‘We’ve had Biden’s security and US marines here’: Cornwall crowds enjoy G7 circus
Holidaymakers in the seaside town close to the summit were fascinated by the cavalcade of security. And local traders saw a chance to make some money
They seem to have shovelled this particular stinking load of propaganda out based on talking to some tourists. When they got round to the locals it seems that they contradicted that "local traders saw a chance to make some money" line:
[i]Many tourism businesses have been a little quieter, with day-trippers put off by the warning signs on the main route into Cornwall telling people to keep away.
Graeme Parkhill, manager of the Pengenna Pasties shop, said he had served fewer tourists.
When it comes to the locals they seem to have a type:
While many St Ives residents have fled, others have stayed and enjoyed the event. GP Jane Lucas-McGrath and her husband, account manager Andy, who live on the hill above the harbour, said their children, Alfie, four and Olivia, 19 months, were relishing the excitement. “We’re going to let Alfie stay up late to see the Red Arrows,” said Jane.
Rah rah rah. "Many St Ives residents have fled", i.e. those who can afford to just disappear for a week; all the normal folk have to stay and take it in the ass.
This is scraping the bottom of the barrel even for these clowns.
