Back to normal tomorrow, with the return to work after the all-too-short and amazingly hot and busy Eastertide break; it’s also time to draw a line under the events of the last week on Omnibuses.
One commenter said “Why all the drama?” In hindsight, a good point well made. If only we had foresight…
Via a poll, I asked whether this site should continue. There were fewer votes than I anticipated, though when a serious story a month ago accused Sir Terry Wogan of being paid £9,000 per appearance on Children in Need, it attracted just 53 comments on a national newspaper site (and only one was in support of Wogan).
There’s a clear view that Omnibuses should go on. And that’s what I feel I should do, even though I am somewhat tired, exhausted and battered by what I have done, as I yawn through this post at nearly midnight. In spite of that, I am already missing posting here.
In recognition of this decision, I have removed the recently uploaded end-of-the-road “T junction” symbol visible in the address bar (if you are reading this via Firefox, Safari or IE7).
The archive will be up and running properly soon, as will all the links.
Those reading via Bloglines will need to bear with me as I resurrect some of the deleted posts – I apologise that this may disrupt the Bloglines service.
Finally, one person mentions that he might be willing to help out. Perhaps he could become a partner on this site, rather like our Northern Correspondent. Or even jointly author it. I would invite that person to leave his email addy in the Comment box to this post so that I can get in touch. Comment moderation is still “on” for now, which means no one need see that email address, if that is his desire. I will guarantee anonymity. The same applies to anyone else.
Finally, finally… I am again sorry for the disruption I have caused.
My thanks to those who commented positively:
“Please keep the blog going. I only found this a few weeks ago, and I very much enjoy the news and comments...”
“… I certainly hope you continue, even if you don’t post so often. This is my first blog of the day, and I have about 50 on my reading list!”
“Absolutely agree... you are doing a good job.”
“Please DO keep the blog going if you can... even if it means posting less often... it's always an interesting read!“
“… Would miss this blog if you really do wish to stop it…”
“Gosh, I do hope… you haven't jacked it in… that really would be a shame...”
"Your work was appreciated at least by me and I have been reading [this blog] for nearly two years now"
