Jeremy Faull, Cornwall County Councillor 1977-1985
Jeremy Faull was the party’s first-ever county councillor elected in 1977, representing a ward near Withiel, Bodmin, Cornwall. He won the seat, rather unexpectedly, when the retiring Conservative councillor decided to support him. Jeremy was one of a group of early ecological pioneers and friends – including Teddy Goldsmith and Peter Bunyard - who had bought land in the area. Jeremy held his seat on Cornwall County Council for the Ecology Party through until 1985.
I count myself lucky that I was able to call Teddy a friend. I stayed at his house twice and went with him to a number of events. I think it important to be clear about Teddy for three reasons
- He is a major part of the real green tradition of which many GP members are ignorant or ill informed
- There is much to learn from Teddy’s strengths and weaknesses.
- We should do right by the man simply for its own sake.
