Objective One – Andrew George got it pretty well right!

Bernard Deacon

Back in 1998 when Objective One was won, Andrew George warned that if the Council and other policy-makers continued with the policy follies of the past, things such as devonwall and population-led growth, Objective One would turn out to be a disaster. We’d ‘end up with more tarmac,more concrete, more population, but fewer jobs, lower wages, lower GDP and the continuing marginalisation of local people’. Andrew got it dead right apart from the jobs – and how many of the better paid jobs have gone to Cornish people? Needless to say, this is a question not on the research agenda.
