Lesley Anne Baines: "Yet they objected to Ikea! .. go figure!
John Price: "We all know it's never a 1000 jobs, 100 if your lucky. With automation and robotics you just don't need the staff."

Dave Skinner: "With no potential customers to operate it who is financing the build?"
"I presume Government grants & incentives to the developer which indirectly coming out of the Taxpayers pocket!!"

David Taylor: "More Greenland being stripped away.. Sad."
