Residents of a village earmarked as the location to build a new IKEA complex have put the project to bed today with "rigorous campaigning". They flocked to the local do-it-yourself shop to show their support, buying anything conducive to arming a makeshift-opposition-battalion. One villager armed with a nail gun and rounds of nails strapped to his chest claimed, "I'm just down from London for the buzz yeah, but most of these guys are pretty serious about it all."
The Project Manager for the new IKEA has admitted assembly of the shop is now unlikely after several hiccoughs in the planning stage. "The IKEA pack I ordered came with only half a set of instructions to put it together. Yes, I can put 'carpark A' into 'outer-shop-wall-C', but after that the instructions are missing, unless you know any Polish. To make matters worse, one villager threw a handful of the wrong sized dowels in with the others so quite frankly, we're screwed."
The owner of the local DIY store said, "These IKEA guys are just here to chisel me out of my dues, so the town lads have offered to smooth things over for me. And they should watch out cos a few of 'em have a screw or two loose."
It is believed he has also filed an official complaint.
