A lifelong Conservative, she joined The Brexit Party to “fire a very loud warning shot across the bows” of the established parties.
Rachel Johnson, Change UK
“Politics is broken. Let’s change it.” .
Journalist Rachel Johnson is the No.1 Candidate for Change UK.
Well known on our TV screens for appearances on programmes such as Question Time and Politics Live, she also participated in a Celebrity Big Brother in 2018.
The Independent Group/Change UK were formed this year from the Brexit fallout as a new political party.
James Mustoe, The Conservative Party
The popular Cornwall Councillor for Mevagissey is now second on the Conservative candidate list. James is a keen environmental campaigner, and currently works for Cornish MP Steve Double.
James said of the Euro elections:
“We shouldn’t be here.”
“But as it stands, the UK has to take part in the EU elections that are taking place on 23 May.”
“I am deeply frustrated by those in Westminster and in Brussels who have allowed this to happen.”
“However I believe change is best achieved by working within the system to change it.”
Jayne Kirkham, Labour Party
“Cornwall needs a voice in the EU” Jayne told Cornish Stuff in a recent interview.
Kirkham stood for Labour in Truro & Falmouth at the last general election and is now a Cornwall Councillor for Falmouth Smithwick.
“I think it’s really important that there’s a voice for the part of the country where that structural funding goes to say how it’s being spent.”
The money could be distributed better and that the decisions as to where it goes should be more devolved by the national government”, she said.
Ticket applications are now closed.
