Small but perfectly formed

Finally, I can announce that the badge order has been made, and I wait with bated breath for the finished product to arrive through my door, hopefully in about a week. After feedback from you, and a brief consultation with people I know, I have plumped for the smallest badge, small but perfectly formed at 25mm. Hopefully it will still be large enough to be read, understood, and, most importantly, noticed.
It will be accompanied by a card containing the address of my blog, and a request that the protest not be directed against First Great Western staff, as this seems to be a concern of many people.
I look forward to reporting on the success or otherwise of the campaign when it finally hits the streets, or rails, of the Thames Valley commuter belt. Please let me know if you'd like a badge sent to you, and don't forget to report back if you receive any attention or, even better, requests. I'm hoping to make the badge printing company very happy over the next few weeks and months. Hmmm, I wonder if blogging is a tax-deductable expense?

Hi There,

Thanks for the link, I would definately like a badge to wear with pride on my commute.

What slogan did you go for in the end?

I hate FGW said...

You're very welcome, always nice to have the support of a fellow blogger.
It will come as no surprise to you that in the end, the phrase "I hate First Great Western" was decided upon. I will shortly be setting up a new e-mail account so that people can send me their addresses for badges without publishing them on the internet.

Can it get any worse? I hear FGW are to lose some of the carriages they have borrowed to get them out of the last mess. With no replacements planned, it looks as though things will go back to bad, come May, when they have to give the borrowed carriages back!!
