<t>It seems to me that mr Everson is merely paying lip service to this public consultation process.

Why do people seem so surprised that Cornwall has real problems?

Oh yes I remember.....it's because it's supposed to be one big holiday camp touting stereotypical idyllic rural lives and a slower pace of life. :roll:

Cornwall is not like that.

What's the difference between The Island in St Ives and St Michael's Mount? :roll:

The Island in St Ives isn't an island

<t><br/> Kattel... how come Hayle Community School is a specialist language school... <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> I think they get to choose, depending on what other schools are in the area.
