CORNWALL POLITICAL BLOGS AND TWITTER

20 May 2015


Updated October 2015.
Taking the word political broadly, there are now several political blogs (including websites) and twitter accounts dealing with Cornwall and representing a range of views. The interests of the blog and twitter authors vary very much and some authors are more regular in posting than others. I’ve revamped the post and listed the blogs and twitter accounts separately. I have then listed them alphabetically by surname of account owner or title in two groups: those of Cornwall MPs and prospective parliamentary candidates(PPCs) for the 2015 general election and southwest MEPs; and others including those of Cornwall unitary councillors. I have not listed accounts that are inactive for six months or more. I have put in my estimation of the political stances. There are also facebook sites which I haven’t catalogued.
