'Apathy gone strangely quiet'? Is that a tripple negative? How many people have been through after the rush of the first week? What do you mean by 'apathy'.The complete lack of interest or the endless warnings of another boob? I see that some are being graceful enough to keep the 'I told you so' comments reasonably low key.
I don't know anyone called mj who lives in Mutley. You a newcomer?
'Jannerdome' is a little bit patronising though to the people of Plymouth. A Janner isn't necessarily a person who was born in Plymouth, but someone with the negative, depressing, anti-change attititude which can easily be obtained from others living in our great city. Hence the apathy towards the shopping centre, which I notice has gone strangely quiet since it opened, hmmm, I wonder why?

nah, a triple negative is negative concord, like "i've not done nothing to nobody". Close though. I haven't seen the figures since the first week, but have been in there and can see it's still incredibly busy. Even Mary O'Leary, an anti-Drakes Circus opponent if ever there was one, is suprisingly positive in her article in the Herald today.
I'm not sure if people could genuinely back up "I told you so" comments, because to do that you need facts, and at the moment the facts are supporting the shopping centre.
I didnt realise you knew everyone in Mutley, but anyway, mj is a pseudonym, so maybe I have been here before, maybe not.

Muttley is a village.A pretentious chip shop, a fair variety of expensive pubs,an excess of well meaning charity shops and less useful estate agents, a strangely popular protestant church which totally emerses and a bottom of the heap uninspiring private school.Apart from the students there are few locals. If you lived there even camouflaged by a pseudo nim I'm sure I'd have met you.

well in that case, you must have met me.

I'd love to know what pubs in Mutley are expensive though. And Perillas, pretentious? That's like saying Francine's are comparable to Nobu!

So you too have queued at Francine's? Were your tyres slashed while you waited?

As to Perilla's have you been to any other chip shop where they give you a ticket like at Waitrose deli and insist you don't leave the shop for fear they might get confused?

I have indeed had the pleasure of queing at Francine's, luckily I can keep an eye on the car from the counter!

I must admit, I've never been to another chip shop where they give you a ticket, but as you say it's just because they get confused, it does get busy in there. Personally, it's rare for me to defend the place, usually the opposite, but on this occasion I feel it's warranted!

You wait so long at Perilla's that you need to go to Somerfield or Threshers for provisions and still have time for a 2.80 pint in The Mannamead or a gay friendly short at the Fortescue, and still get back before they've fried the fish.

The Fort's still a gay bar?! I agree it can take ages to get food in Perilla's, which is one of the reasons I rarely go there. Fortunately there are other fast food places nearby where the term 'fast' is more apt.

I'm sure you can get a cheaper pint in the Mannamead than 2.80!

You won't live long if you feast exclusively from the Caspian,

Can you believe that Plymothians are so undiscriminating that they still have coleslaw on their kebabs? And on almost everything else they eat!

Caspian, no way, I much prefer Ceasars Food Bar!! It would be fantastic if we got a proper Turkish restaurant in Plymouth serving real kebabs, sans coleslaw of course!

I think 'Jannerdrome' has a nice sound and appeal. I wouldn't put people off using it.Any idea that makes people regard it as a friendly local facility is good. 'PLymouth International' never rang true and given the lack of international flight was a bit silly and pretentious.
