    It's right next to the station, so I've seen it when I've gone to get the coach to Stansted a few times. Looks utterly hideous, but you could probably have guessed that.

    We went to see that film about Thatcher at Westfield there, we were really bombed and got followed round by security guards and told to take our hoodies down - it was when it was fucking freezing - and then we did loads of drugs in the cinema and shouted at the screen. It was fun. I don't recognise Stratford anymore, it's like a spaceship landed on the place.

    It is weird. We got a train from Stratford Internatlonal a few months ago and it was a surreal experience because the mall wasn't open and nothing in the station (which is the size of a village) was open. It was just a vast airhanger of nothingness waiting to be activated by The Olympics - one of us was really late so we had to kick around for ages doing nothing - there was a space where you could park a jumbo jet and nothing in it except one guy with a small table selling coffee. When one of us dropped their coffee they had to send out for cloths to clean it up. We went and sat outside in the building site cos it was slightly more interesting.

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Scarp-Nick-P...1488651&sr=1-1

    that's in answer to your question Sufi, it has nothing to do with Stratford.
