Original:

Millenium Dome chiefs have refused to discuss reports they ignored advice attendance figures at the attraction would be lower than hoped.

My interpetation:

Millenium Dome chiefs have refused to discuss reports (that) they ignored advice (that) attendance figures at the attraction would be lower than hoped.

Is it a correct interpretation of the sentence above?

And this one:

The Sunday Times says the Millenium Commission warned Dome owners the new Millenium Experience Company its own estimate was between 4.5m and 5m.

Have no idea.

Thanks

Lots of omitted "thats."

They won't discuss the reports. The reports say that they (the chiefs) ignored advice. The advice was that the attenendance would be lower than they had hoped.

I believe, with the second one, that the Millienium (aren't there two n's?) Commission had estimated between 4.5 and 5 million. And that they informed the Dome owners of these estimate. Is "the new Millennium Experience Company" the Dome owners? It would be cleaer if that was set off by commas.

Hi Incho

In my opinion both sentences are ungrammatical, which probably means I won't get a beer. Never mind, I don't particularly like Newcastle Brown Ale anyway.Emotion: smile

Newspaperese, perhaps; rather than ungrammatical.
