London will be told Cornwall is lovely and blue.
It won’t be told that the Minor Injury unit is closed today and forcing a pensioner to rely on his family relative to supposedly gain healthcare in Bodmin. London will be told that Cornwall has no problems, it’s a fairytale for everyone and suffering doesn’t exist. Once again, the marketplace is benefiting from my misfortune, unfortunately. People who describe life in Cornwall as being in a magical kingdom and nothing else are deeply wrong. There is no safety net and many have a zero chance of their lives improving. This is the message that London needs to hear.
