We Will Fight Them On The Beaches .....
So quoth Winston Churchill in 1940 and after 63 years those words have finally come true.
For, so almost quoth Penwith beach manager and chief lifeguard, Phil Drew, after complaining about the increase in verbal abuse and threats of violence directed at lifeguards by "the great unwashed".
Penwith is looking into ways of more efficiently controlling and policing the areas beaches in the future. We say ..... just don't bother having any lifeguards and let the emmets look after themselves!

Three nearby towns, Redruth and Camborne (quelle surprise) and (shock horror) Cornwall's capital, Truro, have been nominated in the Idler magazine as three of the most crap places to live in Britain.
The glowing tributes from residents included:-
Truro - 'the ultimate, boring, ugliest place on earth'.
Camborne - 'everything you've ever heard about Essex'.
Redruth - 'appears to have been burnt down and boarded up'.
They don't mention that in the tourist brochures, do they? No wonder everyone comes to St. Ives!

See, how good you are at cracking the conundrum:-
The caption under the photo explained that it showed a local sprog and the subject matter of the 'Guess The Name Of The Teddy' competition.
