The G 7 big meet , But why Cornwall ????


Recommended Posts

Hello, as above begs the question which WALLY in Government decided Cornwall was the must be place, apart from the cost for the extra 3000 extra Police officers , do you think the local people had any say ? apart from the extra pasty's needed, 🤔😁 Note it's gone up on police numbers 5000, and just heard all the local residents do not like this 👍

Why Cornwall?

The UK is hosting the summit as president of the G7 for the year, and Carbis Bay has been chosen as the venue.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson described it as the "perfect location for such a crucial summit".

"Two-hundred years ago Cornwall's tin and copper mines were at the heart of the UK's industrial revolution and this summer Cornwall will again be the nucleus of great global change and advancement," he added.

It's hoped having the meeting there will also help boost tourism in the region.

As Wymberley states, the £65m legacy will help a lot of the local businesses.

The extra Police would have been required where-ever it was held.

Maybe something to do with the fact we have state of the art U.K. military facilities just nearby in Bude 🤷‍♂️
 

Then on top of that Cornwall is an iconic part of the U.K. they reckon Cornwall is a green / environmentally friendly power house. 

 

And has limited roads in and out making it easier to secure for such as important event?

Hello, there's an RAF airport near London , Cornwall is not a power house, as for the roads, ? Any road can be made secure, I am not saying it's not an important event but this area of Cornwall is not the place to hold this, they don't have very good facilities for those who live there, let alone those on holiday,

Are you sure that you've got the right Cornwall? There is an RAF airfield near St Ives and being a MDA has a runway which can take anything the Americans wish to land on it. I do think that you have the place confused. Cornwall is a dead end and you may well get in but you have to get out the same way. That could be a tad iffy. The only facilities the County does not have is affordable housing for its local folk because the countless incomers who know what's good for them have put the property prices up out of their reach - purchase or rent.

Hello, good post 👍 not forgetting the high unemployment amongst young people,

Spot on wymberley! G7's impact on Cornwall will be negative and is at present very detrimental to locals and local trade. My daughter is an occupational therapist and had to deliver a special bed to a patient in Cardboard Bay - despite the correct security being provided the vehicle containing the bed was refused entry to "The Ring of Steel" - they had to park in a supermarket car park half a mile away and push the bed (or rather, as it was downhill hold back the bed) to the patient's house. B & B's empty and shops and cafes closed. 

The skies have been full of aircraft for a good week before the event, VIP's transported by helicopter everywhere - so much for the environment!! Too risky to drive in convoy on our Cornish lanes as it would be nigh impossible to give protection ergo bring out the helicopters!

Utter stupidity concocted by a narcistic fantasist and his new wife!

Probably to pee off Macron. When he looks out of his hotel window, he will see all those fishing grounds he wants but cant have

There's plenty of EU boats still operating in the waters off North Cornwall. Take a look here if you're interested: https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/home/centerx:-5.7/centery:50.9/zoom:8

Somewhat frustratingly there's several of our patrol boats just offshore protecting the G7 rather than patrolling our coasts.

Dont hold back mate , say how you feel about Boris :lol:

 

I forgot another very good word that sums up Johnson and his crew of shysters - mendacious! The man cannot open his mouth without telling a lie.

Very interesting! There is a ground to air missile parked up at Godrevy (opposite coast to Cardboard Bay) if that's any good? I'm sure it can be adapted for surface use?

Even when G7 is over those boats will probably sail up the channel to perform their meet and greet duties in order to help Macron get rid of his immigrants.

Nothing "extra" about the Police. Its cancelled leave and rest days for them and their colleagues on their home force's. 

Couldn't it have been done on skype?

G7 (in alphabetical order):

  1. Canada
  2. France
  3. Germany
  4. Italy
  5. Japan
  6. UK
  7. USA

That makes 7.  

So why is Ursula van den Leyen there?  Either the EU is represented by the EU - or the countries (in this case France, Germany, Italy) by their own people.  Why both?  (I know Juncker used to go but I thought that was for the free booze).
