Bugger. Embarrasing to say the least, in my defence it was late

Please forgive me I did of course, mean competently.

I concur. I was very admirable of John's work, and - his bravery to come here and discuss any relevant issues with people here.

Regards,

Incidentally, regarding 'placing myself in the firing line', I never had a problem with coming on here to discuss the magazine. I always found ten-tenths the most rational of all discussion forums, in fact.

As regards 'can only do better than Mcilroy', my spell as editor has been, and will, in future, be judged not only on editorial content, but also (particularly within Haymarket) on the magazine's performance on the newsstand. Regardless of what some people thought of the content, and given their relative ignorance of the circumstances and infrastructure which everyone on the magazine has to cope with, I have reason to take great pride in both areas.

It is worth noting that this thread was started well over a year ago, and yet the total number of views is still fewer than the amount of issues that Autosport sells each week, on the British newsstand alone. Given that we are, I presume, all interested in motorsport, that any magazine based around our chosen sphere can still sell that many copies on a weekly basis is encouraging.

On the subject of Gary Watkins, incidentally, I found him a professional, dedicated and enthusiastic member of the editorial team, and greatly enjoyed working with him.

Regards to all as usual,

John

Since this has gone to 52 pages, I'm going to close this thread and set up a new one, giving a fresh start to a new year and beginning with hakkiman's post.
