<t>PS. thanks for the Private Messages regarding the Cornish language and that those who post here are not in the majority but quite the reverse. Point taken. It is an interesting project but I am inclined to steer clear of it for the time being until I believe the idiocy surrounding ot has settled ...

Hands up who wants to be in a public place and to inhale someone else's cancerous cigarette fumes ?

A filthy and selfish habit which has caused death and ill health on a grand scale.

What real person in Cornwall other than the dozen or so who post here could honestly give a fig about devolution ? Real people in the county have real concerns and this doesn't even figure on the list.

<t>Yes, it certainly is and the comments and abuse on Cornwall 24 only serve to confirm my thoughts and that of many others that the Cornish Language is a complete and utter waste of time and money and is certainly a non starter.<br/> <br/> I am telling anyone who expresses any interest in it to tak...

<t>I have just read a book called 'Our Future is History' by a John Angarrack. I am about to read a second book by the same author entitled 'Scat to Larrups'.<br/> <br/> Old laws still exist just like old castles but in my opinion just like the castles, they might still be there but they have no fun...

<t>Well, I have never heard the Cornish language openly used on the street. Looking down some of the postings on this website, I can perhaps understand why. Two speakers of it could never agree on very much and would end up falling out, probably using English language or should I say, Anglo Saxon ! ...

Oh no, not an assembly for Cornwall. A small backwater of England just does not need more government but less. We spend enough taxes on politicians now and need less government and politicians not more.

<t>There is no border for the police as they are responsible for Devon and Cornwall and so it is not surprising they draw resources from the County next door for large operations in Cornwall. Come on, they have a job to do and act on information supplied to them by the public.<br/> If you don't like...
