Ask a question in Cornwall – if you dare!


see the video here

Apparently the Cornishman in this video clip arrived moments after the Mayor of Penzance warned the public no questions could be asked, unless they had been submitted by members of the public in advance of the meeting. These rules apply to most councils across the country. BBC Cornwall has shared this video of the Town Council meeting when Charlie Farley was wrestled out of the public gallery by three heavies, whilst he shouted:

“is this a democracy,¬†all I wanted was to ask a question?”

Let’s face it – questioning local government officials/councillors gets more difficult every day – and even if you do succeed – try getting an honest, factual answer!
