Photo Article: Joshua meets his idol, Thomas the Tank Engine

The Watercress Line was established to take cress from the clean chalk rivers of Hampshire up to Covent Garden. Closed by Dr Beeching it is now a steam railway and last weekend it started its annual, two week, Thomas and friends event. My son Joshua lives and breathes Thomas, Percy, Gordon and Henry and so his godfather Lucian who lives near the line arranged for a day out. The first photo of the buggy store shows my boy is not the only Thomas obsessive.

And thereafter Joshua met his hero, had a ride on a mini train as well as on Thomas and on an express to Arlesford where we met Terence the traction engine and Bertie Bus before a visit to a local trout stream to see the fishes, ducks and swans. Finally the view from the car park as we left and the last train of the day pulled out.

Iconic Labs – Toxic David Sefton still behind the scenes pulling strings working with Tory MP Damian Collins

On 30 December 2019, as I highlighted in my article of the same day, toxic Dave Sefton resigned from Board of Iconic (ICON) admitting that he had become a PR liability following a series of exposes on this website about how he had used company funds at Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) to benefit his private interests and had then lied about repaying those funds which he has still not done in full.Sefton is thus utterly toxic but behind the scenes and a trio of directors each earning £200,000, toxic Dave remains very much active behind the scenes at this company operating with almost no revenue and racking up steep losses..  He is involved in both Infotagion and also the London Economic deals that Iconic has announced.
