I don't know whether to be flattered or flabbergasted but CP Boy seems to think that I wrote the article in the previous post! As always he misses the point entirely and also manages to get a dig in at the S&D - which he detests - and by extension all of us who are bringing it back.
Here we go -
I don't know how you think this stuff up. Well done. Still no reason to bring back a defunct railway that was hopeless even when it was running. Ah well dream on.
Well, whoever CP Boy thinks I am, surely even he realises that I neither live in Denmark or freelance for the Guardian? I wish!! For those of you still with me on this the original article - clearly written by Jason Heppenstall - can be found here.
And why would anyone claim the S&D was 'hopeless'? It did an extraordinary job under difficult circumstances, as well as creating a linear work of art through Wessex. So not only does he hate the S&D now, and all of us working towards it, but besmirches EVERYONE who has EVER worked to make it the wonderful thing it was and is.
To his credit CP Boy does manage to write a whole comment without one swear word, difficult for a 14 year old, or mention how 'stupid' workers at Midsomer Norton, Midford, Gartell, Shillingstone, Washford and Spetisbury are - probably the first time he's been so restrained! Perhaps we're beginning to convert him to the future after all ...
