Re: Help save the middle class holiday maker!

I hope you now feel ashamed of yourself as further up the country people are losing their lives and people are having their lives ruined and what point are you trying to make as I am a working person who cannot afford to own her own house yes just outside London the same kind of people someone like you detests and I wish that I could afford my own home but sadly I cannot I will never be able to it seems esp where I grew up, yes I do understand what you are trying to say about these mega rich people but there are a lot of people in the same position up and down the country it may not be on the level of a tsunami but not just cornish people are having their lives destroyed this minute Lucy Ellis!!!

Re: Help save the middle class holiday maker!

Your in-depth knowledge of Boscastle is impressive, as is your grasp of irony.

For a start, it's never been a fishing port: it grew from the slate business.

Perhaps more to the point, the flooding was news because

a. all sorts of places are vulnerable to flooding, as later events were to prove


b. people from the other side of the Tamar consider Boscastle very beautiful, and are concerned for the safety of the place.

One can only assume you're the same 'Lucy Ellis' who keeps getting their posts deleted from Cornwall24 ...
