Athletes have started arriving for the Olympics. Are you excited?

Yes, the greatest sporting show on earth is in this country (19%)
No, some of the sports are boring and too much of it is in London (81%)

Total Vote Count 628

Have your say

Who would believe that Cumbria (not Ireland) gave the world the word "Craic" (or "Crack") as is "The best of spirits"....
What's the matter with 81% of you.
Give the government a break; enjoy the games. After a while soon we'll have the whole of the winter to curse the darkness.

May their years of training and dedicated efforts be rewarded with happy memories that they will treasure.

As for you lot: as my good mate Dave keeps telling me: "CHILLAX!"

Unexpectedly huge negative vote.
Could this, by any chance, be the result of a massive assault on your site by a cross-border party of REIVERS?
They are at their work again. Can you enforce a border on a website?

Are we neglecting north Cumbria's heritage and tourist attractions while concentrating on the Lake District?

Yes, the Lakes have always taken all the investment

No, nothing in the north can compare with anything the Lake District

Nothing will change now. We are Cumbria's forgotten corner
