    Call me a cynic but isn't this just another thing which First Capital Connect does which has been taken on by East Coast, ;)

    It won't be the first thing (pardon the pun) or the last thing which FCC has done so well that East Coast sees fit to use not that it's a bad thing!

    Still it makes life easier for 2013 when First get the ICEC franchise :)

    I have no intention of calling you a cynic. But . . . . . .

    Anyway, if EC treat the dialogue this 'forum' creates with their usual platitudes, distorted figures, positive spin and assurances that they want to listen, then I might just have an uncontrollable fit of vomiting (but fortunately, the mess won't amount to much, because their evening meals don't amount to much).

    I struggle to think of any other Company which has put so much effort into destroying an established, respected and valuable brand-image while attempting to cover up that destruction with spin, marketing and by substituting value with words, while still trying to increase its market profile and, of course, its market share.

    This latest propsal for an on-line forum clinches my proposal to nominate East Coast for my annual Award for the UK Company which, when faced with a challenge, doesn't waste time on doing anything, but instead decides what they wil be saying about it.
    East Coast? You are the winners!

    Timing is courageous the day after the FC menu changes come in. If I don't like the new hot options, I'll have my PA log in and comment to EC.
