I live in Launceston.
The CPA is fighting 31 seats nationwide at this election.

Why am I standing?
At first I was dismayed at the tedious news that Mrs May wanted to put us through another general election, so soon, and that Jeremy Corbyn was minded to co-operate with her to make that possible.
Soon after the news broke, though, I visited the present leader of the CPA, Sidney Cordle (MBE), at his home, offering my services to help with the CPA’s campaign generally. Sidney turned down my offer to help in that way. Instead, he pressed me to stand again as a candidate here in North Cornwall, but this time as a CPA candidate.
I satisfied myself that the CPA was still pro-family. So the CPA will support the Restore The Family policy that is dear to my heart. I also found that I agreed with the CPA’s other policies. That shouldn’t be surprising, because they are derived from the same Christian values that I hold.
So, here I am.
