A Christmas message to Charles Horton (MD, Southeastern)

During this festive season of peace and good will to all, it is a time to think about the less fortunate among us. Those who have seen their train services reduced, journey times increased and have been excluded from the Southeastern highspeed network. A time to reflect on those who have struggled to manage and deliver adequate services and have been berated by passengers and the media alike.

As a New Year grows closer it is an occasion when we welcome something new in our lives and at the same time, forget about all the bad memories which the passing year gave us. As the rail consumer ghosts of Christmas past, present and future wait in the viaducts. Perhaps now would be the time to have the foresight and wisdom to extend the highspeed network to Deal. There is something for everyone in Deal whether your passion is golf, angling, rowing, shopping or perhaps a walk along the pier, a day at the beach, a visit to the castle or just to sample the local cuisine.

Deal has a town motto of 'Adjuvate Advenas' which for those not familiar with Latin is translated into "Befriend a Stranger"....

Merry Christmas Charles Horton
