Local politics at its best

While doing some research into the candidates, their backgrounds, and their campaigns in some of the constituencies I may be visiting ahead of the UK parliamentary elections, I ran across this gem:

CAROLINE RIGHTON, the Conservative prospective MP for St Austell & Newquay, has welcomed the decision by Cornwall Council to remove the pissoirs in central Newquay and re- open public toilets.

Speaking on the decision, Caroline said: “Thank goodness! I’ve always thought these pissoirs were disgusting and have always been against them. They hardly sent out the right message to the families and visitors the town wants to attract. […”]

But what I really want to know is, where does Mebyon Kernow, um, stand on this issue?

And just to continue the theme a tad longer, I initially looked up this district because I was wondering whether the town of Looe was within its boundaries. (It is not, apparently.)
