"Westminster Politicians"

Quite often we refer to the big political parties as 'Westinster Parties'.

Whatever the colour rosette - blue, red, orange or purple - the big parties are run from Westminster central. It seems that the MPs in these parties are often career driven and they have to toe the party line or else hey are out on their ear.

A prime example of Westminster making choices for us in Cornwall has been offered by the Lib Dems as a topdog in the Lib Dems has interfered in their selection of local candidate for 2015. 

Cllr Jones feels that: "It feels as though Truro and Falmouth have been lumbered with somebody they didn’t want because the national party felt it was the right thing to do"

Cllr Jones has left the Lib Dems and joined UKIP. A great pity that he has left one Westminster party for another - but you can see his point.
