Once again some poor person has had the temerity to suggest that Mortimer Bones’ column is a waste of column inches and should be stopped. (Canal Boat Magazine Aug 2011 Letters pg 19). What this sad person fails to realise, as did the last complainer, is that it is not supposed to be serious. It’s Bones talking about Bones. Methinks a bit of jealousy is showing. That’s fine, but, either show the CB editor you can do it better; or shut up.
I asked Bones if she had seen the letter, her reply? “I thought it was disappointingly short, though at least they hate me enough not to go on about it.”
