We are a growing group of people, drawn from different political parties and no party, who seek to work for a kinder, more inclusive society, and to promote a progressive alternative to the divisive tribal politics we see today. We also seek to take a stand against the yawning inequalities which see an ever greater concentration of wealth, political and media power concentrated in the hands of a tiny elite.
This is about a more pragmatic, consensual politics that listens respectfully to difference, does not impose one point of view, speaks with honesty and acts with integrity. What matters is the greater good and a mature politics sees political parties as vehicles towards that end, not as ends in themselves.
Just as importantly we are here to assert progressive values of open-ness, tolerance, inclusivity and freedom of expression. We see no conflict between Cornish identity and that based on faith or ethnicity, for Cornwall is our home. It is the sense of connection to people, place and community that matters, regardless of where you were born. We believe that our different communities can and must come together to take back power and shape our own future.
