    OT - EU straw poll...

    I'm not fond of the idea of compulsion unless there's a box that says "none of the above" I am waiting for someone to say its their right to spoil the paper and have it counted

    I've voted at every election, general or local and referendums since I reached voting age. Me too. And I think it should be compulsory. Don't know how you would police it. To encourage it, they could have a special booth in Redruth for the Mammajammas

    The majority of what is on the internet to do with politics is completely untrustworthy, including online polls and petitions. Not to the extent you claim. Even if there are multiple email addresses, it wouldn't amount to that much. And a petition is not an election or referendum. It simply asks the Government to debate the issue.

    Oh, and the petition thing is pointless So tell that to the countless women including my wife who were robbed of receiving their pensions earlier because comfortably off Widdicombe (looking forward to her Parliamentary pension) insisted she told each and every woman that they wouldn't receive it. That has proved to be, at best, incorrect. The petition is a way of forcing the Commons to debate the issue and it is brought back into the public domain.

    I thought we looked better when Dier went off. We then seemed to play higher up the pitch. Maybe if you are playing Spain you might need two sitting deeper but against less gifted opposition I think we can dispense with one of them. I'm not sure whether Barkley is the answer in that position. He looked impressive when he came on the scene but his career stagnated at Everton and he doesn't spend enough time on the pitch at Chelsea to demonstrate his ability. With two wide players in Sterling and ANOther, I think we just need a passer in the middle not a runner. Maybe Maddison doesn't fit that. Rice isn't that type either. Not sure who then. But considering the players who were missing, the future looks good and well done to Southgate for picking form players instead of the in crowd that former managers seemed to prefer.

    I see Cornwall are 20-1 to hold the next Referendum Is it worth a fiver You might like this story Ricardo. Cornwall and towns in Cornwall have many days that they celebrate and the Patron Saint of Cornwall is St Piran (an Irishman). But there again I live in Redruth which means Red River. Except Red means river and Ruth means Red. Anyway back to the story. Redruth was celebrating St Pirans day and the leader of Mebyon Kernow, the party that wants independence for Cornwall, was explaining how that Cornwall was really a nation state and if people realised it then the county would be able to hold the Commonwealth Games! A running track with no stand. no Olympic size swimming pool, no Velodrome and athletes having to stay at Mrs Trelawney's Guest House, (please vacate the room by 10am. No Breakfast served after 9am. Beds changed once a week). The rowing could be held at the Leisure Centre gym where the have four rowing machines. Boxing will be held where it always has been, outside the Railway Club. And to think Cornwall voted to leave but has had more EU money than our own government has ever given it.

    Man fined for swallowing goldfish at Bridgwater Fair Vet David Martin said the goldfish was still alive when it was swallowed, the court heard. So are fish dead when they are caught in trawl nets?

    That'll be your voting in the future f*cked then Why? You think the DUP are principled. Broadcast that and you will be labelled as sectionable. They don't want a border but they don't want to be a part of the south. What is their problem? Their seedy 10 votes are causing a divide on this island. Let us English have a bleddy referendum about letting the other three go their own way.

    Birmingham City.... - 12 points?

    Could have been us if we'd got Waveney's stinking rich.... Lorraine Kelly has a bit of dosh left over

    They have had serious problems with owners and FFP for a while. And as Double N allude to, a rich owner does guarantee anything and he could have got his money from illegal or questionable sources.

    If Bolton go ....

    Truro City, nine miles from my house, play in National League South. Cornish Pirates, playing at Penzance, are in the Rugby Championship, one down from the Premiership. Neither have a ground suitable for them to move any higher. So they agreed to put in plans to share a Stadium for Cornwall in Truro three or four years ago. Spiv Cameron, a regular visitor to Cornwall for holidays and using the hospital for the birth of his child, promised at least £3M of Govt money if the rest of the, at the time £12M could be found. So it was going to be Pirates @ £3M, Truro City @ £3M, Cornwall College @ £3M and Cameron to supply the rest. History has since meant that Truro no longer can sell their ground to raise the £3M, and the Govt has done FA (like the pun?). So Pirates agreed to put up Truro City's £3M. But still the Govt has ignored them and I would imagine that inflation will mean that £12M will probably be insufficient to build the ground in its original form. So now, Pirates have bought Truro City and are now the owners of the football ground. So we putting two and two together and for once it seems to make four. Pirates are will not get promoted to Rugby Prem this season anyway. And the Prem clubs want to have no promotion or relegation for the next three seasons anyway. So maybe Pirates can build a better stadium that currently sits on the Truro site for less money than the original £12M. Maybe this is the way forward for clubs. Merge with other sporting associations in their area and share facilities and costs. Maybe for supporters of clubs like Bolton who have a fairly decent ground could share with Bury who don't and it would be a way for clubs to cut costs and stay in the black.

    I always thought of an alternative name for Paul Moy was Les Miserables. Manning the barricade alongside Johnson with his blunderbluss keeping those Remaining Fuzzy Wuzzies at bay.

    Can we go to penalties? Scissors, paper or stone? On the other hand, the loser will want best of two, three or four.
