He even said you can get a decent pasty just about anywhere in the country
A writer has brazenly hit out at Cornwall in an impassioned rant about the clichés of the county, calling it the most overrated holiday destination of all.
And, perhaps surprisingly, many locals seem to agree with him.
Writing for The Telegraph, Chris Moss went on a brave tirade in an article published yesterday in which he explains he has never understood what the fuss is about, claiming to speak “the truth” about what he calls “the Cornwall Conspiracy”.
Mr Moss, who admits to not having holidayed here as a child, gives many reasons for his disdain towards the county, including it being “miles from almost anywhere” and claiming that the things one might come for – peace and tranquillity – are “made insufferable or impossible” because of the many others trying to do the same.
He claims the county is oversold as a holiday destination and as a result he is personally aching for a holiday elsewhere in Britain, offering up plenty of alternative suggestions.
At one point he even claims – outrageously – to be able to get a decent pasty from just about anywhere else in the country – something you would have thought Cornish folk would shudder at the thought of.
But they didn’t, and many in Cornwall seem to agree with his points.
