    It seems to me allowing passengers to travel into Euston, via the tube (I assume) and out of Paddington is rather an extreme way of allowing people to use alternative services when there are buses from Reading to Basingstoke.

    Also why not allow people to go from Reading to go to Westbury to connect with Southampton and Portsmouth?

    and heaven knows where Southern came from unless they think people for Southampton/ Portsmouth should go to Euston then tube to Victoria to get a train?

    I presume they mean that one can go from Southampton to Victoria via Southern for no extra charge, which is jolly decent of them.
    Anyway, thanks for that piece of information, it may come in useful should I decide to go somewhere later.

    Yes but have you ever done Victoria to Southampton on a direct train?

    ...It takes a while ;)
