    Magnússon Starts For Iceland

    I'm surprised someone doesn't ask Tomlin if his wife still makes him sleep in the spare room. Reckon he wouldn't have a sentient response for that

    VAR - If this is the future of football

    What a silly overreaction. It's going to take a bit of time to implement properly as the referees have to change so much of what they are used to when doing the job. I think they are already getting better at it and soon there will be little to no problem with it. Of course on here we have people who are probably still angry that you can make substitutions, such is the hatred of change on OTIB.

    Oh dear Devon and Cornwall police....

    Don't even bother getting the moral compass out. I'm using it as an example (whether it was a special Cornish 'alternative fact' or not) to show how the man is despised down here. This was an opinion seen from numerous different demographics; including those you would not expect such as local business owners. Interestingly, I thought it was an emulation of how people rationalise other prevalent forms of terrorism, such as militant Islamic or far-right terrorism. We pretend there was no possible explanation as to why seemingly ordinary people support those extremes when they are so reprehensible, yet it was intriguing to see these people (some of whom were respected community leaders, near altruistic in how they have served the area) express happiness with the event.

    New kit

    The 17/18 kits will take some beating. Hope we don't go for yellow and navy though, never liked those

    Sadly, I was there and can confirm that no toxic gas was released upon completion of the message

    Domestic troubles on the Cardiff forum

    Reminds me of an Argyle game I got dragged to where the halftime announcement was something like 'My darling wife, I know I have done you wrong, but I beg for you to please take me back. I know you are here today, and I want to make things right' Whole crowd burst into a fit of laughter. What a stupid place to do something like that. Do they not have telephones in Plymouth or something? Actually don't answer that...

    Oh dear Devon and Cornwall police....

    This is by far the most accurate perspective. Locals hate Rick Stein. He is the poster boy of the second home owners that drain our county, inflate house prices, and gentrify the seaside villages to the point of being unrecognisable. This is something that transcends political orientation. His fish is crap, expensive and no longer from Cornwall. He snubs local fishermen, aggressively aims to put traditional local fish and chip shops out of business just to add to his empire, and then has the audacity to claim he loves this region. He doesn't- he is just profiting off its gentrification. If I ever saw him, I would tell him that he is a walking cancer to us. Padstein is a very common derogatory nickname for Padstow and a scary sign of what the rest of the Cornish coast could become. I have to admit, when his restaurant got firebombed I thought it was hilarious. In fact, I didn't speak with a single person who did not think that. The man is as cold as the fish he tries to shove down our throats and the sooner he gets out of here, the better.

    Before you try and stab me, sadly for the massive majority of Cornishman, yes remaining is a no brainer. We DO NOT GET ANYTHING FROM THE UK GOVERNMENT. Sure, there's some around who may have made an educated decision to leave, such as the MoD employees for example. However, even people who voted Leave here are regretting it. You might not like what I am saying but I am speaking from living here and knowing the sheer amount of EU investment that props this place up. The low crime rate makes people overlook the sheer poverty and neglect, with more local services leaving due to cost cutting. Many got caught up in the disgusting lies that the Leave campaign told us all. So no, I don't think they were dumb. I do, however, think they were heavily misguided, and many will regret their decision when we fall into further disrepair as a county, with nobody left to listen to us. Just a follow up- how many of you who liked Noggers' post are actually from Cornwall? Furthermore, are any of you fishermen from Cornwall?

    All well and good, but just a drop in the ocean and ultimately ineffective compared to what was being sent to us. EU funding was being used for improving our infrastructure; especially our road system which on the whole is not fit for purpose and a key obstacle towards outside investment in Cornwall even being considered by organisations in other parts of the country. Even when out of the EU, we won't be able to compete with the global market for seafood, so mass production the likes of which we saw before will not be viable. Sure, we can sell a few in a niche market as being local produce, but considering the EU were intending to put £341m into Cornwall by 2020, we are going to have to catch a hell of a lot of bloody fish to make that up! Not to mention that the EU themselves put in £1.5m to refurbish Newlyn itself and its harbour following decades of neglect of West Cornwall by both ruling parties.

    I did my homework, and voted Remain. Sadly as a populace we aren't known for being well educated...

    England to play in red against Tunisia?

    Ah really? That's a shame. Had a tenner on them all walking out in the 2012 Goalkeeping kit

    So Gareth wants to send us to work happy,what about if your retired?

    Then he hopes to happily lubricate the inevitable slide into the grave.

    Nowhere in England (or even the whole UK) beats it for that. You won't find better beaches around than those on the North Cornish coast.

    This is the same Devon and Cornwall police whose 'Commissioner' claimed she supported people getting guns to fight against 'terrorists'- seemingly oblivious of all the potential issues that would come from it! I loved growing up here, but, like so many promising graduates, it is time to leave. Among the lowest wages, yet amongst the highest growth in property prices out of London. Whole seaside villages lay dormant in the winter due to them being second homes. I still maintain that we have more in common with Wales and Scotland than the rest of England, but we're too small to care about. We are the world's first post-industrial region, and a sad indictment of what is to come in many other regions in Europe that are beginning to get rid of their industry too. Thanks to the second home owners registering to vote at their Cornish addresses, we're all safe Tory seats too! We were always last in the queue to the point where we qualified for much of the EU's funding for the poorest areas of Northern Europe. Now thanks to Brexit, we are still at the back of the queue, only the queue is much, much bigger. Oh well, at least we took back control! The bus said so! Grrr. I think I need a glass of water. Not to drink, but to pour over my head.
