It'll never open on the 17th, April. Never! There's more chance of my breasts lactating rum than there is of those tills ringing out following a transaction between Waitrose and their first customer.
The whole place is covered in building materials, building machinery, mud, sand, and endless hazards that'll prevent anyone skipping in safely and being able to carry out a transaction.
Mark my words, the Health and Safety Executive will involve themselves in this foolhardy decision to start trading and the opening date will get shoved back into May at the very earliest. Not a chance and anyone who says Im wrong is someone who has a different opinion to me!

Blimey Bobby. Surely e'en ye must be tempted by the titbits which will be proffered by this establishment.
I, along with the missus and the bin lids, will be there for bolt sliding on the very first day in a bid to taste the quality of their stuffed olives and frittata.
Even if it happens that I have circumnavigate a mound of sand or pile of rubble!

I agree though, it's only 9 weeks or so and that does seem rather ambitious.
Do you have breasts?

I note 150 jobs are to be created - so that leaves just over 850 more to create then or Jarvis Cockup is a fibber.

Yes TwoWheels, its all been a monumental lie. The construction was supposed to create hundreds of jobs for local Herefordians. Actually, only one in ten local Herefordians ever managed to get work.
As for your arithmetic, yes it was a 'thousand jobs'. A thousand jobs that would create wealth for our fragile economy. When the full count of employment is added up, it'll be somewhere in the region of between four and five hundred, and, for the most part, all the jobs will be very poorly paid.
It's all been a lie. Each promise shattered as the salty bricks have been laid to produce this horror of a building.
Not one single shop will be allowed to leave High Town for the promised land. Not one they said. Now things are very different. The doors have been flung wide open in a frenzy to fill the units that no outsider trader wanted.
If only this was the end of this sorry tale. It's not. It has many chapters to run before the full enormity of this calamitous development finally kicks us all in the testicles.
High Town destroyed! The Butter Market in ruins and Rockfield Road Car Park an acquisition and outcome that our Council say, 'WE ARE COMFORTABLE WITH'. Near on six million quid and they are 'comfortable,
You asked recently, 'how far must we sink before the end is in sight?' My answer to you is, 'we've only just begun our decent and the bottom is some way off as we hurtle ever downwards into this pit of despair and economic madness created for all of us by Jarvis and his associates.
We are ruined and there's no way back. Oh, some will console themselves and say, 'ain't it a lovely cinema', but, in time, and its all a matter of time, the penny will drop and people will become cognisant that we've all been fooled by asset strippers dressed in smart suits who took full advantage of the stupidity of our Council Cabinet.

Yeah, nobody's! Fair enough. More than fair. That's a label I'll easily carry with me. I've no problem with that little appendage. Mind, we are highly intelligent nobody's who have a grasp on simple and straightforward economics and its this that sets us apart from the herd who have yet to have their eyes opened to the impact this madness will have on the future generation of Herefordians who's task will be to repair 'all these things that they've done'.
My warmest regards B the B.

B the B , that was a silly ill thought out comment.

This is an appalling blight. A monument to incompetence and greed. Tax payers money lining the pockets of developers, bumbling self serving politicians.
The 'restaurants' on this site are chains unconnected to Hereford and purveying non-local produce.
The shops are chains, selling the products of thrid world sweatshops and exploitation.

This is what you look forward to?
Or perhaps it makes you feel special to dissent from the poular view. I've got some bad news for you. It's boring.

My warmest regards to you bobby but.....
You may well have a grasp on the situation but doesn't mean that you have the right grasp, that is your view and I accept this, I don't believe its the right view however, luckily not everyone sees this development like you and moaning mizza. The intelligence brag is yet to be proven, time will tell my friend.
The only negative comments I hear about this development are on here, and they can be tracked down to a handful of people, If this is a major flop then I would agree that you are "Highly Intelligent".
Moaning mizza you desperately need to get a grip .

Of course the most notable thing about your post B the B is that you haven't tackled any of the substance of what I or the King have said?

I rest my case..
