    and more astoundingly, the herald is actually supposed to be a newspaper, not a local version of the onion that can't afford a proofreader

    I especially love the line "Caffe Nero on Lemon Quay was so busy that I couldn't even get a quote from a member of staff" which reads more like a note to themselves or their editor than a piece of journalism.

    two sheds not as daft as i look

    no, you have to get a quote for the coffee and show you've got enough cash to cover it before they'll serve you

    they don't do actual journalism. the job qualification seems to be the ability to write 'we love plymouth, we hate cornwall' 100x. spelling optional

    I did actually think that first time I read it. Why would you get a quote from a Caffe Nero? Isn't the price list on the wall? Maybe Truro really is that innovative that it's pushing the boundaries of coffee pricing.

    and the herald's only jealous because Plymouth and Bristol are still really part of Greater Cornwall.

    Lovely, I'm sure that it will enrich that special street market ambience. Christmas is only 37 shopping days away.

    Sister and her kids were looking forward to going on Saturday and ended up spending less than an hour there because it was too busy. Couldn't help laughing.

    It's that mini fairground that does it. Kids come from all over to throw up on that roundabout.

    That's just them learning how to behave in cities when they grow older.

    i'm walking distance so when lass wants to go in there, she can take herself so i don't have to suffer. she will learn eventually why cheap clothing in this house always comes from charity shops, not primark. and probably curse loads that there's another shop in town that dosen't do women's shoes her size

    They are an odd paper. They seem to only report on what happens in the time zone of 1867, which is what Plymouth is stuck in, currently. They report on old people falling over, buses being 3 minutes late, and how much a tree has grown.

    Odd isn't it. It's almost as though there is very little crime here to report on.

    Or the crimes that they don't want to report on...?

    Propoganda for the southwests giant shithole? ☝️

    I went into Primark in Truro on Thursday. It's just as skanky as all the others.

    Don't even get me started on the pathetic excuse for a Debenhams. It's no bigger than a corner shop.

    But at least they have a decent sized TK Maxx.
