Speaking from another area of the publishing universe, you can't please all of the people all of the time, indeed if you please some you are doing well, so give the lad a breather (publishers are like oil-tankers to change course and usually need to think its their idea too), so rather than being first to throw oil on the fire give him some space, some time to prove himself and then decide whether to aplaud the brass neck or turn away. There are an awfull lot of interests competing for time and space and he has to juggle them all, so lets let him make his own mind up. After all he does say he's one of us volunteer types and not just a journalist. Over to you chap. Oh and I for one am looking forward to Tornado regardless of the moral debate of the ethics of new build over restoration and all that gubbins.
