How magnificently monotonous.
Just when I had reconciled myself to the prospect of the usual tedious tie-break for 'Most boring letter to the editor 2008' involving those past masters of the genre Kitty Maswell, Jim Pasqual and Cllr Peter Thompson, up pops Amanda Burton (September 25) with her simply stunning sleep-inducing saga of the perils of parking at The Centre and the trauma of the temperamental traffic lights at the junction of Feltham High Street and Highfield Road, thus propelling her into the lead with but three boring months to go.
But at least one of the contenders, Mr Jim Pasqual, will surely be left with one coveted trophy at year's end.
His latest contribution (September 25), a mysterious meandering through numerous mind-numbing cross references: Zimbabwe, Heathrow, Rhodesia, Sipson Village, poor rural Africans and the 'door of the headmaster's study', means the 'Rambling Sid Rumpole' rosette is his for the taking.
