"Respect the Tamar" Rally a great success

The Jubilee Green at Saltash was today awash with Cornish flags, as over 400 people protested at the likely creation of a cross-Tamar constituency.

The Rally was addressed by a range of speakers. These included Adam Killeya and Edward Andrews, mayors of Saltash and Torpoint, Andrew Long on behalf of Mebyon Kernow, Mick Paynter Grand Bard of the Cornish Gorseth, Chairman of Cornwall Council Pat Harvey, Conservative MP Sheryl Murray and Liberal Democrat MP Stephen Gilbert, Jen Forbes from the Cornwall Labour Party and UKIP MEP Trevor Colman.

It sent a clear message to London about the growing cross-party consensus to protect Cornwall's integrity.

I will blog in more detail about the Rally soon.
