Let the capitalist machine roll onward!

Cardiff's newest shopping centre opened today and I went along to see what all the fuss was about. JKY's grandparents were ill so I had to take the day off to look after him. A trip to town was in order!

What I really wanted to see was the new Apple store, but when we got there, it was crazy with throngs of people desperate to get inside. Me and JKY would have to come back another time once everyone had calmed down...

Notice how this shopping centre is very cathedral-like .... worshippers gathering in the Unholy Church of Mammon!

Ah - the good old Apple store. I tried to get a job at their Bristol branch, but that's another story...

Store employees clapping and whooping like maniacs - Apple actually encourages this kind of behaviour.

The faithful of the Mammon cult surge forward the moment the doors to the cathedral open!

Outside, one of Red Dragon's finest (snigger) tried his best to whip up the crowd into some kind of capitalism-worshipping-materialistic-handbag-waving-frenzy.

Sadly, it didn't work...
