Villiers Vignettes - The sound of silence

This from The Banker...

Cruella was in Leeds this lunchtime on what I think is called a 'whistlestop'.

Sadly no whistle in evidence nor indeed any announcement.


Nothing at all!

Not even a re-announcement!

There might be 100 additional coaches (sorry, carriages!) for Yorkshire, then again there might not.

Who knows?

The Hammond Organs of course refused to say in advance what the visit was all about.

So, predictably, local media ignored it, with just a crowd of three forlornly gathered...

How unlike those euphoric days when cheering crowds thronged the streets to salute the Saviour of the Jammy Dodger!

UPDATE: This from a Mr Mitchell....

Perhaps the reason for the low turnout in Leeds was due to confusion amongst the Tykes about who is actually responsible for today's railways.

This from local rag the Wakefield Express...

Theresa who?
