of them, many of them our members, bravely walked to that lectern and whilst being filmed in conditions resembling a criminal trial, passionately argued for Cornwall, some speaking in our Cornish language - while only three speakers, all Conservatives, failed to speak out against a cross-Tamar seat

So what now?
