It's been just over a month since there was a 'Historic' deal signed for Cornwall as I mentioned before this has caused much debate and confusion for people in Cornwall including counclliors Cornwall Council meeting leaves people scratching their heads.

Not long after the deal was signed the council launched an online consultation with a questionnaire(Consultation on the proposed Cornwall Devolution Deal), the council says that the results of the consultation will be considered before any decisions are made to approve the Deal.

However not long after the consultation was launched the questionnaire was accused of being biased and came under fire from critics who said it was very one-sided.
