Queen guitarist Brian May is visiting Penzance on Friday, as part of a new political campaign.

The rock legend has set up a campaign organisation called 'Common Decency' which says it supports those who stand up strongly against vested interests; for the less powerful; to protect and respect animals and wildlife, and to de-escalate the world from war. The campaign hopes to re-engage people with the political process, saying it is a political movement that ignores the colour of parties and looks directly at representatives.

Dr May will meet Parliamentary candidate for St Ives, Andrew George in Penzance and says he has long supported his work on the environment, wildlife, social justice, the NHS and tax-dodging and his commitment to work across party divides.

Andrew George said: "I'm delighted to welcome Brian to the constituency - Common Decency is a brilliant campaign. Political Parties give the electorate a sense of the background colour of the candidate but we need to get rid of tribalism and work together for the common good."

Dr May will speak at a rally at 12:30 pm at Penzance Cricket Club.

Mr May will then meet with students at Penwith College.
