  1. I think Bob Egerton’s comments are ridiculous. Aside from the fact the the council is having trouble fulfilling its care of the elderly responsibilities, I should have thought that keeping libraries open, not flogging off county farms and holdings should be higher on the list of priorities than a stadium in the wrong place. And I thnk any councillor around Truro and Kenwyn will also face a backlash if they vote in favour of the funding. The people of Truro and Threemilestone have more reason that others not to want this on their doorstep. I don’t know why anyone thinks otherwise – we have been clear from the start.
