Unfortunately many councillors are not as objective as Owen Slot, and I still fear that the east and mid-Cornwall voices will sway the decision against us. The geography of Cornwall doesn't help either, being long and narrow. If the county were circular, with Truro in the middle, it would be a doddle selling the stadium.
Is it too late to get a few JCB's out and lop a bit off each end, make Cornwall a bit more pasty-shaped?!

Listening to some of the councillors who say the stadium is too far away from their part of Cornwall you would think they are hundreds of miles away and that there are no roads. Perhaps they should stand down as councillors as by the same logic it must be too far for them to attend council meetings in Truro.

Funny how they manage to get to a council meeting - and get paid for it. An argument with as many holes in it as a colander!!

Another article in Daily Mail supporting S4C.
NO vote by Cornwall Councillors will send out a negative message of the Duchy which is crying out for Inward Investment to get Companies into Cornwall with improved wages.
Cornwall is at a crossroads!

Hi all from Bristol. When is the final council decision ? From the Guardian article it seemed like it was going to be yesterday (or was that referring to lasts weeks debate and vote and confusing me)

Meeting starts at 10-30 am, but the vote could be anytime....my guess is around lunchtime.

You can follow the meeting live by following this link to the council website
[cornwall.public-i.tv]

It looks as if the stadium proposal is the next item to be discussed.
