Just for the record, the 'majority' of Arnold Estate residents are not against the market. In Jane's previous post she rightly said ' many for, many against' at the meeting on 11 August.

I suppose it depends where one lives on the Arnold. Those living in the blocks abutting Druid Street at the thick - and therefore most affected - are likely to be against, whereas those in the blocks on Tanner Street, Jamaica Road, Abbey Street end, etc are likely to be indifferent.

Well, that's ONE theory, which may or may not be correct.

...if you press it, they will come.

Care to share your OTHER theories, Ivanhoe?

I don't really see any point in putting forward theories that can't be proved.

It would look too much like I was taking biased opinions and presenting them as fact.

Which, of course, would be contrary to reasonable debate, as I'm sure you'd agree.

Well, instead of skirting around the edges and not coming out with it, what is YOUR view of the matter? This is a debate about the Druid Street market causing annoyance/misery to local residents. Are you participating or just making comments from the side line?

I'm interested, but don't have facts, so I'm watching the discussion develop.

Is that OK with you?

Over a year on, the market thrives and grows and there will no doubt be more debate when The Marquis of Wellington reopens in November.
Can't wait to see this.

But the people who went to that pub in the past and got drunk there are different to the people who might be going there now and getting drunk so it should definitely be opposed.

I passed by the market last Saturday and it was awful - decent food, people drinking respectfully, no shouting or aggressive behaviour, local traders doing well - what a nightmare.

Is the pub being opposed? I can't imagine why, yet another local establishment that's no longer for the locals.

I wonder why you are so passionate about a market that you merely pass by, it feels like a kind of reverse reverse snobbery.

In other words, &%$^ the locals.
